Android :: Ubuntu - Error - Failed To Create The SD Card
Oct 7, 2010
I see a lot of posts about writing to the SD card, but I believe my problem is different. I am unable to create the SD card during the process of building an AVD.
I initially tried to use the Android SDK and AVD Manager to do this, selecting
Target: Android 2.2 - API Level 8
SD Card: Size: 1024 MiB
Skin: Built-In: Default (HVGA)
Hardware: Property: Abstracted LCD Density, Value: 160
This pops up a window with the message:
"Result of creating AVD 'my_avd':
Error: Failed to create the SD card."
I tried to repeat the process from the command line, receiving a similar error:
Attempting to follow instructions for using mksdcard was equally unproductive; I think my basic lack of linux experience may be causing me a problem here. When I try to use mksdcard, it just reports that it cannot find the file or directory. Is the mksdcard tool available for use this way in linux?
I've added the android tools directory to my PATH variable, but I feel like there is obviously something else I'm missing. Perhaps some kind of access rights?
Attempting to run the android command with sudo did not seem to help either:
I even tried installing Eclipse and the ADT plugin and running the manager from there to no avail. Any tips would be most appreciated. Advanced warning that I am somewhat of a novice Linux user, so even if it seems like a no-brainer obvious thing to check, I could still have missed it.
The problem I had was when trying to sync my Evo 4g to Exchange 2010. I continually got the message "Failed to create the account. Please try again later". After searching on this site and trying everything on every thread, I was about to throw my hands up and send it back when I found the solution. This solution appears to not be posted on this site, so I figured I would help out others that might run into the problem in the future. I have done this now 2 or 3 times for other users that have had this issue and it has corrected it. I don't claim this solution will work for everyone, it simply what I did to correct for my users. I would suggest trying what other threads have as solutions before trying this one.
Im here because of my problem with SGA 2.Few days ago I bought ACE 2 and I found few problems with "external_sd".So the problems are
1. When I try to create folder it gives me error "Creation failed"
2. When trying to move folder from internal memory to external sd it gives me error like "Moving failed", while copying goes fine.
3. I can move/copy any file to sd card, but sometimes those files got corrupted, gives me error about memory when trying to open pictures, same problem when saved camera saved photo to sd card. Even getting error when trying to play video.
APK files got corrupted too.
4. When I have moved apps to sd card some while apps work great, but after some time cant launch apps because it gives me error about that app doesnt exist.
I tried formatting sd card with pc and android.
Repartition to same firmware with Odin.
Wipe cache, wipe data.
I dunno what causes those error, bugs, glitches. Is it phone or android sytem?
Tried many sd card and always got same errors. But when I mounted mine sd card to another phone it worked perfect.
I am trying to download the android source onto a new ubuntu 8.10 installation on a x86 machine. All the steps worked fine until I tried to init the repo client. I get the following. I can't find anyone else having such an repo error. I did find an obscure message that said the python error might be due to a missing readline module. I tried to install lib32readline5-dev as in the download instructions and got the following error Any ideas anybody? I am somewhat new to linux but have had a fair amount of unix experience in the past. Code...
Can someone help me with partition my SD card? I have APPS2SD installed but it wont partition it, neither will ROM Manager. I have Windows7 and Ubuntu 10.4. If it can be done with just the phone I'd prefer that method, then the Ubuntu method, then Windows (i hate the command prompt in Win).
How do i create a message box that says Connection failed "this application requires network access to work" and in the message box you click Settings or canceled. The same message box you get when you try to use the browser with no Internet connection. I have looked in the Browser code but could not figure out how the make a button that take you to the phone setting window.
I have received the following error when trying to install packages through the SDK and AVD manager tool: XML verification failed for http://dl-ssl.google.com /android/repository/ repository.xml. Error: The markup declarations contained or pointed to by the document type declaration must be well-formed. I have downloaded the latest versions of the Android SDK and AVD manager (revision 5), Eclipse IDE for Java EE developers (version 1.2.2), and the ADT (0.9.6). I have checked the Force https box in the settings tab, I also have both an http and https version of the same url. I re-downloaded all components multiple times. I am using Windows XP service pack 3. Anything anyone could suggest would be extremely helpful. You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Android Developers" group.

I have the following problem. I was developing in android using the eclipse and android-sdk-windows saved in an folder (e.g. C:androidandroid-sdk_r07-windowsandroid- sdk-windows and C:androideclipse-pulsar-helios-win32). But after i downloaded and installed the eclipse and android sdk again, in the after folder, i got this error message: "Failed to parse the output of 'adb version' " and can't run my application, because the emutaros that starts is not identified by the eclipse, i can't find it into "Devices" tab from eclipse. I found from the net the following http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2260118/failed-to-parse-the-output "Try closing Eclipse, issuing a 'C:UsersMohitDocumentsAndroidSDKools kill-server' command from terminal and retrying. If that still doesn't work, you could try opening Activity Monitor to see if there are any existing adb processes running, and kill them. but i am using Windows XP and i don't know how to use kill-server command from the terminal. I mean in run/cmd there are is no such a command or how can i use the second solution - to open Activity Monitor from Windows XP
I faced to the serious problem when building my environment. I use below software for compiling. android SDK (android 2.1) eclipse 3.5.2. At first, this problem occurred on eclipse 3.6. I looked for the reason and countermeasure on the web. As the result, I re-installed eclipse 3.5.2. however, the problem was not fixed yet... after building, the below message has been displayed. "Conversion to Dalvik format failed with error 1" if you know other countermeasure for this.
I'm having a problem with the LVL in one of my apps. Here are the projects in my eclipse workspace: com_android_vending_licensing - standard LVL my_app_1 my_app_2 my_app_3 All three of the apps use the same licensing library project (including the same SALT), and share the same code in their main activities for checking the license. But when testing, one of the apps continuously fails the license request and the others respond correctly depending on what test response I set in the market "Edit Profile" page. The error I get in logcat is: 08-04 15:20:20.863: ERROR/LicenseValidator(4883): Signature verification failed. And the dontAllow() function of the LicenseCheckerCallback is run. This error message originates from line 104 of LicenseValidator.java in the licensing library. I've done some debugging and the responseCode is set to LICENSED (see line 94 of LicenseValidator.java).
I have setup for Android development with 1.5 SDK on Mac O.S X - Eclipse 3.5. I want to upgrade the SDK, so as i followed to choose Window->Android SDK and AVD Manager from Eclipse. But it throws error as follows: XML verification failed forhttps://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/repository.xml.Error: cvc-elt.1: Cannot find the declaration of element 'sdk:sdk- repository'. Failed to fetch URL I tried "http" instead of https, but still getting the same error. I don't know why such crap error comes. If i see Android website, http://developer.android .com /intl/zh-CN/sdk/index.html its confusing.Could someone guide me easily to update Android SDK to 2.x or later without uninstalling my current setup environment.
I am trying to write a sample program to record the video (say camcorder application). When i run my program using the emulator (I have android-sdk- windows-1.5_r3) I see java.io.IOException: prepare failed. error in logcat output.
Further I can see that I have came across this error when i call MediaRecorder.prepare() from CamcorderActivity.surfaceCreated() But I am surprised to see that activity got launched and I am seeing the camera preview! Again the preview is seen only in half of the screen! Its weird!!!
Further when i do recorder.start() to record the video I get java.lang.IllegalStateException. Yes this is obvious since the prepare () has failed. But the question is why prepare() has failed ?
I've been trying to use Eclipse and the Export Wizard to create a signed apk. unfortunately, I cannot seem to generate an UNSIGNED apk. Every time I "clean and build" I get the error below, which I read I can get rid of by "reload" or refresh then building again. however, the debugger automatically signs with the debug key after I do this, defeating the purpose. how do I build the apk w/o signing it?
I have a working(Released) project that needs some updating. The Project was created with SDK 1.1 on Windows and Ecplise 3.4. A couple months ago i moved away from Windows to Mac and installed all tools on the mac including Android SDK 1.1. Everything was working fine at that time.
I never bothered compiling the project against SDK 1.5 as the program was running fine on a 1.5 Device. But now i need to do some changes and installed SDK 1.5, following the installation guideline (http://developer.android.com/sdk/1.5_r1/ upgrading.html#UpdateYourProjects).
So I build my project against SDK 1.1 (as suggested) and failed with the following error messages : - no classfiles specified - Conversion to Dalvik format failed with error 1
I receive the same error if I compile with SDK 1.5 (clean + build).
First i thought there is something wrong with my code but could not find anything. After that I tried the example JetBoy and received the same error. Using "Fix Project Properties" was without effect for booth projects.
Anyone know why I would be getting the errors below. The message below is showing up in the Console view, and I'm getting a "Conversion to Dalvik format failed with error 1".
My app has been working quite well for some time, and I just tried to update the SDK and DDMS to 0.9.9, and now it won't build.
I've done a search for the CharBuffer class and don't find any matches in my files, but I am using several API's (BUMP, C2DM, Admob). I definitely don't use any of the core-library in my code. If the error message is correct, I just can't quite figure out how to tell which API is the problem without almost wiping out my code base, or starting a new project and copying a few files at a time.
Oh... but the two files at the bottom of the file are missing android-6sdk.properties and android-5sdk.properties. Anyone know where I find them?
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but so far, no joy :).
In something other than a core library. It is likely that you have attempted to include in an application the core library (or a part thereof) from a desktop virtual machine. This will most assuredly not work. At a minimum, it jeopardizes the compatibility of your app with future versions of the platform. It is also often of questionable legality.
If you really intend to build a core library -- which is only appropriate as part of creating a full virtual machine distribution, as opposed to compiling an application -- then use the "--core-library" option to suppress this error message.
If you go ahead and use "--core-library" but are in fact building an application, then be forewarned that your application will still fail to build or run, at some point. Please be prepared for angry customers who find, for example, that your application ceases to function once they upgrade their operating system. You will be to blame for this problem.
If you are legitimately using some code that happens to be in a core package, then the easiest safe alternative you have is to repackage that code. That is, move the classes in question into your own package namespace. This means that they will never be in conflict with core system classes. If you find that you cannot do this, then that is an indication that the path you are on will ultimately lead to pain, suffering, grief, and lamentation. CODE:................
Not sure what is going on. Running Windows Vista x64. Not had really any problems with eclipse. I had to upgrade to 1.5 and when I did that I got all kinds of install errors. So I said 'f-it'. I decided to start over and downloaded the 1.5SDK, downloaded the Eclipse for Java, Not Eclipse classic (someone said that was an issue). So now I have Eclipse for Java (or something to that name). Each time I try to compile it says 'Unknown Error: SDK is not loaded yet'
I'm getting an error when trying to use an external jar file to access Forward facing camera in Android. But when we try to load, i get error ""Installation error: INSTALL_FAILED_MISSING_SHARED_LIBRARY" on my console window of myeclipse. " when i saw a log file, the error was "unavailable shared library com.sprint.hardware.twinCamDevice"
