Samsung Vibrant :: Can Not Access From PC The SD Or Internal Flash Storage

Jul 20, 2010

Initially all worked OK. But then after some installs from the Market i am not able to access any internal flash storages. Phone was not rooted.

Here are some facts:

- i see the drive letters assigned for both of them on PC but when you click Explore the message is "Please insert a disk into drive M: (or N or whatever)".
- They are shown as mounted on the phone . Dismount and mount again changes nothing
- the phone is recording photos/videos OK on internal memory means flash is working fine.
- SD card is perfectly working too. if you extract it and put into computer you can read/write it. On the cell you can play music from it etc no problems
- I restored everything with Factory Data Reset but things did not change
- Same story from another PC
- Samsung Kies shows the files in PC Windows Media Player which are on Vibrant's SD card but can not read/download them

Is this some driver problem ? Or flash memory is locked by Vibrant OS?

I suspect EasyTether or PDANet third party driver for Samsung phones is responsible.
Tethering works though

Android :: Internal Memory And External Storage

Aug 18, 2010

I've started seeing some apps that offer to read/write data to the internal phone memory (like Super KO Boxing 2, which offers to save a whopping 52MB to the phone memory). I suppose this is because newer Android devices have a lot of internal storage, as opposed to my devices, which have very little. I would like to support internal storage in my app as well.

But it's a bit difficult to implement a solution to something that I don't really know how it works. For example, do these newer devices allow users to upload files to the internal memory, like it's possible to do with the SD card? Can someone explain internal storage from an user perspective and recommend strategies for supporting read/write operations both for internal and external memory (ie: letting the user choose which memory to use at startup, like the Super KO Boxing 2 app)?

Android :: Internal And External Storage - Force Close

Jul 6, 2010

I have an app that accesses music and I had at least one user complain that some of his songs are on internal storage and that causes a force close. My question is do I have to do 2 calls for each song now or can I make a query that will look at both the internal and external memory?

General :: Expanding Internal Storage Onto External / SDCard?

May 8, 2013

I finally upgraded to android, i got the cheapest phone possible(kyocera milano) which seems to be a mistake. The phone has only about 300mb internal storage and can barely handle its own updates(because of the limited storage). so i would like to know if its possible to make the phone "think" that some of the sd card is part of its internal memory? I found an adb driver for it(dont ask me where or which one because i had no idea and started messing with one until it worked) i have not tried rooting but can if i need to.

General :: Can't Access Internal SD Storage?

Nov 9, 2013

So the other day I was trying Cyanogenmod 9 on my galaxy pocket, however I didnt realize it wasn't an official release and it was REALLY bugged and I made a huge mistake because i forgot to install CWM. Thing is installed this rom and I belive i pretty much bricked my phone because now I can't get access to any of my networks, wi-fi, bluetooth, or usb mass storage or my sd card are not being recognized either...

What I've tried so far was sending the stock rom through Quick ADB Pusher, but it tells me that even though my phone appears to be root It wont allow it to access, then I tried different ways to root and unroot because apparently SU is not giving me the permissions. So finally tried my last option with ADB and was trying an adb push but I keep getting permision denied if I send it to /root or read only file if I send it to /system also tried Asb shell $su but I keep getting a denied message.

Android :: Application Access Permission To Files On Internal Storage

Jun 30, 2010

A question about the internal storage that's private to each application (especially when storing files with Context.MODE_PRIVATE).

How is that storage actually assigned to the application? Just by package name or also somehow bound to the sign key of the app?

Let's say I have installed application 1 and then write another application 2 with the same name and package name (just differently signed with different keys) and install it (app 2 replacing app 1), would that application 2 get access to the /data/data/[app]/files ?

Or would I not even be able to replace app1 with app2 due to different sign keys in the first place?

General :: Write Only Access To Internal / External SDCard On Kitkat

Jun 2, 2014

I am using a mt6582m device with kitkat 4.4.2 with supersu. I can use root to write to system, data and cache using es file explorer, can also read and write to any sd card, but apps like titanium backup, online android backup, ram expander can't read/write to sd card.

Eg.1: ti backup read backups, can do all operation except backup and restore.
I had read a lot, changing backup path didn't worked nor any odex file is there. Using v6.1.5.6.
Eg. 2: ram expander can create swap file on sd but can read it saying 'not found'. Swap can be used with cache partition.
Eg. 3: online nandroid backup says pat not vaild.

I had tried, sd fix app, manually editing platform.xml, xposed module to 'handel external storage', change permissions using es file explorer, editing ramdisk.

There is storage/sdcard0 and 1
Also mnt/sdcard and mnt/sdcard2 (symlinked)
Also mnt/media_rw/sdcard0 and 1 (not readable even in es file explorer)

HTC EVO 4G :: Limited Internal Storage And Bigger SD Card

Jun 17, 2010

My internal storage is currently 337 MB. I was planning on buying a bigger SD card, either 16GB or 32GB. I'm very new to everything with Androids and have never been big with computers. I read that if I want a lot of applications and everything that I would have to root the phone because the internal storage is so limited and then move everything to the SD card. I tried rooting the phone, it didn't work (I didn't mess up anything with the phone, probably just missed a step), but considering I still know so little about all this I decided it would be better to wait with rooting. Will I be fine with not rooting my phone and picking up a bigger SD card or will my phone run very slow once I start installing a lot of stuff?

General :: Exchange Internal USB Storage With SD Card

Jun 5, 2013

Bricked my Maxell Maxtab C8 while trying to exchange the Internal USB storage with the SD Card. The only thing that happens when it boots is that the Android Boot logo comes up and stays there forever. I have managed to get it in some kind of recovery mode (image of cute green little android laying on it's back with with a red triangle), have also managed to install Android SDK manager and issued the command "adb devices" in shell - reporting "{serialnumber} recovery".

I need firmware to put on the device, where I can find that? Does not need to be original (4.1.1), I'm satisfied if I get it to work again.

As far as I know it's some kind of MID tabled branded Maxell, at least it said that in the settings while it still worked, and also Windows claimed that.

General :: Emulated Internal Storage As SD Card?

Apr 16, 2014

Yesterday I received my Huawei Honor 3C and I've installed MIUI ASAP instead of Emotion UI. Everything's great but I have a problem with double SD Card, I mean: I have my own external card and the phone got his own by emulating it's internal storage as SD Card (it's a symlink to /storage/emulated/0 and it's the same as /storage/emulated/legacy, so this fake sd is eating up my storage, there are also other symlinks in /storage/, /mnt/ and even in root folder there is a symlink sdcard->/storage/emulated/legacy). Phone and apps are correctly seeing external card as SD Card but in reality the internal storage is being used for everything.Because of this I have only about 5GB available instead of 64GB

Is there any way to terminate the emulation or changing it's target to sdcard2 so that I could use my card correctly? I've tried few things but nothing works. Symlinks are being recreated during boot so editing or deleting them does not work. Editing vold.fstab does nothing because ext is being mounted after boot while the emulation stars while in it - I guess that a proped ini script could do the work.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Showing Wrong Memory On Internal And External Sd Card

Sep 14, 2010

Prior to installing the external card - the folders app showed /sd. Which I assumed was the internal one. Then I insert the external one, reboot the phone, and tehre is no additional directory in the folder view. Why is this? Secondly, its a 16GB card. Its reported as 14.58GB. The format option is greyed out. Is it automatically mounted at power on? Ideally I want to know where I install things to know that they are on the external card.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Deleting PLS File That Transfer To Internal Or External SD Card

I registered because I have this weird problem of the phone deleting any PLS file that I transfer to the internal or external SD card. I can transfer other file types to the card and they stay there. Is this deliberate by Samsung or Android generally? Can anyone else retain PLS files in their SD card?

Samsung Captivate :: SD Card And Phone Internal Storage

Jul 28, 2010

When I look at the settings and "SD card and phone storage" option I see the different types of storage. Based on what I see, please verify the following assumptions are correct. The external SD card is obviously the one I added. I assume it can be used to store media files (via USB, direct write on a PC, etc.). I read until Froyo we won't be able to install apps on this card.
The internal SD card is what is built into the phone for apps and other things those apps write to the phone.

Looks like Google Listen writes to this area (can't make it write to the external SD and not sure why). It appears that the only things writing to there are my camera and of course any music, pics, or videos I load on there directly. Nothing else seems to make use of it. The internal phone storage is for things like the OS and is pretty much off limits. When I go into the "My Files" app on the phone it dumps me into the home directory which happens to be /sdcard. I assume this is the internal SD card? Under that directory it also has "/sd" which appears to be my external SD card. Why would they make it look like "/sd" is a subdirectory of "/sdcard" when it's not?
