Default How to save to SD card??

Hi all, very new to the Desire so forgive me if these are silly questions.....

Does all apps etc get saved by default to the phone memory or the SD card??

Also, when I plug in via the USB cable and want to transfer some videos and photos across from my old phone, are they saved to the SD card?

Is there any way of checking what is saved to where???

Thanks.....

SteveP

Until 2.2 Froyo comes out all apps install to the phone memory.

When you transfer files over they will be in whatever folder you put them in. In Astro the root of your SD card is home so you should be able to find your folders under there. I have created a media folder on the root with subfolders for music, videos etc. Also I have created an installs folder for putting in app installs.

With regards to what gets stored where its generally up to the app developer to decide.

apps to phone by default unless you root, or when 2.2 comes out
you can back them up to sdcard

photos etc to sdcard, easiest way is plug in usb and select 'mount as disk drive' and done, then open it on pc

or astro file manager (or similar) from market allows you to search sd from fone

So when I mount as hard disk drive, the root directory is the root of the SD card?? (I dont want to fill up the phone memory with rubbish by accident!)
At the moment when I plug it in I get folders such as "MP3", "albumthumbs", ".footprints" etc - so if I create a folder called "Downloads" and dump stuff in there, I assume that will be saving to the SD card??

Thanks again.......

Yeah its only the SD card that you can see when you mount the drive so no need to worry about that.

Just make your own folders for your stuff and stick to those and let everything else manage itself
