    I've tried using the USB and selecting USB mass storage. My phone is showing up in My Computer as a "device with removable storage", but when I click on it, no files or folders are showing up. The only items listed are a setup file and the driver file. I have already run and installed the driver correctly as far as I know and nothing happens when the setup file is clicked. I'm using a 2007 Toshiba Satellite. Any suggestions? I'm trying to move a video that is taking up most of my storage on my SD card.

    I'm not a computer pro but I'd try a right click on the icon representing the phone drive and see if I'd get the 'explore' option

    If that doesn't work, maybe try taking the card out if you have a reader and slot for it. A pain, I know, but if it works....

    That sounds like the CD install thing they put on the phones. Give this a shot:

    Menu > Settings > Storage

    Make sure Disable Software Install is checked. Then replug your phone in again.

    Yea, I don't have a reader, wish I did! I tried looking at "explore" earlier but it just lists the same files. Thanks though!

    That's not an option when I go to storage. Would it be somewhere else? Thanks!

    Well, depending on your time frame and whatnot, they're pretty cheap most places. If you can't get it the right way, it could be a last resort for you.
