Ringtones Saved From Audio Files In Sd Card Disappear After Reboot

I'm having a problem creating ringtones from files saved to the sd card. I have succeeded in getting the information to be written to the mediastore database, and the files do show up in settings -> sound & display -> phone ringtone. However, as soon as i reboot the phone, the files disappear from the list of ringtones.

The only clue i have is that the database in /data/data/ Providers. Media/databases/external-. Db is getting its rows deleted on startup. The files themselves are not changing. Even stranger is that, if i simply copy the file from the sd card to the files/ directory of the internal storage directory for my app, and then save that file as the ringtone, it works!  However, it doesn't really seem feasible to me to force the user to keep two copies of the audio file.

I do have a . Nomedia file in the audio files directory (to avoid the files showing up in the music app), but i have tested this with and without the . Nomedia file and the same problem occurs.

Below is my code for creating the ringtone/notification. The users of my app would be really grateful if i figured this out.

Cannot View Saved Image Until Reboot / Fix It

I am saving an image taken by the camera to a unique folder on the sdcard. The image saves fine, but i cannot view it in the gallery. I can see it in the file system, but i cannot view the image in the gallery app until i reboot the phone or mount the sdcard, and then umount.

Here's the code.

As i said, the file is saved fine, i can see it in the fs, and i can view it after the card has been umounted/mounted or rebooted. Is it an issue that i'm not correctly closing the file?I don't think that's it, but i'm not sure why i can't view the image. I believe i tried saving the file using getcontentresolver(). Insert() and didn't have this issue, but i want to save the images to a specific folder that i create.

Issue: Apps Disappear From Sd Card, After I Factory Reset The Phone

Moved apps to sd card, did master reset, where did my apps go? I moved all my apps to my sd card by using my phone. I backed up all of my pictures and everything, and then did a factory reset on my phone. I plugged in my sd card expecting to see all of my apps that i had moved to my sd card (about 15 of them) and i can't find them anywhere. Anybody have any ideas? Of course, i can download all of my apps again, but some were paid apps, some from the amazon appstore. I have searched everything that i can think of, and haven't found any sort of answer. My phone is not rooted either.

Samsung Fascinate - How To Tell If Apps Are Saved On Sd Card Or On Internal Drive

I know these questions are really elementary, but:

1. In my task manager, it shows for ram 214 mb/325mb. Why is so much memory already used when i have so little extra on the phone? Does the pre-loaded stuff and os take up that much space?Confession: i have only downloaded 4 apps so far (google maps, handcent, swiftkey, smart keyboard pro) and 1 widget (digital clock widget) plus i have 4 ringtones and 1 song. Obviously, i am not a superuser.

2. How can i tell if my apps are saved on my sd card or on my internal drive?

3. If on my internal drive, how do i move them to the sd card?

Killi Process With Files On Sd Card

I found that android kills my app process that has files open on sd card when the card is mounted when the device connects to a computer. It is done without any notification, i see in the log something like killprocesswithfilesopenedoncard message, my app receives no notification, has no chance to gracefully shutdown. Moreover android restarts my app immediately after killing it with latest activity not the default activity launched in default standard mode. It does it while the card is still mounted and device is still connected to a computer.

Can someone explain this all to me, how it i supposed to work, and if there is any way to alter this weird rude behavior? Particularly, if there is way to get any notification before the process is killed by the os and to prevent relaunching it while the card is still mounted?

Installing Apps, Games Files Into External Sd Card On Samsung Galaxy S2

I have a samsung galaxy s2 i9100g, along with sony xperia neo and htc desire z. After searching extensively throughout the internet and, i needed to post this thread.

On my xperia neo, which has no "internal storage" unlike the sgs2, apps/games can install completely on its "external sd storage". The same is applied to the desire z.

On the sgs2 however, the app/game is present on the "internal sd storage". (11gb out of 16gb). It only move 1% in reality to the "external sd" that too into the secandroid folder.

What i want to ask is that apps such as "sygic", "gta 3", "asphalt", "nova" etc have considerable size of files and while the sgs2 has 11gb available they install into the "internal sd" but in xperia neo, which has about 200mb of "internal phone memory" and no "internal sd storage", these apps/games install their bulk files into the "external sd storage" which is shown as "sd storage".

Please help me and tell me how i can makes these apps/games install their files into the "external sd card". Since "asphalt 6" is about 900mb and on sgs2 it is on the 11gb "internal sd" while on the xperia it is on the "external sd" which is mounted as the "sd card". I am waiting for your helpful replies and advises.

Static Variables Can't Be Saved In Onsaveinstancestate / What To Do

Consider following code, it saves static variable: mmyarray in onsaveinstancestate and restore it in onrestoreinstancestate, however i found it can't save the int array at all. I tried primative type value (int), it can save/restore primative type value.code.

Activity Saved State Not Always Working / What's Going On

I've got a textview which keeps losing it's previous value between intent invocations. If i enter some text, hit the home button then relaunch the app the text is restored as expected. If i change orientation, oncreate fires and again text is restored as expected. However if i navigate elsewhere in the app via menu option then navigate back to the original screen via the menu, oncreate receives null for the incoming bundle and my textview loses state. I can see onsaveinstancestate being called before navigating away so i'm scratching my head as to what's going on.

Menu option is firing an intent like so code.
