    Does anyone know how to change the location of my SD card when i connect my phone to my computer? The drive that it typically uses is already taken by my office's server. I can still see the phone's internal hard drive, but the server will not allow me access to the SD card.

    The SD card shows up and is accessible when the computer is not hooked into the server, so i know the SD card still works.

    I've done some quick searches, but have not been able to find any info.

    Thanks,

    You need to assign a drive letter to the sd card. Right-click Computer (or My Computer) and go to Manage -> Disk Management, find your removable drive, right-click and change drive letter to something like Z. It will now always show as drive Z regardless of the computer it is connected to.

    Okay, just out of curiosity, the sysadmin in me wants to know WHY you would be trying to mount your SD card on a server? Seems like an excellent way to allow a new vector of attack.

    I'm thinking he is referring to a network drive that's getting mapped at login to his workstation. Mapped drive is probably using drive letter d or e, preventing the removable drive from using the next available pbysical drive letter.

    Droids has it right. The server was essentially blocking me from accessing my sd card because they ued the same drive letter.

    Thanks again for the help.
