Format SD Card as Internal Storage
#1
Question 
Hi,

I just installed my brand new 11.6 UIS7862 (UQS11N8G-H), but I have so far two problems. One is the following:

I am not able to format the SD Card as internal storage, whenever it is in the System -> Storage, or built-in file manager or even Google File.

Could you please enable this feature, it is an Android Built-in feature for quite a while and some others Android Headunit do support it.



PS: The question, why?... Answer is Music! On external storage (USB, SD...) it needs to be re-scan and re-scan and re-scan... at every boot up (even wake-up from sleep modus).

I'm having a similar issue trying to use a 3rd party Music app (GoneMAD, because it is better than the onboard!) and Joying has the storage permissions locked down so much that some functionality doesn't work. Their solution - use their inferior application!

You will notice that you can't even attach screenshots to an email using the gmail website through chrome, again because Joying has seen fit to lock down permissions to the point that the device becomes unusable.

This is quickly become a deal breaker for me, and I am considering returning the unit. I want an android device that I have control over, not the manufacturer.

Hey Drew, I can confirm, I tried also to use Vanilla Music (recommanded!), and I come up to the same problem, impossible for it to even read a dammed MP3 Angry

Did you tried to contact Joying Support?
