    My moto g 3 has just been updated to Marshmallow and seems to be working fine except for one problem!
    Using File Manager App my Samsung SD card is named, '683C-1AFC' I seem to remember it being named 'sdcard1'
    Going into Settings, under, Storage & USB, it is named, '40w per cha'
    Can anyone explain this? and can it be renamed? It seems to have two names?
    Preferably without formatting.

    This suggests that the card has been formatted as internal storage, introduced in Android 6.x.

    Try selecting the card from the Storage & USB page, and then open the menu in the top-right corner of the resulting "contents list" page. On my MM handset the first option there is "Rename".

    Thanks for your reply.
    The option you suggest is not on my menu? I can change the 'view' or in settings I can format as internal, format, move media or eject.
    Seems I might be stuck with it. Strange that it has a different name Storage & USB and my file manager App.
    Might have to contact Motorola.
