Okay I made a folder on my android phone.
I made a cars.txt in it, and I made a program to read and find the text files.
It works on my PC, it works fine.
Can I use "File" to get the file on the android?

I don't thing I can use "/Starage/sdcard0/Cars/" to find my folder on android.
When i use "My Files"(its on samsung) on my phone i get this. and i made a falder named Cars.

how can i get ther if its not "/Starage/sdcard0/Cars/"? or is it?!?


Cars <---

File folder = new File("/Starage/sdcard0/Cars/"); <---- i dont no how to navigate on android.
File[] listOfFiles = folder.listFiles(new FilenameFilter() {
public boolean accept(File dir, String name) {
return name.toLowerCase().endsWith(".txt");

Thanks for reading and helping out.

On Android you shouldn't construct the entire path directly. As described in, use the API methods to access either internal or external storage.
