    you have to restart your phone, then sd card option will come.
    Every time you add a new game, you have to restart.

    Even I have the same issue, I copied around 20apps after I had reset my phone. Some of the apps showed up in store > SD card while most didnt. I tried restarting the phone but of no help.

    internet should be on all time during this process.
    Remove sd card from your phone, then restart your phone, then go to store app to check if sd card option is gone or not. If sd card option is not available then, insert your sd card then again restart your phone. Then go to store app and install apps from sd card you like.
    This method should resolve your problem.

    This happens a lot when apps are either: lower version than store version, removed from store, hidden from store and similar issues. I've got 2 apps here that give me the same stuff. Do note that you have to wait up to 20 minutes for the phone to understand there's an SDcard with apps and that they should be in the root of the SDcard.

    I just downloaded 2apps now that are compatible with 512MB devices and copied it to my sd card root. One of them showed up, the other didnt.

    The SD card option shows up after you reboot the phone, no need to wait.
    The apps need not be copied to the root folder, it can be there anywhere inside the memory card.

    i sometimes follow this method to sove this problem, you can try this check out app in sd card option, if app is not showing, press back and again go to sd card option.

    i have to do this 3-4 times to get app in sd card option but this problem occurs occasionally and yes, it is not necessary to put app in root folder but it is recommended, so that your phone finds app more efficiently and faster.

    sometimes, update takes a week to appear in store app. Usually, it takes 2-3 days, when update comes.

    If the app which you have downloaded is of lower version then the store version then you cant see it in sdcard option.
    and open sdcard option 2-3 times then you will see the app.

    I don't think there is something like that. I had an app copied to my sd card, it was later removed from the store, but it was still showing in store >sd card.

    Some apps shows up, some doesn't.

    If you don't have latest version of an app in your SD Card, it won't be shown.
