Default SD Card Problem

Hi there, today I tried to play Need for speed game, but I got warning message it needs 2 Gb memory free.
I have 8 Gb SD card in slot.
In preferences (storage) of box (refee M6 smart tv box) I have only 2 Gb SD card. (it is internal I suppose).

Why is internal (2Gb) card instead of external (8Gb)

Weird thing is that my 8 Gb card is mounted on sdcard/external_sdcard folder.

How can I fix this?

Android 4.0.4.

Thank you.

Thank you.
If your box is rooted, edit /system/etc/vold.fstab file and switch internal/external sdcard. When you open vold.fstab you'll see what I mean.

It is rooted, do I have to transfer data from sdcard to sdcard/external_sdcard
before I do that?

No, just switch mountpoints for sdcard and flash (or media, don't know how it's written in your vold.fs), so internal sdcard will be in sdcard/external_sdcard and real sdcard will be in /sdcard.

Not to be confused, mountpoint is probably not /sdcard but /mnt/sdcard or /storage/sdcard0, /sdcard is only symlink to real mountpoint.

Oh, It is easy, thank you.
I edit it with ordinary text editor.
But when I try to save file it say :"file is not writable".

How can I get privileges to edit this file... box is rooted, I check it with "root checker".?

Download es file explorer from market, menu, options, root explorer, enable it and mount system as rw and check 'Up to root' option. After that you'll be able to edit system files.

You have to root it first Or before installing firmware package, edit vold.fstab in update.zip and resign it.
