    ok so ive looked everywhere on the internet for this. my SD card is full but my phone storage still has room on it. i get most of my songs from bluetooth or i download it on my phone. since my sd card is full its not letting me put on anymore and ive tried many ways of accessing my sd card but there are no files or anything that will show me whats on it. ive even tried pluggin in my phone and trying to move stuff around but it just seems like all the files have nothing in them!!! i do not want to root my phone. my phone is a samsung galaxy 551. any help?

    Welcome to Android Forums!:)

    The first thing I would do is go to the Google Play Store and download and install Astro File Manager.
    It makes transferring files so simple. Good Luck!

    I'm having a similar issue even using astro. Is there a way to make default downloads to the phone storage?

    I don't think it is possible to access the phone storage with a file manager without root.

    Whilst you can't access certain protected partitions and folders, there should be areas you can change without root access.

    I'm having the same issue. I switched from a Blackberry where you are given a choice where to store files to a droid 2 where it just seems to all go to the sd card. I have over 6gb of internal storage and 0 sd card.
