Camera App Ask for SD Card

2011-09-17, 5:34 AM

I just discovered a new issue with the K1.

I use the Camera App and I get a prompt that says:

Please insert an SD card before using the camera.

 

I have a Micro SD card in there.  I have not have this problem

before.  Camera works before even without the SDcard, now it 

doesn't work at all, with or without the card.

 

The tablet has been quite unstable esp. after the auto-update.

 

I am seriously thinking of returning this gadget.

could you try reinserting the SD card while the camera app is on . Once that is done, do inform if it still ask for it to be inserted

I am pretty sure the way that the K1 mounts the SDCARD makes it useless.  It mounts the card within the SDCARD folder.  This is a pretty bad bug that needs to be addressed.

well i did all that and nothing works. i eventually did a factory reset and things corrected itself. i have to agree with someone on the forum that after the "update" the tablet should perform a factory reset.

That the K1 didn't mount the SD card properly is a different issue, but a quick heads up about the camera:

There's a toggle within the app for saving to the internal storage versus the removable SD card.  If it is set to removable SD, you'll get the "Please insert SD card..." message unless a card is properly mounted.

That said, even with an SD card inserted, it may still be set to save pictures to the internal storage instead of the external SD card.  If you want the pictures saved to removable media by default, check the toggle in the app, highlighted in red.  This is set to save to external SD on a K1 w/o a microSD card:

That is most likely your issue, because its location is bad, you press it easily when trying to turn over to video or vice versa.
