Transferring apps over to your SD card should be a breeze. You might want to try restarting your phone, and then if that doesn't work, updating the firmware of your phone.

You could also try using a different SD card and see if it's maybe related to the card and some compatibility issue.

Alternatively, you can try a third-party app like this one to transfer your files.

Is there any way to move your photos and videos onto your SD card?

I have quite a few videos that I don't want to delete just yet, and I wanted to ask if there is a way that I can move them to my SD card.

Install or use a file manager such as Astro File Manager or X-plore. Launch the file manager of your choice and tap on something like "\", "phone memory", or "root". You will be in the root directory of the memory of your phone. Tap and hold the "DCIM", "Photo", "ANDRO", "Pictures", "Video", "Movies", "Films", etc., folders that contain photographs and video clips. Select "Cut" or "Move" (do not copy files, as you do not need the copy left in the internal memory). Now, expand your "/sdcard/" and use "Paste", "Move", or "Insert" to move the entire folders to your microSD card, clearing up some space in the internal memory.

I have a 3G tablet, the problem is when downloading app it tells me I have insufficient storage even though I have a 16GB SD card that has next to nothing on it.

I have the following apps: Cloud, Discover, Google Play Service, Google Play Store, Hangouts, Kingsoft office, Maps, My Vodacom, TalkBack, Vlive and Vodafone Time. I have no games, Pictures, music. I don't know what to do because the SD card is just sitting there.

Thank you

The problem is that you need to move programs to the SD card, set the Camera shots default location to the SD card, and remove unwanted software.

I have moved videos and pictures to my SD card, but it still appears in my phone memory as if it has copied it rather than move it. I then delete it from my phone and it disappears from my SD card too?
