    The Android forum. Look at the top of your screen.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy SIII, which has a 32GB SD card in it, in addition to the main storage. As far as I know, there is no way to download any apps and put them on the SD card, without doing some hack that could possibly compromise the phone.

    I have not looked for anything that can "fix" the phone to do what you want.

    I haven't looked at putting anything but pictures on my SD card. Where do the audio files originate? I will give it a try tomorrow.

    No, I haven't had time to give it a shot. I will try to do so this week.

    Download and open Double twist on your tablet. Then swipe left to Settings. Click storage and change from internal memory to SD card.

    The easiest way is to take your SD card, out of your Galaxy S2, copy music files, from your computer, to a folder on the SD card, plug it back into your Galaxy S2, and use a music player, on your phone, to play the music off of your SD card.

    That is what my son does. He said that you can do it through the phone, but he had his computer lock up a few times, so he just transfers the SD card, to his computer to get the music.

    He also said that he has used an Amazon MP3 player and one from Google, but he says both are garbage. lol.

    I don't have an SD card reader on my desktop, but I do have a few different USB card readers that I use, and they work just fine with the SD card plugged into them and then plugged into a USB port.
