I've been using an 8gig card for a while, but in order to watch a few movies over the weekend (going to my parents) I stuck a few .mtk files on the 4 gig card that came with the phone, the object being to transfer to the laptop once I got to my parents. unfortunately the phone wont boot with the 4gb card inserted, just trying the 8gig one again now.
I purchased an unlocked and unbranded Samsung Galaxy S i9000 from Amazon.
After playing around with it for some time, installing all sorts and getting to know how to use it I decided I would perform a factory reset to "clean" it before continuing to use it "properly".
Before performing the factory reset I navigated to "My Files", selected delete, then selected every single folder and file and deleted them. I then performed the factory reset.
Now I am missing 4 images which were available as wallpaper in "gallery" and probably several other files/folders.
I thought the factory reset would return the phone to its original state and reproduce any folders/files I may have deleted in the process. I thought they might be stored in a hidden "partition" or similar which I had no access to.
Anyway my questions are how can I restore my phone to its original state and which other files/folders would have been present initially but have now been deleted by me?
so when i was reconfiguring my gmail account and changed the login, it also deleted every single one of my contents and replaced them with contacts located in my gmail account. im pretty sure there isnt but is there any way to get the contacts back?
I rooted my galaxy s2 and installed deodexed rom with multi window feature. But the thing is that I accidently deleted default video player and now I am not able to play videos on tv via all share. I dont want to install that ROM again. So I just want its default video player and the instruction on how can I install that.
Formatted my SD card yesterday and was cleaning up the internal memory of music as well since I was having issues with duplicate playlists etc. Just recieved a call today and noticed it wasn't my normal ringtone. I go to contacts(any of them) and see there is only one option for a ringtone. So unless there is a virus on my phone, I've accidently deleted my stock ringtones. Anyway to get the rintone folder back on the phone short of doing a complete reinstall of the OS? Take it back. My ringtones are still on the phone on the internal memory. I can play them fine in Mixzing/stock player, but are not showing up when I click on contacts/ringtone etc.. I did do this yesterday: iSyncr FAQ - Basic | JRT Studio I have duplicate playlists and/or blank playlists on my phone, how can I fix this up? Your phone has an internal cache where it stores this information. Sometimes this cache gets out of sync. You can delete this cache by looking for an application called "Media Store" (or similar) in "Settings->Applications->Manage Applications". You may have to press the menu button and change the filter to show all applications. Once you find "Media Store", open its options page and select "Clear Data". Then reboot the phone to force the cache to be rebuilt. Also, try searching your storage for *.m3u files, delete any of these files that are not in the "syncr" directory.
my phone is VERY new, and I am VERY confused with most of it. However, on my home page there is (WAS) a text messaging icon, a voicemail icon, a browser icon, and then a market icon. Somehow a second text messaging icon showed up. So there was my normal original text message icon, and then a larger one above it. So I tried deleting one of them, it would not work, so i tried the other one, did not work. Then I turned off my phone and turned it back on and now they are both gone. I tried hitting menu, then add, then motorola widgets and then messages, but the only option for a text messaging icon is the red message icon, i was the actual text message icon, HOW DO I GET IT!!?? It's bugging me very badly.
What files can actually be deleted from an SD card through the file manager? It appears that there is a lot of garbage on there but was hesitant to start deleting what I think is useless as it may serve some function.
I'd like to start getting my music and pictures etc., on my Wildfire. I've got an 8gb micro-SD card. Question is how does the phone read the card? Do I have to set up folders on the card such as Music, Photos, Videos etc., or do I just pile all my files on the card and the phone then sorts out what's what?
My 16GB micro SD now almost full. There's only 500GB free space. I have lot of files and folders in my SD. But I don't have clear idea what're the large files and folders. So are there any app that can sort folders according to the total size?
I have an app which stores some files on the SD Card. After several uninstall and install, sometimes, the files just got deleted. Is that normal for android os to do that? What should I do to make sure that those files won't be deleted automatically?
I'm not trying to remove programs necessarily, but more trying to clean up my SD card. I don't know if this makes a difference, but I am rooted. I have a bunch of folders on my SD card that I'm not sure where they came from or what they are for. If anyone can tell me what I can delete, I'd seriously appreciate it. Here's my list:
.tmp (directory) albumthumbs (directory) amazonmp3 (directory - I've never used amazon mp3) Android (directory) Clockworkmod (Directory) Cracked Apps (I made this, I use this one) (Directory) data (directory) DCIM (directory) DiskCacheIndex14748 DiskCacheIndex16288 DiskCacheIndex21523 DiskCacheIndex35119 DiskCacheIndex37034 DiskCacheIndex68357 (not sure what type of file, but the icon is a blank sheet of paper)
So as the title states, I'm an idiot and delted everything off of my SD card. The idiot part comes from me getting all gitty about the 2.1 v3 update, not thinking about the pictures and videos that I didn't back up (my music and ROMs already were backed up) and deleting my SD card purposely to get rid of all the old, unneccesary files and folders. Anyways, is there anyway to get these old files back? I've seen another post about a file recovery program but it wasn't very specific.
I have an application which resides on the phone memory but downloads large data to the SD card on first launch (the app needs to be able to work without an internet connection most of the time) When using the recommend directory given in Froyo it seems all files on the SD card are deleted when I install a newer version of the .apk. I'd preferably like the files removed on uninstall, but not on upgrade since the files on the SD card aren't going to change between application versions, and forcing the user to re-download a large file that is independent of the application version does not seem reasonable. At the moment it seems I'm forced to use a different directory to the recommended one in order to stop Froyo deleting all the files when the application is upgraded. Am I doing something wrong, or is this how it is supposed to work (I'm guessing it is)?
Just wondered, it seems that sometimes when you download an app to try and then you remove it, does this completely remove all the files from the internal memory?, im sure i have done this before and it seems i loose a small piece of memory after uninstalling Just wondered if there was a certain uninstaller that completley removes all files & folders?
I accidently deleted 44 contacts on google contacts. I still have them in my phone, as I don't have a data plan and the wifi wasn't enabled, thankfully.Now, I want my phone to get those contacts on the google contacts. Is it possible to do that?
I usually view email with attachments from my pc because I usually lack the time to download the attachment. Today, I had some spare time so I tried to download an attachment. It downloaded fine but when I went to view it, I received a pop-up box to save it to the sd card. After pressing ok, I was told the save was successful but now I can't find it. Aside from pics and videos, how do I access other folders with saved data?
I was looking through the files via ASTRO and also Files last night. I noticed several cases where folders, which I removed the app, were still in the directory. Also, the Zedge folder was full of images from browsing I presume.
I've cleared the cache via the browser and a lot of stuff was not removed. I thought I deleted an app and traces still remain.
Newbie to Androids here, just upgraded from a nokia 2323 (yep, pretty big upgrade). When I connect my phone to the computer, I want to put files on the phone and be able to access them. I have Astro File Manager, but when I go all the way to the top level of folders with that, the folders available are.
app bin build customize etc fonts framework lib lost+found media usr xbin
And when I open the "external drive" (phone) on the computer, all I can see is. .bookmark_thumb1 .footprints albumthumbs backup data DCIM download LOST.DIR media miner_savegames (from gem miner) minerdemo_savegames (from gem miner demo im guessing) MP3 Photofunia (guessing its data for the Photofunia) rosie_scroll rssreader User Manual HTCSync_2.0.28 (application) robo_defense_full.bak

Took off the card connected to PC via card reader formatted it copied again plugged off plugged in files on the card plugged in to the desire turned on the phone files gone after couple more attempts I have only 2 folders with mp3s but rest is empty.I dont know what is going on.
I've added some icons (png) files to a folder on the SD Card. They are visible in EStrong, but not to other applications. They only become available when I power on/off. Is there a way to make the available? As I am toying with many icon sets and generally playing, it's annoying having to reset the phone everytime to see anything.
