Android :: Organizing Files On Sdcard Into Directories

May 27, 2010

I have images uploaded on the simulated sdcard on my emulator. I downloaded them from the browser, using the long-click on each image.

When I look at the file explorer in the DDMS perspective, I see that they are in the directory sdcard/download.

Now if I want to download some audio files and use them in an app to, say list the title of all audio files, will they go in the same directory? (I am trying to push the audio files manually from my computer to the emulator).

This doesn't seem right. Shouldn't the media files of different types (pictures, audio, video) go into different directories?

Also, thinking this through a little, how is something like this related to the physical directory on the sdcard?

Uri mMedia = android.provider.MediaStore.Images.Media.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI;

Android :: Creating Cache Files And Directories On HTC Desire

Oct 23, 2010

I've experienced a strange issue running applications on the HTC Desire.

When I call getApplicationContext().getCacheDir() or getApplicationContext().getFilesDir() from my activity this always returns null. In the emulator /data/data/com.myapp.android/cache respectively /data/data/com.myapp.android/files is returned.

Because of that I'm not able to use the webview class as it tries to create cache files and crashes with a null pointer exception. The logs:

CODE:..............

I noticed that other apps have issues as well. For example the google finance app logs the following message:

CODE:.............

Why I cannot create folders in this directory?

Is there a possibility to set the fileDir and cacheDir paths to the sd card or somewhere else? I looked at some classes like Context, Webview and CacheManager but I could not find a way to change it.

Do I need to set a permission to create cache files?

Samsung Moment :: Organizing Music Files

Jan 17, 2010

I dragged and dropped a bunch of music files from my Mac onto my Moment's SD card. In the Android music player, many of the albums (classical, mostly), were all jumbled together in an "Unknown artist" file. The instruction book for the phone says I should not use my computer to create new folders, or rename folders, on the SD. HOw, then do I delete and rearrange music files? I don't see a prompt for creating folders in the app on the phone.

HTC Incredible :: Moving Files And Directories From 2GB SD Carad To New 1g GB Card

Jul 20, 2010

I may opt to buy a larger 16GB card for my Dinc to replace the 2GB card that came with it that I've been using for weeks. Will it just be a matter of copying all the files and directories from the old card to a temp folder on my PC and then copying them back to the new card once installed in the phone? Don't want to lose what I already have on my 2GB card.

Android :: Save Files On Sdcard?

Aug 9, 2010

"Every Android-compatible device supports a shared "external storage" that you can use to save files. This can be a removable storage media (such as an SD card) or an internal (non-removable) storage. Files saved to the external storage are world-readable and can be modified by the user when they enable USB mass storage to transfer files on a computer." PROBLEM: I cannot write to a file on the sdcard. QUESTION: Is it possible to write to a file on the sdcard?

If YES, what do I need to do to make File.canWrite = true? I am using Android 2.1 update 1, API level 7, Eclipse, and HVGA skin. I am running my app / troubleshooting on the Android SDK ADV. When the AVD is running, I check settings > sdcard total 49.21MB, available 49.07MB................

Android :: Application That Can Read And Write Txt Files To SDCard

May 3, 2010

I have an application that can read and write txt files to the phones sdcard. By using this code for reading files:

@Override protected void onListItemClick(ListView l, View v, int position, long id) { super.onListItemClick(l, v, position, id); mFileNameOpen = files.get(position);
String st = null; mVector.clear();
notepad.mNewEmpty = false; try { File f = new File(Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory()+"/ notepad/"+mFileNameOpen); FileInputStream fileIS = new FileInputStream(f);
BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(fileIS));
do { st = in.readLine();
mVector.add(st);
}while(st!=null); in.close(); ...
} catch (FileNotFoundException e) { e.printStackTrace();
} catch (IOException e) e.printStackTrace();

and this to write them:
try { File root = Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory();
File fileCheck = new File(root, "/notepad/" + fileNameSave + saveExtension);
boolean exists = fileCheck.exists();
if (!exists) { if (root.canWrite()) { File textFile = new File(root, "/notepad/" + fileNameSave + saveExtension);
FileWriter textWriter = new FileWriter(textFile);
BufferedWriter out = new BufferedWriter(textWriter);
out.write(SAVEAS); out.close(); written = true;
} else { written = false; else { written = true; showMaybe = 1; showDialog(DIALOG_SAVE_EXISTS);
catch (IOException e) {Log.v(getString(R.string.app_name), e.getMessage());

This has been working fine on my Tattoo and all the emulators I've tried this on. But it does not seem to be working on moto droid. Is there something different to consider with moto droid? Or have I missed something in the manifest maybe?

General :: SDcard Or Android Creating Unwanted MP3 Files?

Sep 28, 2012

I cannot play my mp3s without one or two songs repeating over and over, before going to a new song, then the player goes back to the same repeated ones. I noticed that extra files are being created continuously in the mp3 folder. Even if I make a play list the player still manages to go back to these invader files. Is that a micro sd card or android issue. I first notice it after I install ics on my SGS I9000. Now I am JB (I9300OXADLI8).

General :: Recover Lost Files From Internal SDCard Of Android Phones

Mar 12, 2014

Today android phones are coming with an internal storage which is called the internal sdcard. Because of this the need for external sdcards is vanishing day by day. But when your phone is factory reset you lost all the data stored in it while in case of external sdcard you have an option to save your data. If you accidently lost all the data stored in your phone then don't worry I have a solution to get it back. This trick will work on phones having mass storage mode support, if you are running android 4.1 jellybean and above then root your phone to get mass storage( the tutorial is different for different phones),

If you have accidently lost all your files, photos and videos from your phone then after this do not copy new files to the phone. This also include clicking photos and capturing videos. If you copy new files to the phone then you are actually reducing your chances to get back your deleted photos and videos and other files. In short just don't download anything to your phone, do not use the internet on your phone till the time when you get back your lost files back.

This trick will only work on android phones having mass storage mode and MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) options. If your device is rooted then you can enable mass storage mode on your android phone. After enabling mass storage mode you can get back deleted photos, videos and all files from the internal storage of any android phone.

Requirements
1. Recuva for Windows 7, Windows 8
2. A USB data cable.

Now Follow The Steps Below
-Download and install recuva. While installation do not uncheck any option.
-Now connect your android phone in mass storage mode. Connect it to pc a notification will appear in the phone, tap it to enable mass storage.
-Now open My computer and you will see Removable disk.
-Open recuva and click Next, on the next step All Files will auto selected. Again click Next. Then choose In a specified location and click Browse.Choose the removable disk or MTP disk here and click Next.
-In next step put a check mark in Enable Deep Scan and click Start.
-After scan is finished you will see the list of all deleted files. Green circles is means that file can be recovered while red circle means unrecoverable file.
-Now check the box next to Filename to select all files. Click Recover on the bottom right and choose Desktop .Your deleted files will be recovered.

HTC Magic :: Error Deleting Files - Sdcard

Dec 10, 2009

Currently I am having an issue with my SD card storage.

It started when iMusic told me i was out of space, on a 4gig SD card when i had mayb 5 songs on the phone!

So i went to my astro manager file manager to delete some files just to see. i keep getting "error deleting files" on anything i try to delte, ive taken the card out rebooted etc etc.

It makes me think the card may be locked? as its not even letting me save anything to it now.

Should i just root the dang thing to avoid problems like this?

I can delete files by going into the generic "music" app and long touching the song and selecting delete.
