I have a Tab A8 (SX200) 2022 release. It only has 32gb storage but can accommodate up to 1tb SD card. I bought a SAMSUNG 128gb SD card, installed it, formatted it. It shows when I bring up storage, internal, swipe left SD storage. So, it is formatted and installed properly. However, when I download any games from Google Play or take photos it doesn't allow me to store them on the SD card. It also doesn't allow me to "move to SD" anything, the option isn't there.
I have seen in other posts that it is an Android problem, I have an Android phone and other Android tablets and have no problems whatsoever with setting up the SD card as extra storage.
What am I doing wrong?
I haven't received an answer yet, but I have been doing some playing around. Found out a couple things on my own. Not sure if they are pertinent but is what is happening on my tablet.
First off I read in a different comment that the preloaded apps that come with the tablet cannot be switched to the SD card.
Second I have a Motorola phone with 256gb storage so it doesn't have/need an option for an SD card. I do have apps on it that I transferred to my tablet when I bought it. It seems those apps also can not be transferred to the SD card. However any NEW apps that I download can be transferred to the SD card.
I just went through ALL my apps and went one by one and transferred what I could to the SD card. Go to settings, go to apps, pick which ever app you want to transfer , when that opens you have to scroll down to usage, then storage. If you are able to transfer that app it will say Storage used and under it says Change". If you don't have that it's an app you can't move to SD
I hope that helps you some.
Thank you for your insight - I appreciate it!
