Android 101: Copy files to your storage card in Windows
Friday 05th of February 2010
For as easy as Android can make your life, the simple task of getting photos, video and music from your computer to your phone isn't quite as straightforward as it should be. We're going to put an end to that right now. After the break:How to get your storage card to show up on your computer. No rooting. No extra programs. Just a few simple steps.Let's get right to it. Using the cable that came with your phone, plug one end into your phone, and the other into an available USB port on your computer. If it's your first time connecting, Windows should automatically download a driver. With that out of the way, you're just a couple of taps away on your phone from bringing this one home. On your device, pull down your notification bar and tap on USBconnected. You'll then be asked if you want to "Mount" your SD card and copy files between your phone and computer. Choose "Mount." That's it. Your storage card should now appear as one of your options under "My computer" or however else you're used to navigating through Windows. In the example below, the storag

external sd - How can I copy files onto an SD card with a Honeycomb tablet?
Monday 21st of November 2011
It seems like copying a file onto the SD card ought to be easy, but for the life of me I can't figure out how to do it. I have an (International) Motorola Xoom Wifi running stock Moto Android 3.2.If I insert an SD card with content on it, I can see the contents of the card show up in the tablet's Gallery app. I can also go into the built-in Files app and browse the contents of the SD card. Using the Files app I can select files and copy them from the SD card to the internal storage.However when I browse the tablet's internal storage with the Files app and select and Copy a file, if I then navigate to the SD card the Paste Here option is grayed out.Using File Manager HD, I can't even find the SD card. It looks (from the Files app) like the SD card is at /mnt/external1/ but I can't see any way to get there. Is there something I'm missing in File Manager HD to find the SD card, or is there a deficiency in File Manager HD that another file manager could solve?Also strangely I can delete files from the SD card using the gallery app, but not using the Files file manager app!

[How To] Return To Gingerbread And S-on
Tuesday 21st of September 2010
Procedure last edited on 9/4/2012 (Thanks to sdrawkcab25 for help with various procedures herein) Due to major changes to the radios and bootloader since HTC Dev was introduced, this thread is now mostly applicable to those who went s-off back in the day and used the Unrevoked method to root and aquire s-off. Also, this is only written for those wanting to go back to full stock and s-on which is generally NOT recommended unless you are returning a phone and want no evidence of root activities. Note: Your SD card MUST be formatted to FAT32 before proceeding, if downgrading your radio for s-on and/or using option #1. The PB31IMG files will not be recognized otherwise. If you have yet to format, remember that formatting wipes the card. Be sure to copy/move your SD contents to a safe place (PC desktop) and replace after the formatting process. I will not go into the procedure in this thread as it is easily found with a Google search. 1.)

How to move info from one unrooted D2G to another D2G?
Monday 10th of September 2012
I'm in the process of switching from one D2G to another D2G, niether have been rooted. Correct me if there is a better way of doing this: I'm going to manually copy files from the SD Card to my desktop (to avoid loss of info.), then swap out the SD Card and SIM Card from the old D2G to the new D2G. Next, dial *228 to activate the new phone, run an update on the Android OS (v.2.2 to v.2.3.4), then download all the apps I had installed on the old phone. Should I activate and run the OS update before swaping the SD and SIM Cards?Although I had installed all my downloaded apps onto the SD Card on the old phone, they do not show up on the new phone. Once I re-install the apps and copy all the files from my desktop to the SD Card will all the apps have their saved info, such as game saves, and auto maintenance records? Also, will all the previous Profiles be restored, or do they need to be recreated? By the way, I'm switching phones because after running over the old phone I replaced the LCD screen (which took about 3 hours), and now has a dead touch zone on the screen, and the mic only wo

How to play/stream music from network share to Android device?
Sunday 11th of August 2013
I've got a Polaroid tablet that can connect to and browse a network-shared drive on a windows PC. I can copy individual audio files (mp3, flac, etc) and entire folders from the network share to the sd card on the tablet and play those files from the SD card. I can click on and view jpg files on the network share without needing to copy them to the SD card. However, I have yet to find an audio player (not the native sound player, VLC, etc) that can play the audio files (ie - stream them) from the network share. I get some sort of message that it's trying to connect to "127.0.0.1". I've used a HOSTS file editor and tried to make link between 127.0.0.1 and the local LAN IP of the windows machine, but that doesn't work either.From doing some internet searches I get the idea that Android is somehow handicapped (on purpose?) from being able to stream audio (and video?) files from network shares. Is this true?Is there an easy way to fix this? Is there a free app on the android marketplace (which my tablet has access to) that can play music files from network shares?My tablet detai
