    I've searched around and couldn't find how to do it on the phone? Do I have to use HTC Sync to manually move it?

    You might try using astro file manager. It's available in the market. Then just copy and paste to your card. Otherwise you may plug your phone into your computer via your usb sync cable and drag the file over.

    1) Plug in via USB
    2) Select "Mount" on your phone

    You'll have two drives mounted in Explorer. No need to use HTC sync or anything

    Why even copy it to the SDcard... its WAY easier to plug into USB and mount the internal memory and SDcard anyhow. Even most printers or photo printers support USB now. I hope your not ripping your phone apart to get the SDcard (=

    I notice this thread speaks of using the mount mechanism to mount the SD card and make it visible tothe PC.

    Can anyone tell me what mechanism in the NDK/SDK the mount mechanism uses. I want to mount and unmount the SDCard from the PC from an App

    Thanks

    that worked nicely! i had to default to sync and when i changed the option to ask me instead, i chose the mount option. for my computer M: is the SD card and N: is the internal memory. :D

    BTW: can i change/label the internal memory's name?

    I have a similar issue. Mine can find my phone when I plug it in, but I can't access the drive on my computer. Am I not supposed to?

    Open your notification area on the phone. It will have a USB dialog showing various options. The default is Charge Only, which would not allow your comupter to access the phone storage.

    Change to the Disk Drive option, and you will be able to access them. To be safe, change back to Charge Only before disconnecting the phone.

    Thank You Tweaked,

    What I am really looking for is information on how Apps like Astro File Manager mount and dismount the SD. So lower level stuf.

    I need to do it with my App.

    I think this might be helpful. On my HTC Incredible, my mothers and my wifes, couldn't get to internal storage when set as Disk Drive before plugging in USB cable to PC. While plugged in had to change to charge mode then back to disk drive mode to see files.

    This problem was with XP, Vista and Windows 7 so doubt it's the Windows OS but instead a bug with the phone.

    I searched everywhere and never found this addressed.
