IOEXCEPTION : no space left on device

Postby Surbhi Mutneja » Tue Feb 16, 2010 1:20 pm


I am new to Android. My application includes audio and .png files of around 54MB. I have stroed all these files in Asset folder. The problem is when I try to run application emulator starts normally but application does not upload.
it throws following exception:

[2010-02-16 14:09:07 - ipooja]Failed to upload ipooja.apk on device 'emulator-5554'
[2010-02-16 14:09:07 - ipooja] Unable to upload file: No space left on device
[2010-02-16 14:09:07 - ipooja]Launch canceled!

I am using android 2.0 api 5, Eclipse Ganymede. I tried to run it by increasing Device RAM size as well as VM Heap size. But no success.

Please suggest is there any alternate solution of storing/accessing these files other than through SD Card.

Your early reply will be highly appreciated.

There is no any alternate solutions, becouse some devices have only 64-128Mb. You should store ths file on external storage.

Did you check your DDMS.what's error there.please Explain. And you can do one thing try to remove unnecessary application from Device and then try to run App. And how you are writing your Application to Device because raw assets you can't use,You have to use getassets() method to use those Assets.
