I`m new and this is my first post, so apologies if the matter is covered elsewhere, but I couldn`t find anything.
I`m a 10 G2 4Gb machine user and am looking to add a micro sd card, but am unsure what is the max capacity I can use i.e. if the system max is 32 GB and it has 4Gb already must I stay below 28 (which means 16 in reality) or can I stick a 32 GB card in and have all the capacity for movies?
Secondly, what speed class of card is needed? For my video camera with AVCHD a class 10 is recommended, but I can`t see that being necessary for the tablet.
Thanks in advance for any advice
I currently don't have a SD of that capacity to check but you should have no problem using one and get the full use of the 32 Gb, in addition to the 4 Gb on the tablet. Having at least a Class 6 is probably great to play HD movies, Class 10 would be even faster but is more expensive. The Samsung 32 Gb microSD reviewed in our Blog is an affordable option.
If you don't have particular speed requirements, a Class 4 card should do the job just fine.

I only got the 16Gb and have not filled it, but have suffered the same "not enough memory" as you. I`m still trying to find a suitable book to let me understand how Android/Linux works - certainly different from Windows!
Anyway, about the your problem. Can you see the micro sd card when you explore the files on the tablet? If so, then it is available to the system, but unlike pc ram, it does not seem to get used as the system needs it - more like an extra HDD (hence my comment above about trying to find a book about it all). It would appear that you have to select and put things there. I have put pictures, videos and apps there manually by using the free apps - apps2sd which looks at what apps you have and then transfers them if you want to and Androfile which allows you to view files anywhere on the system and allows you to cut/copy/paste files and create new folders.
I`m sure the built in files app does the same, but Androfile was ranked well, so I downloaded that.
I still get the memory message, though less frequently and have found that if I try again it often works second time around.
If anybody else can offer better tips and/or any good books, I should be most grateful.
Sorry I haven`t replied before, but have been on hols
