    Yes, I've done some searching for answers, none provided a good solution. Hopeful someone has seen this and can help.

    Rooted 2.2, stock kernel etc. No ROM changes (yet).

    Trying to xferr some media files from internal mem to SD card. Shouldn't be this hard!
    - USB Debugging checked, rebooted phone, stock charging cable
    - Connect to PC, select "MOUNT AS DISK" option on phone; AUTOPLAY pops up, but then windows explorer refuses to open and locks up. Only fix is to unplug phone from computer.
    - Booted into Clockwork Recovery and tried to mount system. Now when I plug phone into PC, I show two new drives (good) but then when I click on them in explorer, it says "Please insert a disc into external drive" (BAD).

    I don't think this should be that tough! Is this a rooted phone issue? A windows issue? A general Android OS issue? Any help appreciated. Thanks.

    Interestingly...when I select "Mount USB Storage" on Clockwork Mod, I can use windows to explore my SD card...but still no joy on the phone's internal storage.

    That is very strange... I don't have stock anything so I can't try to recreate what you are seeing. Sorry.

    I use "Root Explorer" and just hit the "mount" button and move what I want between the card and the internal memory. But if you're not trying to move or change a system file, you shouldn't even need to mount or unmount. Before I rooted, I moved all my MP3's to my phones internal memory to free up my SD card.
