    Hey everyone!!

    Ive got a new samsung Galaxy S2!! Coming from a HTC Hero its pretty awesome, but...

    16GB memory..
    1GB internal memory...

    I see the 16GB is recognised as USB storage, but when i create a folder under this and stick anything like pictures in there, i cant find them! Gallery then lists nothing avaliable!!

    I dont like that i cant set it to use this area as a default for where my videos/pictures i make with the camera are stored, this means i get a limit of the avaliable free space, and cant specify that it uses the USB storage..

    Is there something i am missing? What is the point of the 16GB file area, if i cant put my pictures and videos there and then access them from Gallery/Videos??

    HELP!!!

    Thanks, but will this not eat up my internal storage?? Id like to make the most of the 16GB, but unsure how i stick things in there, and then access them from the apps!!

    SWEET!!! I got it now, the only shown memory is the 16GB!! :) Yippeee!!

    So under "my files", the actual 16gb is viewed, all pics and videos are automatically saved here, i thought it would be a bit pants if samsung made you move stuff back and forth :)
    I missed the little line at the very top of the app...
    "/sdcard"
    SO silly of me!! :) its defaulting to the root of the SDcard (the one samsung soldered into the device!)

    AWESOME! Thank you so much!!
