 I have problems detecting whether a (virtual) sd card is installed in
the emulator
I have created a virtual sd card using mksdcard, and now I start the
emulator with the option
-sdcard path

This seems ok, but when I run the following code

String state = android.os.Environment.getExternalStorageState();



throw new IOException("SD Card is not mounted. It is " + state + ".");


I get the IOException, telling me that the state is "removed"

does anybody knows what I am missing here?
