Question [Q] sdcard as sdcard1 in file explorer

How come the sd card shows up as sdcard1 under storage instead of just as the primary for sdcard folder in file explorer and why is it that when trying to save downloads from say next browser the external sd is not an accessible option?

External memory cards are NOT primary, the internal flash memory is primary. Android support for external memory is minimal, even games install to internal memory.

You'll have to manually move your files to the external card, that's what I normally do.

File explorer apps or a PC. With a computer it's easier to move files obviously.

However I wasn't referring to game files or apps, because those only check the internal card. If you have music or pics, docs, etc, those can be moved to external manually.

Well, once I readed that you can make the phone think that the location of your games folder is located on the mSD but I lost the info, if I'm not wrong, they used a console command, but I don't know the command he was using.

The thing is that this phone is like a small console, but games take a lot of space, and I use the internal storage of the phone for more important stuff like maps and documents and having such a big card it will be great if you could save games in external storage.

Well, any way thanks thanks again for the replay
