its no good ignoring the " not compatible for this OS message) i suggest you get a set of 7th gen files instead and try those. or go to apkmirror and file an older version of the incompatible one
the 256k sd card is a separate issue and trying to fix both at once will be confusing
does the device still work in that apps on main memory () amazon apps) all still work, and if yo look at storage in settings does it show both sets of free storage.
you may somehow have mounted the card to be used INSTEAD Of internal memory though I did not know that was possible ?
me: I'd take out(unmount) the card, so a soft reset: hold down power button for 40 secs ignoring messages until it shuts down, then restart, delete all google apps and then start over with a different set.
once those are done I'd go back to the SD card puzzle. what make of card is it and how exactly did you add it ?
|FYI from my notes, when I did a 2017 HD8:
download the 4 APK files below using the stock web browser, SILK and install them in that same order, then REBOOT your tablet and afterwards open up the Google Play Store and log in with your Google account:

1. Google Account Manager 5.1-1743759
http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-...-apk-download/

2. Google Services Framework 5.1-1743759
http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-...-apk-download/

3. Google Play Services 10.2.98 (230-146496160)
http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-...-apk-download/

NOTE (3): If you have a Fire HD 8 2017 (7th Generation) use this APK below instead of the above.

3. Google Play Services 10.2.98 (240-146496160)
http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-...-apk-download/
4. Google Play Store 7.4.25.L-all [0] [PR] 145823605
http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-...-apk-download/

Over time the Google Play Store and Google Play Services apps will auto update themselves in the background.
I just want to thank you for providing the help. I pre-purchased the 8th Gen HD 8, so it was delivered on the release date, maybe October 8th or so. Anyway, I've ben trying to install Google Play Store from day one to no avail. Happened upon this forum last evening. Read this thread with interest, shook my head the entire time knowing it wouldn't work.

Decided to try one last time before giving it up. Well I followed your instructions step by step and used/installed the older files you listed. Voila' it worked and Google Play Store is up and running. My thanks Mr. Stumped for your input.

Yes, I found the best way to use the SD card is as external storage.
The Old Man> Here's what I did prior to trying again: 1- I removed the SD card. 2- I did a factory restore. 3- I downloaded the files, installed them in sequence. 4- I rebooted and launched Google Play Store. Got concerned when I got the spinning "checking info." But then the username and password box popped up. More spinning, then the "I agree" box. More spinning and all of a sudden it brought me to a screen I had not seen. Hit continue and it worked.

Follow the sequence and older files "stumped" listed. Hope this gives you hope.
