    Hi Tina and welcome to PinStack!

    Your operating system must be at version 4.3 or later in order to use an 8gb card. I'm pretty sure the OS on your new 8100 is 4.2.x (you can check by going to Options>About and the version is the third line down) which would mean a 4gb card max.

    Hope this helps!

    Roger

    Thanks for your help. Would you be able to post a link to the lastest OS? thank you
    Also is there a guide somewhere for installing the OS and desktop manager?

    Here is a link for an "official" release of the 4.5 OS for your device:

    I believe there is a more current BETA release for the 8100, but forum rules prohibit us from posting or soliciting links for beta releases.

    Here are detailed instructions on upgrading your OS:

    And you might want to read through the following thread to learn your way around PinStack:
