    I shot some videos with another video recorder I have, the RCA Small wonder, then uploaded them to my comp, and now I want to take them from my computer to my droid.

    I connected the droid to the computer, mounted the USB and went into my computer to find the device. The only thing that shows up is Removable disk (E: ). I put the RCA videos into this device and then what do I do? Eject? Tried that and unmounted my droid but still dont know where the heck these videos are.

    Can't seem to find anyone else with this problem.

    They need to be MP4 files for the Droid to see them. Any location on the SD card should be visible in the gallery, as long as the format is correct.

    There are a ton of threads around here about converting to MP4. You can use apps like DVD Catalyst, or my favorites, the freebies like Handbrake or Any Video Converter. You basically want the same settings as you would use for an iPod or iPhone, and you can up the resolution for the Droid.

    +1 for Any Video Converter. Drag and drop the files into the box, choose the output format, convert. Piece of cake.
