    Default Move Pics from Phone to SD Card-Pls Help

    Please help. I bought and installed my wife's sd card after she had activated her phone. I am now looking for a way to transfer her pics which are currently stored on the internal memory of the phone to the sd card. I have searched several sources and I can't seem to find an easy way to do it from the phone. Any ideas or help will be appreciated.

    Just use a file manager. Find them on the internal storage and copy and paste the pics to the ext_sd card. Then go back and delete them. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but that's how I'd do it. There should be an option to have them sent there by default

    Yeah I just use file manager. Somehow my pictures go to my sd card automatically.

    Just use an app like astro and copy or move the pics. Or you can always hook it up to the computer and drag and drop. Pretty simple methods.

    I had the same question about moving files to my newly purchased 32gb SD card. Thanks for this information. ES File Explorer does not recognize SD card, but native file manager does.

    One more question ...how do I set the SD card as default storage for downloads ?

    Thanks

    1. Es file explorer does recognize the sd card. See screen shot.

    2. Most apps only save to phone storage and cannot be changed. Camera can be changed in the settings though. Others have to be moved for the most part.

    Go to camera. Click on the cog wheel at the top of the screen on the left. Go all the way to the bottom of the menu. Second from the bottom you'll see storage. Click on it and select where you want your pics to go. Hope this helps.

    Hi Team,

    I have defaulted my camera to store photo and videos in SD Card. Any videos taken more than minute is not playing back in my phone, it gives me an error message. i can play all videos less than 1 minutes, if i change the options to phone memory (Default) and take any videos greater than 10 minutes. it plays my video without any error.

    my Sd card is 32 GB of class 10.

    Please help me to solve this issue.

    Hermine,
    If you have an SDCard installed, this is what the stock Camera app settings should look likeMove Pics from Phone to SD Card-Pls Help-uploadfromtaptalk1370705236289.jpgIf you're not seeing the option to select the memory card, check the Storage options and let us know if it's actually showing that you have an SDCard installedMove Pics from Phone to SD Card-Pls Help-uploadfromtaptalk1370705488684.jpgSent from my rooted, debloated, deodexed Sinclair ZX-80 running CM -0.001 using Tapatalk 2

    Ok so I did what you said and it worked but just for new pictures. I tried saving the pictures that were already on the phone to the sd card and no option came up to do that... so frustrating. I got a new phone and my mom is using my old phone and I just really want my pics. Help!

    Henry,
    There are multiple ways to move pictures:
    1. Use the Gallery app to move them
    2. Use the My Files app to move them
    In both cases you basically navigate to where the pictures are, select them, choose the Move option and then navigate to where you want to put them and choose the Paste option.

    You could also use your PC to move them if you want to connect the phone via USB. Whichever is easiest.

    If you need step-by-step instructions let me know and I'll post some screenshots showing the basics.

    Amber61413,
    I'll give you some examples using the "My Files" app.
    1. When you first open the app this is the view that you see. Select the "All files" item.Move Pics from Phone to SD Card-Pls Help-uploadfromtaptalk1377987216230.jpg2. That takes you to this screen. Select the "sdcard0" item (that's the name for the internal memory on the phone).Move Pics from Phone to SD Card-Pls Help-uploadfromtaptalk1377987498386.jpg3. Now navigate to "DCIM/Camera" - that's where your pictures are stored by default (in the screenshot there are no files there because I set the Camera app to save them to the SDCard by default).Move Pics from Phone to SD Card-Pls Help-uploadfromtaptalk1377987698343.jpg4. Press the Menu button and choose "Select all" - you'll see checkmarks next to all of the files.
    5. Now press the box with the three lines in the upper-right corner, then choose "Move"Move Pics from Phone to SD Card-Pls Help-uploadfromtaptalk1377988174416.jpg6. It takes you to this screen again - this time select 'extSdCard' (this is the name of the actual SDCard).Move Pics from Phone to SD Card-Pls Help-uploadfromtaptalk1377988398841.jpg7. Navigate to the folder where you want to move the pictures. You can use the '+ Create folder' button to create a new folder if you like. Then press the 'Move here' button.Note that if you want to keep confusion to a minimum, you should first set your Camera app to save any new pictures that you take to the SDCard. If you do that, the Camera app will create a folder at "/extSdCard/DCIM/Camera", and you can just move all of the pictures into that folder.

    Another way is to move the entire DCIM folder to the ext card. Then set the camera to save pictures and videos to that folder.

    My storage is so full that it will not even let me access my pictures on my phone and I have a Mac and at the store they told me to plug my phone into my computer and I can copy and paste from phone to card that way but I cannot see where to actually do that....

    If you copy and paste to be sure it is moved, don't forget to delete from the phone. Once you have it down....cut and paste so there is not a copy left behind.
