If you use Android 2.2 or above,
You can use apps like Link2sd,S2E,....
You need to create a separate partition in your memory card and use it to move apps there(It will act like internal memory).

SOURCE: help with memory card inkrazr cellphone

Do not use card reader and format with pc, you only format the card with the phone,and only once.

If you format the card with your pc the phone migt not see the card anymore,even if you format fat32. The card is suppose to be formatted with phone because the phone needs to build folders in the card.

As for saving anything,say pic,just open options and choose card.

How do I move apps, pics, etc to SD card? Internal storage is full


For Android users, get the app Android Assistant and run it, use the Tools tab and choose the tool named "APP2SD" and choose an app from the list. When the app description appears, click on the STORAGE button and then click on CHANGE and click on SD to move the app from "Internal" to "SD card". Wait for the app to finish being moved, then back out to the list of apps that can still be moved to the SD card and do the next app. Be aware that when apps get updated, they will move back to the internal memory, so I usually check with APP2SD about once a week and move things as needed to my SD card. For space on my SD card, I chose a 128GB micro SD card and I've only filled it about 1/4th of the way over the past year. This is the safest way to move things because Android Assistant will only list the apps that can be safely moved to the SD card. Some built-in phone apps must stay on the phone's internal memory to keep working, and those cannot be moved and won't be shown by the APP2SD tool.
The Android Assistant also has a "Cache Clear" option on the Monitor tab that helps free up internal memory on your phone when you run it (cache clear). The app (Android Assistant) may tell you it needs access to stuff so it can clear the cache. Do what it says to give it access, then go back and tell it to clear cache and it will free up some more internal memory. Cache items will be refilled as and when each app gets used, so if memory runs short again, you might need to do this "as-needed".
I paid the cheap price for Android Assistant Pro so I wouldn't accidentally click on advertisements that pay for the free version. It find the app very helpful.
TIP: You can also set MANY apps to PUT their things directly to the SD card instead of internal memory! Yay! I did this with my camera app and it REALLY helps by having photos and videos sent directly to the SD card so I don't have to keep moving them around.

Hasn't saved anything to the memory card because his tablet won't allow him to .. It keeps saying not enough space it's a 8GB memory card


The internal memory cards of some Android devices are partitioned for app storage and installation. Some of them have partitions that are quite small such as one Gigabyte or smaller. The remainder of the storage cannot be used for apps.

If it keeps saying not enough memory space then chances are the app partition is full. The only way to free up some space is to uninstall some apps that are stored there but not being used. You can see which apps can be uninstalled in Settings > Apps and look at them one by one to see if an uninstall option is listed. Simply click *uninstall* to remove them from the app storage partition. This will free up some extra space for some new apps or for updates to older apps you still like and use.

Also some of the apps might show an option to move them to an external SD card (if your device has a slot for one and if an SD card in inserted therein). Do move any and all to the external SD card of you have that option as that will also free up that space from the internal SD card.

Says memory full put a new sd card in says thats full too cant move anything to sd card


If you look carefully, what usually occurs is that it is the internal memory that is getting full. It is very hard to fill an SD card unless you have a LOT of pictures and videos saved. Some apps are written to allow them to be moved to and run from the SD card, others allow their data to be stored there, but unfortunately, most still seem to insist that they run exclusively on internal memory. This prohibits the ability to free up internal memory and eventually results in your having to decide which apps are more important than others. Cleaning up the memory by deleting data caches helps, but until the phone manufacturers either increase internal memory or insist that apps writers take advantage of SD cards when available, this problem will continue to haunt us all.

Why Does my Phone Stop Downloading Aps or Updates and Saying Not Enough Space on my Phone despite having 14GB Free on the SD Card?


Downloads and such are not going to SD card. They can be moved to SD card later. You should move some stuff to SD card to free up memory.

Unless your version of Android allows you to move around app, you need a rooted phone. Then you need a special program, to make it possible to install an app in your external memory. Or at least to install an app that is on your external memory (SD card) into your main memory. Be aware if your phone has a small internal memory (8 or 16 Gbyte) it can be filled up very soon. Not only with the apps, but also with data, like mails and docs (pictures and so on) you have to have in your internal memory, so the phone can access them.
As soon as your internal memory is close to full you can't install anything. SO make sure a few Gb is free before you try to install anything.

I have an android LG phone kit kat version, i have files on my sd card and even internal storage that when i click on then to open it says can not find a app that can open file


Please read this site. Just to make clear what you can do with internal memory, SD cards and so on in any Android device.
Be aware the SD card is only an external device to keep your files close to the device. You can't open them and you can't run any app from it.
To open files in the internal memory, toy need to have enough free internal memory to let the app that wants to open the file can run, and some extra space. If the memory is full you need to clear memory, by moving apps or data to the SD card.

Texts not working on samsung galaxy y , storage data says full , even though it has been emptied,m no texts are coming in, also the option for moving apps to sd card is greyed out


Your phone can't use the mini SD card as internal memory. Your internal memory has to many apps, and to much data. (pictures, notes and messages) You should clear up the internal memory, by deleting apps and data. Most Samsung apps you can't delete. The modern phones already have apps, exceeding 10 Gb. So if you bought a 16 Gb phone only 5 Gb is left for you to use for apps. I'm sorry, but the SD cards should be seen as an external hard disk, not as internal memory.
If you thought I can buy a phone with less memory, because the SD cards are very cheap and will extend the internal memory, you made an error. New phones from Samsung now get more than 10 Gbyte of apps, you even can't remove. So only about 5 Gbyte is free to use for other apps and messages.
Next phone, take one with lots of internal memory, if you like to install other apps.

My straight talk phone H866C says low internal memory. Do I need to up grade my sd card?


An internal memory is different than your sd card. You can try moving some apps that you have saved on your phones internal memory to the sd card or just leave it as is and start saving new apps/contacts to the sd card rather than the internal memory. You may need to delete some programs from the internal memory to free up room, but you can always redownload and save it to the sd card instead.
