    All of the sudden when I connect my Droid to a computer, it immediately mounts the SD card. l don't get the option to mount. Not sure how to correct this so I get prompted to mount the SD card.

    Thanks!

    Do you have doubletwist installed on your phone?

    There's a setting that allows you to turn that off.

    2.2 does this by default.
    I know it's annoying. Is this the issue? I have doubletwist and I disabled that function.

    Really? I'm using Bugless Beast Froyo and it doesn't do this. Are you sure it isn't another app?

    I'm sure. If you pull the notification bar down it should state that the SD is mounted.

    Thanks all for responded.

    Yes, it turns out it was DoubleTwist.

    In my opinion, doing an auto mount of the SD card is not preferred. Where I work, plugging in removeable media places encryption software on the SD card. Since the card did an auto mount, the software got copied but fortunately does not appear to have had impact on my files. Hopefully, in 2.2 this will be optional setting.

    So disable the option (or uninstall). Easy.

    Same here. Running BB 0.2.1. Disabling the auto mount in DoubleTwist prevents this from happening.

    I think you have something else doing this for you. I've not had any of the 2.2 roms do this.
