Android to use removable memory, how's it done?
 
Good day Linux users, how can I get my Samsung Galaxy running Android 4.0.3 to normally use the removable memory?

normally use memory? What does that mean? The SD card? That's storage, not memory. If so, apps like the camera can be told to put files on card rather than internally easily enough.

Yes the micro sd card, as the in built memory only has 8 gigabytes.

While there is nothing wrong with asking that question here I would think that you may get better help on LQ's sister-forum: http://www.androidquestions.org/

right, so as above, apps tend to implement it themselves. also apps2sd can help.

In both cases, for permanent-storage purposes, the spaces are presented as "RAM disks."

yes you will surely need micro SD card for this thing as that will give you enough memory to work for

I have installed a 32 gigabyte card, and it has 29 gigabytes of video and documents on it now. Just trying to get the right video player.

Try the VLC alpha or beta versions,... either Play Store for the beta or direct download from the VLC project website. Note; there are several versions depending on what chipset you have and whether it supports Neon or not,...

Oh,... and a rooted Android device can be configured to look for the sd card in a number of places (i.e.; set mount points for internal or external storage devices),... It's not for the timid to go messing around with that though...
