Default Can anyone explain this sdcard issue?

I have a brand-new gsm Galaxy Nexus purchased from Google. I wish to copy pics, videos, etc from PC to phone. I have noted that there are two different ways to see the sdcard as follows:
/sdcard
and
/storage/sdcard0
When accessed they seem to show the same contents. Can anyone explain the difference and which I should use?

Use either. One is a hard link to the other. Like a shortcut, but to the file system the folder actually appears to be at the other/both locations. I think it helps with accessing the storage via MTP when plugged into a computer.

Thanks. Another explanation I read is that one of the locations is a placeholder for the missing external SD card since some apps expect it to be there
