SD Card question.
So, I'm coming to this phone from the truly awful Samsung Intercept, which was set up like this:
500mb internal memory (emmc)
on that phone, you could just move apps over to SD willy nilly and it didn't really matter.
this phone is obviously way different. i'm not particularly interested in moving apps over, i tend to be a bit of a phone minimalist when it comes to apps, and i know about that one app for doing it.
what i am interested in is the fact that no music player or video player i have used will just automatically scan /mnt/sdcard/_externalsd. why is this? what can i do about it? I have 6gb of music on my sd card and the only player that will bother with it is poweramp, and with poweramp i have to TELL it to find music there. i have root, and i tried to create a symbolic link between /_externalsd and the root of the sdcard, but no dice there. it's kind of frustrating to have a 16gb sd card that is all but useless to me.
also, it would be really nice to have programs like google music or netflix cache to my external sd card instead of the internal fake sd memory. when i tell google music to make something available offline, it puts it in /mnt/sdcard/(whatever) and not on the actual sd card. and there is no way to change that.
i feel like i'm missing something VERY obvious here so any help would be nice.
