Default How to Import certificates

After placing two PFX certificates on my SD card, I go to
Settings > More > Security > (under Credential storage) Install from device storage,
but I get the error "No certificate file found on the SD card", but the files on the card root. Do I have to put them on some special folder? A new one? How is that? Do they have to be of a different sort and not PFX. On the same menu, under Trusted credentials, there are over one hundred OS installed certificates.

Can someone help on how to import certificates, please?


[I found a handful of similar threads on this matter, but strangely enough, they have no replies. The last one is only from less than four days ago on an LG forum. I wonder why.]

Sorry, in all the years of using android, I not once needed to install a certificates. Can't help you, except for suggestion on perhaps trying 3rd party app like android Certificate Installer.

I followed all the links, read them, installed two certificate installers from the Play Store, but it seems that they install only other kind of certificates and not those I mentioned on my post — PFX. The same one that other people are looking for.

What is the extension of the certificate files?

.cer?

If so then you will need to convert them so android can read them using a .crt file extension.
