Ellipsis7 SD card issues

SD cards do not stay mounted in my Ellipsis7. When inserted they show up as storage via settings. However, not long after they disappear from the system, even though they have not been touched (i.e popped out of SD slot). this is happening with both SD cards I have tried. Both cards work fine and stay mounted in all other devices I have tried them in. Do I have a faulty tablet? I've had the tablet less than a week should I return it before 14 day return period is up?

got a newer faster card (SC-10/UHS-1) and issue seems to have gone away. Both first (16 GB; failed) and current(32GB; successful) cards are Patriots so shouldn't be a manufacturer thing.

Tablet is now working good (still occasional minor screen flicker.... auto screen brightness indecisiveness in brighter light/daylight it seems) so planning to keep it right now. Good little unit for my needs (music and other diversions on train commute) at price point. Ann154 thanks for reply

I would return it and get a much better tablet.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

I use a 64 GB card in mine and it wouldn't work until I let the tablet "prepare" it.
