    I want to copy MP3's over to my new Charge. Where do I put them? When I mount the SD card, I do not see any folder for music....do I just drop them in the root directory of the SD card?

    Create a directory on your sd card of media/image, media/music & media/video and place the appropriate files in them.

    sdcard/media/image
    sdcard/media/music
    sdcard/media/video

    I usually create a folder called music in the root of the sdcard then a folder inside music with the name of the artist. Inside that I put folders named after each album and then the mp3 files in there. And if you have problems getting album art to show you can drop a JPEG of the album cover (or any picture) and name it albumart.jpg

    OK - I created the new directory and folders and placed all the files there. Worked great! Now I understand what "media scanning" is. THanks for all the help.
