TOPIC: Android 5.02 - cannot set ext sdcard as comic library location

Android 5.02 - cannot set ext sdcard as comic library location 2 years 6 months ago #41976

I'm using a Sony Z3 Compact tablet (not rooted) and full version 1.80 of ComicRack.

My comics are stored on my external sdcard (/sdcard1/Comics) but I'm unable to select it as a library location.

See screenshot:

This had a lot of discussion when 4.4 came out, and one one of the various topics should be pinned for reference. Here is some information about Android External SD Limitations.

/storage/extSDCard/Android/data/com.cyo.comicrack.viewer

Use this path, changing for your SDCARD only.

Thank you!

I set the main folder to /storage/emulated/0/Android/data/com.cyo.comicrack.viewer/files" then /sdcard1/Comics as the second folder.

I presume the first folder has to be writable for holding progress etc.

Thanks again!

found the issue, after the update from Android 4.4 to 5.x Comicrack was not able to write to his own directory on the SD Card (also the app was installed on the SD Card). So i reinstalled it no on the device, from now on i was able to select the SD Card (/storage/extSDCard/Android/data/com.cyo.comicrack.viewer) as the Main folder.

It may be that the folder structure is too deep for CRW to find it via USB.
I'll look into it.

I'm on Android 4.4.2 and having the exact same issue (although I'm using the folder /storage/sdcard0/Android/data/com.cyo.comicrack.viewer ). When I hit sync with tablet hooked up via usb, it will say "Running" for 20 seconds before doing nothing and acting as if the sync operation is done.


If I change the home folder to something else like /sdcard/comics, then sync operation works perfectly fine, but despite the name, this means that it is writing to my phone's internal storage instead of the sd card.


Any help would be really appreciated.
