Okay...so which folder is my SD Card?!?!

I went out and bought an SD card today. When I put it in, I got a notification that said, "Preparing SD Card" and that's it....

I wanted to move some photos I copied onto my 'hard drive' to my sdcard, but I have no idea how to do this. When I go into Astro to look at my folders, I see a file folder called 'sdcard' in the 'mnt' folder. That's obviously my non-removable 8 GB 'hard drive', as it has all my applications in it (not sure why it's called sdcard...that's misleading!). So I see a bunch of other empty folders, but I have NO IDEA which one is my SD Card. I don't see a 'drive' letter like I would in windows, nor do I see anything that indicates folder size or bytes remaining to give me a clue (even in 'list' view).

Where the heck is this SD Card!!!

/mnt/extsd is the folder you're looking for.

Also make sure you've got the SD card mounted by going into Settings -> Storage. The Gallery app will automatically search for photos on any media plugged into the Kobo Vox, so you don't need to hunt for it if you're using that.

It is pretty confusing but in Android /sdcard refers to the internal storage.

On most Android devices the external card is under /removable/MicroSD but on the Vox I think it's /extsd.

Great - thanks, I got it.

The SD Card appears to have automatically mounted itself, so that's great.

It sure is a pain to navigate here - no dragging and dropping! Also, looks like I couldn't 'move' my files. I had to 'copy' them and then delete the originals!!! Does that sound right? They were photos...

Sounds like a permissions issue, pokee - I've seen that before with other Android-based file browsers. And you can multiselect with some file managers to copy them.
