There are several things to consider:
Card Format - Meaning how the SD card files are allocated on the drive, like FAT32 (Windows) and ext4 (Linux). If they don't match you may not be able to interchange.
File Format - If both are the same drive format, then most media files are interchangeable. Like AVI and JPG. These are two universal type files.
Application Files - Have to adhere to the above, plus be readable by application. Like a PDF file may not be accessible to what ever Office suite you are trying use.

This is standard practice world wide, so I hope it makes sense and you can use. GL

I put an SD card in to get more storage and I don't know if it is acknowledging the card because when I want to download it still tells me that I don't have sufficient storage.


Unfortunately, the SD card in most tablets and cell phones doesn't get used efficiently. Most apps will not load onto the SD cards since the developers don't write the programs to run from them. Thus, you are limited to what's in the tablet or phone natively. The only thing the SD card does mostly is to allow you to store more pictures and video files. Some apps will put their data there, but you must direct them to do so in the app management menu. Until manufacturers put more memory in the devices or programmers write the apps for the SD card, that's the way things will remain.

How can my tablet read the sd card again?


reset it without the sd card installed.
also...if you have a card reader on your computer....put the sd card in it and see if there is anything on the card. You may have deleted everything on the card by reseting your tablet with the card in it.

pictures should already be loaded to SD card... if not, you probably need to format SD card and then try again. I've had issues with SD cards going from laptop to Tab 3 but my pics taken with my camera always load to SD card. Now pictures I have downloaded from the internet I can open up in my Gallery, tap the picture and then hit settings and move to SD card

Take Off Write Protection on an SD Card
Secure Digital (SD) flash memory cards are a common storage format for mobile devices.
By default, they allow both reading from and writing to the card.
However, they can be set so you can only read from the cards and not write to them.
Some cards are created as read-only by default.
Other times, a faulty card reader may mistakenly read all cards as read-only.
In both cases, you can make simple changes to the card to disable the write protection.

1.
Orient the card so the label is facing up.
Slide the write protection tab, which is located on the left side of the card, to the unlocked position.
If there is no write protection tab, skip to Step 4.
2.
Test the card in your computer.
Insert the card in the SD slot and open the folder to view the files.
Try to save a file onto the card or right-click an existing file and select "Properties," then uncheck the box marked "Read-only."
3.
Remove the card and check to see the write tab is still set to "unlocked" if you get a message that says it is still write-protected.
If it has become locked again, slide it back and tape it in the unlocked position.
4.
Place a piece of masking tape over the notch in the SD card located on the right side of the card. Make sure the tape does not cover any of the card's metal contacts.
Test again as in Step 2.
5.
Cover the notch with a second layer of tape if the card is still giving you problems.

Samsung tablet 7.0 will not turn on


Note: These steps clear data from the device. SD card data like your photos and music are not erased unless you choose to format the SD card.

2. Release the Power button when you see the Samsung logo, but continue to hold Volume Upuntil the recovery screen appears.

3. Use the Volume buttons to navigate the menu and select wipe data / factory reset. PressHome to choose the selection.

4. Press Volume Up continue.

The Galaxy Tab should then go through the hard reset process.

If you have access to the OS, you can also perform a hard reset in Settings.

1. Open the Settings app.

2. Select Privacy.

3. Choose Factory data reset.

Need to transfer music files and pictures from my apple computer to samsung galaxy tab, how to do it?


Try connecting the Galaxy to your computer with the included USB cable. Then, select the notification (open the notification drawer by pulling down on the status bar) that says USB cable connected and follow the steps to mount your SD Card. At this point, the Tab should appear as a device/driver in Finder. If not, try connecting them to the same network and try something like On Air from the Market to connect over-the-air.
Since you are using an Android, you don't have to use anything like iTunes to transfer music and pictures. Simply copy them onto a folder on the SD card and then browse to them on the Tab using My Files and open them in whatever app you use. If you would prefer a proper syncing arrangement, try the free DoubleTwist app and corresponding Mac application to connect your device.
