    I thought this topic was already here but I can't find it. I just moved an album from internal storage to SD card because I was out of room on internal storage. But I can't find a way to get the phone to display the SD card gallery/albums and I need to see them now. Selecting Gallery" program shows only the internal storage gallery.

    The stock apps on any device are there to get you by until you find something better.

    Simple Mobile Tools is a great collection of utility apps for Android.

    In your case, I recommend Simple Gallery Pro and File Manager Pro.

    Also, you will want Simple Thank You, as that will correlate your color choices between all Simple Mobile Tools apps on the device.

    They are all available on the normal app stores, and Pro versions are paid apps.

    All of them are available for free on F-Droid.

    If you like these, then check out the other apps available from the same developer.

    Don't know how it was formatted. It was put into the phone months ago.

    I would copy and paste your card onto a PC and then re-format the card using the phone to format it. Transfer everything back to the card and see if that works.

    Somehow this thread got slightly messed up.
    Thanks pupykickr - I'll try it.
    Ocnbrze - I remember the card was formatted on the phone.

    I just found that I had the pictures backed up on my computer. While they're not portable I can look at them there for today.
