[TWEAK]COPY ANY FILE TO SDCARD OF BLUESTACKS

1. You need to download these tools :- OSF MOUNT and EXT2 VOLUME MANAGER and ROOT EXPLORER.apk file. DOWNLOAD THE FILES FROM HERE:-

OSF Mount (32 Bit)  OSF Mount (64 Bit) 
EXT2 Volume Manager
ROOT EXPLORER.apk

2.After downloading and installing everything first of all kill all BlueStacks processes in the task manager (starting with HD-...) and then Open EXT2 Volume Manager click on Tools in the Menu Bar and then Service Management.

3. Under Service Startup Mode select "SERVICE_DEMAND_START" and then under GLOBAL VOLUME SETTINGS uncheck "Mount all volumes in read-only mode" and check "Enable writing support for ext3 volumes".

4. Under Service Status at the top you will notice "Ext2Fsd is NOT started". So click on the tab "START" just on its right and then click the "APPLY" button. A message will appear just click OK and minimize Ext2 Volume Manager.

5. Now Run OSF Mount and click on "Mount New" and then click the dotted button under "Image file" and then  browse to this folder

For Windows 7 == "C:\ProgramData\BlueStacks\Android"
For Windows XP == "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\BlueStacks\Android"

and select "SDCard.fs" file

6. Remember to ***UNCHECK THE READ-ONLY DRIVE*** at the bottom. and then click OK.

7. Wait for it to mount and then open My Computer. Here you will see a new drive "SDCard(H:)" or "Local Disk (H:)" something similar. Open it. Here you can do anything you want for eg. If you want to create a new folder like Music or My Data or you can copy any file to it like music files or video files.

8. After copying your desired files Open OSF Mount again and click "Dismount all and Exit" and then click OK and wait for it to dismount devices and exit.

9. And then Restart BlueStacks.

10. In BlueStacks open Root Explorer and scroll down to "sdcard" folder and open it and YOU WILL FIND YOUR COPIED FILE OR FOLDER THERE.


I CREATED A FOLDER MUSIC IN MY SDCARD.

    1. You will find the sdcard.fs in C:/ProgramData/BlueStacks/Android.......
      Remember that it is "ProgramData" not "Program Files".......
      To see this ProgramData folder you need to "Enable Hidden Folders" in Control Panel

  10. Simply copy your files to c:\ProgramData\BlueStacks\UserData\SharedFolder\

    And your files will appear in /sdcard/bstfolder/BstSharedFolder/

  11. For those of you having problems with it saying it is in use by another program:

    1) In task manager, make sure that show processes from all users is selected.

    2) End every process related to bluestacks (They all start with HD-)

    3) Once all Bluestacks related processes are killed, mount sdcard.fs

    Happy rooting all

  24. Hi,
    Thanks for the detailed guide.I've done everything, but have doubt about where to put obb files in the SD card drive which I've mounted using OSF mount? And another prob is sometimes when trying to follow the instructions -'Now Run OSF Mount and click on "Mount New" and then click the dotted button under "Image file" and then browse to this folder

    For Windows 7 == "C:\ProgramData\BlueStacks\Android"
    For Windows XP == "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\BlueStacks\Android"

    and select "SDCard.fs" file

    6. Remember to ***UNCHECK THE READ-ONLY DRIVE*** at the bottom. and then click OK.'

    Then some times(not every time) showing this error:'The process can't access the file because it is being used by another process' though I've already closed bluestacks tasks through task manager!!!!!!Please help, Thank You
