    Is there a way to access your Droid's SD card from a web browser on your PC? I know this is probably a huge security risk, but I was thinking how handy that could be, not to mention time saving if you need to shuffle some files around, remove some, add some, but couldn't link your droid via USB to a PC

    I'm getting my Droid 2 in 2 days and it's going to be my first one so how to do exactly what you say I do not know. BUT:

    Why don't you try Drop Box for Android. It's not the same thing but the good thing is that it makes everything available on any of your devices and for free.

    Dropbox - Online backup, file sync, and sharing made easy.

    Cheers,

    Scratch dropbox. Install SwiFTP from the market and map your device as a server, its the same thing as using your usb cord for mass storage or pc mode, but wirelessly over wfi. Its amazing. I can access pics and vids of my son off my wifes phone at my pc when she's upstairs/outside etc etc.

    There's also another app called WebSharing that will actually give you a web interface and allow you to stream pictures, video, and music wirelessly. I have the Lite version which doesn't support streaming, but you can still drag and drop files.
    Here's the AppBrain link: WebSharingLite File/Media Sync - Android app on AppBrain

    I've got dropbox and have been using it for some time, but what I am looking for is the ability to access my SD card (all of it) and dropbox can't do that, great program though...

    I'll am checking out the SwiFTP, now if i can just get it to connect...

    Is there a way to do it other than with wifi? It looks like the proxy server may no longer be in service since the owner has abandoned it... I am looking for a way to do it with the internet not wifi...
