You tried mounting the microSD with the proper Gapps, and copying it with CM's File Manager (to the internal disk to be picked up by CWM later)? Just being clear, and making sure you are not talking about trying to install a zip directly from the MicroSD with CWM (as mentioned, and ruled out before). Because these are two completely different things. Is the MicroSD readable at all on your device? Is it formatted properly (FAT32, or even Ext2/3/4, but not NTFS)?

Sure. Insert the microSD into your computer, and open up Windows Explorer. There will be a new drive that appears. Right click on that removable drive, and select Properties. Confirm the File System. If it is FAT32, you are okay. If it is NTFS, or exFAT, you will need to format (as the Infuse will not recognize these formats). Press Cancel.

Before beginning, make a backup of the MicroSD card, as we are going to wipe and start from scratch. Then, right click on the removable drive again (and only this drive, or you will cause damage to your computer) and select Format. Change the file system to FAT32. If this is not an option, find and download a disk utility that will (I'm not familiar with them, but google "removable storage format fat32 download" for one). Press start, and wait a few minutes. When done, you can reload your files on the drive (restore your backup), and try inserting it in your Infuse again.

Hope this helps.

Probably not, IIRC external SD did not work in CWM for the Infuse. But re-read post #10, what I'm suggesting is getting CWM to read the proper Gapps from the internal card, but placing it there with CyanogenMod's file manager.

CM 10.1 comes with a file manager right? Download the 4.2 Gapps onto your mcroSD card, insert it into your device. Fire up the file manager. Copy the Gapps file from the external SD card to the internal card, root folder (where the offending Gapps lies). Reboot into ClockworkMod and wipe Dalvik and install the appropriate zip.

Sorry, I misread your previous post. Thanks for the clarification. What are the details on the microSD card? Make, model, speed, capacity? If it is a 64+ GB card, it would spell problems as the Infuse was never rated for a capacity that large.

No reason why the microSD won't work in the Infuse.

If you have a Bluetooth keyboard you can borrow - or try buying (not sure if it will connect) - but if you can get your hands on one, you could use that (never had to use one so I don't know how they connect) to download the right GApps package to your phone (via the built-in browser).

I'm curious as well, if the speech-to-text works. You could use google now search to find the gapps package ("okay google, xda developers") and browse to the right page. Of course you will need a unsecured network to attempt.

Other than that, unfortunately I'm out of ideas.
