    Books Shortcut On Home Screen Grayed Out - Books Still There

    I have two icons on my home screen that are grayed out. They are the "Books" icon and the "Photos" icons. The message says the
    SD card they are on is not accessible but I have never had a card plugged in. I just got the tablet. It also says I can download these again but I can not find them in the App Store - maybe because they came already installed? My books are still there but I can't get to them. Can anyone offer some advice. Thanks in advance.

    It's,seems a fairly common glitch�� , i just ignore it and next time i look, they have come back, if your not that laid back, try holding the power button down till the machine knocks off, that usually sorts most things

    In the mean time you can access them by going in to settings, manage apps, all apps, then, where is says" downloaded", sweep your finger across right to left, till you get to' ALL apps", and you can start them from there
