Default Stick Mount puzzle

I have mounted a USB stick with Stick Mount but cannot find the sda1. I have sda2 thru sda12, but no 1 (one) in ES File Explorer. Any tips where that could be hiding.

I would try a restart, then go through the path /sdcard/usbstorage/sda? to try and find your files.

On my Sony tablet mounted USB sticks are named as "usbdisk..." in ES.
-> Favotites -> Phone -> mnt -> usbdisk1

My SD cards are named "sdcard" and "sdcard2"

Thanks for the answers. But I have no luck with Stck Mount. With the Nexus Media Importer I can find the files on the stick. So I guess I go with that since the sda1 is nowhere to be found.

As far as I know, your N7 has been rooted for StickMount.

That is correct. It does seem to mount the files from the stick, but then I cannot find them.

If you restart, plug in your OTG-usb cable with storage attached:
1. Do you see 'Stickmount searching', then a notification, then a message stating Stickmount... Active Mounts?
2. Do you have an ongoing notification Stickmount Mass storage device mounted?
3. Is Stickmount in your list of allowed apps in Superuser or Supersu?
4. What to you see in ES Explorer when you navigate to /sdcard/usbstorage/?

It sounds as if your OTG-usb cable is ok since you can use NMI, but you lose the write capability to your storage. Mine works perfectly with Stickmount for read/write/stream.

Answer to points 1-3 is Yes.

As to point 4, I do not see 'usbstorage' in the first place (in ES File Explorer). It only shows up in compatibility mode and then I have sda2 thru sda12, but no sda1.

Yes, I set 'Display hidden files'. But I cannot even get the usbstorage folder to show up.

I think I'm almost as frustrated as you must be over this. I don't use ES File explorer, but in either Root Explorer or Astro I can go to the /sdcard folder where I can find a usbStorage folder which contains a folder named sda1 which contains the files and folders on a microsd card in my microreader attached to the OTA-usb cable. I know many others use es file explorer successfully for this, so it doesn't make sense that you aren't seeing it. Did you set up multi-user profiles? That seems to complicate things by making additional folders for each user. I haven't done that, but you may have to go through sdcard0 or sdcard/usbstorage/0 or something like that. I hope someone who is using additional users could chime in on the required path.

No, I have no multi user setup. It is really puzzling. I will try one of the Explorers you are using. And thanks for the answer.

FWIW, I get different results depending on which (rooted) ROM is installed.

With (rooted) stock 4.2.1 (JOP40D), I use StickMount and everything seems to go fine, with the mount at /sdcard/media/usbStorage/sda1.

When I tried using StickMount on a recent CM10.1 nightly, the mount would happen, but the permissions were screwy and the results I got with root-privileged file explorers would vary depending on whether I navigated to the mount via /sdcard/... or /data/media.

Turned out that CM10.1 performs the mount itself - and StickMount was actually interfering with the correct operation of the auto mounting performed by CM10.1; once I uninstalled StickMount, everything was fine. It does put the mount at a different spot, though. I can't remember the location at the moment. You can find it easily enough by typing "mount" in a terminal emulator.

Hope that helps.

PS What ROM/kernel are you using?

I gave up un Stickmount and uninstalled it. Too much trouble. I am using Nexus Media Importer now. Works flawlessly. Thanks everybody for trying to help.
