    If I go into the Moto camera app, press "settings", and scroll to "storage location", it says "phone". I would like to change this to "micro SD card", but the text is lighter than the rest of the text and when I press on it, nothing happens. The SD card is fully inserted into the phone and has plenty of storage left on it. Why does this happen? Thanks

    Welcome to the forums. How did you set the SD card, as internal/adoptable or as external/portable storage?

    When I go into settings and press "SanDisk SD card", then press the three dots at the top right, one option says "format as portable". I assume that means that it is currently formatted as internal.

    It seems that way. Once you format the card as internal/adoptable it can't be used in any other device and the phone doesn't recognise it as a differentiated storage location, all is internal.
