    hello
    i have a problem with my sd card and the chrome browser.
    I have a Samsung S7 with android 8.0 and the download location chrome's in the sd card looks like : SD Card/storage/32B4-BCBA/Android/data/com.android.chrome/files/Download.

    The pictures that are there downloaded, are not in Gallery shown, the music is not in Music play shown etc..

    I formated my sd card, a deleted all the data chrome's and nothing works.

    Has anyone an idea ?

    Thanks

    Welcome to Android Central! Using your file manager, look in that directory. If you see a file called .nomedia, delete that, and see if the images and music now show up in their respective apps.

    Thank you.

    I deleted that file and was another one in another folder that i deleted too. Now when i donwload from chrome, pictures, music they show.

    But now how can i change the download location, chrome not to download anymore in sd card/storage etc.. and simply in sd card/download ?

    Thank you

    Go to Settings>Apps, select Chrome, then Permissions, and make sure Storage permission is turned on.

    The storage permission is already turned on and in chrome i can change just between internal storage/downloads and sd card/storage/32B4-BCBA/Android/data/com.android.chrome/files/Download...

    I just tried it on a device that has an SD card -- I see the same thing. It looks like you can't specify which directory on the SD.
