Re: How to save all of my stuff on my SD card and how do i know which storage is the sd card?
Ok, so this is a bit puzzling, and I wonder if you could post a screenshot when of when it asks you to choose. Phone Storage and Internal Storage are usually one and the same. Phones will break their memory down in one of 2 different ways:
1. Older phones usually have 3 possible memory partitions: (a) Application Storage, which is anywhere from around 512 MB to 3 GB. This is where apps are installed, and where some app data is stored as well. You shouldn't be able to store anything yourself in Application Storage. (b) Internal Storage aka Phone Storage aka Internal SD, which is the main part of your phone's advertised memory that you can use to store data or media files. Apps can store data here as well. If your phone was advertised as having 16 GB of memory, the usable Internal Storage is typically only around 8 GB after accounting for the OS, bloatware, and Application Storage. (c) External SD card, which is obviously the SD card that you insert into the phone. Unless you root your phone, the external SD card is mostly useful for storing lots of media files. Some (but not all) apps can also store data on the external SD.
2. Newer phones have so-called unified storage, where there is no breakdown for Application Storage and Internal Storage. When you look at the Storage menu, you should just see two graphs of storage: Internal Storage and External SD card.
Now, in your case, we need to make sure that your device is recognizing your external SD card. Go to Settings/Storage, and make sure there is a separate storage graph for the external SD, apart from the Internal Storage. If you see it, then it should be available.
Next, we need to know what situation brought up the options of storing in Phone Storage, Internal Storage, or let system decide. As I mentioned above, this shouldn't happen, because Phone Storage and Internal Storage should be the same thing. So try to post a screenshot of when those options come up, and also post a screenshot of your Settings/Storage menu.
