Guys help me with my problem, I have an sd card and i want it to direct the download files to sd card or set my sd card as my internal storage. But neither of these is working. My phone is oppo a83



How to turn the "External" SD card into "Internal" storage - Option A

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 tablet.

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


How to turn the "External" SD card into "Internal" storage - Option B

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 tablet, some things may not work correctly, so make sure you do the reboot.

 
Yep, that is how it is done. If it isn't working on your device, you either have the incorrect version of Android (to old) as you need at least Android "Marshmallow" (which is 6.0) or the manufacturer has restricted this option on the device. Which, sadly, is very common. So if the instructions of mine above don't work for your device. Then it cannot be done on that device. At least not to make it "Internal" so that you can run apps on the card. You can, however, still download other things to the card. Files, videos, music, photos, etc. Just not apps.
