open files from external sd

Post by kalgan » Sat May 10, 2014 7:04 pm

Hi guys!

I'm on a kitkat rom on my note II. Since I flashed this rom, my planmaker cannot see the external sd card of my phone. When I want to open a file, I see "External Storage 1 /mnt/sdcard" in the file browser, but if I choose that, it opens the internal sd, not the external. I have the same problem with textmaker.. Having the files on the internal sd is not a solution for me, 'cos I need to sync my files with my computer's hdd, and that cannot be done with anywaysync...

any ideas?

In newer Adroid versions Google has crippled the access of third party apps to the external SD card. There is unfortunately not much we can do here. You could work with an older Android version to avoid that issue or use Google search to try to find another workaround (Please note that we haven't tested it yet):

Hi,

Thx for your reply. Unfortunetly neither of the workarounds worked for me. I dont think it's the problem of the rom only, cos' there are apps that handle external sd the right way (e.g. coolreader). I suppose the developers should do something with their product to make useable on newest roms...
