How to install SD card

Postby Akshata » Fri May 07, 2010 1:10 pm

I want to install SD card on android emulator (1.6).

I found one command to install SD card:

mksdcard <size> <file>

But where to execute it I am not getting??

I tried in Dev tools-> Terminal Emulator

But it is giving error : permission denied

Thanks :)

Hey Akshata

Here is the android docs on it:

I have only ever done it from Eclipse, so can't really comment on the command line. But you may have to create a new AVD. Not sure if you can add one to an existing AVD. Might be wrong though...

Hope this helps!
