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.
I am coming to you via BB Tour. I had a ton of pictures saved on my SD card and now I want to take all those pictures and put them on the SD card on my new EVO. I have plugged both phones into my computer and tried that with just one picture to see if it would work and I could not find the picture that I moved. Can someone please give me some step by step instructions on this? Also while I have you guys attention for a moment I am also having problems hooking up the hot spot. My computer is saying that it is reading it and says it is connected but when I pull up the web it says that it can not be connected.
I have a Motorola Droid, it is not rooted and I am currently in a deployed location and have no service/access to any networks. My phone got a little wet, but still works for the most part and I want to factory reset it without losing my apps/music/contacts/pictures etc. Is there a way to move all of this stuff to the SD card using and explorer straight from the phone without using a computer? I am out of options.
I have a CyanogenMod nightlie I need to install on my phone. I downloaded it I and found it in Astro manager but I don't know how to move it to my sd card so it shows up in recovery mode. Moto droid. If someone could tell me how to move the zip files to my sd card that'd be great.
If I get rid of my motorola droid and move to the HTC incredible can I simply move my existing sd card between phones and keep all of my files, photos and apps? Or will I have to transfer everything off on to my pc, reformat the card and manually move the files and folders I want to keep?
Is it possible to create files in subdirectories created under "/data/data/packagename/files/" directory using openFileOutput method in android?
ie there is a sub-directory by name "text" inside the "/data/data/packagename/files/" directory. I want to use the openFileOutput (String name, int mode) method to write a file eg:sample.txt into this directory....Is it possible to use openFileOutput method to do it....
Is there a program for the Android OS that allows to to access your files and directories, like 'Windows Explorer' does on your desktop pc? I have some audio files that I would like to move to the ringtone directory.
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;
I'm storing my Android project in a Subversion repository. After recently shuffling a bunch of stuff around I started getting tons of errors like: syntax error entries/project_name/src/.svnline 1Android AIDL Problem syntax error don't know what to do with "" entries/project_name/src/.svnline 28Android AIDL Problem etc.
It seems as if Eclipse is trying to build the files in the .svn directories now. This setup used to work fine.
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:
I noticed that other apps have issues as well. For example the google finance app logs the following message:
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?
I find it kinda annoying that recordings made the voice recorder application show up in the music player. I'd like to have only my music play when I set it to shuffle. I have all my music in a folder called music. Can I limit the music player to search in that folder only?
I need to generate a changelog of sorts between two Tags within a project controlled using git. Specifically the android source code. This list should include any files/directories/etc which have been edited, moved, renamed, deleted, created. and if you have a way to do this over the entire android source at once... even better.
If I upgrade my SD card from say 8 to 16 gigs... can I merely copy over the directories from my old card to my new one so that my apps still work the same? Are there any hidden files or directories I need to worry about?
Now that I have my phone rooted and sense able flashed is it ok to wipe all the contents from my sd card? There is a lot of remnants leftover on it and it bothers me that there are so many useless directories on it.
I took a few videos that I want to move to my pc, but I am having trouble finding the files on my phone. They are not save to my SD card, because I didn't know how to do that before I took them. Where can I find them so I can transfer them over?
Was thinking about upgrading my stock 2gb card to a 16 or 32 soon. So I have a few questions. 1)Since my Dinc is rooted, will I have to copy anything to the new card after formatting it, or should my phone remain unaffected? 2) I know there is class 2, 4, and 6, with each having faster read/write speeds and being quite a bit more. Will those speeds really make much difference when being used in my phone for backups, random files, apps, and music or videos? 3) Can I copy my sd card files to my phone's internal memory and transfer them that way? Or do I need to transfer them through my computer?
From what I was told, the Inc supports 32gb microsd card. So I ordered a Sandisk one...class 4. I got it and tested it out. It seems like it can transfer/read small files....but anything big it wouldn't read properly. It's funny cuz a movie file would transfer and play...but if I delete it and transfer the same exact file over, it wouldn't play. Or if I transfer music, some files play and some wouldnt. And some even would merge into one file. Like one song would play and then all sudden another song would POP up like what a DJ does when they mix songs together.
I know I might have a defected one but this is a legit Sandisk card. So what else could be the problem? Should I transfer the file one or slower so the card can read it....is there a way or procedure to using a 32gb MicroSd card? Lol. I mean I have a 16gb right now and it reads and transfers fine. With the 16gb I can literally drag a folder of 10 movies and it would be fine.
