    Ok, my question will show my lack of knowledge of the droid. I plug the droid into the computer with the USB - so far so good. I can mount the card with no problem. I can move files back and forth between the sd card and my computer. But my question is, how, from the droid as a stand alone, do you access the sd card? You know, like windows explorer? All my other smart phones were able to "see" and manipulate files on the sc cards, but I can't seem to find that on the droid. Like see pictures or music other than through other programs. Am I the only one with this problem?

    I was able to move all my outlook contacts to the sd card and the droid recognized them and loaded them into the contacts folder.

    Are you following the link from your Droid?

    The link works if you follow it from your Droid.

    Some one gave me this info:
    Try Astro...http://market.android.com/search?q=p...m.metago.astro
    You can get there from the "market" icon on your phone. I got it and it works. It should have been part of the phone to begin with, but at least some one was on the ball..

    I had my phone for less then 3 hours and I was able to find this out without looking on here. Umm it's not hard, it's common sence if you know a little about pc's.

    You can take you "mightier then thou" attitude and go else where. Not everyone has the knowledge that you do big shot! This is not the place to belittle or berate people who are looking or help!

    I am not taking that route but not doing a quick search on the app store or a quick search on any search engine would have answered it for the original post. But it was answered and asked again after it was answered. I just a little surprised by that. :icon_eek:

    sdcard

    I just mounted the droid on my desktop and I can see some disk (it says 14.9 gb) in my computer. I can drag some jpegs over, but astro tells me the disk is empty.

    Am I seeing the Droid memory or sd card in my computer?

    The current files include backups, DCIM, Foxnote, GDocs, google-maps_navigation
    LOST.DIR, tmp, where.


    Thanks

    Copying files to your Droid

    Gary,

    What you do is connect the Droid to your pc via the micro USB which is what you've done. You need to choose to 'mount the Droid' when prompted on the Droid.

    Navigate to the Droid from the Windows file explorer and copy between the two. This thread will help or there are others under FAQ.

    Have a good day,

    any File explorer will do the trick. Go to your markets app and download one. I would recommend Astro ive used nothing but that.

    After you have transferred all the files that you need to, you need to unmount the SD card so you can view the files with ASTRO on your Droid.
