Checking external storage


I'm currently working on the Ribbit app and I'm having a little problem when trying to take a picture. My code shows no errors to me.

When I click the "Take photo" button, the toast message "There was a problem accessing your device's external storage".

But the weird thing is that there is an SD-card mounted to my Galaxy s4. I've tried running it when the app is connected to my laptop using the USB-cable and when it isn't connected. Still I always get the toast message.

Any help would greatly be appreciated. Nicolas de Fooz

Be sure you add: Android <p><uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/></p> not: Android <p><uses-permission android:name="Android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/></p> It is case sensitive, i made this mistake.
