    When I plug my motorola droid into my computer it recognizes the drive. But when I try to open it, it says: "no media present" . I have tried this on a vista and xp machine same results. I unmounted the sd card. Then reformatted it. Same results. Also is there a trick on how to remove it from the phone? I tried just pulling on it put its in there pretty good.

    Did you tell the droid to "mount usb" after you plugged it into the computer?

    OK, Just got off the phone with Motorola. I had to drag the usb icon on the phone down. Top left corner. Then a dilaog box comes up to mount the drive. It works now. About 20 min wait. Not native english speaker but he was excellent!
    I did find a user manual on the web, I never got one with the phone. And it descibes tapping the usb icon, not dragging thats where I fould up.

    Thanks Robobandit. It never prompted me for that though.
