Hello Experts,

I'm trying to push images into the mnt\sdcard directory.  But I keep getting a message in the Console saying Failed to push the item(s).

I went to the adb  shell and did type:  mount -o remount,rw /mnt\sdcard

Nothing changed.  I've attached a screenshot compilation of some screenshots that I'm seeing.

Any ideas on how I can change the permission of the folder so I can push images into that directory?

Thank you.

Any space left on sdcard?

I don't see any permissions assigned on your screenshot other than folder. Files have permissions assigned?

Oh, I should have added more details.

This is the emulator via Eclipse.

Files don't have any permissions assigned, they are just some family photos on my desktop.

"Here is the way you fix it. I had a large file about 160M so what was happening it was most likely timing out. So to fix this I went to the Eclipse Windows -> Preferences -> Android -> DDMS then I set the ADB connection time out to 500000 and checked "Thread updates enabled" and checked Heap updates enabled". I was then able to push any file size up to the sdcard. I got the idea after reading this"-http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7521122/problem-pushing-large-file-to-emulator-sdcard-with-eclipse-ddms
