    You're not going crazy. You're just not using the right usb connection setting. Bring down the notification bar and click on usb connection and choose the third option. I think it called usb mass storage or something. Then when you open your SD card it will show all you files. It took me a while to figure this out too.

    Maybe it has something to do with putting them in the dcim folder? I made a new folder on the root portion of the sd card and named it videos. I copied some divx encoded files in it and they are still there. I would try moving the video files and see if they still get deleted. As far are dismounting I just change the usb connection to charge only and I havent had any issues so far.
