    I can not seem to figure out why my internal sd card will not mount. Some of the things I think it could be are as follows. I may have deleted something by accident when removing apps due to low memory alert. It could have happened while flashing a rom. I am currently on the one that says it is for my best buy tablet from this website S7100R001C28B010. Also, I thought maybe there was a error caused from disconnecting or connecting to my computer maybe. Is there any drivers for the sd cards and if so does anyone have them ? Thanks, Androidaholic

    Is your device rooted?

    If so can you show output of
    mount

    and

    busybox df -h

    Yes it is rooted with z4 however I do not know how to show the output of the mount. How could I do that and what would I need to do after that.
    Thanks, androidaholic

    # busybox mount

    Will show what's mounted


    Mounting the sdcards is controlled by /etc/vold.conf

    I think you may have a different version of that file, possibly one from a v103.

    My vold.conf has the sdcard2 lines commented out, the comments mention 'used by wlan' which is puzzling.

    I wonder if v103 S7 does really have internal sdcard, but it's not enabled someone just cocked up the config. I cannot understand why huawei would produce 2 different hardware versions. Perhaps they are just using the softwareo config to differentiate the versions ( the 8gb model is 70gbp more in uk)

    Could someone please post the vold.conf from a s7 that has internal sdcard, so I can compare and perhaps try testing the different config

    Oh well, worth a try.

    That file's same as v103 version

    So looks like no internal sdcard - bah


    Regarding the mount failure, check if vold is running

    # busybox ps -ef | pgrep vold

    1011 0 0:0 /system/bin/vold

    Thanks a lot for the help with this matter I think I will try and flash another rom and then look into these files if that does not work. What do I use to check for mount failure adb or terminal emulator ? Also I have not figured out how to use adb yet but I can use terminal emulator.
    Thanks, Androidaholic

    Okay when ever I type in #busybox ps - ef | pgrep vold a 1006 pops up if i hit return. Can anyone tell me how to reflash the kernal with the bootloader. I was thinking that could fix it. Or another idea is does anyone know something I could type in to terminal emulator to mount the internal sd card. Also, my external shows up in the picture gallery and the pre installed file manager but it does not show up in astro or titanium backup.
    Thanks,

    What I would try is to install clockwork recovery. Then there is an option under 'advanced' to mount the sdcard to the computer. See if your computer will read it from there.

    # busybox pkill -1 vold

    will restart the vold, but somehow I don't think it will mount your sdcard.

    BTW can you mount an external sdcard ?

    The sdcard io is handled by a loadable kernel module msm_sdcc, so check if that's loaded. It actually gets loaded by /etc/init_qcom_sdio.sh

    # busybox lsmod

    Okay I will try that thanks a lot pete and the others that have helped. I am about to the point that I am going to send the tablet to Huawei for the warranty. Do youa all think this can be fixed ? Also, yesterday my external sd card showed up under the internal in the preloaded file manager app. I have not been able to get anything to show up in astro or titanium though.

    Could you previously mount it?

    If not, you probably do not have an internal card.

    Don't worry about it, just buy a 16gb micro sd
