LOL, not a problem, CanadianJ, welcome to the AndroidForums .
It sounds like you might still be in "charge-only" mode instead of "mount as disk-drive" mode. Try this:
1) make sure you USB cable is connect between your phone and your PC
2) pull down the notification shade (touch and drag down the very top section of the screen)
3) touch the section in the Ongoing area labled "USB connection"
4) select "USB Mass Storage" and then press the "OK" button
This should make the files on your phone accessible by your PC (your PC will probably auto-prompt you asking if you want to explore your phone's removable disk drive).
Be sure to do a "safe-eject" on your PC before unplugging the USB cable if you modify anything that was in your phone's SD card.
Also, after you are done accessing the phone's SD card from your PC, don't forget to put the phone back in "Charge Only" mode.
If the above doesn't work for you, then you're best bet would be to post a thread in your phone's home forum since the folks there know your phone the best:
Samsung Galaxy 551 - Android Forums
Cheers and again, welcome to AF!
Don't worry about it, welcome to the forums!
Hopefully the advice SA gave works. If not, you'll find the answer in the Galaxy 551 forums.
