Why can I no longer install apps on my SD card after deleting files from it?

I have an Arnova 9G3 tablet that had some apps installed on the SD card but had to delete files as it got full. Now I can’t install apps like EZCAST, NEWS Republic as when I go to Google Play I am told after the software downloads that “CAN’T INSTALL ON USB STORAGE OR SD CARD.” Any suggestions?

    try with another sd card, if problem do not occur then the older one has some problems, try to format.
    you can try to soft reset Arnova 9G3 t or apply updates if available
    or
    1) setting- storage-sd card storage click unmount sd card
    2) install your desire applications
    3) mount sd card

    if still problems then try this article:
