    Leave them on the SD Card and use them from there.

    Have you tried using them from the card and they don't work? Or is there a reason you want them on the phone?



    They should work from the card.

    I can't seem to access them from the card. I go the data storage and see how much room I have available but can not seem to get any of the pictures or the music off the card to use. I need to figure out how to do it because my phone keeps telling me I need more space to clean somethings up. My card is to small to put in my computer and make folders. I would have to find an adapter for it. I would rather figure out how to utilize it from my phone so I know how to do it.

    My understanding is you can plug your phone into your computer with the USB cable that came with the phone (you probably have it plugged into the wall outlet part that also came with the phone) and the computer should recognize the phone card as a drive/storage device. If it is not recognized you will have to find the USB debugging setting and if it's on turn it off or if it's off turn it on (I don't remember which way it is supposed to be but if it's not working one way try it the other way). Then you should be able to set up the storage card as suggested.

    I believe you have 2 different issues here that you are jumbling into one.



    Your first problem is that you internal phone memory is full.



    -Uninstall apps that you are not using (we all have a few).

    -Delete the cache of your installed apps

    -Move apps to SD if they support it



    Your other problem is accessing media on your SD card



    -Follow the link in post #4 above and make sure you have the right media in the right folder
