I just purchased a new 8GB micro SD card for my Optimus L9, the intention was to allow me to move my current apps from my internal storage to the SD card, and download new apps to the SD card. I have tried the strategy of clicking on an apps setting and clicking the button that should be halfway down the page that allows me to move it from the internal storage to the SD card, but the button, for any of my apps, does not appear. It's not like its there and I cant click it, its really not even there.
I've just updated my S4 (GTi9505) to version 4.3, and now all the apps which are on my SD card are grey squares rather than their own icons! How can I sort this out and keep them on the SD card? I've tried moving them to the phone storage and the pics come back, but as soon as i move them back to sd card they're gone again!
I rooted my kyocera hydro edge on boost mobile (4.1.2 jellybean) with framaroot 1.6.1 following the instructions and everything went fine. SuperSu updated after installation. I am trying to move applications to the sd card. I downloaded FolderMount (and a number of other apps that claim to move apps2SD but don't work) and FolderMount only sees what is on the SD Card, not internal storage. How can I move apps to my SD Card?
I'm using a Gemini Devices Gem1031BK 16GB tablet running Android 4.1.1 and Nova Launcher. I have 2 main problems.
Problem 1, if I move my photos to the SD card I can no longer view them on the tablet. It is as though they no longer exist, but the tablet will run Apps stored on card.
Problem 2. I keep getting "App Not Installed" messages although the icon is still present on the desktop. This happens with various apps, Candy Crush Saga, BBC iPlayer, BBC Media Player etc. The only thing I can do then is reload the app from the Play Store.
I've recently bought LG Optimus P936 true hd lte and it comes with Gingerbread 2.3.6 and it seems it can't be updated via "software update". This phone seems to have quite strong hardware so I wanted to upgrade Android to newer version. Is there any way I can do this?
My mom has a LG Optimus L9 p769. I'm trying to boot the phone into recovery mode by holding down the + volume button, the home button, and the power button. The phone will not boot into recovery mode. The phone works perfectly fine, I just can't get into recovery mode.
I'm on Virgin Mobile, LB Optimus F3 4G LTE (it wasn't an option in the forums, so I came here instead). Not sure if this is an Android feature or an LG feature.
Anyway, this thing called "Quiet Mode" will randomly turn itself on at nighttime or in the middle of the day with no warning and silence all sounds and block calls from all contacts. This is obviously frustrating. I'm not bumping it in my pocket or anything -- you can't even turn this mode on without unlocking the screen and scrolling all the way over in my top pull-down bar. For instance, it's been sitting on the chair next to me for the last two hours and I just checked it and it's been in Quiet Mode for who knows how long.
I can add contacts to the allowed calls list, but I still won't hear the ring, and I can only add a limited number of contacts. Also, all the writing within this mode is really poor English, which is odd. Example: "Please mind that incoming calls with exactly the same numbers with below list will only be allowed." Anyway, it can be scheduled for certain times and I'm going to try scheduling it for just one minute from 4:00 - 4:01 AM every night and see if that satiate its compulsion to be in control.
Any ways I can keep it from doing this otherwise? It doesn't appear to be an app that I can fiddle with.
By default, internal memory call is "sdcard" and sdcard will call "ex-sdcard" , so, apps will install on "sdcard". it make internal memory get low when i install some apps with big data.Now, my sdcard is free to 3,5Gb but i can't install any app because "sdcard" is full
I have a new softwinerkf026 (also known as 9" Capacitive Allwinner A13) tablet* running Android 4.1.1 and the 32 Gbt Sandisk micro sd will not mount. (SanDisk 32GB Ultra Android Micro SD (SDHC) Class 10 UHS-1 30MB/s) I tried reformatting the mico sd on my computer with FAT 32 default settings and rebooting the tablet but it still can't be recognized or mounted. I also tried another older 1Gbt sandisk, tried reformatting the mico sd and rebooting the tablet but still not recognized. Under settings / Storage there are two places where it says internal storage/mount SD card but selecting either one pressing long or short does not appear to do anything. There is nothing there that says external SD. I have tried reformatting the 32Gbt card and 1Gbt card with FAT 32 default file allocation, exFat32 and also NTSF but still no recognition. Now its back to FAT32 default file allocation size.
I am wondering if this is a setting problem, a hardware problem or an android software or bios problem. Is there any way I can test if the micro sd can be detected by the bios?
I had to have a factory reset done on my phone.. ALL my pictures are on an SD card and now quite a few have disappeared!!! What the heck??? There's pics on there from December earlier but anything from this year are gone! How does this happen if they were on an SD card?!
I have a Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE and a 16GB SD card. Mr. Hildebrand's excellent editorial makes me think--as my only association with the word "rooting" is "avocado pit"--I am one of those who ought not to try rooting my phone.However there are two things I want to do. How to do them without rooting.
(1) I want to store one large app--The Simpsons Tapped Out--on my SD card. I tried installing an app I thought would allow me to move the game app--
App 2 SD--but it only produced a list of apps that CAN be moved to my SD card: "TSTO" is on this list. I found in forums instructions purportedly for my phone, telling me I could move an app to the SD card by choosing the "move" button in Applications Manager. I have no such button. (I have Android version 4.1.2) So: is there any way for me to move an app to my SD card without rooting my phone?
(2) I also read online that I can take a screenshot with my phone by pressing the power button and the down-volume button at the same time. This turns down my volume and then turns off my phone. No screen shot. Is there a way to take a screenshot with this phone without rooting?
I am willing to risk rooting if there is no other way. The game in question is the only one in my phone, the only one I play--and every time a game update comes in, now, I get a message saying the phone hasn't memory enough to load it. This is why I installed the (still blank) SD card.
I own a GIONEE P2 mobile phone with MTK6572 processor and android 4.2.2. I successfully rooted the phone and it was working fine until my internet stopped one morning and upon restarting the phone, it wrote SIM1: SIM card not detected, SIM2: sim card not detected. I have tried all I could yet no avail as I can't use SIM card in the phone. I used MTK droid tool but nothing could be done, also entering engineering mode with ##4636##, the radio remained permanently turned off and couldn't turn on. I used IMEI tools to rewrite and replace the NVRAM files yet nothing happened. it has been very frustrating trying to find a solution but none found. WIFI and bluetooth still work fine.
I have been facing this issue from two days, whenever ii try to connect my android device via USB to PC...memory card is not detected and when i disconnect it and try to access card on phone i am unable to do that.
And when i restart my device everything is fine, and when connect it everything goes same as mentioned above.

Using galaxy grand problem is any app I download is going phone memory now my phone memory no space I want to transfer all app to my sd card I 16 gb sd card how to transfer my phone memory app to sd card
So the recent update for Google Now introduced the new feature that gives you cards when a "website" updates, much like RSS. Trouble is, I can't find where to activate this, change settings, or specify what websites to watch etc, I can only find news reports of such a feature. Or is this only for 4.4 KK?
I'm using Android 4.2.1 on Galaxy note 10.1. I am travelling and photographing and have 64 folders and 6gbs of pics on a 64*gb*sd card. The last two attempts to transfer images from my camera via USB have all failed with various weirdness, like seeing the pics in folder with Gallery app once, only to have the folder completely disappear on next viewing. I have lost over 800 photos like this and I can' t find anything about a folder limit in android but see lots of similar posts with sd card problems. All fine up until I hit that limit, now my whole image recording process while traveling appears to be unreliable. Is it possible the pics are there but not viewable somehow?
I have an Android D2-912 pad which I use mostly for reading. All my books are stored in the internal storage of the tablet ( 1.2 GB) which is almost full. For this reason , I needed additional space and bought a 16 GB class 10 Lexar Micro Card .The card works pretty well from my PC. The problem is that when the external SD card is in the slot of the D2, neither the internal storage content of the D2 pad nor the SD card show in My Computer, only the empty D2 icon, ,so that I cannot transfer the files. Onjly if I remove the SD card from the slot, then the full internal storage contents of the D2 pops up again, which doesn't work because for the file transfer I need both. .The mounted SD card and its contents, though, show nicely in the Settings/Storage tab of my D2, but even so I cannot do any file transfer .This inability to see the SD card also affects my attempts to expand the RAM with the Roehsoft Swap Ram expander, It works well, except that it does not see the SD card and takes the space for the virtual expansion from the internal storage, which is practically full, so that the expansion is minimal. .
From everything I've read I should be able to encrypt my sd card on my i747 but only option I have is to encrypt phone which I've done. Should I be able to encrypt my sd card on this? I have my camera set to save my photos etc on my sd card and would really like it encrypted. I've tried a few of the photo hide programs and they all move the photos to the internal sd card if you hide them from external sd card. If there was an app that would keep them on they drive they are located on I would worry about the sd card encryption as much.
I just recently got an optimus G e970. I downloaded CM10.2.zip and gapps.zip for the rom.I used "adb push CM10.2.zip /sdcard/" to move the files files to my sdcard and i sucessfully installed cyanagenmod BUT i can't delete the .zip files left behind.
When i go to recovery mode, i see the files in my sdcard but there are not options to remove it. I connected the phone to my PC and i can't see CM10.2.zip and gapps.zip file in my sdcard. I tried installign root explorer and esfile explorer and enabled hidden files but i can't find this file in my sdcard (internal storage) or sdcard1 (physical sdcard). However, i can still see them in recovery mode, BUT again there is not option to remove the .zip files in recovery mode.!
