Hi, I have Roku 2 with Micro SD in, can't recall if ever recognized or formatted, but still get apps loading with message to install an SD card...Any suggestions? New one, specific brand?

Rokus are very finicky in which microSD cards will work, so bigger may not be better and definitely isn't necessary.

You can see whether or not the microSD card is recognized from Settings->System->About.  You shouldn't be getting any reloading if you have a card installed.  If you think there's one in there, eject it and try to reinsert it.  It usually takes pushing it in with your fingernail to get it to click into place.

Hi, thanks for that. I have inserted the micro sd in completely. In system, about, the message i get next to MicroSD is "not installed". Do i just need to try a new MicroSD?

That would be a good idea.  You can also try to format the card in a computer (if you have a computer that accepts microSD cards) and then try it again in the Roku.

What size/type micro SD card did you purchase?
Did the Roku recognize right away and format?
Have Roku 2 4210X2 purchased 16GB UHS-1/Class 10 Micro SDHC card for unit.
Inserted card but nothing happens.  Go to System => About, says no card inserted.
Any information would be helpful. Thanks.

Insert the card with the power on and the Home Screen displayed on your TV.  Make sure the card is inserted fully.  You usually have to use your fingernail or something similar to get it to click into place.  If it's sticking out at all it's probably not inserted fully.
