Default how to use FileConnection

Please Login to Remove!

I am trying to access a text file on my hard disk while working on the BB JDE and using the 8800 simulator. I am using the following code but i get the exception that the file does not exist.

PHP Code:
FileConnection filecon = (FileConnection"file:///SDCard/Blackberry/test.txt"); 
The file is located in the same folder as my project.
Is the filepath correct?

Thanks in advance

That code will only access the simulated SDCard for the simulator. Have a look at this KB article: How To - Use a computer file system as a microSD card
My other Blackberry is a PlayBook.
