Hey /wsr/ gotta simple request. I just bought a 8gb Sandisk SD card today, and something is wrong. Every time I try to download something I get this error message. My storage is pretty much empty because I just got the card. Any ideas?
It is almost full. Should I just delete stuff? My phone isn't allowing me to move much to my SD card.
108 MB should actually be plenty since the bulk should go to the SD. If it were completely full I'd understand. The only thing I can think of is that something is trying to force the install to the internal storage rather than the SD. Obviously you can try deleting stuff if possible (can't hurt) but that's probably not the main issue. At this point I hope someone with more knowledge of Android can chip in (I have Android, but not an external SD).
SD is second-class storage on Android. It's fine for pure data, such as movies and music, but putting apps onto it is challenging. As far as the OS knows, it could vanish at any second, so any data that absolutely has to remain readable (application code, plugins, UI data, etc.) has to be internal.
Some phones need to download the app to internal storage before they can unpack it onto the SD card.
Some phones don't even support apps on the SD card at all.
Delete more stuff, OP.
