 When the phone is plugged in to your computer, open the USB notification
(drag down the status bar, select "USB connected"), then choose "mount".

 I should add: while the sd card is mounted on your computer, it won't be
accessible to the phone, so it's probably not really going to be more any
more convenient than using adb push/pull.

Accessing sdcard filesystem through dev machine filesystem - possible?

by Raphael » Sun, 10 May 2009 14:20:52 GMT

 The original post is about an sdcard image, so I guess this is
emulator related. An emulator sdcard is a FAT32 filesystem so you
should be able to mount it using mount under linux if you have a fat32
support module. Under Windows or Mac there are probably ways to do
that too.

As Marco said you can't access the sdcard image or device from 2
different locations, e.g. emulator and host can't access it at the
same time, unless you want to corrupt it. There's no mount/umount UI
in the emulator so you'd have to quit it and restart it. adb push/pull
or ddms explorer might be a better choice.

I am trying to update info about record with id=1:

Doc says that I could use getContentResolver.update();

So I want to use it like

ContentResolver cr = getContentResolver();
final ContentValues values = new ContentValues();
values.put(ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone.NUMBER, "55555555");

cr.update(ContactsContract.Contacts.CONTENT_URI, values, where,

Will this work and how to configure where and selectionArgs properly
for doing this if it works?
