I wish browse USB mass storage. So I need to detect device and mount point.
BlackBerry 10 OS mounts USB devices in : /accounts/1000/removable/
So in using QFileSystemWatcher, I'm extect to receive a notification as a mount point is created. But it doesn't work.
How can I be notified as a USB storage devices is connected and find the mount point ?

Are there any errors in the log? Have a look at this thread: http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Native-Deve

I'm having trouble detecting a directory change outside of the /accounts/1000 space.
I want to watch a directory in the /usr directory.
Is this allow or are we limited to the /accounts/1000 folder?

AFAIK any directory you have read access to you should be able to watch...
What are you trying to watch, and what's the result you're seeing?

I want to detect the new mount points as a USB mass storage device is plugged.
The BlackBerry OS create a new folder in the "removable" folder ; then mount the device. Just need to be notified and need to know the new mount point.

Is it not reporting anything?
While foregrounded - you could have a 1s timer to check the existence / children...

Timer ? Bad solution. And in this case I need to determine if it's a USB folder or other.
In the same way, we don't have got api to know the SD card mount point. So the path is hardcoded

I've asked the dev team if this class is expected to work.
(I see in a parallel thread Martin has commented on this issue too)
