    Default Formatting and using Micro SD

    I installed a SanDisk 16GB Micro SD card - it is showing up in my settings - storage - under the External SD card - but did not ask me to format it - am i suppose to format and if so how???? I have very little extra apps installed and am almost to my max on internal storage - there is an update and says there is not enough room to update. Can i install games from the market on the SD card - and if so how do i do that??? i really don't understand this!

    SD cards are normally pre-formatted in FAT32 and that is the format the stock Android can read, hence no need for formatting.

    As for moving apps to the SD card, I have no experience on this so can't help.

    What is taking up so much space on your internal storage?
