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: my phone doesn't recognise my sd card

An 8GB micro SD card will actually be a micro SDHC card. Older SD devices care incompatible at the basic hardware level with the SDHC specification: they can only use standard SD variants. In theory that means a micro SD up to 4GB but in practice I've found very few pre-SDHC devices which will reliably handle more than 2GB SD cards without a firmware update.

I hope that this answers your question and ask in return only that you take a moment to rate my answer.

If it hasn't, then please add a comment with the exact make and model of the older phone and also of the 8GB micro-SD card and I'll investigate further before posting a reply for you.

SOURCE: Moto V6 Maxx micro SD card is not recognised

What happens when you put someone else's micro sd card in your phone? Does your phone recognize the other micro sd?

If it doesn't recognize that one, then it is your phone that has the problem and you should contact the manufacturer or the store you purchased it at as it needs service.

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.

My sd card shows but can't put anythig on it


Not many phones take an SD Card. The storage capacity of a phone is normally internal storage.

If it is indeed an SD card for your phone, you need to format it first.. That will be in settings, or you do it on a card reader on a computer.

I put an SD card in to get more storage and I don't know if it is acknowledging the card because when I want to download it still tells me that I don't have sufficient storage.


Unfortunately, the SD card in most tablets and cell phones doesn't get used efficiently. Most apps will not load onto the SD cards since the developers don't write the programs to run from them. Thus, you are limited to what's in the tablet or phone natively. The only thing the SD card does mostly is to allow you to store more pictures and video files. Some apps will put their data there, but you must direct them to do so in the app management menu. Until manufacturers put more memory in the devices or programmers write the apps for the SD card, that's the way things will remain.

Having trouble with memory card for Samsung Note 2


the first thing i would try? move the apps back into phone memory out of the sd card.maybe put the wifi back on phone memory,shut the phone off,remove the battery,put it back in & restart phone.it may take a minute or two for the sd card to mount.
then to "my files" (under apps on home screen ).choose external memory.pick wifi,tap the top right button. you will see options.pick "move".pick "device storage".that should put it back on the device.turn wifi on & see if it works. (P.S-always before removing sd card,pick "storage" on your menu. you will see the option to
"unmount".be sure to do this every time before removing 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.

My deleted file is in the sd card.. can the phone memory or whatever storage it has in the phone can recognize the files in the phone memory? -- is the phone memory or any storage of phone can read and...


Usually the SD card is a secondary storage device ... and separate from the (internal) phone memory. To determine / test this, see if your phone still have (some) information when you remove the SD card from the phone... e.g. your telephone contact list, etc.
Yes, you can try to recover the "deleted" file on the SD card using a PC / laptop ... using a data recovery utility/tool (on your PC) to scan the storage space or "undelete" that deleted file..

If your phone can be attached to a PC (e.g. via USB), and if your PC recognizes the "storage" disk on your phone as an "external" disk, you may also be able to use a data recovery utility to scan the storage space or "undelete" that deleted file.

I have a htc touch phone and i put all my pics on the storage card, and than one day all pics where gone and nowi cant even save my pics to the storage card.. and now there is storage card , and storage...


Why this happens:
If for any reason your phone cannot find the SD card on boot it will create a folder on your Phone's Memory called 'Storage Card' to put the Temp Files, Pictures, Music, etc into. Now as soon as the SD card becomes available, since there is already a folder called 'Storage Card', it is forced to name the "Real" SD Card 'Storage Card 2'.
Solution: Delete the "Storage Card" folder and soft reset. If the phone finds the "Real" SD Card, it will be named 'Storage Card' again. If for some reason it is not found, you might have a corrupt SD Card that needs to be reformatted. This would of course loose all the information on the card, so hopefully this is not the case. Warning: If you have pictures or other files in the 'Storage Card' directory, you will want to move them to 'Storage Card 2' before deleting 'Storage Card'. Use the 'File Explorer' found in your 'Programs' to do this. Good luck!
