Change Saves Folder to SD Card
« on: April 26, 2019, 02:01:50 PM »
Hey all, Mupen64plus FZ won't allow me to navigate any further then /storage/emulated/0.  I need to get to the SD card for my save folder.  Is there a way I am missing to navigate to the emulated & storage folders?  When I tap the ^parent folder button it just reloads /storage/emulated/0.  It refuses to go up another level.

EDIT: should add I'm on android 8

That's expected behavior. Anything after Android 4.4 makes it very difficult to write to the sdcard, do it's disabled. You can still use the sdcard to store your ROMs though.

You'll need to use a file explorer app to view / edit folders beyond Storage/Emulated/0

Most devices have a File Explorer app pre-installed but there are others available to download, you should be able to view and transfer your save files using one of them.
