    "go to settings, go to storage,. go to preferred install location, untick SD card"

    If someone could help, I apparently don't have the "preferred install location" option. I have a Note 1 and the option wasn't there with 4.0 or 4.1.2.

    I just got this message when trying to install an app with the phone connected to my laptop via USB cable. Connecting via USB cable locks out access to the SD card, so if the app tries to install on the SD card, it won't work!! Not the cause in this case, but can be the cause in other cases.

    I have the same issue on my phone. But to decrease audio is to go where ever the audio is stored hold your finger on it then something will pop up and say delete you click that and soon enough it deletes same with pictures just hold your finger on the album you want to delte and a check mark will pop up so u can delte that ablbum and others instead of doing it by hand

    I've a Nextbook 7P12. Don't buy one! No room. I cannot use an external SD card, & my games won't upgrade to my internal SD. What the h... (where) is the default install location? And, why can't I re-
    download my game? To get updates on some games, I have to unload a game, update other game, then reload the game I unloaded. VERY frustrating!!!

    I recently developed this app,
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ocationchanger
    you can use it to permanently set your external sdcard as default app install location.
    It works on rooted phones only

    You need to solve the problem by hard resetting the phone as it rewrites all the system partition which actually solves this problem.
    For samsung shut down your phone hold down volume up menu and power button simultaneously recovery mode would open then using volume up and down button select wipe data and press power button it would wipe all your data so please back up contacts and messages and only apps like whats app if required or dont backup apps at all.
    You would have the problem solved
    For other users press volume up and power button for recovery mode.

    I got recently this common problem. I m using one of those Chinese PadPhones ( N9776 MTK6577 Dual Core Android 4.1 3G Smart Phone) with JellyBean 4.1.1 but the problem is simple. at least for me was: First I Unmount the 32G SD card (watch out I said "Inmount SD card" not Erase SD card). in this phone I click Setup. look for Storage click. on SD card section to Unmount SD card do click wait for process finish.
    Second Update your application from Google Play.
    Many original Google applications are expecting to be set up in the original Cell Phone memory. This problem happens most the times when you are moving applications to your SD card becouse you think is more better or what ever. I have no found any way to move aplication from SD card to Phone storage

    Third mount back your SD card and do not move Google stuff to SD card

    I have similar phone. And thanks for the info Alvaro. Unfortunately for me I had to go all the way to step 6, remove google accounts. Here's what to do when Google Play isn't working - AndroidPIT
    I would also do the Google Play Services update first. For me also was Google Maps and Google Search updates

    Hello,

    I use an ageing (nearly 3 years old ...) Chinese Android phone which was supplied with no OTA facility and 'stuck' at Android 4.0.3 ... and frequently I have rec'vd the ... 'Cannot instal in XXXXXXX ' ... message.

    Thanks to the comment in ths forum area - I seem to have resolved this issue by a change in [B]Settings / Storage / Preferred Instal Location ...set to ...
    Let the system decide

    So far this has resolved the matter for me.
