    Accessing the SD Card

    Other than hooking up the HTC Evo to a computer as an "external drive", does anyone know how to access the internal SD Card directly from the phone?

    I see that you have no replies. I use the ASTRO File Manager app from the Android Market. I use it all of the time for coying, moving, renaming within the folder structure on the SD card. I think that it will do what you are looking for direct from the phone.

    After you install ASTRO or LINDA MANAGER, Click Here to learn how to root your evo and really get full control!

    Now why didn't I think of looking for an app' for that? Thanks for the tip. I have installed the app' you recommended and it works fine for my intended purpose.

    Again, thanks for your reply.

    Look for an app (Free) Called LINDA MANAGER - it will not only show you the structure of your SD Card (and full access) but also the directory of your hone's built-in memory AND apps AND the ability to kill any of them. Awesome app - another freeware.

    So using Astro, is there a way that I can move an image from the SD card into my picture gallery? I hold down on the picture, menu comes up, I select move and then nothing happens?

    You just need to move the picture to the DCIM folder on your sd card and the pic will automatically appear on your gallery

    First:

    - Launch Atro File Mananger and go to external_sd > DCIM;

    - Press Multi on the toolbar and start tapping once on each picture you would to to move (their title color should be changed when you press on them);

    - When you're done selecting the picture you would like to move, press Edit on the toolbar > select Move;

    - Finally, Press Home on the toolbar > go to DCIM > and press Paste on the toolbar and you're done - your picture should be moved from your external SD card to your internal card.

    Good luck!
