SD Card Storage Confusion

1 post in this topic

I'm rather new at this rooting thing but so far everything does what it's supposed to do. The App Store works, google apps work, even got Netflix working. The only problem I really have is the rather confusing SD Card storage issue. A number of apps want to write to an SD card that I don't have mounted. I know, they're expecting a phone with an SD Card. But is there a way to mount a partition on the SD Card that will show up as SD Card to these apps? Nothing I've put on the SD card is ever recognized.

I started with a 1G card partitioned as follows:

boot 117m

other 313 m

other 549m

I created an image using WinImage and put it onto a 2G card:

boot 117m

other 313m

other 549m

unallocated 905m

Both cards boot and work fine. But when I look at Settings/Storage it shows "internal storage" as 500m with about 140m free. Is this the 549m "other" partition on the SD Card?

On the surface it looks like I could extend the 549m partition to suck up the rest of the space and it would show up as "internal storage", whatever that is supposed to be.

I haven't quite been able to figure out what, exactly, is mounted where. Still confused.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
