BB10 Alpha Simulator SD Card Access



I'd like to access a SD Card, which is connected by an usb converter to the host PC. Is it possible to change the sd card directory in the Alpha Simulator? I do have USB support in the VMPlayer.

Re: BB10 Alpha Simulator SD Card Access

I'm not aware of a way to mount other filesystems. Is using the built in fake SD card directory not enough? The network share removable_SDCARD is where I copied data in. From my app, I access QDir::currentPath() + "/../../removable/sdcard". I've had someone confirm this works on a device for me (my app can get at files on their SD card).
