    Hi Izabel Maritz, I want to help you with your question, just answer each of the following to the best of your knowledge and follow the solutions.

    1 Smartphone or not.
    2 Removable media inserted? (Micro SD card)
    3 Does the Removable media device show unused space?

    First and most importantly if you know a Micro SD card is installed with sufficient space to save your downloads then your phone settings are set to save downloads to 'local storage' and has filled to it's max. Often you can fix this easiest by removing the card for a few seconds and re-inserting it whilst the phone not 'locked'. Most phones will prompt you asking if saves should now be made to the SD card or to leave it at 'local storage'

    If you answer yes to each of the above numbered questions, it is likely the browser you are using is set to download to the incorrect destination. Try Solution A below. If answers no to questions 2 or 3 of the above question skip to Solution B.

    (Solution A)
    To check this open your browser and look for the settings menu. From here it will depend on the browser you are using, but you want to look for an option related to the following.
    'download location'
    'file destination'
    'save to external media'
    If you have no success or need help finding the setting for your browser please provide me with browser name. If it is the cell phone provider browser that comes default on the phone then I will need the make and model of the phone.

    (Solution B)
    If no Micro SD card is installed to your phone I would recommend buying one they are inexpensive and provide a large amount of space for things on your phone. The average phone whether it is smartphone or not does not have much 'local storage'
    Other solutions for B,
    1 Freeing space in your local storage. This means deleting things saved to the phone itself. Music, Pictures, Ringtones, Video's, Applications could be filling the phones local storage.
    2 Freeing space on your 'external media' device. This means deleting things from your 'Micro SD card' (Note. If you plug a phone smart or not into a PC or laptop usb port you may move things rather than delete them. I can assist further with that as well.

Most cell phones do not have large internal memories. You can, in some models, add and SD card to provide additional storage. However, some apps and some data storage cannot be moved to the SD card. You will need to go into your menu and start clearing our the larger data caches that accumulate on many apps. Remove apps you no longer need to free up additional space. And if you have an SD card, see if you can move apps to the card to free space. If the option is available it is highlighted for selection.

I installed a 64GB sd card in my Digiland DL700 tablet, and it now says I have over 62.GB remaining space. However I tried downloading something, and it tells me I have insufficient space.


Dear Rebecca,
64G is not recommended for use in any Device unless it is a Brand Name. Beside if anything goes wrong, you will loose all your data. Keep backing in it onto a portable drive if possible.
As far as your tablet you need to change the settings so that your downloads are stored on the SD card.Please refer to the documentation that came with your tablet or call the customer Support or online at the manufacturer website. Here is a reference manual. Hope it will help,
Good Luck,
JP

Nobis tablet has 5 gig space left, when trying to download new apps, message pops us saying there is insufficient space on device


you will need to reduce space, delete unwanted files items and create space for new apps, alternately see if you have a microsd card (external storage) which is not full.

Insufficient space on device


You will need to remove some items to make enough space. You can try some of the following to make some additional space:

  • Delete any apps you no longer use.
  • Transfer photos to a computer and the delete them from your phone.
  • Remove any videos you may have already watched.
  • Save any photos you want to keep from messages and then remove the text messages.

That should help free up some space and allow you to install the app.

Hope that helps!

Insufficient storage space is message I get when I try to install an ap on my eStar Android 4.2.2 tablet. How to fix this problem ?


You will need to remove apps, pictures, videos that are not wanted any more to free up space on the device. The device storage is full and you must make room for new apps.

Insufficient space


Try this: go to the tablet's settings and first clear the cache. Then, still in settings, attempt to move whatever you can from the device to the card.

My lg rumor2 says"insufficient memory cannot download web site.


Normally the cause of this is the memory being too full. Try deleting some texts, call log entries, address book entries, emails (if applicable), or anything else you can think of to clear some space.

Insufficient HDD space to play a game on a brand new ps3


This is a common problem (bug) with this game. Basically you have to delete something, anything, off your harddrive. If you have nothing on then download a demo or something then delete it. This should fool yr ps3 into releasing the space you need to play r&c.
