1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

Any good documentation for the Droid?

    I am a windows mobile user (formerly) and I miss the familiar interface with "disks" etc...

    Does the droid have a file system or anything like this?

    For example I downloaded Frodo the c64 emulator, which is fine except that I can't send any files to the Droid nor can I download any from the browser. I hope I like this but I am really missing my familiar Windows phone right now.

    You can mount the droid on your computer similar to any "flash/usb" type drive. There is a way to set up folders for Music, Videos, etc... not sure how to isntall the c64 emulator though, I've not tried that yet.

    I have a mac (yeah, I know..this is why people stick with windows) and it won't recognize the droid by just plugging it in. I can't see anything that looks like a file system.

    You also have to mount the disk from the Droid - it won't just appear automatically like most removable drives. If I remember right, on the notification bar a USB icon appears, open the notification bar and press the USB icon and then select "mount". Then you can see your Droid like any other removable drive on your computer. I assume it works the same on a Mac (I only us PCs).

    Well, I got it to mount. So far so good. I was able to copy the files over to the Droid. Step two accomplished...

    Man, that manual that Verizon gave is a piece of crap...

    Anyway, now is there a "flie explorer" function for the droid?
