    So, I updated from 2.1 to 2.2 (Using the force method on this site), and now my USB cable will not allow file transfer. This kind of sucks, seeing as how I used that to put the update.zip on the phone in the first place.

    Now, I need a way to transfer files between my Windows 7 PC, and my Froyo Droid.

    I've looked through the forums a bit, and I've seen someone suggest ES File Explorer for this purpose. I searched the market, and I wasn't able to find it. Does anyone have an alternate suggestion, or a way for me to get this one to see if it will work?

    Edit: I just tried using WebSharing Lite... As far as I can tell, it doesn't allow me to put files onto the phone. Can anyone clarify?

    this is free from the market. it requires the use of a FTP client on the PC as well. maybe windows 7 has this built in idk. but if not once you add thatit's relatively easy to setup, and allows you to connect to your phone via wifi, and transfer even large files....

    You may also want to check out Dropbox, and Homepipe (which is what I use).

    Thanks for the suggestions, ES File Explorer looks to be exactly what I need.

    I've tried the majority of these apps (Thank you all), save only the ones using FTP because I am a total noob. Dropbox is useful in its own way, and I'm sure I will be able to find a use for it. Wifi file explorer, also works but may have its own alternate purposes.

    If someone would give me a tutorial for FTP, I may end up preferring those ones, but until then, I can deal with using Wifi File Explorer.
