    How do I access the files that are on my microsd card? (motorola droid)

    I've ony had the droid for a few weeks.. and I have no idea how to do this, lol. It was pretty simple with my BB Storm. But I don't see an option anywhere for it. Please help the blind!


    thanks

    From a PC: Plug in the USB cable to the Droid and into the PC. The PC should install the drivers and you will see a USB icon notifications on the Droid. Just drag down the notification bar, select the USB notification and select Mount. You will lose access to the card on the phone, but your PC should now see it as a removable device. It works just like a flash drive otherwise. Just remove it when your done and the phone will recognize it again.

    From the phone itself. Download the Astro File Manager from the Android Market. Does a pretty good job if you need to do file management on the phone itself.
     
  3. of course there are plenty of alternatives to astro - such as oi file manager or estrongs

    Yep. I prefer root explorer myself, but that's only because I'm rooted, of course. :D:D

    Rule of thumb: if it doesn't meet your needs/wants, try hitting the Market for a solution. Better yet, hit the Apps subforum on your preferred Android forum sites for suggestions.
