    Android 7 inch tab (Asus 173X) with 4.2.2. Was checking memory/storage amounts. In Settings - Storage - the first section is labelled "Default Write Disk". I had two choices with radio buttons labelled "Internal Memory" and "SD Card". My finger got too close to the SD Card Button and I mistakenly selected it without fully realizing it. I left the Storage screen. But then I realized my mistake and navigated back to Default Write Disk. The problem now is I no longer have the Internal Memory selection nor it's radio button available. It is completely missing! And only "SD Card" is showing selected!

    I really do not want "SD Card" as the default write disk but I now cannot change it back. Everything I search for talks about setting the default from Internal TO the SD Card. I restarted, but the single setting remained.

    Please tell me - What do I do to restore the "Internal Memory" setting on that screen?

    Thanks.

    Answer comes from another forum:

    Try a Safe Mode boot. Forget it. No help.
    But...

    • Power down

    • Pop out SD

    • Power up

    • Say prayer

    • Android shows the desktop

    • Settings // Storage

    • There's the Internal Memory restored to its correct position

    • While still powered on, pop IN the SD

    • Another prayer

    • "Preparing SD Card..."

    • Poof - it shows now as the second selection

    • Done


    Bonus: Tablet now runs smoothly just like it was.
