    I tried to find an answer to this through the search function, but I didn't have any luck. I took a 2 minute video. I want to upload it to my PC or post it to Facebook. I am not having any luck figuring this out on my own so I would really appreciate any help. Thanks.

    Hi Becca. You would do it just like you would do any other file. Mount your Droid to the PC using the USB. Use the pull down window on the Droid to mount to your computer. Open the SD card (it will pop up on your computer) and drag the video file to your desktop or wherever you choose.

    Hope this helps.

    Becca,
    If you download Astro, a free app in the market and navigate to /sdcard/dcim/camera you will find the videos and pictures you have taken. Do a longpress on one of the files and select Send. From there you can transfer it via bluetooth, email it, send it via a txt message or send it to youtube. pics can go to facebook...more send options with pics than with videos it seems like.

    The SD card does not pop up at all. How would I get to it otherwise? Now a Zoombrowser (picture software from my Canon camera) box pops up and says: No images to download to the Memory card.

    I do have pictures and videos on my phone.

    Astro? You download it from the Market to your phone. It's an app.:)

    Yup, use the pre-installed Market app and search for Astro. It's a good tool that will let you navigate around the files on your phone. Let us know how you make out!

    Okay, to my credit I had figured that out and downloaded it before you commented back, lol.

    I tried to send it, but the file is too large to email or message. Is there anything I can do now?

    Are you dragging down the notification bar after plugging in the USB and mounting the sd card?

    And then when you look at the new drive letter on your computer, it's not showing up?

    Okay, I think I have got it! Thank you so much, all of you. I love it when I finally figure out something new.
