    It's a Trio Stealth G4. 4gb internal memory, which is unused because the tablet has labeled it an external sdcard. Also have a 32gb sd card. Any help is appreciated.

I have hipstreet pulse tablet how do I get y apps to go onto my micro sdcard


You don't. Most apps will not load onto an SD card. This is because that many SD cards are not fast enough to support the app's needs, and also the app writers don't go to the trouble of writing apps to be loaded on SD since not every tablet has one. SD cards are primarily for the use of storage of photos, music, and videos. A few apps CAN, if designated, store some data and cache info on the SD, but your issue should be with the tablet makers for not putting enough memory in the tablet itself in the first place. This is how they save money.

How do I download apps onto this device?


The default on most tablets is to install apps to internal storage so the SD card does no good by itself. You can go into Settings>Applications and change the location for each app to the SD card. Likewise anything else you put on a tablet, particularly photos and videos get stored in internal storage. If you have taken a lot of photos and videos they can fill up your storage quickly. You can change this in the Camera app by tapping the settings icon and changing the storage option to SD card. You will still need to actually move existing photos and videos to the SD card manually or copy them to external storage and delete them. I would also change the image and video resolution in Camera settings to 640x480. This is plenty good enough for pictures you just want to look at on the device or share online.

How do i download apps straight to sd card?


By default they're downloaded to SD card. What's the problem? Just move them afterwards to ExtSD if you want.
Another way (if you have your device rooted and familiar with Unix commands) is to change system start-up parameters to mount ExtSD as a /sdcard/download from terminal application.

How do I use my SD card for internal storage?


There are a quite a few options.



  1. Open Terminal Emulator and check with the 'df' command, how much space is left on your partitions. Is /data or /system full?


  2. Goto system/apps/all > 'Sort by size to' find out which apps eat

    up the most space.


  3. Check if you have big size apps installed where you could change data location within the app to sdcard. Thinking of navigation apps and games. Every app where you have to download additional data to the actual app.


  4. Make sure you use the sdcard for media like photos (camera settings) music and video.


  5. CM has a built-in system to move apps to SD under settings/apps/on sdcard. Check apps that are big and you use rarely and are not interactive first. Reason: If you still use the USB feature those moved apps are not available to system anymore and are least likely to cause trouble.


  6. Another option is to use the app Foldermount. Use it to move certain locations to SD like the Download folder. Or the DCIM folder if the camera doesn't support sdcard location in settings.



  7. Use the app Link2SD which is able to move every bit from an app (including app data) to SD. It has a good overview on how much space an app really needs. You will have to create a separate partition on the SD card for that to work.

Download and install a utility app that cleans the tablet's internal storage. You can also move your music/video/pictures/audiobooks/ebooks, even some apps from the tablet's internal storage to the SD card.

I am trying to get a video off of my Archos device and onto my computer to burn it onto a CD how do I get it off?


Download ES File Explorer from the app store, link your Google Drive and upload your video. You can now download using any computer by downloading from your Google Drive account. Your video may be in a directory called /sdcard/video/ or /sdcard/media/.
