Confusion - ext_card and sd_card

I am slightly confused.

My ASTRO view on ext_card and sd_card is different when viewed on a pc.

Some directories within ext_card, as viewed on my phone's ASTRO viewer are OK. But when viewed in my pc, they are not available on it. Instead, they are inside sd_card.

Does anyone have this same scenario?

Hi eljunpacomios! Grinning Face

I don't think you should use Astro cause it's a pretty messed up file explorer and it also has advertising in the app too...

I recommend you use ES File Explorer instead, with a customisable background and a Windows familiar interface... Ads are not available (unless you go into it's Suggestion App section)! XD

For the PC however, my XPERIA sola shows two directory instead...

1. Portable Device (XPERIA sola)

-Internal Memory (Disk)

--Folders

2. Removable Disk (SD card)

-Folders

Re: Confusion - ext_card and sd_card

Well, I think i should uninstall astro then. I think the old version was bad. I updated astro's new version and you are right Trubo_XL, It worked well, BUT there is an advertisement (that consumes around 15% of the entire screen)

I am now trying ES File Explorer. It's great.

Kudos to Trubo_XL.

I don't think I have this problem. :/

You might try to use another File Explorer.

About which files are you talking about?

Re: Confusion - ext_card and sd_card

Well, it's just that what appears in phone using astro (old version) is not what it looks like when connected to a PC. Please see below illustration

ASTRO displays ..

/sd_card/

dir1

dir2

dir3

/ext_card/

dir4

dir5

dir6

Windows Explorer (when connected to PC)

/sd_card/

dir1

dir2

dir3

dir5

dir6

/ext_card/

dir4

This problem occurred when I copied and pasted folders from my /sd_card/ to my /ext_card/ to save space. But that is what happened. Bad on you ASTRO.
