I had a similar problem with my SD Card also. The problem is with Samsung the permissions on the SD Card have been set in such a way that you can only write to the SD Card using the bundle apps like "My Files" that came with the OS but any other third party apps wont be able to write since they lack the appropriate permissions. Use the bundles "My Files" app and you should be ok. There is no easy way to fix this without Samsung helping out or rooting the Tab yourself.

Hope this helps.

Simple solution for external sdcard write access on Android 3.2...if you're rooted

I've found a simple solution for gaining write access to the external sdcard (/mnt/sdcard2) on Android 3.2. The sdcard is mounted r/w, but the owning group is media_rw which is linked to the WRITE_MEDIA_STORAGE permission. Unfortunately, this permission was not required for access to the external sdcard prior to 3.2 so most file management utilities do not request it when they run...meaning they only have read access to the card.

The simple solution, if you're rooted, is as follows:
1. Using a root-enabled file manager, navigate to /system/etc/permissions and make sure you have mounted the file system r/w.
2. Edit platform.xml and find the WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission.
3. Add an additional group definition for this permission...<group gid="media_rw" />
4. Save the changes to the file.
5. Restart your tablet.

After this change, any apps that request the WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission (which includes almost anything that access either of the sdcards) will gain group membership in both sdcard_rw AND media_rw, giving them r/w access to both sdcard filesystems.

I'm just the proud owner of a Samsung Galaxy GT-P6800 7.7" Tab, unfortunately I cannot move Apps to the SD card, there is no facility in App Management and I've installed Android Assistant and that won't do it, the SD card is superfluous to requirments on this Tab if it cannot be done......any suggestions would be most welcome

Hi
In my GT-P6210 I have the same reported problem.
Can't move app's to SDCard and on Manage applications don't have that option.
I install App2SD and in MOVABLE tab option I have 4 applications that can be moved
but ON SD CARD tab option I get this warning:
"The device does not have a real primary external storage, or the primary external storage is emulated.
Moving app to SD function may not be supported by this device."

This is a firmware problem or device malfunction?

Thanks

Hi thanks for the reply.
If I understood... or in other words, all app's for this device need a extra security code inside.
