Hello All.

I have a Tab A SM-T580 and i am wanting to move photos and videos off my camera micro sd card to my Tab A.
Is there a specific card reader i must use or specific cable i need to do this?

I have tried a normal usb to micro usb lead but the Tab A did not recognize my card reader.

Cheers
Karl.

You would use an OTG cable and a suitable card reader. You can find one on Amazon or eBay for cheap.

One workaround that I've used is putting photos videos etc (card reader>usb>your pc) in a folder onto a thumbdrive and connect that via usb to mini-usb adapter to the tablet, navigate to the folder and move it to the tablet. The only glitch is occasionally my Tab A doesn't want to recognize the thumbdrive, but more often than not it does ...
