    Hi there, just put some data from my notebook on my Sony Xperia X10 via Bluetooth, but where can I find my files on my phone? And how can I get access to my SD card on my phone?


    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    Just download an application from the market :
    "Astro file manager"

    Normally files are saved in the \download directory.

    So I cannot get my files without this app? Too bad, cause I do not own a credit card, what a stupid idea is that?:rolleyes:

    Astro File manager is Free, as is OI file manager.
    If you transferred media files like pictures or music then Mediascape will allow you to see them.

    that's brilliant - I can't find my bluetooth files either ... I guessed they must be in a folder called 'bluetooth', but where is that please?
    I've spent about 2 hours trying to find them and am tearing my hair out!!

    I have the same problem :(
    But I did find the Bluetooth folder with half the files there. I had sent both MP3s & JPGs from my HTC Android 2.3 phone to my Acer Iconia A110 Android 4.1, using Astro File Manager.
    I also checked the Downloads folder. I only have a couple PDF files I downloaded yesterday.
    The strange thing is that I have even performed a search with Astro using the name of one of the JPG files and didn't find it. But if I slide my finger from top to bottom on the tablet's screen it shows me a list of recent activity, there I can click/open the activity when it received the files. Then it opens a window/folder containing all the files. From there I can click on any JPG and it will open. But I can't see where exactly they are located :( I have tried clicking and holding on the file name to see if it would offer me to see its properties, but nothing happens. And the only option this window is giving me is "Clear List" :(
    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance guys.

    Good news!
    Not totally sure on this, but it might be that the received files will only be kept in the Bluetooth folder for so long. This time around I knew where the Bluetooth folder was, so didn't waste anytime. Went there and moved out the files to another location.

    Not a shred of help in this thread so far. Sending device says transfer was successful. Receiving device says transfer was successful. File does NOT appear in either sdcard0 or extsdcard -- conducted searches, file not found. Settings/bluetooth/received files shows the file; select open, it tells me the size and type of file but won't let me do a go_÷=%_€ed thing with it. Tried installing some app that supposedly facilitates bluetooth file transfers, it tried to transfer EVERYTHING on my device. Uninstalled that POS pronto. REALLY frustrated here.

    whenever you receive any file or files from bluetooth it always get saved in device memory. So whenever you want to retrive or want to use tha particular file you can go to myfiles/device storage/downloads, here you can see all the files which you have received via bletooth.
