Samsung Galaxy S :: I9000 - Internal SD Card Not Mounting

Aug 23, 2010

I was trying to install the latest Froyo update on my new galaxy i9000 and ran into problems. The update was JP3. First the phone kept on flashing i.e. screen off and on. and then i had to reboot the phone and same problem. I tried to flash it again with odin but this time I got an error message:

Update Media please wait
E:Can't mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 (or /dev/block/mmcblk0) (No such file or directory) E:copy_dbdata_media:Can't mount SDCARD:"

Your storage not prepared yet, please use UI menu for format and reboot actions
copy default media content failed.

When I boot it moves past the Galaxy I9000m screen shows me the galaxy screen with animation and sound, the screen then goes of leaving me with a black screen and the buttons lit.

Now, no matter what I do I kept on getting this message. I have a feeling that somehow it messed up the internal sd card of my device.

Is there a way I could repartition my card (if that would solve it) and then reinstall a froyo 2.2 update.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Galaxy S I9000 Inbuilt Tether Application?

Sep 12, 2010

I've just got my new Samsung Galaxy S I9000 phone which looks awesome. I had been using a Nokia N97 Mini which had behaved OK and I've been using Joikuspot as a WIFI tether which is important because of my need for the internet during the day. I was really please to find that the Galaxy has an inbuilt tether application in the Mobile AP however I cannot get it to work and wondered if any one else had any issues? The Mobile AP kicks in ok and I can find it on my laptop however when I try to connect it just tells me that it cannot connect and goes into trying to diagnose the problem. I tried to bypass this by inputting the wireless connection manually but when I do it tells me the security option is wrong but does this for every option in the list.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Epic 4G Vs Galaxy S I9000?

Oct 1, 2010

Which is better out of the 2 and why? Both have key differences and some may or may not like the depending on what differences they prefer. Main differences I can think of are these:
- Galaxy s is thinner while the Epic has the Qwerty slider
- Epic has a flash for the camera and Wimax connectivity
- Software wise, the Epic is missing a lot of features of touch wiz. There are more differences like design of the phones, theirf networks, etc. But I don't have time to list them all right now.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Showing Wrong Memory On Internal And External Sd Card

Sep 14, 2010

Prior to installing the external card - the folders app showed /sd. Which I assumed was the internal one. Then I insert the external one, reboot the phone, and tehre is no additional directory in the folder view. Why is this? Secondly, its a 16GB card. Its reported as 14.58GB. The format option is greyed out. Is it automatically mounted at power on? Ideally I want to know where I install things to know that they are on the external card.

Samsung Galaxy S :: GT-i9000 At&t Service Disconnects Often

Oct 30, 2010

I recently bought an unlocked international version of samsung galaxy S GT-i9000. I was able to use it with at&t sim card quite happily till now. Even the 3g worked on it. But from yesterday the at&t service keeps disconnecting after using for few hours. The network bars at the top right disappear and a blue disconnected sign appears. I cannot make a call or receive a call till I reboot my phone. In settings->about phone I see that the "Service" shows "Not in Service". When I reboot it gets back to "In Service". My unlocked phone boots with T-mobile preset settings - is this problem because of that?

Android :: SQLite Is Extremely Slow In Samsung Galaxy GT-I9000

Aug 17, 2010

I am having problem with performance of SQLite database in Android application in Samsung Galaxy GT-I9000 device. The database contains 10 tables with 3 - 8 columns each.

As soon as a database file gains about 400 KB update/instert queries need much more time to execute - 2 seconds! In comparision to other devices (HTC Magic, HTC Desire) update/insert queries take about 40 msec !

The database file is located in application data directory. Moving database file to sd card increases the speed significantly.

Periodic ANALYZE and VACUUM commands do not affect the speed. As well as PRAGMA cache_size command.

Do you have any ideas how to improve the performance? for keeping the database in sd card or splitting the database into many files containing one table each.

Samsung Epic 4G :: Mounting Phone With Pc And SD Card

Nov 15, 2010

I have been mounting my phone with my pc for quite awhile, then one day, it decided to be difficult. At first it took a couple, replugs to get it to recognize the SD card. Then, It stopped recognizing it at all. Depending on what USB port I use, I get different results from I/O error, to device not recognized.

Things I have tried:
-Every driver known to mankind.
-Plugging in every single usb port on the computer (including mobo)
-Disconnecting every usb device except for the phone
-Formatting the SD card (lost my photos forgot they were on there)
-Only used STOCK cable.

I'm out of ideas, and sprint claims this is not a problem with the phone on all the forum posts I've seen with similar problems. Has anyone actually found a solution for this other than thinking plugging it in the back of the computer actually fixes anything?

Samsung Galaxy I7500 :: Can't Copy Files To Internal Memory

Aug 15, 2010

Im on Galaxo 1.6.3.3 and have been facing this strange problem since a couple of days. Whenever I mount my internal 8 GB memory and try to copy files into it, the internal memory card automatically un-mounts by itself after a couple of seconds interrupting the file transfer.

This happens almost all the time.

I don't have any such issues with the external SD card.

Should reformatting the internal memory help?
Also, If I reformat the internal memory...I dont think the OS should be affected. I suppose the internal memory is just like a movable drive...with no OS files on it.

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?

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?

HTC Incredible :: Trouble Mounting Internal Phone Storage And Sd Storage

Aug 22, 2010

For some reason my Incredible won't mount both the internal phone storage and the SD card storage at the same time. What I mean is...when I plug my phone into my PC I only get a single popup asking to mount the phone's SD card storage, but not the internal phone storage.If I remove the SD card (or unmount the SD card using menus on the phone) and then toggle the connection type from Disk Drive, to Charge only, and then back to Disk Drive (to burp the connection), the internal phone storage will mount, but the SD card won't mount because it has been removed.When I connect my wife's incredible, my computer sees both the SD card storage and the internal storage (as expected) and gives me prompts for both. I took the SD card from the problematic phone and put it in the "good" phone and there are no issues at all (IE.. both the internal storage and SD storage mount). This of course means there is no issue with the SD card.

HTC EVO 4G :: Mounting SD Card Via USB NOW Slow?

Sep 19, 2010

Didn't have a problem with this before on my EVO and can't recall any settings I might have changed to cause this problem but when I choose the "Disk Drive" connection for "Connect to PC" it takes a long while (minute or so) for the drive to mount. I have the default connection to "Charge Only" but when connected to my computer and I choose the "Disk Drive" option the mount is SLOW. It SEEMS to get a bit quicker if I RE-choose "Charge Only" and then go back to "Disk Drive" to mount the SD card, however, like I said above, it is MUCH SLOWER than before. I used to choose the Disk Drive option and the mount would occur RIGHT AWAY. But not it is slow.

I have installed various apps over the weeks but only recently experienced this slowness. I recall some information about USB debugging conflicting with the SD mount but that option is turned OFF on my phone. Anyone know of any apps that might be known to conflict with the SD mount?

Android :: New Method For Mounting SD Card

Nov 10, 2008

Not sure if it happened with the RC29 or RC30 update but they removed the setting option to "Allow File Browsing on Computer"(or something like that) from the SD Card Settings menu. I just got both updates pretty close together and I couldn't figure out why the phone wasn't showing as a Removable Disk in My Computer.Well, now when you connect the phone you will see a USB icon show up in your notifications bar. You have to select that and choose to "Mount" the phone/card. Done.Still not sure if I like the new way. Seems like unnecessary extra clicks to have to choose this option each time you connect the phone. What do you guys think?

My memory is full now, and without android 2.2 I can't move apps to the SD card. They should have provided all of their galaxy class phones with the 8GB internal memory.

Motorola Droid :: Inconsistent Sd Card Mounting Via Usb

Jun 9, 2010

I have the latest Motorola drivers on two different laptops, but sometimes my SD fails to mount on the PC when I plug it into the USB. I am able to mount most of the time and do normal file operations, no problem. But sometimes I go into failure mode where no matter what I try the SD won't mount. I try rebooting the phone and laptop, trying my other laptop, uninstalling an app I suspect is causing a problem, but probably isn't, etc. Then, sometime later, for no apparent reason, I'll plug the phone into the laptop and suddenly it's working again. I see threads about SD mounting difficulties, but none that address an intermittent problem like I'm having. Any ideas about diagnostics, fixes, or preventive measures?

When it fails to mount, the symptom is that with many attempts, the phone will make the mounting sound repeatedly, but never mounts. Other times, it makes the sound once, as if it succeeded, but it doesn't mount. I've checked the log with aLogcat, but I see nothing that I can tell might be informative, but then I'm not an expert with that stuff.

I must say, the error is really vexing. Mounting works well enough to use the SD card for transferring files, but then just when you need it (to transfer something back) it fails.
