    Like the title says, why do we have such a large internal memory? I have more apps than I could ever use and I still have 5.7 gig's left over.

    Is there anyway to use the internal storage via a file manager?

    I realize every time I wipe/install a ROM all internal storage gets dumped, but I'd like to use the extra space it in the meantime.

    I was thinking the same thing. My bud has a DInc and he can use his internal memory for whatever he wants.

    Yes it can be used. That's where I keep videos and stuff. Requires root and with root explorer go to the data folder.

    Is root explorer the only app that does it? Thanks

    My thought is to make up for the 8gb SD card....the OG droid had 16gb...seems that the DX and the D2 got short changed in the SD catagory but made up for in the internal. It doesn't matter. I already ordered my 32g for my D2.

    Ummmm, the DX shipped with a 16gb SD card...and at the time, was the only Droid doing so as the DINC and D2 both shipped with 8gb cards pre-installed.

    I don't think the media scan searches for media on the internal phone memory. You can play the video by browsing to it using root explorer and tapping on it though.
