    Try this to create or read file in android.
    working with files

    and to create/read XML file try Working with XML

    If you need any demo project related to xml than let me know, i’ll try to give you

    File newxmlfile = new File("C:/new.xml");

    You’re trying to create your file on drive C. Android is a linux-based system, so there are no drives there. The storage devices can be mounted to root (“/”) or any other folder.

    For your application /data/<pakcage-name> folder is available. Try to write there. Also, you can try to write to external storage, but your progrma will need a permission to do that:

     <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/>

    This should be mentioned within your manifest file.

    Read more here.

    It seems like your trying to create a file at the location of c:/ which is not a valid path identifier on a android system. Android comes from a linux environment. follow this link to learn more about data storage on android

    If you want to create a file on your local pc you first need to create it on your Android device and then pull it from the device (either the emulator or your real phone)

    You’re not allowed to write to that location.

    File newxmlfile = new File("/data/new.xml");

    You could save it to the internal storage, or cache.

    Due to the Android security model you can’t write to /data/new.xml. That’s trying to right to the root file system which is why you are getting permission denied. Try it without the leading slash.

    FileOutputStream fos = openFileOutput("new.xml", MODE_PRIVATE);

    That should put it relative to your app.

    Have you added the necessary permission for this?

    Permission to write to the SD card

    You can use this:

    File xmlDir = new File(Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory().getPath() + "/data/new.xml");
