    About the Youtube problem:

    Some videos DO use the full screen. It appears that it makes the video as big as possible, without cutting the edges off, or stretching/cropping the picture.

    In other words, its kinda like a normal TV channel on a HD TV. Since the video is not made in widescreen, the phone will not use the full screen.

    Maybe in the future we will get an option to stretch the video to fit the screen, but I wouldn't hold my breath on that one. Its possible that it would be too CPU intensive to change flash video aspect ratios like that.

    Thanks for letting me know about that. I wont go nuts trying to figure out what I did to make this Weird al video go full screen but the naruto episode isn't lol.

    New question!!!

    Does anyone know how i can MOVE a pic from a folder I have into a different folder? For example I have pix from the camera, and pix ive saved off of text messages but they are only in the "downloaded" folder. I want to move the pix into my other folders I had previously created in my other phone that is now on this sd card. (Idk if i made sense or not)

    I can't find any options to move a picture. Let alone name or even rename it. Any ideas?

    You need to download a file explorer app. You can do a Market search for 'file explorer' and you'll get a bunch. I recommend EStrongs File Explorer. With it you can also connect to your home PC via wi-fi... and they're working on developing FTP. Little FYI since the developer was nice enough to respond to my E-mail

    edit: Works the same as Windows Explorer as far as moving files (copy/cut/paste, etc) and you can move files from PC to DROID and vice versa.

    For youtube when you are watching a video make sure you go to menu and view it in high quality..that usually fills the screen

    Pull up that main menu with all your apps ando ther icons on it. Go to the one called "Gallery" and all your pictures/videos show up there. All your audio files show up under the Music icon.

    You can easily set ringtones using an app called Ringdroid.

    OK....new question for anyone who can help. Is there a way to clear your entire text messaging all at one time instead of one thread at a time?

    Many of these questions about finding, moving, and renaming files are due to the fact that the Droid does not have a built in file manager. There are several good (and free) file management apps in the Market. One of the more popular (and highly rated) free file management apps is Astro. I use it and like it.

    Astro will also solve the problem of having all pictures show up together when you enter the Gallery. Use Astro to set up several different folders for your pictures. Then, instead of viewing you pictures with "Gallery", go into Astro and just open the folder that has the pictures in it you want to view. (Note: ALL of your pictures will still show up together if you do view then using the Gallery - but by using Astro you now have a different way to view them)
