Check Settings -> Storage, press Menu go to Storage Configuration. Is Internal SD checked? Mine is and it keeps the files on the internal card not external.

In my mind the external sdcard is a storage solution. It holds my pictures, music, video, and anything else large that my system generates gets saved there or moved there. The internal sdcard holds all temp data and everything else.

As we have progressed through these mount changes over the last few days none of the them have changed the underlying problem that the system is still writing all temp/cache files to my external sdcard. Does not matter what they are named for some reason the device keeps writing my maps, voice, dolphin browser, root explorer, etc cache files to my external sd. If I unmount it everything keeps working fine as well which confuses me. I have wiped the setting for the apps and deleted their temp directories but regardless as soon as my external sdcard is mounted they continue writing there.

I guess this isn't a huge issue but it makes a total mess of my external sdcard, the only place on my device that in the past I could actually keep organized.

So I guess what I was expecting to see was...

internal sdcard (emmc) continue as always holding app data and cache
external sdcard (sdcard) storing my files, music, pictures, etc and NOT acting as a temporary location for app data/cache

I am not bitching, just trying to explain this issue as well as I can. CM9 rocks my socks!

Does this make any sense? Am I the only one with this issue? Please advise

+1

On my stock ROM, I had all of my app data downloaded to the internal memory (at least I think), and all of my pictures, videos, and music/ringtones on the SD card so I can switch phones easily. I could care less about re-downloading app data again. There's no way to split the two up? As in apps install to the internal memory, and just have an option to run the media scanner on the external card?

I should say "apps" or "app data" as in the extra file some games require, obviously secure storage is for the app itself...

Yea Devs or other's who do programming are the only ones who know conventions and how frustrating it is when they arent followed. even i when i first got started in programming had a blatant disregard for how things should be... but the first code review i did... things changed bc trying to understand someone elses chopped up code is tough. that is why that wont fly with CM... there are just too many people working on it to be sloppy

anyways i feel that the devs shot themselves in the foot by attempting to appease people. if they had doe the change in nightly 20. and said do a full wipe and deal... then people would have to adjust... bu the recent nightlies they are trying to fix it and it is causing more trouble than its worth

There was the issue where if internal was emmc and external was sdcard and you had no external card inserted then the camera and gallery bugged out which had to be fixed, the rest of the changes could have been avoided by ignoring the crying.

They just reverted it again in the 4/22 nightly... what are you talking about?

It does not matter which way the cards are named it appears the system will write cache files to the external sdcard regardless.

Not to my knowledge, there is a possibility it was due to this change if you did a full wipe http://review.cyanogenmod.com/#/c/14960/ this was to deal with the issue of people not having an external card installed.

Edit: I'll certainly give you that the initial change, plus the various adjustments have been a confusing mess, but the initial change wasn't reverted just adjusted a number of times in a confusing way.

I'm waiting for the sensor & storage issues to be ironed out before I update.
