Default [Q] Correctly Mounted SD Card?!

Where should my external and internal sd cards be mounted?

Especially when it comes to things like these Google Edition roms and games like San Andreas that look for their data in sdcard/Android/data/obb?

How do you have yours setup and what is the most appropriate way to have it mounted?

Current Phone:
Model: Samsung I9505 Galaxy S4
Android Version: KitKat 4.4.2
ROM: S4 Google Edition | Final-R3
GAPPS: OFFICIAL 0-Day PA-GOOGLE APPS (All ROM's)
Previous Phone:
Model: Samsung I9305 Galaxy S III
Android Version: Jelly Bean 4.2.2
ROM: Stock

I have a Google Edition phone running stock 4.4.2. There are multiple mount points and symbolic links for the internal and external SD cards. Here's what I have:

Internal SD mount points:

/storage/emulated/0
/storage/emulated/legacy
/mnt/shell/emulated/0
/mnt/shell/emulated/legacy
Internal SD symbolic links:
/sdcard --> /storage/emulated/legacy
/mnt/sdcard --> /storage/emulated/legacy
/storage/sdcard0 --> /storage/emulated/legacy
External SD mount points:
/mnt/media_rw/extSdCard
/storage/extSdCard
External SD symbolic links:
/mnt/extSdCard --> /storage/extSdCard
You should be able to get to the Android/obb folder using any of the internal SD card paths, but both /storage/emulated/0/Android/obb and /storage/emulated/legacy/Android/obb are mount points, so these are probably the best ones to use.

Hope that helps.
