Unhappy I canīt access sd card contents from the phone

Hi everyone!

New wildfire owner here. I donīt seem to be able to access or even see the contents of my sd card. Replaced the original with a larger one and it recocnizes it but I canīt get any information on whatīs on it or anything. Read I should download a program but I still wonder, doesnīt the phone have any way of producing the contents itself? I formated everything on my sim-card but I donīt think the sd card was involved. I donīt seem to be able to make that option. Should I remove the card and start over?

I have the same problems and have had to send back the cheap SD card I brought on ebay

You can format the sd card, try that. Go to settings > SD & Phone Storage >Format SD Card

You might also want to unmount it and then re-mount it

The only view on the SD Card that is built into the phone as standard is from menu, settings, SD & phone settings... this will tell you the space on the card and the available space. (for example my 8GB card says Total 7.40 GB and 2.76GB free space)

To see the files on the SD card you can plug the phone into your computer with the USB cable and choose the disk option.

Or you can download an explorer app from the market. there are a few good ones. I use ES File Explorer, others on here use AndroXplorer or Astro.

Thank you both for your replies. It was just that information I needed. Now I finally can access my sd card.
