Root your phone and get an app called titanium backup or get a different browser like " root browser" or es file explorer and manually move each one.

SOURCE: Lg lp500 cookie mobile wont store automaticaly into memory card

Hi, with the Cookie you have to set your camera and video settings to external memory seperately, even though you have already made external memory your primary storage....its weird! I don't have the phone with me right now to check but open up the camera by clicking the button and while the icons are on the screen tap the one that looks like a cog, this takes you to the settings page for the camera, under one of the tabs here you will see two memory type options. Tap the 'external memory' option and away you go! You need to do the same with the video settings.

SOURCE: LG VX8350 can't transfer mp3's to removable storage any more

Make sure you format the card in the phone and not using an external card reader.

Also make sure you are not using a card that is beyond the capability of the phone. The phone is limited to 4GB cards.Use only cards that are 4GB and lower capacity.

If you still have problems I would try getting another brand of card, Kingston and Sandisk have worked well for me.

SOURCE: I dont know how to

First, I need to educate you - and then caution you - about what you are attempting to do.

Let me start off by telling you that you are correct: your phone has 230 mb for internal storage. However, when Motorola manufactured the i1, they installed a 600MHz Freescale ARM 11 Processor. This processor can handle up to a 32 GB capacity micro SD memory card. This is a large capacity card and there's a reason for it.

Specifically, the processor in your phone also requires a large portion of your internal memory to be free - so it can run / perform as fast as it can. With your internal memory full, your processor will slow WAY down, and will become susceptible to freeze-ups.

As such, your phone pretty much requires you to use a PC to transfer files both, to and from your memory card. This is actually to keep you from constantly getting a Low Memory message from your internal memory being full. And, with only 230 mb of memory (which isn't much) it wouldn't take long to fill it up - and slow the processor in your phone down - with photo's and music.

To be sure, in your phone's manual on page 36 it reads: "Your music is stored on your memory card. Your phone supports removable microSD memory cards up to 32 GB capacity."
This is Motorola's way of telling you to ONLY use your memory card to store music and not your phone's internal memory.

Moreover, on page 42 of your phone's manual it reads: "You can transfer your pictures, videos, music, ringtones, and more, from your computer to your phone's memory card." Again, Motorola point is to tell its i1 customers to use their memory card and not their internal memory for storage.

I'm telling you this for a reason. Working here at FixYa, I receive request every day for assistance when a person's phone freezes up. It is almost always because they were using their phones internal memory for storage and got it too full.

You really should use a computer to transfer files both, to and from your phone's memory card and keep as much of your phones internal memory as free as possible.

Here's a link to an online manual for your phone if you would like to review the pages I've talked about. And, I hope you follow my advise.

I downloaded google play store but it wont let me download any apps. Why does it keep saying insufficient storage space even with my sd card in? It shows my internal storage is full.


my LG phone did the same thing. My internal memory stayed at full capacity while my SD card was available with all of its space ready to use. the phone would not allow me to add anything to the SD card. every time i wanted to add an app, i had to delete an app i already had. an extremely frustrating and ridiculous issue which should never have even been an issue. if i had known i would not be able to use my SD card to store apps, pics, etc, i never would have purchased the phone. long story short, i googled the issue, tried many of the suggestions with no success. after much trial and error, i finally found the solution to my problem. i bought a new phone. it was not an LG. i was and am extremely disappointed with the USER UNFRIENDLINESS of this LG cell phone. shame on LG for not giving all the information to purchasers of their product. sorry it isn't better news.

Im having problems with storage, its a nokia lumia 530 and says 3.04GB used the phone system is saying its using 2.68GB I have minimal apps, photos and no music yet I am almost out even after a reset


First, tell the phone to store new files and apps on the SD card.
On the start screen, swipe left, and tap Storage Sense.
Tap SD card for each file type.

Next, move existing apps to the memory card
Tap phone -> apps+‎games -> bullet list icon
Select which apps to move.
Tap Move to SD.
You can later choose to move the most-used apps back to your phone from the memory card if running them from the card proves to be too slow.

How does ram vs internal storage work on tablet?


There are 2 storage in just about every smartphone or tablet. There is an internal storage, usually about 1gb. or 2gb. And there an internal SD storage, which is not same as the external micro sd card. RAM stands for Read Access Memory, it will not work as storage. Now, when you download an app it is usually save in the internal storage. If you move an app without an external micro sd card inserted, you are moving them to the internal SD storage. If possible got to setting>storage and check how is the storage divided, if you insert the external micro sd card it should display 3 separate bars. Also, another way to move apps and other things around is by using ES File Explorer. Check that out first and I hope you do resolve the problem, best of luck.

I have a 16g sd card in my phone and when i try to download an app it tell me there is not enough space on my device why wont it use my sd card


You need to setup your phone settings to use the SD card instead of phones internal memory. Should be under the settings menu, look in the apps section and storage to find what your looking for...Change the defaults to use the SD card and NOT the internal memory.

Hope that helps.

I have an irulu tablet. I inserted a 32gb sd card. It says it is mounted and when i try to install an app from the google play store i get the message there is insuficient space available. how do i get it...


Most apps do not natively install to an SD card when downloaded from the play store. You have to have an app like AppManager, that has a function to 'move' apps from internal storage to an SD card, or use a manual option in the Android Settings section to move each app individually.. If you are that tight on space that you cannot load any new app, you may have to delete or move something from your internal storage so you can download AppManager or some similar app, and then move as many apps as you can to your SD card. If you have a lot of photos and music you can try moving that to the SD card if your player/viewer software will allow you to find it there. Best way to move bulk items (music/photos, not apps) is to connect to a PC through USB, which brings up your internal storage and the SD card as external USB storage items. Then copy from internal storage to SD card through your PC. Best to establish folders on the SD card to hold these items and then tell your app where they are.

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.

Can't move things to sd card


One question. Were you able to move apps to the sd card before?
When you go to settings, storage, does it show the external sd card? I want to explain something first. The sd card is an expandable storage card, but it won't store your apps. If you want to check it out just insert the old memory card in a computer and look for any apps. Smartphones usually comes equip with 2 types of storage:
1. Internal phone memory: which could range from 500mb. to 2gb. of storage. This will be by default the location where the apps would be saved.
2. Internal SD Card: this is an expand storage that is already in the smartphone. Notice that when you see an ad for the phone it usually advertise whether it is 4, 8 or 16gb. That is the internal SD storage.
The third option is the external micro sd card, which is the one you are having problem with.
In storage under settings, see if you have an option to mount the sd card, maybe it's not mounted. You can also clon or copy everything from the old sd card to the new sd card using a computer, and then try it again.

Tablets have internal storage and external SD cards (optional) storage. Apps will download to the internal storage. So under Settings > Storage make sure you have space on your internal storage.
