    transferring stuff to mini SD card with Mac's "Browse Device" bluetooth function

    hey i'm a really new Q user so there may be a very simple answer to my question. I just got my mini SD card and it shows up as "storage device" in the file manager and in memory info it shows up just fine. I can transfer stuff to the device within the phone however:

    How do i transfer files/access this folder using the bluetooth "browse device" function on macs? It only lets me browse my "My Documents" folder. I tried moving my "My Documents" folder to my storage device, and now when i choose "Browse Device" on my mac, im not even sure what folder i'm looking at (it's blank).

    Thanks

    Registry Hack

    Moving the folder was a bad idea. You should put it back.

    The default Bluetooth implementation uses the \My Documents folder as the Bluetooth root. If you want a different default, there's a registry hack you can do.

    Glad it worked. Don't forget to boost the hack author's reputation (and maybe mine for pointing you to it). :wink: See my signature for details.

    You'll need to get MarkSpace's MissingSync for Windows. This will allow you to mount the Q on your desktop and access all the folders. You need to have OSX 10.4.8 (Tiger) as your current OS. Although bluetooth transfer is slow. When I want to load movies, I just take my miniSD out and plug it into a reader and copy. Much faster than bluetooth.
