Here's what we're trying to achieve

Procedure

* In ES File Explorer, Open the Root folder  > System folder >  ETC 
* Using a notepad editor, Open vold.fstab (you're going to be editing this)

* If prompted, grant super user permission

* In vold.fstab , look for these lines
Code:
dev_mount sdcard /storage/sdcard0 [email protected] /............
dev_mount sdcard2 /storage/sdcard1 auto /................

* Change sdcard0 above to sdcard1 and sdcard1 below to sdcard0 (what you're doing is swapping them)
* Save vold.fstab then restart the phone

sometimes, you might have flashed a custom ROM that mixes them up. This will help fix it. Also, you can swap to expand your phone storage (make apps write to SD card as phone storage)
