    Moving Apps to SD Card

    Just got off the phone with Coby, and it appears that you cannot move apps to the external SD card. While the app shows items to be on the card, using USB connect and direct read of the card in a card reader never shows them on the external media. I even switched media (8GB for a 32GB card) and the apps ran and showed as being on the smaller sd card. Coby confirms that these apps probably don't work on our devices (have a 7127, returned a 7022...both same problem). It seems that the external media are only good for things that we download or preload like music, videos, etc.

    Anyone else have any thoughts?

    I have tried everything I can think of and have come to the same conclusion.

    On most tablets, the folder "/sdcard" is mapped to a partition in the internal microSD. You can use normal app2sd to move apps to this partition. If you want to use the actual external SD card, then you need something like link2SD. There is a thread about configuring it on a 7022 that may help.

    You're kidding. I'm using App 2d or whatever that thing is to move stuff to the "sd card". Are you saying that's not really happening? Is that why I'm always low on storage? That's kind of ridiculous.

    This is how it works with Kyros tablets (all models I know). The /sdcard folder is actually a partition of the internal microSD. If you really want to use the external microSD (/extsd on Kyros MIDx024) then you need do some hacking...

    You can probably use the same method that is stickied in the technical sub forum for link2sd 7022. You can probably even use the same vold.fstab that I have posted in there to get it to work. Definitely make a backup before you try it. If it works let us know so others with the same tablets will know.

    "Move to sd" card option will free up space on the data partition. They are indeed moved so make sure to move all apps that allow you to

    Well, but from what I've read on here, even though it surely seems like you are moving the files, you aren't actually moving them to the sd card, which is a huge bummer.

    Interesting. So, when it says the tablet storage is expandable to 32 Gb, what does that really mean?
