    For anyone that has not seen this, there is a new file manager app called Discover that lets you log into your wifi connected phone thru any web browser on the same network. It allows full wireless transfers as well as copying or deleting files and works (so far) flawlessly. Definitely worth a look if you transfer alot of files between your G1 and your computer.

    I started playing about with this on Thursday night/Friday Morning and must admit I have been mightily impressed with it. Works bloody well and saves having to hook up all the time via the cable. definitely a 5* application for me

    I downloaded this app yesterday and moved some images from my PC to my phone. When I went to look at the images, they did not show up in the photo album. I checked in afile and they did show up in the app, they also showed up in Astro. I had to restart the phone for the images to show up in the photo album and set it as my wallpaper.

    I tried again and had the same problem; this time instead of restarting the phone, I hooked my phone up through USB and the disconnested right away ... the images showed up.

    Is there a setting or another app that refreshes the SD card? Seems pointless to move the files using the Wifi only to need a restart or a USB hookup to see the files.

    Do you find aFile is better for this than Estrong's file manager? I haven't tried either yet.
