Nice but still won't let me see images Articles led me to believe I could see almost any file or folder on my Droid. Not so. Can't see the "Images" folder or the pics in my "DCIM >> Camera"on my Motorola Razr M with FTPDroid, but I can with Windows Explorer and a cable. Not sure what the reason is for having this. If it's just about losing the cable, who cares? I still have to plug it in to charge it.
