    This error comes up while you are trying to install an application on the android phone. This issue comes up for most of the users. The issues come up mainly because of the issue with the memory card. The applications installed on the memory card cause the issue. To solve the issue the user needs to follow the following steps. The first and foremost thing that the user needs to do is to mount the SD card. The user needs to install the application first on the system and then transfer it to SD card. Another step to resolve this issue is to delete the file 'smdl2tmp1.asec'.

    The error code 18 message comes up due to memory card problem.
    This problem is faced by many android phone users.
    If you are installing the app in memory card this error comes.

    To solve this problem mount the SD card.
    Then install the application on your system/device.
    After that you have to transfer this app to your SD card.
    By this your problem will be solved.

    Error 18 is mainly related to the Camera issues of the device, if you install any App that prevents or arrests some of the normal functioning of the Camera then the device will display the error. Read Error 18 on Wikipedia that will give you more idea.

    Though the problem is mainly associated with Zooming function of the camera it can pop up for any general issues with the camera of the Android device.

    All the best.

    This message will appear when you install unattended application.
    during installation of applicaton , when setup tries to load driver for a mass storage ,this message will appear and hangs setup.

    Cause for error code 18 in android

    While installing unattended application
    Unattend.txt file indicates that mass storage device driver is required
    setup cannot load the driver for mass storage

    Solve the problem of error code 18

    Make sure floppy disk is empty while performing installation of unattended application.
    Remove the floppy disk and press any key to restart your android.
