HTC Incredible :: How To Access Internal Memory From Phone Using ES File Explorer?
Oct 9, 2010
Does anyone know how to access the internal storage memory using ES File Explorer? I have tried going up and down the folder hierarchy and can never find it.I've read that Astro File Manager can access it but I prefer using ES File Explorer and don't want to have two file managers on my DI.I am surprised at this stage of Android that a file explorer is not included in the OS.
can we view/edit/delete files on the onboard memory from the phone? is there a built in app i am not seeing that does this? i haven't seen this discussed yet.just to be more clear, i am talking about the 6.6gig that we are free to do whatever we want with.
No idea why, default is set to disk drive, only shows SD card storage on the computer. What am I doing wrong Ok it actually is connecting to both, but the drive for internal memory is saying please insert a disk into (E). I know they are both from the incredible from looking at the 'safely remove hardware' section of the PC and checking the box to display components.
I have download an app while i have not got enough space in my phone memory to install, thought that i will move it to sd card, the app didn't installed in my phone neither got deleted, its stuck in my phone memory now, and i am not finding a way to delete it manually.
Also I would like to know how to access the phone memory folders and files like we access the MC. So, that I can deleted the broken downloaded files. I have already tried with the cleaner apps from market.
Is anyone aware of a file manager that can read both the internal DINC memory and the SD card? Perhaps I'm missing something, but I've tried both ASTRO File Manager and ES File Explorer with no success.
I have downloaded a file from HttpConnection using the FileOutputStream in android and now its being written in phone's internal memory on path as I found it in File Explorer /data/data/com.example.packagename/files/123.ics
Now, I want to open & read the file content from phone's internal memory to UI. I tried to do it by using the FileInputStream, I have given just filename with extension to open it but I am not sure how to mention the file path for file in internal memory, as it forces the application to close.
I have my Nexus One connected with the USB.When I visit the File Explorer of the DDMS, if I click on the "data" folder the little plus near the name "data" disappear for 2-6 seconds and then reappear but the contenct of the folder "data" is not showed!
I have tried a lot of custom Roms. I'm on Neat ROM Lite now. Not sure which ROM changed my file access permission settings to cause this problem but I'm not able to delete any files from my external memory card. I was able to delete when I was on stock rom. The other problem is for a few apps I get an error message which says can't install on usb/sd card. I have posted this in another thread some time back but got no response.
This is what my file permission looks like.
I am able to delete when my fone is connected to PC via USB. So I don't think it has anything to do with a faulty sd card.
After upgrading my defy successfuly to cyanogenmod9, I cant access the internal memory of the phone through the computer. when I choose the "portal" option in the usb connections, the computer does the "beep" sound when theres a new hardwear plugged to it, but I can't access it.
How can I transfer files, like music, into folders in the internal storage?
In my android application I an storing an image file in internal memory using below code- FileOutputStream fos = con.openFileOutput(fileName, con.MODE_PRIVATE); fos.write(baf.toByteArray()); // baf - ByteArrayBuffer fos.close(); Can anyone please help me to read this image file from internal display it in an activity?
I installed ES File explorer v1.4.6 and I was able to add my freeNAS over wifi at home.I can access the folders and can list the thumbnails of the photos on the phone but when I try to view one all I get is a black screen with right and left arrows.If I copy and past the file onto the sdcard, EStrong can then view it from there.any ideas as to why it fails to view the files directly from the network server? It shows the loading process but no pic.
I opened my email and saved the attachment (which was my resume). I saved it to the phone and to the sd card but now I have no idea where it saved it. I would love to be able to access the file due to its importance but i just don't know where it is. Does anyone know how to access it?
A long time ago I had edited a file that is read on boot, in that file is written which one of the two 'partition' has to be mounted as what.
Basically, my 32GB microsd is seen as the internal memory of the device (which would be 12 GB), and the other one as micro sd. The result is that most application would go to the microsd by default, using thus 32GB for apps instead of 12GB.
This is because my microsd is failing. Changed with a new one, and now it is failing again. I suppose my phone has become a 'micro sd destroyer'. Cannot do anything about it, so better to use the internal memory instead of the card for main use..... So how do I switch back to normal mounting (micro sd as micro sd and internal memory as internal memory and not switched up) ?
When I go to the storage settings, it says that I have a 1.86gb (2gb) sd card, and only 649MB available on my internal phone storage. Do I have a different version or something? I was told that the Incredible have 8gb of internal phone storage.
The Dinc has a lot of internal memory but what use is it? Most apps do not see media in internal memory. Now with Froyo coming I see some discussions on the ability to install apps to the SD. Why? What are they freeing the space up for? I have a 16GB SD and space isn't really a factor for me. But, isn't internal memory faster than card access? How can I best use that space?
This folder includes screen shots that are used for Internet Browser bookmarks. It also includes screen shots of web pages that I did not choose to bookmark. When I clear cache while in "Internet" in "Manage Applications" it does not remove these jpg files that are not being used for bookmarks. When I clear everything while in Internet app (in settings) it does not remove these jpg files either. It also does not remove them from within the HistoryEraser app. The only way I can remove the jpg files is with Astro or when connected to PC. I have to go through them and erase jpgs that I do not want there.
There were 72 jpg files in that directory and they go all the way back to when I got phone (on 4/29). I have only added 5 bookmarks myself during that time. They do not take up a lot of space but I just don't want them there.
doubleTwist loaded all my music on my internal memory (took most of it). Can I connect my Incredible to my computer and manually transfer the music to my SD card? How would you recommend making this transfer?
Have you been putting your music, pics, videos, etc., on your SD, or your Internal 8G? I've been putting most on my 8G Class6 SD. Just felt like the phone would continue to run better if that Internal Memory wasn't loaded up? What do you guys think....opinions....?
It has be reported that Apps cannot be saved in the 8gb internal memory but in the 512mb rom. Is that a problem for anybody? Reviews from Infosyncvideos and the androidcommunity stated the problem. I dunno how big apps are but it shouldn't be a big problem.
I know a lot of apps using microsd for storage. I am not talking about the app themself I know they are limited to the storage in ROM I am just talking about data the app reads/write. I was searching why my maps weren't working with the weather channel app and found this thread: http://androidforums.com/htc-incredible/71829-weather-channel-radar-not-working.html
Also tried to download and use Epicurus and it crashes every time (thinking it stores usage data on your MicroSD. I'm theorizing because I don't have a microsd card in my phone and maybe a lot of apps have trouble using the incredible internal 8GB of memory? Thinking on buying a 8GB MicroSD card just for this.
I just got my Droid Incredible a few days ago and am really enjoying it.However, when I use the USB cable to plug in my phone to sync music/movies from my computer (Windows 7, 64 bit), it only recognizes the 2 gig MicroSD card that came with the phone, but not the 8GB Internal Memory.When I plug in the phone, the phone itself asks me if I want to charge or use disk mode and I have it set to disk mode.I can copy to the 2GB MicroSD card with no problems.Tried rebooting the phone and my computer, have all the latest Windows updates, etc.Any idea why my computer isn't seeing the 8GB internal memory?Is there a driver I need to install for it or some other setting on my phone? Can it only see either the microSD card or the Internal memory at one time, so I have to take out the SD card (that would be lame)?
My sitch is this: My HTC Incredible has broken screen and digitizer. Otherwise the phone seems to power up and work. I have all my pictures stored on the internal memory (boo). Is there any way to get to the internal memory given that I can't set the phone to USB Debugging mode? Is there an app that I can install on my pc that will allow me to "press buttons" on the phone? I have installed DroidExplorer and I can see the phone, and the sync works... But thats it.
