Switch Charging Modes

Clear Cached Data

  • Choose Settings on the device and navigate to Internal Storage.
  • You need to select Cached Data and clear it completely.
  • Wait for the process to finish and try to access the memory card again.

Clear System Cache

  • Turn off the Android tablet and after the device is turned off completely, hold down the Power and Volume Up buttons together until the Android logo is displayed on the device.
