Hi my question is on the xoom is I got it becausethere is


Saturday 04th of February 2012 / justanswer.com
Hi my question is on the xoom is I got it becausethere is an SD card slot for external memory. I also downloaded an app to manage my apps so I can download some apps to my SD card to save on internal memory. But when I try to transfer apps that can be moved or stored on my SD card I get this message..( The device does not have a real primary external storage or the primary external storage is emulated,Moving app to SD card may not be sopported by this device). Does the xoom not have the function for moving apps to SD card? But it has an SD card slot?Already Tried: I thought I could just transfer apps that where able to be, but I don't seem to see how to so I download an app that would let me know which apps could be tranfered when I download them but when I try to I get the message that it may not be a real external storage or it is emulated so would like to know what emulated meant and how do transfer apps to SD card that can be tranfered?

Problem found by anti virus Avast, Any idea what it is?


Tuesday 09th of April 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
So recently my anti virus app has found 1 problem found. it's from /storage/emulated/0/60822af8...etc. I don't think I've downloaded anything suspicious recently. Does anyone know what it is? And if it's cause for alarm? And I should point out that when I was in chrome, the tab was that name too, the /storage/emulated thing. So I'm thinking if it's a chrome update that did this, but I'd like a confirmation from others. It came up on both my Nexus 7 tablet and my Galaxy nexus phone. Screenshot:

Another sdcard/0 problem


Wednesday 27th of March 2013 / androidforums.com
I tried to follow all of this. Really I did. But I got kinda lost while looking at my own files. I have in my storage folder an emulated folder and a sdcard/0 -> legacy folder and a usbdisk folder. When I clock on the storage folder it opens to show a storage/emulated/0 and a storage/emulated/legacy folder.The storage/emulated/0 folder has all of my files in it.The storage/emulated/legacy folder has all of my files in it!Backing up and opening /storage/sdcard0 I find all of my files again.USBDISK is empty. So, what do I delete and what do I keep? I am thinking that I should delete the emulated folder and everything in it but that scares the bejezus out of me!Nandroid backups are being saved in my emulated folder so I can't even keep a safety net.

error: SD Card is blank or contains unsupported files


Wednesday 12th of June 2013 / androidforums.com
I have an error message that reads; "SD card is blank or contains unsupported files". I removed the back of my phone and found the SD card out and just laying there.When I click on that message prompt it is asking me to format the sd card.I am assuming now that every picture and video is now stored on the phones memory which is not where I want it to be stored. I go to apps/my files and the path is /storage/emulated/0.Does that path mean these are stored on my phone? I lost my home pc this week also so until it is fixed I cannot load my sd card onto my pc to see what if anything is on it.Can I move all those pics from my phone memory to the sd card? If so just do it through my home pc when I fix it? Or can I move them via the phone?I want to save the files I already set up if possible and just get everything pointing back to the sd card without a bunch of hassle. Also, was I supposed to format the SD card when I first put it into the phone?Thanks for any help.

What is the 'emulator' storage option?


Sunday 25th of August 2013 / androidforums.com
I have an app called 'Call recorder pro' on my Galaxy S3.One of the options it gives you is where you want to store call recordings and one of the options apart from the SD card is 'emulated'.What is this?

Ringtones/Notification Sounds


Monday 23rd of September 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
I don't see how to access any pre-installed sounds. In Calendar or Contacts when I try to assign a sound/ringtone, I get "Choose path" and it points to /storage/emulated/0/Ringtones, where I had copied in some sounds of my own. I must have tried to assign custom tones earlier to find out what path it was looking at, then dumped my own files there. But where is the default sound? The chooser won't let me navigate out of /storage/emulated.

Nexus 5 Storage


Wednesday 13th of November 2013 / androidforums.com
Hi, so after some very irritating years with a Galaxy Q, and HTC Desire C, I decided that I'd upgrade my phone, and chose the brand new N5. Batterywise, it isn't great but much better than my previous device. Sadly, there is no SD slot, and I went with the 16 GB option. I noticed in my file explorer (storage/emulated) that there are two folders; "0" and "legacy" and they are identical. This limits my space. What do I do? Thanks!

Internal Storage/Ext Storage duplicate files?


Monday 02nd of December 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
I've been into the basics of rooting and custom ROMs for a few years, but I've never really come across a post about this... I recently installed the newest Gummy ROM on my S4 to get a taste for KitKat and came across an issue with the camera app not immediately saving recently snapped photos to the gallery. It gives a quick preview of the photo, but if you swipe right to the gallery, the pictures aren't there until you close and reopen the app. I took a look around the system folders w Root Browser and really had trouble understanding what the OS was doing with these photos! Multiple questions have arisen, so here we go... Why am I seeing my photos (visible from the gallery app) in multiple places on my internal phone storage and SD card?Gallery looks like this: System folders view (this is the highest level on the file tree that I can view from this app): I'm seeing the same photos in "/storage/emulated/0/DCIM/Camera/", as well as "/sdcard/DCIM/Camera/." All of these photos were taken on my previous ROM (CM10.1.3) and the newest photos i've taken on Gummy ar

What is /storage/emulated ?


Saturday 14th of December 2013 / androidtablets.net
I presume it's some kind of new memory scheme? I'm referring to my Nexus 7/13 of course, with Android 4.4.2Specifically, you have:/storage/emulated/0 and/storage/emulated/sdcard0But it's also redundant, because you also have:/sdcardWhich is like the older Android OS.Can anyone put a little clarity to this mess?thx
