    Hi -
    Great Forum!

    Can someone please point me to a tutorial on this? I have about 4000 I'd like to store on my new Droid X.

    Thanks -

    Richard

    1 - Connect your phone to the computer via USB.
    2 - Pull down the notification bar and tap on the notification that says "USB connection"
    3 - Select "Mass Storage"
    4 - Look for the device on your computer as if you were using a thumb drive.
    5 - open the folder entitled DCIM
    6 - drag a "folder" containing your photos into that directory, or drag the photos into a pre-existing folder within the DCIM directory.
    7 - dismount the mass storage device

    done! =)

    Thank you, But I did all that and

    when I touched the Gallery Icon it now says "SD Card is unmounted or unavailable."

    I know it's in there because I saw it when I installed the battery yesterday.

    Help?
    Thanks very much.

    That happened to me too. My fix was to:

    (after transferring photos and unmounting)
    1 - Tap on the USB notification and select "charge only"
    2 - Disconnect the USB cable.
    3 - Wait a few seconds and enter the gallery.

    For some reason, it takes a few seconds for the phone to reroute access to the card. It's still there, it just things that another source is using it for a couple seconds ...

    I accidentally unmounted my SD card from the menu. The only way I would get it to remount was to remove it and reinsert it.
