Camera Storage location was changed & not by me!


Friday 14th of September 2012 / androidforums.com
I had set it to store in the large 32 GB SD card soon after I got the phone & as recently as August had taken some photos & they were there as expected. Today I took 4 photos & they appeared as expected in my gallery but when I attempted to transfer to my computer via USB, they were not in the SD card DCIM/Camera folder with all the other photos! I finally found them in the Internal Storage/DCIM/Camera folder. Anyone else have their storage location mysteriously changed?Here is how to manually move the files from Int. Storage to Ext. Storage SD card & then switch the storage location back to SD card.To move files between internal and external storage:.Open the applications menu..Scroll to and tap My Files to open the file manager.Tap Internal phone storage.Scroll to the folder or file location to your desired file.Tap and hold the file, then choose Copy or Move.Press the back key and Tap the SD card.Scroll to the folder or file location where you want to place your desired file.Tap Move.Your file has been placed into your other storage locationHow to change camera sto

internal storage - How to view the files on mntsdcard on PC and how to set default download and save location


Thursday 06th of September 2012 / android.stackexchange.com
The directory mntsdcard is the location where all the downloads and the received files are saved, however this file cannot be located on the PC if connected using USB Cable. Moreover, it seems that this file is on the Phone's Internal Memory and not in the Memory card

How do I move data from SD card to internal storage?


Saturday 02nd of June 2012 / forums.androidcentral.com
I have a couple apps... Livo Recording Pro and ACast which can't access the files of the SDcard I removed from my old EVO 4G after it died... Figured I'd just bring the EVO lte up in my laptop and I'd see two disks and move the data over to internal storage so Livo could see all the song ideas I'd created in my good ole' EVO. Same for ACast... figured moving the folder over and I'd be set! ARRRG! When I "mount as hard drive" I only see the sdcard on my laptop... don't see the internal storage, where the new livo is looking for the data... how do I access both storage locations to move things around? As EVO lte is the first with two storage locations, apps don't give an option to point to one or the other for the location they're storing data... I imagine this is the problem and it would be easy to fix... Hope my question isn't too dumb... but also, hope for an answer... BTW, I'M ABSOLUTELY IN LOVE WITH THIS PHONE!!!! FRACKIN' AWESOME!!!

Storage Location?


Tuesday 22nd of November 2011 / androidforums.com
So I noticed that under Storage there are 3 sections - Application storage, Internal storage, and SD card. Then there is the final option at the bottom for Windows Media Sync. Looking over these sections, I realized that even after downloading multiple applications that are quite large (20MB-50MB each) this has not even touched the amount of storage space on my SD card. This lead me to believe that my applications, downloads, etc. are not actually being stored on the SD card (shows 14.80/14.81GB available). When you go to Manage Applications and check an application, some allow you to send it to the Media Storage on the phone. However, I thought this meant it was being stored on the SD card, but it's not. Does anyone happen to know how to set the phone to store applications, downloads, etc. to the SD card instead of the internal media storage?

Save image/video thumbnails to external storage card


Tuesday 04th of February 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
How can I save image/video thumbnails to external storage on my android device? Although the image directory of my galaxy s3 device was set to storage/exSdCard/DCIM/.thumbnails it seems that image and video thumbnails are saved to storage/sdcard0/DCIM/.thumbnails by default. The images and videos are saved to proper location but their thumbnails are always saved to the system generated default location of internal storage card. The problem wasn't solved even after I moved the camera from system->app to data->app and DCIM folder from internal storage sdcard0 to external storage exSdCard. Any idea or resolution? Thanks,

how to set sd card as location for files. Xperia Z2


Wednesday 07th of January 2015 / forums.androidcentral.com
I want to set the sd card as the location for a Navionics app that needs a lot of data. I cant find the option to set the file location for any of the apps in settings-apps. In settings-storage it has the option to transfer media to the sd card but that's all. I have a couple of file manager apps but cant figurenout how to do it on those either. Any advice welcome!
