Re: transfer data from phone sorage to memory card

To move apps to the memory card

  1. From your Home screen, tap .
  2. Find and tap Settings > Apps.
  3. Select the app that you want to move, then tap MOVE TO SD CARD.

To transfer media files to the memory card

  1. Make sure you have a memory card inserted in your device.
  2. From your Home screen, tap .
  3. Find and tap Settings > Storage > Transfer data to SD card.
  4. Mark the file types that you want to transfer to the memory card.
  5. Tap Transfer.

These options are both greyed out so bot accessible. We know the card is installed and empty sine it is recognised by the phone

Hi scarsbrook,

perhaps the card needs formatting:

    1. From your Home screen, tap .
    2. Find and tap Settings > Storage > Erase SD card.
    3. To confirm, tap Erase SD card > Erase everything.

All content on the memory card gets erased when you format it.

Re: transfer data from phone sorage to memory card

Alex may be right.

I remember having a memory card formatted on a PC that wasn't recognised by Android and had to be reformatted in situ.

However, reading Google it seems there are often problems moving over apps to SD on this model.

What version of Android is it running.
