    I bought a 64GB microSD card for my M8 but when I plug my phone into USB on my computer, the micrsSD card doesn't show up as a drive. My old Droid X worked this way so I assumed the M8 would as well. Am I missing something? I really don't want to use HTC Sync Manager.

    Edit: I also don't want to access anything via MTP. I hate MTP! :p

    MTP is the default. If you want Mass Storage mode, choose the Disk Drive option from the USB File Sharing option in the Notification drop-down.
    KOLIO and Granite1 like this.

    Hmm, it seems it mounts internal storage and the sdcard via MTP and I can view them as files, not just media, so maybe it's not so bad after all.

    For me the phone comes up in My Computer as a Media Device (WIN7). I can browse the SD card and the phone's internal storage. I was used to having to mount the SD card as a disc to transfer files but this works much nicer.
