Hey, all. So, I'm having a senior moment (hour) and I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

I inserted the card properly and the phone says the card is mounted.

But I cannot see/find where it indicates the card is. I can use a file manager to see my files, but when I select "copy", the only choices I get to copy are on the same internal storage. Just copying duplicate files into additional folders I created.

How can I copy the files onto the card, instead of on the internal storage???

Please help! Thank you for reading.

Are you using the sd card as portable or internal storage ?
I think this link might be of help to you -

I use mine as Internal storage .
That is a really good feature, especially if you don't collect a lot of media files.

I'm using ES File Explorer which seems more understandable than Total Commander. But I really want the two directories open to view, as in Total Commander. This is the most confusing way I have found to date, as to how to use the card.

And ES File Explorer took a wrong turn somewhere but it has succumbed to uselessness even worse than Tapatalk.

I use File Manager by ZenUI Asus .It is simple and has a lot of features.You can try it out. Solid Explorer gives two panels side by side.
I do have quite a few photos but I back them up so it's fine for me till now.
