SOURCE: SD card capacity

Yes, the hardware is SDHC-compatible. You just need to apply Microsoft hotfix KB934428 for Windows XP (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=de&FamilyID=6edfb30f-b1ab-42a8-a330-acd6762961bc) and you are set. 16GB SDHC working like a charm.

We have a lenovo tab2 A8, with a 64 GB microSD card installed. With both netflix & amazon prime video, in options, there is no selection to download to the SD card instead of the internal storage.


First, go to Settings > Storage and check if the "Default write disk" is set to "SD card". Then go to Settings > Apps and swipe to the left until you get to "SD card". Below will be all the Apps that can be be moved to the external SD card. Click in the box on the right and another page will come up. About in the middle of the page will be "MOVE TO SD CARD" tab. Tap on it and wait until it finishes. Then go back and pick another App to move. You should be able to download apps directly to the external SD card. I haven't done that on this device and not all apps will download to the external SD card (the app maker can restrict downloads to only the internal memory. This tablet is one of the rare few Android devices that allow moving Apps to external memory.

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.

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 you move internal storage to the sd card to free up internal space


touch the "Settings" icon, go down to the "Device" area, touch the "Storage" icon : go to the bottom of the screen, and select "Transfer data to SD card", then select the items you want to move.

You should also move some apps from internal storage to the SD card : "Settings", "Device", and touch "Applications" : then touch each and every application : for most of them, the button "Move to SD card" will be active, just proceed.

How do I make the SD card the peimary storage on my tablet?


If you have a later version of the Android O/S such as version 4.4.2, look in:

Settings> Storage and you should see a category called

*Default write disk* Under this will be listed:

*Internal Storage* and *SD card*.

Touch the little radio button to the right of *SD* card and it will turn blue. Apps will still be saved to the Internal Storage but pictures, videos, music, etc will then be saved on the SD card.

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.

How to put photos on my sd card


This more than likely means your internal storage is low and not the SD card and may not have anything to do with your pictures but more so with your apps. Go into settings and see if your tablet has the feature to set where your downloads and other media is stored, by default that will be your internal memory. change it to SD card or USB storage. In Settings you can also click on your apps individually and transfer them manually one by one to the SD card or USB storage or download a file manager and do so all at once. Some apps and files may not have the feature to transfer these apps the tablet came with or apps you downloaded that uses the internal memory. By default if a memory card is in you tablet pictures are automatically store there, if this is not the case the easiest way to transfer is connecting the tablet to a computer/laptop and transfer to the card or again use a file manager.
