    Bionic Will Not Save or Read from SD Card

    So I've had my Bionic since day 1 and I'll admit, its more reliable then the Tbolt I was using before, but damn is this product quirky.

    I occasionally download a PDF or something and want to pull it off my phone to read on my PC. Wait what?!?! The file isn't there!? I swore I downloaded it... So I go to view my phone and see that it's defaulting to the internal storage which I cannot access when used as a storage device on my PC. WTF... How do I default storage of media and downloads to my SD card? I keep reading around that the SD card is the internal storage? If that's the case, when I go to settings >> storage it see's my 32Gb SD card under SD then?

    How do I fix this? I'd like to be able to use this phone like every other android device I've had.

    Thanks

    I am actually having a similar problem with my Motorola Droid 2. Not sure what the cause is but I can usually get it to work after a few tries.

    There are two SD cards on Bionic; SD which is the internal one, the second one is the removable one (SD/ext.)

    Unless it gets changed, the default is the internal SD. Your looking on the removable SD/ext and finding nothing.

    SD (the internal one is 8Gig , 4Gig of which is set aside for applications (apk).
    Since this is much larger area then prior Droids, no reason to put applications on removable SD/ext.

    Design intent may be to store media, I.e.music, movies etc. I have seen in other discussions, the idea the future updates to operating system my utilize SD/ext.

    With the proper Motorola drivers on the computer you should be able to see both the sdcard-ext and the sdcard.

    Also, I agree with previous poster that this odd arrangement is there to facilitate Ice Cream Sandwich.
