Default MK809III Advice

Hi There.

I bought this off eBay and received it today.

Firstly I got it up and running with no problems at all. Plugged it in and away I went. Play store works fine. Happy Happy Happy!

Until I tried to install XBMC from their website. I clicked on the android version and 'no SD card' Flashed up. So i searched for the myfiles app and it wasn't there. But there is an explorer app. I opened that and can't access the internal memory at all?? In the eBay listing it says it should have 8GB of internal memory but when I look in the settings it says there is only 0.98GB free??

I've tried to connect the Android stick to my PC but it doesn't even recognise that I have connected it.

Is there something I am doing wrong???

Thank you in advance for any help on unlocking this otherwise great little thing.
