    I have made my SD card as internal card. Rebooted several times still camera is asking to insert SD card

    IMO, that is NOT a smart move.
    the extSDcard should always remain a separate entity period.

    if something happens to that phone, all of the data on the SD card is lost... all of it.

    Keep the extSDcard as "External Memory", not appended to the phone's internal memory....

    Put the SD card back to external, then go into the camera and to Settings, Location, and then set that to extSDcard.

    that should resolve your problems.

    That's a suggestion, a good one though but still doesn't answer the problem after all there phones which don't have external SD card slot, Nexus etc
  4. Welcome to Android Forums.

    What device and what version of the Android system are you using?

    But your Android One phone does have an SD doesn't it? Otherwise you probably wouldn't be asking about it. And FWIW I would never buy a phone that doesn't have an SD.

    Sure your SD card is actually OK, and not a fake or duff?

    Since phone itself has only 4GB space most of it taken by OS and bloatwares I have converted external card into internal card (Marshmallow allows this). It is working fine except Camera asking to insert SD card.

    Sounds like a problem between the camera app and whatever you've done to the storage partitioning. How to solve it, have no idea, suppose you could try a different camera app, see if that works. It could be that the camera app isn't compatible with this feature of Marshmallow, and needs updating.

    That sounds exactly what the problem is i.e. the stock camera app is hard-coded to use an external microSD card and hasn't been updated to be compatible with the new Android 6.x features/APIs.
