Samsung Vibrant :: Can Not Access From PC The SD Or Internal Flash Storage

Jul 20, 2010

Initially all worked OK. But then after some installs from the Market i am not able to access any internal flash storages. Phone was not rooted.

Here are some facts:

- i see the drive letters assigned for both of them on PC but when you click Explore the message is "Please insert a disk into drive M: (or N or whatever)".
- They are shown as mounted on the phone . Dismount and mount again changes nothing
- the phone is recording photos/videos OK on internal memory means flash is working fine.
- SD card is perfectly working too. if you extract it and put into computer you can read/write it. On the cell you can play music from it etc no problems
- I restored everything with Factory Data Reset but things did not change
- Same story from another PC
- Samsung Kies shows the files in PC Windows Media Player which are on Vibrant's SD card but can not read/download them

Is this some driver problem ? Or flash memory is locked by Vibrant OS?

I suspect EasyTether or PDANet third party driver for Samsung phones is responsible.
Tethering works though

General :: Can't Access Internal SD Storage?

Nov 9, 2013

So the other day I was trying Cyanogenmod 9 on my galaxy pocket, however I didnt realize it wasn't an official release and it was REALLY bugged and I made a huge mistake because i forgot to install CWM. Thing is installed this rom and I belive i pretty much bricked my phone because now I can't get access to any of my networks, wi-fi, bluetooth, or usb mass storage or my sd card are not being recognized either...

What I've tried so far was sending the stock rom through Quick ADB Pusher, but it tells me that even though my phone appears to be root It wont allow it to access, then I tried different ways to root and unroot because apparently SU is not giving me the permissions. So finally tried my last option with ADB and was trying an adb push but I keep getting permision denied if I send it to /root or read only file if I send it to /system also tried Asb shell $su but I keep getting a denied message.

Android :: Application Access Permission To Files On Internal Storage

Jun 30, 2010

A question about the internal storage that's private to each application (especially when storing files with Context.MODE_PRIVATE).

How is that storage actually assigned to the application? Just by package name or also somehow bound to the sign key of the app?

Let's say I have installed application 1 and then write another application 2 with the same name and package name (just differently signed with different keys) and install it (app 2 replacing app 1), would that application 2 get access to the /data/data/[app]/files ?

Or would I not even be able to replace app1 with app2 due to different sign keys in the first place?

Samsung EPIC 4G :: Low Internal Storage Available Space?

Aug 31, 2010

I have not installed anything, not even an OTA update (except PRL update) and this is what it says for SD card and Internal Storage space. It comes with 1GB internal storage, so the base OS and TouchWiz used over half of the internal storage already along with over 1GB of the sd card?

sd card total space: 14.73GB
sd card available space: 14.73GB
internal storage available space: 465MB

Samsung Fascinate :: Internal Storage At 0 And I Can't Seem To Wipe It / How To Do This

Nov 11, 2010

Here is the situation, I rooted my phone a few weeks ago but didn't do anything beyond that. Installed a few apps like titanium backup and ROM manager.

I finally decided to try out a new ROM. Unfortunately I choose a voodoo rom without really understanding what I was doing. I ended up with some issues of everything force shutting down as soon as the phone started. So I downloaded all of the factory default files and used ODIN to flash everything back to stock. (System, recovery, and kernel tar files.)

While that seems to have worked, my internal phone storage claims to be zero. I have tried cleaning the cache through the settings->applications but while it seems to work, it still says zero.

I added the voodoo disable folder to the voodoo directory on the SD card but that didn't seem to change anything. I then read somewhere that I should be able to delete the entire voodoo directory after I flashed back to stock, so I did. Same issue.

I've tried the privacy->reset all data, but that fails. It's hard to read, but I think it says something about not being able to mount something and "data wipe failed".

I've put over CWMrecovery.rar in Odin and tried to use the wipe data option in it, but anything I choose after the initial update.zip file results in a blank screen. (Pressing the home key backs it out to the menu.)

adb still works, but I've lost root, so there isn't much I can do. I've tried re-rooting, but as soon as the phone reboots, the files I pushed over disappear. Almost as if it is stuck in a factory restore loop or something. I even have to go through the startup wizard everytime the phone reboots and I loose the gmail account that I have setup each time.

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 :: 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.

General :: 2 Small Internal Storage - How To Swap SD To Be Main Phone Storage?

Aug 23, 2013

I've bought this chinese clone of the SIII, it's a MT6575. It's great except for the internal storage, which supposedly is 500MB but there seems to be an invisible SD storage which is 2GB. It's really confusing... When I go to Settings -> Storage there are 3 memories: "Internal Storage" (claims to be 4GB but it's fake, it's actually 500MB), "Phone Storage" (claims to be 16.5GB but it's probably 2GB), and finally my SD, "SD Card" (32GB).

The thing is, I'm having problems downloading big apps because apps go to "Internal Storage" which is 500MB only, and which files are stored in the "Phone Storage" (maybe internal & phone are actually the same?). However when I go to Settings -> Apps, on the "Downloaded" tab, the apps are in "Internal Storage" (500MB), and on the "On SD Card" tab, it shows that apps are in "Phone Storage" (the ones I moved to SD). This means my 32GB SD isn't being used by the system when I send apps to SD probably.

Also, my 32GB SD card is found in /mnt/sdcard2, and the /mnt/sdcard... I don't know which storage is that.

So basically all this is happening because I tried to Link2SD with my 32GB SD doing all the 2 partitions stuff and so, but Link2SD never detects the "secondary SD" which is the 32GB SD, as this fake SD card, "Phone Storage", is probably what the programs thinks to be the SD card.

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.

Jelly Bean :: Does Extending Internal Storage From Phone Storage Possible

Nov 19, 2013

I bought my new phablet that was powered by 4.1

im shocked with how the manufacturer of my device(cherry mobile) designated their storage. the phone storage is 2gb and internal is 500 mb.

it is not a problem if i could write apps on phone storage by default but even though the 'write to phone storage' is checked, when i downloaded an app, the internal storage still losses free space.

so is it possible to extend internal storage?

Samsung Epic 4G :: Low Storage Internal App Memory / Can't Move Apps To SD Card?

Oct 30, 2010

Is anyone else experiencing problems downloading and running apps from the market due to low memory issues? Why did they only put 512MB of internal memory for app storage on this Epic when the AT&T galaxy version got 8GB of internal memory in addition to the 16GB micro Sd card???

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.

General :: SGH-T589 Samsung Gravity Smart - Internal Storage Full?

Oct 16, 2013

why my Android's internal storage is full. I don't think I have anything on there except for the 18 stock apps I have (including apps like titanium backup, and Link2SD that came with my ROM). I've gotten rid of all the bloatware on the phone, deleted most of my cache, and moved all of my downloaded apps to the SD card. I've even gone as far as to replace the web browser with Opera mini (and put it on the SD card), and prevented the device from installing a 10 MB update for the google play store. Even though the phone only has 14 MB (138/152 MB), I would think that would be more than enough to receive text messages. The phone doesn't even want me to do that.

I do have a few thoughts as to what could be causing this problem. First off, even after I've deleted an app via titanium backup, the app still appears in titanium backup with a line through it. This leads me to believe that the app still has data left on the phone. Second, I'm thinking Link2SD isn't actually moving all of the app to the SD card. In that case, I guess I don't have any choice but to remove all of my extra apps.

I actually have one solution that may or may not work. If I could somehow make the device treat my extra (32 GB) SD card into thinking it's the phone's external storage, then I wouldn't have to worry about overloading it at all. Would this work flawlessly?

Here's some extra information that may or may not be useful.

Device Model: SGH-T589 - Samsung Gravity Smart

Samsung Vibrant :: Clockwork Isn't Recognizing Internal Data

Sep 30, 2010

I flashed bionix 1.3 onto my bell vibrant, and everything seemed okay except for two (Big) things... One of which I've seen other people having troubles with, the other seems completely unique to me.

A) I have no 3g connection at all to any data whatsoever

B, and this is the one I'm completely pissed off about) I have no USB connection available to me. Whenever I plug in my phone to any usb, be it my laptop or even the wall charger... It shuts down and goes into a sort of sleep mode where it flashes between an empty gray battery and the "busy, loading" ring... Over and over. I can't turn it back on until I unplug it. So I can't flash the stock back onto it with odin because it doesn't connect to odin for more than 4 seconds before going into sleepytime mode. This happens when it's on, when it's in recovery mode, or download mode. ANY time I plug anything into the usb.

Oh, and also my clockwork isn't recognizing my internal /data/ so it can't mount it.. Am I boned?
