thank you very much for your question. My name is***** and I will try to help you as quick possible.
Are you using your SD card as internal storage or adaptable storage within Marshmellow or don´t you see the SD card at all? Or can you see it but you can´t save on it? I am just want to make sure that I understand the exact problem you are having with your SD card, only then I can help you effectively.
Thanks for your patience and best regards,
thanks for letting me know, I know this problem just to well myself... With marshmallow, you have 2 ways to setup your micro SD card, please have a look at this tutorial and see if it solves the problem for you (it solved it for me when I switched over some months ago):
If it does not fix your problem the way you wanted, please just let me know and I will forward you to another expert (free of charge for you) that might have another solution for you on top of that one.
If I already was able to help you, I would very happy about a positive rating (select 3 to 5 stars at the right top and click "submit"), because only then I get paid by JustAnswer with a part of your already accomplished payment, which mediated your question to me as an independent expert.
Thank you very much and best regards,
thanks for your reply and I look forward to your message. Please just let me know:)
Thank you and best regards,
thanks for getting back and sorry to hear it wasn´t fixed. Please allow me some time and I will do some extra research for you. If I don´t find anything, I will open your question for other experts. Is that fine with you or are you in a hurry?
Thanks for letting me know, I have done some more research but came to no conclusion on why it would not ask for what you´d like to do when inserting the card. So if you want, I will open the question to other experts, maybe someone has another idea there. Just let me know.
Thank you very much for your patience and all the best to you,
Hi there Martin
First, if you open the My Files app, can you copy files to the SD card?
If not via this app, what exactly happens when you try?
ok, but if one file can copy then any can.
So specifically where is the issue?
ok, but when you say you cannot use the SD card, exactly how do you mean? As you can copy files to it.
ok, but you can never install direct to SD card, this is always the case. Only some apps can run from SD card and you first need to download them to the internal memory, then you go to Settings, Applications and there see if they can be moved. Apps for example with Widgets cannot. This has always been the case in all versions of Android.
It is possible they have been lost on the card.
First uninstall them from settings, apps.
Then make sure you free up enough space on the internal memory to download them before the move. Download an app and then try to move it please.
Yes, not all apps can be moved to SD, ones with widgets ect. If the developer did not allow for this it is not possible. This is nothing to do with the version of the firmware, it has always been the case with Android.
If the app can be moved to the SD card, the procedure I had is how you have to do this.
