    Okay so... I was told this phone could play avi movies. I have no idea where to put them.

    I plug the phone in via USB. Select "disk drive" as the connection type. I open the folder and.... there's no "videos" folder. I tried adding one and putting movies in there. I tried putting them directly into the root folder. Neither the "gallery" and "videos" app can see the videos. IT says there are no videos on the phone.

    So my question is... where in the balls do I put these things to play them?

    Can it play avi files? I thought they had to be mp4 files for video.

    The evo can play mp4 files at 800x480 or 1280x720 resolution. You can put the videos anywhere on the sd card and the phone will find them.
