Memory Card Wahala by peacefulhome(f): 6:45pm On Aug 24, 2019
Please my people what can I do with in my reach to make the memory card I bought (16G) to work well on my phone ( F1)?
It shows on setting that there is a memory card , but I do not have options to switch from internal storage to memory card. Pls what the way forward?
Note; I have never used any memory card on this very phone in the past. I had to test run two different sizes of memory card ( 4G, and 8G) yet still having same issue.

Which phone brand is F1
You can change it in settings - storage
If you can't do that, locate the main apps that use memory in your phone like camera,default browser,xender. Change their default storage to memory card from their settings

try to format the memory card first, then try to move some files to it using the files Go app.
When you locate the files or folder,hold the app(not tap) to bring out options, select copy or move, locate the memory card and paste it there. You'll do this using the files go app.
If it doesn't work, let us know

Go to camera - settings you'll see the option to use the memory card
Go to your browser- settings you'll see the option to change your downloads storage to sd card
Go to xender- settings to change default storage to sd card
Check other apps that uses your phone storage and change the settings

Have followed instructions still having same issue. There is no room to even change from internal storage . Second pic was when I went to camera settings.

Re: Memory Card Wahala by peacefulhome(f): 8:58pm On Aug 26, 2019
Should I click on this ; formate as internal? This was an option that I had after I had first formated the SD.

Your best bet is to take it to carlcare with the receipt or take it to a professional technician. It's not an ad card problem since you've tried different cards.

This is where we are now. But! Once I click on the SD it start moving my application straight. Is that the final solution?

Re: Memory Card Wahala by peacefulhome(f): 10:14pm On Aug 26, 2019
Will let you know once I have solve the problem. Because as it is now, I can only move files to SD but any pic or scree shot that I take goes directly to internal storage instead of SD( back ground check by me).
I appreciate your effort my brother God bless you and may you find help when you need one.

Just leave your main apps in the phone storage. Go to settings-storage and change default storage to memory card

Hi. There isn't much wrong with your phone. There are two things you must consider:
1. Not all apps and their data can be moved to an SD card.
2. That memory card you are using is too slow to be used as a shared internal storage device. Try getting at least a class 10 micro SD card, most memory cards are usually of the slower class 4 variety. There are reputable sellers like just2endowed2, jboixxx, and optimized who can help you in procuring a class 10 micro SD card.

Also consider downloading another file manager app like Files (from Google), or Explorer. With these apps you can hunt for large files and folders, which you can then move to the memory card.

It is not advisable to use your MC as adaptive storage.
1) You lost your files should there be any ish
2) Unannounced device restart/crash
3) you won't be able to remove the card cuz your system files would have been written on it, any removal will lead to system crash.

At the instant of installing the memory card, you should be prompted either to use the memory card as default storage or otherwise, you can select it as default storage, however, some devices don't work like that despite selecting the MC as default write location. That's by default not that the device is faulty.

Only available option is to move your user files manually to your MC.

Lastly, when buying memory card(s), demand for C10 memory cards!

All the best.

Pls are you talking about this as the C 10 memory card? I was given this brand when the first brand did not work on my phone. But the interesting thing is , the guy is now using the SD card on his own phone.

All I knew was that, I click on Google back up files bla bla( hope I got it Sha) and there after I went to my file folder and surprisly I was able to now move my doc to SD. This was achieve with an old SD card that I had even forgotten I had . When I saw that I could now move my doc, I insert the new 16G to do same. But guess what it display?

Unable to move file ; unidentified error. Wetin they pain me pass be say, the guy that told it kept insisting that it original SD that he sold to me. So shey na my spirit they attack am?

In all, you guys are the best . Thanks for every input now I can just respect myself and accept using the old SD (8G) .


One more thing. Pls how I can protect some vital information on my phone. I noticed I could no longer password this files ever since I move them from phone storage.
