Default Unable to access "/sdcard" directory on Kindle

Hey guys,

I have a 2nd gen Kindle Fire HD 7", and I could have sworn that previously when i hooked my usb cable to my PC and Kindle, that it gave an option for "external storage" along with "internal storage". Now I only see "internal storage"..

Am I correct in thinking that or no?

There's no external storage on KFHD 7 at all.

Under root explorer there's a /sdcard option. I swore I could access it before via USB. Its been months since I touched this thing. I apologize in advance if I'm mistaken.

/sdcard is a symlink to a folder in the userdata partition, not a actual sdcard.

There is an SD card analysis under tools in ES File Explorer. SD card is simply the way internal memory is sometimes worded. The KFHD7 does not have external memory though. Can't even use OTG cords with it. For those with OTG capable tablets ES File Explorer would indicate a USB file when connected.
