    /sdcard and /mnt/sdcard not pointing to sdcard at all

    Hi, I found out /sdcard and /mnt/sdcard is not pointing to the sd card but /Removable/MicroSD is. I'd like all of them to point to the sd card if possible.

    I want my music and podcasts to be stored in the sd card, not in the internal storage.

    Welcome to the forum. The internal storage is lableled /mnt/sdcard/ (confusing, yes, but that is the way it is)

    You can move your podcasts, music or anything else to the /Removable/microSD/ using the file manager. I believe the "Listen" app is good for podcasts and can see the microSD card to play them. The stock Music app is good for playing the music. Listen is one of the few podcast apps that will continue to run in the background if you go to do something else on your TF.

    Try this out and see if it works.

    I see, thanks.

    I guess the problem then is if the app doesn't allow you to specify a custom filepath for its downloads. I can move them fine, but if the app will just keep on storing new files in /mnt/sdcard/...

    I'm using Acast for podcasts. Thankfully I can specify a different directory for downloads.

    I use Winamp for music (for the wireless sync), I haven't gotten it to work yet. I'm still downloading the PC drivers for the Transformer.

    Unfortunately, because HC is still in its infancy, many app developers have not enabled a way to change the default file path and cannot access the external media from apps. This is something that will hopefully be addressed in ICS when it unifies phones and tablets on the same version of the OS.

    Got the same problem with some music apps which didn't recognize the Removable Micro SD. HC ise new as Frederuco says, and most apps are not realizing that the internal SD and the Removable one are not the same.

    What's interesting is that older apps like Music Folder (Simple one) will auto see your Removable and even link it's default directory there, while most recent apps won't even see that you have a removable SD.

    Just give it some time dude, and try to fix this with alternative apps that may do the job, until more suitable ones become compatible with HC.
