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 :: Any Way To Access Internal Storage?

Nov 29, 2010

Most of the applications on my phone are stored on the internal storage. I cannot figure out how to access the internal storage to manage these applications. I may need to reset my phone, but I don't want to lose my paid applications.

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.

Samsung Moment :: Phone Loosing Internal Storage At Alarming Rate

Mar 21, 2010

My moment seems to be losing internal storage at alarming rate. Only have about 35 apps installed which only took me from 198mb to 155 or so. Now I am at 120. I barely use the phone except for making a few calls/texts and browsing the web. Happens mainly when plugged into my laptop or whenever I update my applications.

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 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.

HTC Incredible :: Internal Phone Storage

Sep 28, 2010

So, one of the selling points of this phone is the large amount of internal storage. any ROMs out there that actually recognize my large amount of internal storage?? I would rather have 512MB like a droid and get a 16GB card with it honestly. If stock froyo wasn't slow as hell I would just use that but alas, I need my speed.

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

HTC EVO 4G :: Is 250MB Available Space Enough For Internal Phone Storage?

Jun 13, 2010

I installed a bunch of apps and I think the EVO has 1gb of space. Just wondering if that's enough available for me to do other things. I want to leave a "buffer" just in case. I'm currently using the Sandisk 8GB MicroSD Class 2 that came with the phone and when I was looking at selling my Touch Pro 2, it turns out that I have a Class 6 Transcend 8gb MicroSD card. I want to switch them out, if I just copy everything from the Sandisk to the Transcend, will that be ok? Or do apps/Android write the data a certain way that I'll have to re-do things again?

HTC Droid Eris :: Internal Phone Storage With 2.1

May 17, 2010

I was wondering what people have for Available space in Internal Phone Storage. I believe that has to do mainly with how many apps you have installed, although sometimes (since updating the other day) the number seems to change when I don't delete or download a new app. Maybe I'm going crazy. Anyway, my available space is 53.61MB

HTC Desire :: Internal Phone Storage Running Very Low

Apr 19, 2010

I have a major issue with my Desire. I've been keeping an eye on the amount of Internal Phone Storage space I have left as it's running very low and I've noticed that if I install an application and then uninstall it not all of the space is freed up. I've tried rebooting and that does not help. I don't want to go down the path of do a factory reset and restoring my apps but I can't think of any other way round it. Does anyone know which folder on the phone applications are installed to? I've found the system apps in /system/app but I'd like to check to see if there's anything left behind from applications that I've uninstalled as a last resort.

General :: Phone Not Using Internal Storage For Camera?

Feb 25, 2012

i have purchased the following phone as a present for someone (but from a different shop/site): MTK6516 K600A Android 2.2 OS Smart Phone TV WiFi 3.2 Inch Touch Screen Cellphone - Black

i'm not sure you will give support for such cheep phones, but i'm having a bit of a trouble with it... everything is working fine except the camera, video, sound recording and other features which require data storage. there are such types of error messages:

"please insert an sd card before using the camera" "your phone does not have an SD card inserted"

it does not come with an SD card and i haven't installed one yet, so when i go to "settings -> sd card and phone storage" it only shows the available "internal phone storage = 50MB"

is there a way to use/enable the internal phone storage for lets say - record some audio or make a couple of photos, instead of the non-existent SD card or does it really need one installed ?

it has 256MB RAM / 256MB ROM by specification.

General :: Browsing Phone Internal Storage Through ADB?

Jul 5, 2013

I was reading the Apps and Games section searching how to retrieve one of my games' save data, and I found it's probably on

/data/data/com.square_enix.android_googleplay.FFIII_GP

However I cannot access it normally, it's phone's internal memory. After few more searches, I came to a little idea: maybe using adb.

Then the question is, can I use adb to browse my device's internal and external storages, just like I browse through my PC using command line? (In my case I use Linux, so my terminal is Bash).

Can I copy from internal storage and write on it without root using adb? I don't want to root my device for a series of reasons...
