When I put my SD card into my phone and my phone is LG Vista 2 how do I see if my SD card is working and where do I go to find my SD card settings
 
When you put it in the phone should ask you about the card. If you want to mount it, etc. The settings, although there are only a few, for the card are in "Settings" and then "Storage".

However, if you are trying to make the card your main storage, or main download location, then it depends on what for. If you are talking for files (not apps) then the app you are downloading with/through is where you need to set that up. If you are wanting to download apps to the card, then you will need to 1. be running at least Android "Marshmallow", 2. follow the instructions below and 3. have a phone the manufacturer hasn't restricted this option on. It happens.


How to turn the "External" SD card into "Internal" storage on "Marshmallow".

NOTE: Please be sure you start with a blank SD card. It needs to be blank because when the card is converted to "Internal" storage, it will be formatted (wiped) and encoded (making the cards data only readable by that device).

1. Go to device “Settings”, then select “Storage”.
2. Select your "SD Card", then tap the “three-dot menu“ (top-right), now select “Settings” from in there.
3. Now select “Format as internal”, and then “Erase & Format”.
4. Your SD Card will now be formatted as internal storage.
5. Reboot your phone.

NOTE: If you don't reboot the phone, many things may not work correctly, so make sure you do.


How to turn the "External" SD card into "Internal" storage on "Nougat".

IMPORTANT NOTE: Be sure you start with a blank SD card. When the card is converted to "Internal" storage, it will be formatted (wiped) and encoded (making the cards data only readable by that device), so anything on it prior would be gone.

1. Go to "Settings", and then select "Storage & USB".
2. At the bottom of the list you should see the SD card's details, including the option to format it and make it "Internal" storage.
3. Once this is done, reboot the device and you can start running things from the card.

If you don't reboot the phone, some things may not work correctly, so make sure you do the reboot.
