    Wasn't sure if this should be in the troubleshooting section, since there might not be anything wrong. When I mount my EVO, all I see is my 8 gig micro SD card and no other volume. I was assuming that if I wanted to root, I'd need to actually see the EVO its self and not just the SD card.

    Thoughts ?

    Nope all you'll see is the sd card.

    No, it does not mount the internal memory and you don't need to, in order to root.

    Ok, cool. Thanks guys. I was told by another Android user (whom I think owns an Dinc) that his mounts two drives, so just wanted to clarify.

    I don't think the Incredible does, but some devices do, because they have a lot of internal storage for media like videos, etc.

    Maybe I'm wrong and thought it was because of something I read quickly in passing over his IM's. Guess it doesn't matter at this point though. Thanks again!

    Edit: No, reading over his message to me, I see that he does in fact have an Incredible.

    The Dinc has 8GB of internal storage. That, wimax, the screen/size and carrier installed crapware are about the only differences between it and the Evo.
