    I have upgraded from a Droid 2 running Liberty Gingerbread to a D3. Now, I know the D3 mounts the SD card in a different location, but this is making it problematic for me to restore data - like my text messages and LauncherPro settings...

    Is there a way around this / how can I resolve this? Root the phone and force the SD card to mount where it used to? There must be an easier way...

    I should add that card mounts and unmounts just fine, and I can save/edit/see data on the card, eg: I can take a video and it saves just fine. When I open up LauncherPro and try to restore from a backup, I get an error saying that the SD card is not available. Ditto with using SMSBackup and Restore - it's just looking in the wrong place... I know I can't be the only one with these issues...

    Making Progress...
    Code:
    Internal Storage Mount Path: 
    /mnt/sdcard
    Code:
    SD Card Mount Path: 
    /mnt/sdcard-ext
    I say bull****. BUT! I should have guessed. This just means I'll have to **** around and move **** back and forth manually. Woo...
