I noticed that my audio / video players can't see the songs / movies I've copied to the tablet, even though I've made sure they are on the tablet. I can't even find the folders those files are inside with the explorer or the root explorer. Does this have to do with Froyo or am I perhaps missing some Apps?
I'm not sure but the file system has changed going from eclair to froyo/gingerbread (2.3) and will further change towards honeycomb (3.0).
The internal memory and the sdcard have different folder names assigned in Froyo/gingerbread.
2.1 and earlier:
/flash was internal memory
/sdcard was a soft link (shortcut) to /flash
/sdcard/sdcard was the sdcard
/mnt/sdcard is internal memory
/mnt/sdcard/external_sd is sdcard
/flash is a soft link (shortcut) to /mnt/sdcard
/sdcard is a soft link (shortcut) to /mnt/sdcard/external_sd
I've seen already quite a few programs getting "confused" by this.
I assume that:
- either a lot of programs are Froyo compatible but miss the full 100% compatibility
- The original rom/kernel/binaries builder of this 2.2 rom (some manufacturer) is not completely used to the new structure and has perhaps some hard coded paths in the applications, or forget the ending slash when dealing with "soft linked" folders (ls /sdcard versus ls /sdcard/). It's a common error in unix/linux/bsd programs.
