    i have apk files on my home computer. once i usb connect my verizon droid 2.0 i mount it. where do i click and drag my files to put them on the micro sd card. do i put the apk file in the root folder, the "android" folder or the "downloads" folder.

    it seems easy but i cannot seem to get the apps from my home comp. to my droid. thanks

    you can put then anywhere on the phone, preferably on the storage card. then use a file manager program to open the apk file.

    Right. With Astro, I put them in the downloads > apps folder. Then in Astro you can just go to backed-up apps in Astro's tools and hit install. Keeps them all in one tidy place.
