 Dear Developpers,

I created a 'Hello-World'-application on my PC and saw that the AVD is
very slow.
When I type text in the simulation, it takes several seconds until the
text appears in the
text field. Also mouse interactions are very slow.
Possibly my PC is too slow. it's a single core AMD with 1.6 GHz

Are the simulations on your PCs running reasonably fast ?
I just want to make sure it's my PC.

 I am using a very slow old Gateway single core with almost no RAM and
it still responds reasonably. I have slow boot up times for the
emulator, but it runs fine once started. I am developing using eclipse
on ubuntu, that may be part of the difference.

 Make sure that you have not too much running on your system. It is not
necessarily the speed of your processor but the memory of your

-- don't use firefox
-- Eclipse might slow down y system (close it ... may be it helps)
-- run emulator via command line
-- if you run on Windows use the task manager to find out what else is
using a lot of memory

 Thanks for the hints.
I work on Windows XP. It's better as long as I don't use the phone as
an internet browser.
I think I can work so far and focus on the internet problem later.

1. How to write to the File ?

Hi All,

I would like to know how to write to file. I have tried using

OutPutStream out = new FileOutPutStream(fileName);
out.write(byte [], 0, length);

This way always returns Parent directory or File is not writable.

I have also used openFileOutPut(fileName, MODE_PRIVATE) method but
this method works properly if it is called from the same class which
has extended Activity and I am writing to the file in different class
and that too in different thread.

I have tried to get the Application Context through
getApplciationContext and call openFileOutPut method but still theres
something wrong that I am doing.

So please can someone suggest me a proper way to write to a file.

Help me out! Does anyone knows what this error is about and how it can
be removed.
Thanks & Regards
