    Hi

    On Jelly Bean (unless its the latest version where the function is limited anyway) you can't install apps to the removable sd card, only to internal storage.

    Confusingly, the internal storage is a folder called sdcard on many phones. The removable memorycard is called extsdcard.

    It is likely that your internal storage is full and your phone is (correctly) saying sdcard full. You need to delete something or move data ie pics, videos, documents, music files to the removable memorycard. Many apps have a setting within the app to set default storage to the removable memory.
