Media :: SPMO Files / What It Is - For And Can I Delete It?
Sep 28, 2010
New to Android and new to forum. I came from Blackberry and liked to keep things cleaned up...unused apps/files etc.
Now with my Motorola I1, I like to do the same.
My question is, I came across a file on my SD card named .spmo file...
Not sure what it is or for, and, can I delete it?
Sometimes I'm browsing the web and... One more download... And then oops! Another one...Then I realised that those downloads are still in my download list and there's no option to COMPLETELY remove them. Also, where do I clean browser's temporary files?
I uploaded about 50 pictures from iPhoto (using a Mac) just to see what they looked like and then later formatted the Droid's SD card, so the pictures were no longer there.
Now, if I mount the Droid via USB and view the file structure there is a folder named /albumthumbs which contains 50 files, presumably for the 50 pictures a had on the SD card.
To me, these file, unless linking to actual photos stored on the SD card, take up extra space in the phone's memory (not worried about the SD card). I wonder if I can safely delete them (just the files...not the folder)?
I have a Samsung Galaxy I7500 using android 1.5. I extended my phone with a 16GB microSD. I copied a big music collection (around 800 files) into a folder on this SD. Now the problem is that the music player can't find all the files.
I know that there are several threads about android not finding music. The answers are usually that the library hasn't yet been updated or that the ID3 tags are not correct. I have checked both.
Btw. I can play the files using ASTRO.
In my opinion it seems as if android can't build up a library with too many entries. If I rename the files or put them into different folders, songs disappear and reappear quite randomly.
Do you have any solutions? Is there a music player which doesn't use the native music players index of files?
My application gets playlist from a XML file, requests URL of mp3 file from server, downloads and plays it. It was able to download mp3 file but unable to play it. When I used emulator with Android 2.1, it was displayed in LogCat:
I have a few ringtones I dowloaded through a ringtone app that I've since deleted. I no longer use these ringtones, and would like to delete them from the phone. is there anyway to do so? I can't seem to find them in a file mode. I can get to them through choosing a ringtone, but can't delete them, and only 2 of them showed up in the music category. is there anyway to find them in the phone and make them go away??
I recently downloaded some mp3 ringtones from myxer.com a few of them werent what i thought they were, so i want to delete them but i cant figure out how! i tried using both astro and a player to get into my system and sd folders but i cant find these goddamn files anywhere. under system/media/ringtones it only shows the ringtones that came with the phone.
I have dl'ed the same ringtone twice from myxer.com, but I can't delete one of them.I have tried going to [[Settings>Applications>Manage Applications>DRM Protected Content Storage Then press Clear Data]] but I don't see [DRM Protected Content Storage].I have also used Astro, but I didn't find anything in any of the files.Is there another way to delete them?If not, I guess I will just Factory Data Reset it and go from there.
is there any way of managing/deleting files (eg PDFs that you download) on the SD card from the phone itself ? ie can you do it without connecting to a PC and mounting as disk drive ?Also - just bought a 16gb SD card and it seems like the speed of access/saving photos and transferring music from PC is much slower than with the 4GB card that came with the phone. Is that normal or have i got a dud/fake SD Card ? ( i know - I bought if from ebay - but it was a proper 30,000+ feedback seller of memory cards..)
Is it possible to remove files from res/raw once the program is running? I'd like to include some mp3s in the app I'm making, but if the user doesn't like them, I'd like to provide the option to delete those files. Is there a way to delete files from res/raw once the app is running?
How are you guys packaging files with your apps? In res/raw? Or a different approach?
Have just got my Desire HD and I'm loving the feel and look of it. This is my first touch phone/ANDROID phone, having previously owned the NOKIA N95 8GB, which I was more than happy with and would have kept it but the pull of the DESIRE just proved too much My teething problems seem to be with my music. I've put a load of albums on the phone from my PC. Some I can't find on my phone?!?! Others have gone on twice. I cannot delete the files from the phone. Does anyone know how to delete music files?
I went into the synch area of Windows Media Player and marked a bunch of my music file not to synch any more. So I figured on the next synch of my Droid X (Android 2.1) the corresponding files that were already on the phone would disappear. But they didn't. Shouldn't they? Do I have to go through and manually delete them one by one from the phone?I'm not sure Windows Media Player's approach to setting up a synch list makes sense at all. Is DoubleTwist or WinAmp less confusing?
I am developing a small application using file operations. when ever application lunches I am writing some information about the app user in the location of "/data/anr/". While deleting the application i want to remove those files in that location. Can any one suggest me how to do this? Is there any permission needs to be added?
Deleting audio files on my nexus 7. I recently used isyncr to download my itunes library onto my nexus 7. I put some of the songs I didnt like on there by mistake and I want to delete it but i cant find a way how to do so. I went on settings and on storage and click audio files but when i clicked on them it just played them. I really want the memory that the songs are taking up back, how to delete audio files from my nexus 7.
I have a rooted Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Within the system file /system/framework/framework-res.apk/res/drawable-xhdpi/ are about 17 little "emo_im_xxxxx.png" files that represent the little "green alien" emoticons that Android's stock SMS program inserts into text messages when certain text-based emoticons are input.
I want to delete these .png files so that the "green alien" emoticons no longer replace my standard text smilies. I don't care that others may not be able to see them. *I* don't want to see them, LOL. I've hated them since I got the HTC Droid Incredible two years ago, and I want them gone. I don't want to use a separate messaging app (Handcent, etc.). I like the stock app. I have Root Explorer, but the only option it gives me when I navigate and select these .png files is to "Extract" them.
I rooted my phone for the sole reason of being able to access/edit system files so I could get rid of these ugly little buggers, but have not had much luck after a full day of Googling, downloading, installing, uninstalling, packing, repacking, pushing, pulling and rebooting. There has got to be a simple solution to something that should honestly be built into the Android OS as a simple "auto-smilies on/off" toggle switch in settings.
