Read/write external storage on Android

I'm developing an Android application that reads and writes data in a

directory. I get the sdcard path trough the method

I tested the application on a Samsung device where the path returned by the method is
on wich I append
; all works fine and I can r/w files in this folder.
Now I'm trying to do the same on a Nexus device: I have put my files to read in the
directory and the
as path, on wich I append
. But in this case I cannot find the files to read.

I set all the storage permissions in the manifest.

Am I doing something wrong? Is there any particular issue related to an emulated directory?



In Android 6.0, you have to handle certain permissions at runtime. Please go through this. Because READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE and WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE are considered as dangerous permissions and has to be handled at runtime.
