    2.2.2 And have SD transfer question!

    Hi,
    (very) recently escaped the grips of my first apple iphone for numerous reasons i'm sure i don't need to explain here. Got an atrix running 2.2.2, not a bad device at all. Finding pro's and cons to be on the android market, but overall glad i shifted. Rooted recently but haven't made much use of it other than to replace a few sounds etc.

    Noob question regarding android phones, of course the atrix in particular. PC via USB unmounts the SD Card obviously. This means that there is no way to read the SD card without mounting into a card reader? I'm sure this is a commonplace thing with these phones looking n the web, but it really is annoying to a beginner/outsider to have to actually remove the microSD to read it at all! Be kind... need gentle noob type of response, no flames just yet... just yet!

    Once you connect the Atrix to your PC, pull down the notification bar on the phone. Select the USB connection and change to mass storage mode and presto, now you can see the external SD card without taking it out. Just remember to eject the phone from the PC every time or it will auto reboot and you might lose something.

    Thanks Rob... I had done that but u prompted me to look a it again,i see it pops up as an additional drive. I guess what threw me off was that the notification on the phone said the SD card was unmounted! Ta again.
