connect to a sqlite database from res folder

Hi all, i know its not advisable to use a database stored inside the res folder but since my app will only be reading from the database and will not write into it, I'm considering it. I've tried to copy out the db from the res folder to the device/sdcard but the resulting file is 0kb. Is it possible to connect to a sqlite db stored in the res folder? If yes, how do I go about it? Am pretty sure 'URI' wouldn't work. Help Please

"its not advisable to use a database stored inside the res folder"

 

It is not just not advisable, it is not possible. 

 

"I've tried to copy out the db from the res folder to the device/sdcard but the resulting file is 0kb"

 

Look at the sqlite Demo sample supplied, it does this.  by reviewing the sample and comparing with what you do, you will probably find your problem.
