Total Noob: How do I find my data?

    I've had a Nexus S phone for about 2 weeks. It's my first smart phone. I know nothing about rooting it, and don't plan to.

    I connected it to my PC, created a folder on it, and added some data (like JPG files). How do I access these on the phone?

    I installed Astro File Manager, and when I start I'm inthe "/mnt/sdcard" folder, but the Nexus S doesn't have an SDcard, so where is my data folder? I've been looking around but cannot find any folders that look familiar. I did a search from the root level of the file system but didn't find my photos.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,

    Never mind. I have the answer to my own question. The reason I couldn't see anything in my "/mnt/sdcard" folder was because the phone was still connected to my computer as a USB drive. When I disconnected from my PC, it started working.
