Unhappy Shouldn't I be able to access the microSD via USB on a PC?

I bought a 64GB microSD card for my M8 but when I plug my phone into USB on my computer, the micrsSD card doesn't show up as a drive. My old Droid X worked this way so I assumed the M8 would as well. Am I missing something? I really don't want to use HTC Sync Manager.

Edit: I also don't want to access anything via MTP. I hate MTP! :P

MTP is the default. If you want Mass Storage mode, choose the Disk Drive option from the USB File Sharing option in the Notification drop-down.

I am not seeing an option in the Notification bar. Did some more searching and found that apparently this option was removed from Android when Jelly Bean came out (or maybe removed from Android by HTC when Jelly Bean came out)

Hmm, it seems it mounts internal storage and the sdcard via MTP and I can view them as files, not just media, so maybe it's not so bad after all.

For me the phone comes up in My Computer as a Media Device (WIN7). I can browse the SD card and the phone's internal storage. I was used to having to mount the SD card as a disc to transfer files but this works much nicer.
