    Does anyone know if there's a file viewer/manager that actually lets you see all the files on your SD card and rename them, etc.?

    Thanks, will check it.

    What about the term "Operating System" did Android miss here? File managment is like one of the most basic functions of any operating system....

    I don't know if you are rooted are not, but if you are you could try root explorer, works pretty well for me.

    i used astro till i got EStrong on the ROM i use. i like this better. seems a bit friendlier and easier to use. i dont know if it is pay or not, cause like i said i got it in a ROM. root explorer is ok as well but i prefer EStrong to it

    Estrong easily trumps Astro. Though Estrong hints at being able to mount the file system as root, it only works for a very select (2) roms, so there's still a reason for root explorer. If I were able to delete/move system apps with it, Estrong would be the file explorer to rule them all!
