saving to SD card on flex 8

My flex 8 does not recognize SD cards. No icon pops up when one is mounted, there is no way to save to it. I'm at a loss. I have tried 3 different cards and no luck. Power on and off. Nothing. In the storage it says its there but I cant do jack spit with it. Any one else with this problem? Or did I just get a broken gift.

Hello mamareashel,
Please make sure the SD cards do not exceed 32GB and that they have been formatted in Ext FAT or FAT32. Then go to Settings->storage and make sure the SD card is mounted. Then go to the application you want to use with the SD card and change the default storage location to use the Sd

Hello Red_Rider,

Welcome to Community@ Insignia™!

What kind of files are you trying to move?  Certain files have to be on the internal memory.  Most apps have to be on the internal memory.

Re: saving to SD card on flex 8

I'm having a similar problem.  I have a 16gb Samsung micro SD card in my insignia flex elite. I was hoping to be able to save downloaded pictures, video, documents and maybe apps to this but cannot figure out how to do so.  I'm not very tech savvy but I'm a little surprised how difficult this is. I expected there to be something like when you install a USB in a computer and can then save things to that drive or move things to it.  Am I missing something?

Hello Jer21,

Welcome to Community@ Insignia™!

If you go into the apps, you can select the file manager. In this app you can select files and move them over to the SD card. Not all files are moveable though, some are created in apps and are required to stay in those apps. You should be able to move pictures and documents easily though.
