    I want to move a PDF file onto my miniSD card, but what folder do I put it in?
    I have inside a "DCIM" folder...
    "100ANDRO" seems to be empty
    "100MEDIA" seems to be my camera pictures, since my sense UI update.
    "camera" seems to be my old camera pictures, before sense UI
    "VIDEO" seems to be empty, I assume any video I take would go here.

    Where the DCIM folder is I have a couple others, download, ime, reware, rosie_scroll. Should I make the folder in this part? or in one of those folders?

    Can I just make folders? Change their name?


    I have an HTC Magic if that matters.

    Yes, you can create new folders/rename them, just as you can on any other data storage.

    The DCIM folder is your camara storage folder. Your SD card is like your home folder on Linux or your my documents folder in Windows. Like both of those it contains application data folders but it's also where you store your documents. You can put stuff where ever you like and you can create folders and structure them how ever you like.
