i have to change the name of a jpg file , for that i have written the following code

sdcard = Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory();
from = new File(sdcard,imagePath.substring(8).toString());
to = new File(sdcard,"/DCIM/RoseVille_"+Info.getText()
+"_"+Amount.getText()+"_"+timeStampFormat.forma t(n ew Date())+".jpg");

if(from.renameTo(to)==true)
{
/// if renamming is successfull;
}

this code creates a new file with the required name while the file which i wanted to change is still their on sd card , if i remount the sd card then the old file gets deleted and the renamed file remains their.

so my problem is how to rename the file without remounting the sd card

thanks and regards
focode

Can you try the following on emulator, after you've renamed your file in code, run MediaScanner from dev tools, and see if the changed name is getting reflected?
