    How to Access SD Card Directly

    Hey... I'm in my fourth hour of my DX. I'm just wondering if there is an app that will allow me to access the SD card via the USB Data Cable or VCAST.

    I hooked up the phone and my PC automatically installed the drivers but the phone sees the SD card as a MTP device rather than a mass storage unit. So long as it is an MTP device I can't create subfolders. Anyone have any ideas?

    When you hook up the DX to a computer and pull down the notification panel is there different options of how to mount the device listed ?

    No... it just sees it as an MTP device. I see only the DATA and MEDIA folders. When I explore them I am unable to create a new folder.

    BTW, computer = XP Home SP3

    Should be in the pull down of the notification bar.

    Notification bar on the phone or on the computer. If it's the computer the notification box offers me only two choices:

    () Synchronize media files to this device using Microsoft Media Player
    () Take no Action

    If it is on the phone then I'm a bit lost



    Geeze.... that's what I get when I go 14 years with Palm....

    Your Computer O/S shouldn't matter, on your Handheld Device in the Pull Down Notification Panel should be different "Mount Options" choose Mass Storage

    On your phone, put your finger at the top of a home screen and drag it down...Notification Panel

    DId you format the card after you installed in into the phone cause if so you lost what you had on it before.

    But as others said slide down the notification at the top and there should be a setting there like mount as disk drive or something like that. Then you just have to figure out which drive is the sd card on the computer.
