    Hi Zolah, on the phone, pull down the notification bar at the top of the screen, click the USB option and click 'Mount'

    To take it off the PC, eject it on your PC, then go back to the notification bar and 'Turn off USB'

    :)

    Those are the files on your SD card, so you should now be seeing files such as Android, DCIM, files with the names of your apps. Are these there? If not there might be a driver issue.

    I'll be the guy to ask the obvious......

    are you using 2.2 (Froyo) OR are you rooted and using a custom rom with A2SD

    if youre still on 2.1 (or lower) and unrooted then you cannot put apps on your SD

    you can't put apps on sdcard until you get updated to 2.2, unless you root.
