    I feel like an idiot asking this question, but I'm trying to move some .m4v video files from my hard drive (Win XP) to my Incredible.

    But what I see in Astro (and Linda, and OI) file manager looks nothing like what I see in Windows Explorer. I've searched the forum and cans't find anything that answers this.

    On the phone, using Astro, these folders show up in "/" (home):
    acct
    app-cache
    cache
    config
    d
    data
    dev
    emmc
    etc
    mnt - contains "sdcard" folder, which Astro says is empty
    proc
    root
    sbin
    sdcard - empty too
    sys
    system
    ...and a few files: default, init, etc...

    But in Windows Explorer, two drives appear when I plug in the phone and mount is as a hard drive. Neither of these looks anything like the above.

    Drive I: is 6.6 Gb, which I assume is the phone's internal storage. This has the folders:
    .bookmark_thumbs1
    .fooprints
    .Mail
    .mixzing
    albumthumbs
    DCIM
    download
    Downloads
    LOST.DIR
    MP3 - I put mp3s in here and they play on the media player, yippee
    My Documents
    paint

    Then there's drive J:, which at 1.8 Gb must be the SD card. This has a lot more folders, some the same as I:
    .android_secure
    .bookmark_thumb1
    .footprints
    .funny-babel
    .htcnews
    .kayakimages
    .Mail
    adobe
    Android
    astrid
    data
    DCIM
    download
    ...and a bunch more.

    No folders or anything called "sdcard" show up in Explorer.

    So...where do I put the videos to play them on my Incredible?

    Thanks!

    Make a folder on either the internal memory or SD card and name it "video" then click and drag your videos over

    m4v is not recognized by Gallery as a video file. The files need to have an MP4 file extension. If they are MP4's, you can put them anywhere on the memorycard.

    Do understand that iTunes rented/purchased files as well as Digital Copies are wrapped in DRM that will make the file non-playable on non-Apple devices.

    You can try renaming the file extension ofyour files to MP4 and see if that works, otherwise, use a conversion tool to convert your movies to MP4.
    If you created your files using a conversion tool, look for settings to save the files as MP4 instead.
