Afternoon all,

Before I begin - a quick "thank you" for those behind the forum. The resources on here were immensely useful in helping me to install Google Play on my son's Childpad. I have mentioned this in the relevant thread but I had issues with non-responsive screen and no wi-fi after installing updated firmware (sorry if that's the incorrect term), and eventually got it working with the "2G" update image file.

I now have another problem. The internal memory is full and I cannot for the life of me get games to install on the SD card. Images & movies install there without any problem.

I have read a tutorial on doing this using Android SDK but my computer is not recognising the device. It *will* recognise it in recovery mode as I installed the relevant drivers for doing the Google Play install. For reasons I cannot fathom, my PC is not allowing me to install the ordinary Childpad drivers... when I select the drivers (downloaded from this very forum) it says unable to complete install.

I'm using Windows XP .....

Thanks in advance :)

Have you tried installing Link2SD app? This app can move big portions of apps to external SD Card thus freeing your internal space storage. The best thing is it does all automatically you just need to set up SD Card right (manual how to do that is on Google Play page of that app)...

I've tried a load of "Apps2SD" card but achieved very little. One of them even installed a really annoying ad-tool that pops up every now and again on my homescreen. I *think* I managed to delete the files manually... so far 24 hours and no-pop ups.

 

BUT I'm willing to try anything :)

Unfortunately Link2SD only got so far as compiling a list of apps. I tried to move the first one in my list - 3D Bowling - and got the following error:

pkg: /data/app/com.threed.bowling-1.apk Failure [INSTALL_FAILED_INSUFFICIENT_STORAGE]

 

I tried the next app in the list, Bad Piggies and got basically the same error. 

 

In case it makes any difference, when I booted the app SuperSU popped up and asked me to grant some privileges and I agreed.

Any thoughts?

I can really see the appeal of Android and playing with this tablet makes me want to get a Nexus or similar... but I really do miss the simplicity that I get with iOS on my phone :(

Link2SD needs SU privileges so its OK that you gave app that privilege, it wouldnt work if otherwise :)

Yes you must create another partition on SD card (ext2 or FAT). Those errors u're getting, I assume, will be gone when u properly prepare SD Card, although I would suggest if possible to clean up ChildPad first and do app installations with Link2SD already installed and running so that app can manage data space distribution from the beginning...The best thing would be to "format" ChildPad, install Link2SD and then install every other apps :)

Hello Arnold,

As for your case, I suggest you use Android Transfer, a professional data transfer tool by RecoveryAndroid. Get one and install on PC, and scan your phone data by this program. You will get a preview of phone data in categories. Then choose the App category and install apps on SD card with one click. It's really safe, convenient as well as powerful and has won lost of appreciation from users. You will not regret for a try.

Better to buy a phone with large internal storage. The apps run much slow when installed on SD card. Plus, if you lost data on it, you can recover deleted photos on SD card. Please be noted.

  firstly, you should stop use your mobile phone for fare of data over written, then you can try Mobiledic Android Data Recovery to scan your SD and try to recover lost data from Android SD, maybe this is your final hope.

I have a safe approach is to recover deleted or lost data from android phone ,as far as i know, which is design for recover deleted messages,contacts,music,photos,videos,,,,and more from android phone,above all, the software promised to protect android phone from harm , this is one of the different between it and the common recovery software, you can have a look at this guide,
