Acer Iconia Tab 8 A1-850-13FQ- Refurbished – Support Forum

Acer A1-850 [Acer Iconia Tab 8 A1-850-13FQ- Refurbished - 287883]

I bought a 32g SD card for this tablet but I don't see any way to move apps, docs, or anything onto it. How can I use this SD card in this tablet? I am running out of space and want to keep my stuff.

(It pays to proof read)

Are you on Android 4.4? Android 4.4 introduced a bunch of restrictions on SD card use, where you can't easily write to the micro SD. You can see details about the changes here. I'm not sure if you've installed all updates yet, it might be worth continuing to update and see if you can get it to Android 5, which has more liberal SD card permissions. Barring that, you might be best off moving large files such as photos/music to the SD card manually through your computer over USB.
