Hi many many thanks. I have had some success with drag and drop using my PC and music files also with my photos,this is freeing up a lot of space in the primary storage of tablet. Its a great pity that Samsung don't address this in there ops manual as I presumed you could do this directly on the tablet. Again many thanks for the time you spent. Any other tips on how to manage storage on the SD card will be appreciated. WRM.

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

Do you know if there will be an update in the future to be able to move apps to the SD card... Kind of limits the amount of apps you can have...KarenH♥

Hi Guys, I'm new to the forum and the tab owners group, have had androids for the past couple years. I reicently bought a Galaxy tab 2 8gig running ICS. My issue is that the apps2sd programs don't offer the move button for the individual apps, it shows they can be moved but the normal space for the button (like on my phones)is blank. I've tried more than one flavor or the app and the result is the same. Thanks for the response in advance

Apps to SD

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.

Before Honeycomb 3.2, apps only had to request for the permission WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE and they would have write access to both the internal and external so-called "sdcard" sets of memory.
Now, apps have to request for WRITE_MEDIA_STORAGE if they want to write to the external SD card, but many of them have not yet been updated to do so yet. This affects file managers / explorer / compression utility type apps most often because users would tend to use them to copy / move / zip files within the file system.

Hi, I just bought my 7+ the other day.

Regarding inability to move apps to the SD Card, do you think that this is done knowingly by Samsung in order to curtail side loading of pirated/bad apps?

Can apps placed in the SD card via the PC work with the tab? If not, then I think the reason above seems more logical. Therefore we cannot expect Samsung to correct this perceived shortcoming.

What do you think?

Thanks for this site.

Carlos

SD CARD STORAGE – YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

Here are some basic guidelines to help you get started.
(If anyone spots any helpful additions or mistakes please let me know and I will EDIT)


External SD Card - Honeycomb, ICS & Jellybean

About Moving Apps, or not as is the case :sad:

Apps will not currently transfer to the SD card using the standard software on the 7 plus

If you install a third-party file explorer, Perhaps it is Astro File Manager, or ES File EXplorer. You find that you can read files from your SD card but you always get an error when you try to do a write operation, whether it's copy or move in, delete, or create a new directory.

But it works fine if you use the default file explorer. (My Files)

Turns out Google had for some reason since Honeycomb 3.2 decided to split the write permissions for the internal memory (the path of which is confusingly named /mnt/sdcard) and external SD card memory (the path being /mnt/sdcard/extStorages/SdCard) into WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE and WRITE_MEDIA_STORAGE respectively.

Apps to SD

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.

Before Honeycomb 3.2, apps only had to request for the permission WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE and they would have write access to both the internal and external so-called "sdcard" sets of memory.
Now, apps have to request for WRITE_MEDIA_STORAGE if they want to write to the external SD card, but many of them have not yet been updated to do so yet. This affects file managers / explorer / compression utility type apps most often because users would tend to use them to copy / move / zip files within the file system.

Moving files from Internal memory to SD card
you can still write to a mounted SD card via your PC,
using a USB connection to copy files to the SD card or edit any SD-card-stored files

you just can't do it from the tablet itself.
That means in an Android file manager utility like ES File Explorer, you'll be able to browse through the SD card and access its files,
but if you try to copy files to the SD card or edit any SD-card-stored files, you'll find those options to be grayed out and unavailable.



---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Saving your DCIM Camera photos :–

In the camera app go to the COG symbol (settings) – scroll down to STORAGE – select – chose memory card. DONE

Photograph albums from your pc (using your tab as a mass storage device) :-

Plug you Tab into the USB port of your pc – your desktop will come up with the following options (windows XP):-

Open device to view files
Sync digital files
Take no action

Select the first option – you pc will then recognise your tablet and the SD card as two separate storage areas – Open SD card –
you can now Drag and drop or copy and paste your albums directly onto the card.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Music from windows media player libraries :- (assumes you have already ripped you music)
Connect you tab to the pc and open windows media player – your device will be recognised – in Sync set it to card.
Open your library – albums – drag and drop each album (or all albums in a list) to the sync area – sync. If you interrupt albums will only partly sync.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Be careful to always eject hardware before disconnecting your Tab.

Tab Connected to PC with Kies = No "Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media" Icon shows
(on the Tab, tap to goto HomeScreen, then disconnect Tab from PC)
Some 7 plus units default back to the home screen automatically

Tab shows on Windows 7 as "Portable Media Player" = No "Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media" Icon shows
(on the Tab, tap to goto HomeScreen, then disconnect Tab from PC)

Tab shows on Windows 7 as "Removable Disk (H:)" for internal memory = The "Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media" Icon shows
(on the PC click the Safely Remove Hardware, Eject Samsung Tab, then disconnect Tab from PC)

Tab shows on Windows 7 as "Removable Disk (I:)" for external memory = The "Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media" Icon shows
(on the PC click the Safely Remove Hardware, Eject Samsung Tab, then disconnect Tab from PC)

Hi tchang welcome to the forum.

I would suspect it to be true :sad:
The 7 plus has the same issue also. If you read in that section you will find a couple of pinned topics threads about moving things to SD cards.

that leads to another question. is there a way I can set up to install apps directly on SD card then?

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

I just got my Tab with ICS and have the same problem. I contacted Samsung support and they said that moving apps to SD card is not supported on the Tab. Wish i had known that beforehand....

It's a function of ICS - Apps can't run from external storage, and not all apps can read/write to the external storage.

What a pity you didn't find our site before you purchased, then you would have known that.
If you search in here you will find an alternative suggestion on how to get your Apps onto the SD card from Moderator Bart Laroc and others.

Lots of other things will store to SD, Music, photos, Movies, Videos.
