    Still learning my Hero only had it a few days, it came with a 2gig SD card in it. When I hook the phone up via USB cable the SD card shows up in MY COMPUTER but I cannot open/browse it, I tried the card in my old Samsung E900 and its fine I added my music and other files that way.

    I have HTC sync and added some apps I had on PC to the Hero withno problems at all but how to I add other files?
    Get the feeling I am missing something obvious here

    Hi Skirge ,

    When you plug it in , Did you drag down the notification bar {at the top of the screen} and press mount? :)

    When I plug in my magic , I see a removable drive but I can't do anything with it until it is mounted

    Hi, Its simple , You need to go to settings, once plugged in via the usb cable you need to access your notifications menu and select " USB connected" Select to copy files to / from your computer.

    Hope this helps:cool:

    Hi!

    I have a HTC Wildfire and have the same problem except the phone doesn't give me any notification that it's connected to the comp.
    I have checked the "usb deugging" in "development" and in "settings" "connect with PC" i checked the default connection type to be HTC Sync (because I read that I have to do that...) I just got the phone so be gentle with me...

    ...so, as I said, in the notifications there's no such thing as "USB connected" :/

    HALP! :)

    Thanks!

    If you want to transfer files you need to pick 'Disk Drive' (or something to that effect) rather than HTC Sync as your default connection type.

    Saying that, you'd be better off without a default and having it set to ask you every time, so that you can switch between the two types.
