    Can't access phones files system

    Hey guys,

    I have a J2ME MIDlet running on a S40 device.
    I have the following function which is used to play mp3 files from a resource file and it works perfectly:

    public void playMP3Sound(String file_name) {
    if (null != m_player) {
    m_player = null;
    try {
    InputStream in = getClass().getResourceAsStream(file_name);
    m_player = Manager.createPlayer(in,"audio/mpeg");}
    catch(Exception ignored) { }
    catch(Exception ignored){ }
    I'm trying to play an mp3 file from the phones memory. My MIDlet is signed so I added the following MIDlet-Permissions:
    and I changed:
    InputStream in = getClass().getResourceAsStream(file_name);
    FileConnection fileConn = (FileConnection)Connector.open(file_name, Connector.READ);
    InputStream in = fileConn.openInputStream();
    an example file name is "file:///c:/Gallery/Audio/beep.mp3"
    When I call this function, an access denied exception is thrown. What can I do to fix this?

    You are very limited in terms of which parts of the file system you can access. You might find this thread useful.

    It looks that you might have entered the wrong file path or the path is not accessable to your app ("file:///c:/Gallery/Audio/beep.mp3").

    Which signature are you using to sign the build, did you add permissions in your JAD, did you modify the application permissions settings on the device after installing it - chcek if access to read user data and file system is allowed?

    try to run WTK PDAPDemo on your traget device and see if this can access this file - "file:///c:/Gallery/Audio/beep.mp3"
