    Hi all,
    I've purchased a small dongle, for my Galaxy S2, that permits one to connect a micro SD card (in a reader). I've tried doing this and the phone clearly acknowledges the precence of the new USB card and a small icon appears at the top left of the screen. Initially I removed the card and was admonished for not first dismounting the card.
    My question concerns my inability to detect the card in any way on the phone. Where can I find evidence of the drive and how can I use it? Does one have to mount the card or format it before it can be seen? If so, how - I certainly don't want to loose the data on my "internal" transflash card!
    Many thanks from a newbie,
    Graham Cutting

    You should see it in /mnt/sdcard/usbstorage.
