Motorola Xoom :: Missing Files And Folders In Backup
Oct 3, 2011
I am following the instructions to copy the files from my xoom to a windows 7 PC (64 bit). It does not copy all the files and folders. For example when I do the select all instructed I only get 4 of the 13GB of data. I saw that it only copied the music files in the directory music, none of the sub-directories. I could then select all the folders in music and copy them over (none of my music on the xoom has any DRM). I was still missing some files. When I hook the xoom up via the USB cable I get the following mounted:
I can not drag Internal Storage to the folder created on the windows 7 pc, it is just a red circle with a line thru it. I can select all the directories/folders under Internal Storage, but it randomly picks which directories/files/sub-directories to copy.
Perhaps a problem with the win 7 pc driver?
Before I send the xoom off (and I have my packing box already) I would like to back it up completely.
In the process of preparing my Xoom for its return to Motorola for an LTE upgrade, I attempted to backup up "Internal Storage" to two different Windows XP machines. Despite numerous hard resets of the Xoom and numerous restarts of the XP machines, I had numerous problems in successfully copying all files. Despite selecting all folders, less than half would transfer during copy/paste. At least one file name in the "Android" folder was too long for Windows XP, but I didn't have time to find it(them). Moreover, 14gb of files disappeared from my external SD card, as did several folders from the internal SD card. I am an above-average computer user, and have never had this kind of trouble
I have Vista on my desktop computer. I see Xoom under "My Computer", I found "Device Storage" and started copying the files from Xoom to a new folder. All of a sudden Vista stopped copying the folders and daid it can't read from the device.ow after updating the drivers with Download Motorola 5.2.0 Driver with MotoHelper* , checking to see if USB Debugging is unchecked and pulling my hair out, there is no Device Storage displaying to access. My Xoom shows under "My Computer" but then after double clikcing to access the Xoom, it's empty..
I back-up my blackberry through desktop manager about once every two weeks. Yesterday, my phone crashed and gave me an error message, forcing me to update my software and wiping the phone in the process. It did this once before as well. When I went to go restore my blackberry after the update, the last backup file I could find was from May. I backed it up two days ago. I've backed it up a ton of times since last May. This doesn't make any sense.I've lost all my contacts, all my messages, everything that I gained in the last six months.Does anyone know where the files could be, or why Desktop Manager might have messed up like this and not actually been making backups when it said it was? I restored with the May backup and tried backing it up, and of course now it works and the file is in the Blackberry Backups folder. I've searched for .bbb files on my computer and found nothing beyond what's in the folder.
I have a motorola xoom 4G verizon tablet with a corporate sync account setup to sync calendar, contacts and email.Problem:The Xoom only synchronizes the default "Contacts" folder and default "Calendar" folder. It will not synchronize any other contact folders or calendar folders.My droid X and droid Bionic sync any contact folders and calendar folders that are in my corporate account.Why does this work on my android phones but not on my xoom tablet?I know that I can spend money on the touchdown application but why does this work on 1 version of android and not on the honeycomb version?
We were told weeks ago that it would be and now with the update rolling out we still don't have confirmation.If its not included can you put it on the site for download so we can add it manually.Its on the WiFi Xoom and can't be region specific so
I saw a similiar discussion in the Non-US Xoom forum while I was searching for an answer to this same problem. Somehow the SD card cover came off of my Xoom. Does anyone know how to order a replacement
I would like to think that I am somewhat OK with using the XOOM based on the fact that I have an original DROID and have been dealing with the ANDROID OS for some time now. I have yet to load any files on the XOOM itself, but I was wondering how I go about accessing files once they are put on the XOOM. I have uploaded pictures and placed those in the picture folder but they are easy to find due to the gallery. When plugged into my laptop I can see all of the different folders, but I cannot figure out how to get to them when not plugged into the laptop. You can do a long touch on the DROID homescreen and it will give you the options of seeing, shortcuts, widgets, folders and wallpapers. This is how I would access files with the DROID. It does not work the same for the XOOM.
Xoom with Wifi and 3 G great , however.......I have installed the RockPlayerLite to play my .avi video's. Display is fine but the sound is just shaky noise.Other player same result.Video recording with sound made with onboard camera works fine.
Unfortunately my tablet is not recognized as an MTP device by my computer (I'm using Linux). So, I tried something else: I usually use an application named SwiFTP (an FTP server) on my Android devices. But I don't understand why, this app and all the others FTP apps I tried won't work on my Xoom 2ME. I suspect some kind of Motorola's internal firewall.
Usually, I have no problems making the USB connection to my Xoom work. I've been using it for nearly a year with no problems. Today, I noticed that when I connect my USB cable, I can see both the Internal Storage and SD Card devices. However, when I click on the SD Card, I don't see any files. I can see them just fine if I use a file manager on the Xoom so I know that they're there. I just can't see them with my Win7 box. It does know how much space on the SD Card is used/available so it's at least getting some information.
I installed the Motorola drivers to see if that would help but it didn't. I've also rebooted both devices and tried a different USB port on my PC.
I use my xoom for job searches. If I find a job and go to web page to up load resume, upload fails. It states file for mat is incorrect. I have verified file format is correct, any suggestions for fix?Could it be the path for the file location?
I've noticed that when I send an email directly from the xoom standard email client my signature is present in the email body, however when the "send email" to a recipient option is selected from the contacts application the signature is missing.What could be causing this inconsistency and is there something I can do about it?
I understand that 3g versions are able to customize voice recognition input but the wifi version is missing this option in the settings...are there other missing features?Why can't the wifi version customize voice recognition?It's under Settings, Language and Input, Voice recognizer settings - there's no "personalized recognition" on the wifi version...?
Got the 3.1 update on my wifi xoom this morning. Looks like im missing the movies tab in the market and im also missing the videos app. i tried clearing the data for the market but it made no difference.
Why is this not happening for the Xoom? For a device of this caliber it is a no brainer, but yet it doesn't exist. Without using alternative measures is anything in the works from Motorola or Google? I'm not really interested in a manager that dictates my device like iTunes does, but more along the lines of a system image creator/restorer.
Every morning the Dolphin browser pops up a message about backing up bookmarks to the SD card and asks if I want to have a try. It mentions backing up to the SD card and since there is no SD card in the Xoom ( although they call memory SD card ), are they talking about backing up to an actual SD card or are they referring to what shows in the Xoom as sdcard?
All of a sudden, when I plug my Xoom via USB into either of my computers (Win 7 x32 or Win 7 x64) the computer recognizes the Xoom, I can see the Internal Storage and the SD Card, but when I open either of these, I see no files. THe only directory that shows up on the Internal Storage is the Android directory.
Today, I attempted to open a couple of .txt files by clicking on them. The same thing happened when I tried to open a .jpg photo.I tried tapping on the icon and I tried holding it down, double clicking, etc. Either I forgot what to do to open a file or something has changed on my Xoom.
I have a Motorola Droid 2 and my girlfriend has a Droid X. We are able to share media files between the phones as long as we are on the same WIFI network. We use an application that came with the phones called Media Share. Is there a way that I can do the same with my Xoom?
Recently, I have been unable to open files or access links on my Xoom. For example, when I go into my downloads and touch the screen to open (say) a PDF file, the screen goes dull and then returns to normal brightness and my file doesn't open. If I go into Documents to Go and open the PDF file it seems to work OK however?Same thing is happening with video files, for example I touch a video file to open it in VPlayer and, again, the screen goes dull and I can't access the video. Same with music whcih I can only access through the music player, not through other routes such as Astro file manager etc. Also when I try to open some links to websites embedded in emails etc the screen goes dull and then bright again and the links don't work.
The Samsung Galaxy 10.1 is supposed to support AVI files. As the hardware seems identical to the XOOMs is this something (software) that will be coming to the XOOM/Honeycomb or is this proprietary to Samsung.
When I download a PDF or some other word file where does it go? I'd like to get rid of some of the "garbage" that has been downloaded and worked with but I can't find it on my XOOM. My pad is not rooted and I am using the basic software on it. Where I can find the files and how to get rid of them easy? I am with Verizon and still running 3.1 and in California.
