I have 32gb internal storage on my Sony XA1 (Plus). At the time of purchase a salesman told me i could expand the internal 32gb storage to 64gb by integrating an SD card and formatting it as one. (I also know you can do this on other phones).

However, now that i have put in my SD card in, when i go into settings and internal storage, it wont allow me to integrate the new 32gb SD card so that i could format it as internal storage and make it into one.

Does anyone know how to do this ?

It should ask you if you want to format the card as adoptable storage when you insert it, but honestly, I wouldn't bother. Adoptable storage has a number of drawbacks, including early corruption of the SD card that results in data loss. SD cards are best for stand alone files (I.e. Documents and media), not app use that has near constant writing to the card.

I think we don't have such options.

Adoptable capacity has various downsides, including early defilement of the SD card that outcomes in information misfortune.
