    Where is the SD Card on the LG GT540 in menu:thinking:

    How do you download photos/ games/ data files etc and save to SD Card to look up when needed. l cannot find it anywhere.

    You need a file manager, as Android doesn't have a built-in file manager.. Astro File Manager is recommened...

    To copy files to SD, connect it with USB with your PC.. Drag the notification bar>tap on 'USB Connected' & Select Mount... Now, you should see your SD as a removable driver in your PC...

    Hi Nirob, l've done what you said and downloaded pictures and videos to the phone and it's saved straight on the Gallery . l do not seem to have a seperate folder that says external sd card like my other LG Shine did. So l cannot download straight from computer to SD card then:thinking: and there's no external SD file :thinking::thinking::thinking:

    When you open Astro, you are already in SD... Check the top bar, it says ''/sdcard''... Now, if you press the Up button in Astro, you'll be in Phone Memory(Don't touch anything here).. Scroll down & select 'sdcard'.. You are back to SD again...

    Do the way I said, it connects the SD inside your device as Mass Storage... And when you copy the pictures & videos in SD card... They'll show up in Gallery altogether no matter where you copy them...

    When you mount the SD from your phone to your pc it shows up as removable disc, whatever file you move in this removable disc will be available from your phone when you unmount the sd card. Just don't mess with the default folders.
