    Adding 16 GB Micro SD Card ... Where Does It Show Storage ... And.....

    Sorry about a lot of questions from a total newbie with the Android system!

    I just added a 16 GB Micro SD card to my Samsung Galaxy SII. I was told this was a good thing to do for someone who has lots of app's and photos.

    I did that and the phone recognized the card ... etc . Good.

    Now, when I go to the applications>settings>storage ... I really confused at to "what is what".
    This phone has an 8GB internal storage capability and with adding the 16 GB card, one would think that it should show SOMEWHERE what/where the internal vs. the added card are.
    All I can see is a garbled mix of different storage availability : under "storage" I read:

    Internal storage ...
    Total space 1.97 GB
    Apps 107 MB
    Available 1.80 GB
    USB storage
    Total space 11.26 GB
    Apps 10.75 MB
    Pictures, videos 50.53 MB
    Audio (music, ringtones...) 32.00 KB
    Mics. 391 MB
    Available 10.81 GB

    SD Card
    Total space 14.62 GB
    Available 14.62 GB

    I can see that the "SD card" shows close to 16 GB ... some of it being used for whatever reason.
    But I cannot figure out what the Internal storage and USB storage represent.

    Also: can an application be launched directly from the SD card (added)? and if so, how can you make sure that the downloaded app will go directly to the SD Card?
    Lastly: I know how to connect the phone via USB and the computer will recognize it as an external storage unit/device ... whatever, but can you drag and drop between folders "as usual" and not cause any sort of problems doing so?
    Such as: drag and drop a given app from the phone to the SD card or vice versa, or photos in the same manner?

    From an oldie with not much tecnical knowledge.

    Cheers!
