    To save the photos directly to the SD card, open the camera app, open the menu, select the gears icon and there will be an option that says: "Storage", change that to "Storage Card", voila! Oh wait, I just re-read what you asked. So you mean it doesn't stay on that setting? You're not by any chance opening up the camera while you have the USB plugged into your computer, are you? I just set it to Storage Card from the beginning and it's been working fine, never had to go back and change it.

    All your photos are belong to us... erm... I mean, you can access all your photos by opening up the "Photos" app.

    Go into your phone settings and make sure the "default connection type" is "Disk drive".

    Then go into "software/Development" and be sure to have the "USB debugging" enabled (checked)

    Then plug your phone into your computer via USB. You should then see 2 new drives in "My Computer". One of them will be the phone's internal storage, and one your SD card.

    Oh dang, I totally misread the OP, but yes, Musky is correct.

    I did what you said, but I still don't see my second hard drive (phone storage). 2 new drives do pop up in Windows Explorer but the 2nd one is blank and cannot open.

    EDIT: Working now. Had to select it also under home screen (top tool bar).

    Thank you guys

    That "usually" means that you don't have USB debugging checked. But some people have had to load the SDK drivers to be able to see the phone storage, but that's uncommon.

    EDIT: Good! Glad you got it working!
