    Welcome to the AndroidForums, uncool.

    Can you tell us what Android device you have?

    I don't know if you know this, but there is a pull-down "shade" that at the top of the screen that you can use to put the SD card in "USB Mass Storage" or "Mount as Disk Drive" mode.

    Make sure you device is connected via the USB cable, then touch the top of the screen and drag down. You should see a few sections, one of which is labeled "Ongoing" with a "USB connection" section. Touch the "USB connection" section, then select "USB Mass Storage" (or similar option). Hopefully, when you do this, your computer will automatically recognize your phone's SD card so you can explore it.

    If the above doesn't help (or you already knew it), but sure to let us know what device you have so we can direct you to the proper forum where the folks that have your same device might already have experienced the same issue as you (and possibly have a solution).
