    Bought a $6.99 MicroSD reader from Fry's but doesn't fit the MicroSD from inside my droid. It will go into the slot but very loose. I have tried it loose in the Center, tight on th Right side, and tight on the left side with all the same results, shows two drives "removeable disk" but if you click on them it says insert disk.

    Sounds like you got a miniSD and not a microSD reader. Funny it'd be mislabeled like that.

    you probably need something like this Kingston USB MicroSD Reader.

    It should do the trick at 6 bucks from a reputable dealer... probably get it via google shopping or ebay even cheaper.

    some companies mis-label or just get the terminology wrong as in this picture

    Truth be told I downloaded an FTP server (SwiFTP) from the free droid market. and I use Filezilla ftp Client on my computer...
    No cables needed through wifi.

    Good luck with whatever you choose :)

    check ebay, you can get them super cheap there, for like $1, I bought a couple just to have in case one failed, but none of them have, so I gave them out to family that could use them

    Seriously, just go on ebay and buy one, they're like $1 with free shipping. No sense in paying $12 for something you can get for $1
