    #1. I'm trying to download the new Halo game, but it keeps telling me I don't have enough memory. The game is 1 GB, I have 2.15 GB free
    #2. When I check to see what is taking up all that memory, there is 9.41 GB in the "other" category. What is that? What can I clear out to get some space?
    #3. I put a 512 MB SD card in my phone, but it doesn't even recognize that it is in there. What can I do about that?

    Sorry you're having that problem. I'm not sure I can help with the SD Card problem. Maybe someone else can.

    As far as the "Other" storage issue. This is a problem that some WP8 owners are having with their devices. They're basically picking up things over time and storing them needlessly in this "Other" storage area. Nokia released an app called "Storage Check" to help remedy the situation. I recommend downloading it. It should help to clear up a bit of space.

    1. The .xap is 1GB, but since it's a zip-archive you'll need that 1GB and about 1.5GB for the extracted game, and the OS reserves a lot of space. But you can put the .xap on your SD card and install the game that way, and it should work
    2. do you have the storage check app? you can find it in the settings and try to free up some memory
    3. is it formatted to fat32? that worked for me.

    Storage Check does not work on Lumia 822 for whatever stupid reason.
    And how do I format the sd card to fat32? I've never even heard of that.

    Storage Check will not work on phones that haven't had the latest firmware update, including the 822. Verizon 822s have not received the update as of yet. I would also suggest you format the card in your phone.Settings>Phone Storage>SD card>Format.

    I had the same problem with the SD card. What i suggest is to buy a new SD card class 10, or at least class 4, i read in a old treat that the lumia 822 had SD card problems and that nokia suggest to buy class 10 SD Card. mine works great.

    IMO SD card is broken on the 822. It seems random if a card works right or not. Hopefully GDR2 will fix this, portico improved it.
