Afaik, as Android is a derivation of Linux, you might need to unmount
the USB storage properly before physically unplug that. Unlike to
Windows where you will see a progress bar to show the status, writing
data in *nix is that you will see the files appear on the destination in
advance to files written completely.

Just 2c based on *nix, please kindly point out if I am wrong.

1. How to redraw the list in ExpandableListViewActivity

Hi there,

Here is the situation.  In a TabbedView, one of three tabs is an
ExpandableListViewActivity.  My application is using SQL Lite to store the
data bound to the ExpandableListView.  When I change the SQL Lite data in
another activity, I need to refresh the ExpandableListView and show the new
data.  If I am drawing the tab for the first time after adding new data, the
list shows correctly after the tab switch.  If I am in the
ExpandableListViewActivity when I add new data to the list or edit existing
data, then I do not see the change.  In this case, when I exit the
application and restart, I see the modified data was stored in SQL Lite as
expected.  Can anyone suggest how I might get the tab to redraw the list?

The partially working code looks like this:
    protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent
intent) {
        super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, intent);
//stuff deleted
        if((requestCode == EDITOR) && resultCode==RESULT_OK) {


The constructor for the list adapter is where I execute the code to populate
the groups and children.  Do I want to drop and create a new list adapter?
That seems like a waste of perfectly good rows.  Is it something I should do
in the ExpandableListViewActivity, rather than the TabHost?  The fact that
this is an expandable list is probably irrelevant; I am stuck where an
object on the screen that has changed is not redrawn automatically.
Your help is deeply appreciated.

Best regards,
