    Hey guys, newbie to androids here, just upgraded from a nokia 2323 (yep, pretty big upgrade). When i connect my phone to the computer, i want to put files on the phone and be able to access them. I have Astro File Manager, but when I go all the way to the top level of folders with that, the folders available are...

    app
    bin
    build
    customize
    etc
    fonts
    framework
    lib
    lost+found
    media
    usr
    xbin

    And when I open the "external drive" (phone) on the computer, all i can see is..

    .bookmark_thumb1
    .footprints
    albumthumbs
    backup
    data
    DCIM
    download
    LOST.DIR
    media
    miner_savegames (from gem miner)
    minerdemo_savegames (from gem miner demo im guessing)
    MP3
    Photofunia (guessing its data for the Photofunia)
    rosie_scroll
    rssreader
    User Manual
    HTCSync_2.0.28 (application)
    robo_defense_full.bak

    My question is how do i get the files into any of those folders?

    I believe the topmost folder you reached is the top folder of the phone Memory, while the external drive you are accessing is the \SDcard folder seen in the topmost folder.

    You cannot access phone memory without root access, only the SD card.

    Not an Astro user myself but looking using ES File Explorer that's the system directory you're looking at. You should be able to go up a level from there where you'll find a sdcard folder. Everything on the sd card should be in there.

    If you're simply looking to copy music and the like to the phone simply drag and drop files to the relevant folders using Windows Explorer. You can create your own if you like, the apps on you phone will find them (unless you have a .nomedia file in the folder).

    HTH :)
