    Question New guy in town

    I have had my Droid X for about 3 months. Seems to work OK although I find the Motorola/Google manuals lacking. So many features are either not addressed or poorly addressed. My issue is with the SD card. When I boot up, the card icon appears in the notification section with a gear wheel in the lower right hand corner. Also, when I connect to my computer, although it is recognixed in My Computer, the files are not shown such as the photos I want to transfer to my hard drive.

    Look in the DCIM folder on your SD card, your photos should be there

    I am able to access my photos in the Gallery. I want to transfer these photos to my hard drive. I can't access the photos with the Droid connected to my computer. The only files visible are setup and installation related files. Also, why is a gear wheel on the SD card icon when I am booting up the phone? does that indicate a problem? It didn't appear until a few weeks after I started using the phone? Thanks eveyone.

    Where is DCIM folder?

    How do I access the DCIM folder on the SD card either using the phone or connecting to "My Computer"? When connected to "My Computer", no SD card folders appear.

    If you set your phone to connect as mass storage you can use "my computer" to access all the files on the SD card. The SD card shows up as a new drive under my computer

    On the phone get a file manager like astro and you can go to the DCIM folder that way.

    When I connect my Droid to my computer using the USB cable, the phone appears as a CD drive named "Motorola" (H". It shows the total size as 5.98 MB with ) bytes free space. When I open it in My Computer, the only files are Autorun.inf, setup.exe. confih.ini, and MotoConnect_1.1.31_Driver_4.7.1.exe. There are no other folders or files. I just installed Astro. The fles are visible now. Let's me see if they now appear when I connect to my computer's My Computer. No, nothing has changed. While I can access the DCIM folder now on the Droid, still can't access when connected to the computer. Seems i may have to email the photos to myself from the phone in order to get them onto my hard drive. I paid too much for this Droid to have the USB feature not work.

    You cannot see the SD card on your computer because your phone isn't set to mass storage, its probably on charge only. Use you pull down window (finger swipe down from the top menu bar) and you should see something that states USB connection. Press on that and it should bring up a menu with 4 connection options. Press mass storage and hit ok. Wait a few seconds, you should hear "Droid" a few times as your SD unmounts from your phone and mounts to your computer. Now go into my computer and see if you have a new drive listed, if so that is your SD card.

    I did as you suggested and it was already set to mass storage. Reconnected Droid to the computer, opened "My Computer", and nothing has changed. The only files visible are the four listed previously. I appreciate your trying to solve this for me.
