Samsung Captivate :: Internal SD Card Not Mounted After USB Disconnect

Sep 9, 2010

I'm quite new to Android and the Captivate (but not new to operating systems). I ran into an issue that I can't yet figure out, but I wonder if other people have also encountered. With some USB chargers (notably Blackberry chargers), I've noticed that the USB data connection prompt comes up. Regardless of the setting I choose (including canceling the dialog), the internal SD card is unmounted. If I disconnect the USB cable, the internal SD card is STILL unmounted and I don't get an option in the UI to mount it again. I end up having to reboot the phone. Attached is a screen shot of the SD card status screen when this issue occurs. So, what would be a good way to troubleshoot this? Get dmesg output, perhaps?

General :: Cloning USB Mounted Card As Internal Storage?

Jul 25, 2012

I have a nexus 7, OTG cable, flash drive and stickmount installed. As an external storage device this works fine for movies, audio etc.I'm not experienced with android having only previously used it on my touchpad, and wondered if the following was possible.

Is there an app that can essentially clone the externally mounted USB drive so that when installing an app with a large data download i can choose to download the data to the externally mounted usb drive instead of the main device memory. An example, Spiderman has nearly 2GB of data and i would prefer to move it using an app rather than having to continuously move the data file from the root to the external USB using es file explorer.

Samsung Captivate :: Damaged Internal SD Card Not Micro?

Jul 21, 2010

When I boot up my phone, I'm getting this message: "Damaged Internal SD Card." Not a micro SD card. It's saying my internal SD card is damaged. Am I screwed? Do I need to return this thing? Is there a way to format the internal SD card on this thing? I found the "Format Card" option in settings. It's working fine, although the fact that this came up in the first place is very troublesome. Some further information: I did the GPS thing where you dial *#*# and some number, then rebooted my phone. My internal card was fine until I rebooted. That was the first time I got that message of a damaged internal 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?

HTC Incredible :: Anyone Else Having SD Card Disconnect

Jun 12, 2010

I've had to reboot my phone 3 times in the last 2 days because the SD card becomes unreadable. Yesterday I couldn't save an attachment from GMail because it said I needed to have an SD card installed. Then Astro wouldn't let me delete a file even though I was able to locate it. And today my widgets were all screwed up because according to them there was no SD card installed that had the skins. I don't mind dealing with an issue here and there, but there have a been a few occasions where this phone has gotten under my skin. Anyone else dealing with this? I seriously doubt the SD card is bad, although there's only one way to prove that. Is there an app that will dismount and remount the SD card while the phone is running for when these situations occur?

Android :: Mounted SD Card Access

Oct 4, 2009

Can an Activity still have read/write access to an SD card after it has been mounted to USB storage (connecting USB and selecting Mount from the resulting notification screen). In other words, does mounting the SD card lock out system access until USB is disconnected. I need to create a live channel between an application and an external USB device and I'm running out of options.

Aug 1, 2010

Well I have a problem and need some help. So for no apparent reason I started getting an error with my sd card last night. At the notification bar, it says the sd card is mounted as read only.

Its frustrating cause I can't take pictures as a result and all I see is that error message! Its an eyesore at the top of my screen.

Motorola Droid :: SD Card Not Mounted In DM Updater?

Mar 22, 2010

I have been running Cyanogen 5.0.5 since yesterday. I always jump back and forth between DM Updater and Clockwork depending on what recovery I need to flash a particular rom, update or kernel. Today I cranked up DM Updater expecting it to ask if I want to update recovery and I am getting a "Your SD card is not mounted" error. My SD card is fine. Just for giggles I went into my clockwork recovery and unmounted and remounted. ROM Manager reports no errors. I am at work so I can't install SB Recovery using my current PC using adb as I normally would. I guess the ROM I want to play with (SB Recovery format) will have to wait.

Samsung Captivate :: Format Internal Storage And Reinstall ROM?

Sep 18, 2010

I finally decided to apply a lag-fix to me phone. I used the RyanZA fix available in the market. I'm not exactly sure on the stock partition configuration on the Captivate but if I understand the lag-fix, an ext2 partition is created and the system files are moved to that partition. Thinking ahead for when Froyo arrives, I'm wondering if I can format all of my internal storage and reinstall a ROM. If I format the internal storage, do the necessary partitions need to be created manually or does installing a ROM create the needed partitions? I'm fairly new to Android so excuse me if my terminology is off.

HTC Incredible :: SD Card - Message On Notification Bar Said Mounted ReadOnly

Nov 5, 2010

Having a new and strange SD card problem.

Was using Astro to browse my SD card to try to open a QuickOffice word file. Got to the folder where the file was located, but then suddenly, Astro closed and returned me to my home screen. Also, got a message on my notification bar that said "Mounted ReadOnly. The SD card has an unexpected problem. Tapping (sic) to recover it."

Ok, well, I tapped where it said to tap and the message went away. Back in to Astro to browse the file and...same result.

Went into Settings and Unmounted the SD card, then remounted it. Back in to Astro to browse the file and...same result!

So now I'm concerned. Used "Gallery" to browse pictures that are on my SD card...no problem. Used QuickOffice to manually open the file I was looking for in the first place...no problem. It seems that only when I go to Astro and browse does this problem occur. BTW, I also tried using Estrong File Explorer and had the same result, so I don't think it's an app thing.

Only thing I've not yet tried is going in to Clockwork Mod and unmounting/remounting SD card. Funny thing is that all my files appear intact, it just seems that for some reason, phone all of a sudden decides that the SD card is mounted "read only" (whatever that means) and is kicking me out. Dunno that I like that but...oh well.

Rooted DINC with Clockwork Mod, stock ROM, no major root apps except SetCPU.

Android :: Can't Read List Of Images On Mounted Sd Card?

I'm working on an Android application that needs to look at what images a user has stored. The problem is that if the user has the sdcard mounted via the USB cable, I can't read the list of images on the disk. Does anyone know of a way to tell if the usb is mounted so that I could just pop up a message informing the user that it won't work?

HTC Incredible :: SD Card Mounted As Read Only After Froyo Update

Sep 19, 2010

Anytime my phone tries to do anything that might access the SD card, I get a notification that the card encountered an unexpected problem and was mounted as read-only. After a few searches, it seemed that unmounting and reformatting it might solve the problem. If that didn't help, erasing all phone data might fix the problem. Well, I wasn't able to unmount the SD card for some reason. That option wasn't ghosted out, but clicking on it didn't do anything. Eventually, I decided to just do the factory reset. Then I did a phone storage format.

After that I saw a tip that perhaps removing the card would help. What I did was remove it, booted the phone, and inserted it while it was on. This allowed me to unmount then format the SD card. The first thing I did was try to redownload some apps from the market. First on my list was google maps update. Immediately after clicking to download, I get the same notification that the SD card was mounted as read only as a result of an unexpected error. Given all this, is my card just junk after updating to froyo?
