    Hey all,

    A few days ago I was on here and was able to easily find a couple threads regarding the directory structure on the SD Card. Today, no dice. Would someone please post a link to what I'm looking for, or post here the directory structure needed on the card for photos, music, ring tones, notifications, videos, etc...

    Thanks,
    Josh

    Sdcard/Media/audio/(sub folders here)
    sdcard/media/video/
    sdcard/media/photos/

    USING THE FORMAT below will all your alarms, ringtones, and notifications be see selectable in the stock menu when picking a notification, or ringtone
    Sdcard/media/audio/alarms
    sdcard/media/audio/notifications/
    Sdcard/media/audio/ringtones
    Sdcard/media/audio/mp3s

    Flomaster,

    Thanks for the reply. Just to make sure I understand you correctly and I don;t mess things up, the "sdcard" is an actually directory, and not just the root drive of the card itself?

    Option "a" - f:/sdcard/media/photos/
    Option "b" - sdcard/media/photos/

    I am assuming you mean for it to be as in option "a", correct?

    Thanks,
    Josh

    /sdcard is where the sdcard gets mounted on the phone. When you mount the SD card on a computer, it will come up as a drive letter or in another mount location.

    /sdcard/media on the droid could be:
    F:\media on a windows computer
    /media/disk-1/media on a linux computer
    or who knows what on a mac

    So I guess the answer you're looking for is that it'll be option C, on the sdcard:
    /
    /media
    /media/photos
    etc

    The specific folder arrangement doesn't matter. The folder names do. My Alarms, Notifications, Ringtones and Music folders are all directly under /Media and I can select them via the stock menu.
