True, technically

And the answer is no to your question, unless you run a SMB server on the phone over your wifi network, then your phone will popup in Finder as a network device. I have tried 3rd party phone apps that do this but the connection is unreliable and transfer speed slow.

Hm, too bad. Guess I'll have to wait and see if anyone builds this functionality!

Do custom roms normally add USB mass storage functionality?

Open DriveDroid app, give it root access and under its settings, change USB or Permanent USB mode to "Mass Storage Android Debugging"

Connect to OSX and open the Android File Manager app on OSX... next time you wont need to open it manually, it will open everytime you connect the phone.

This might break connection to HTC Sync though

(I use the above for my iMac)

Hey, so I have rooted my phone and applied sdfix successfully. Restated my phone, but I still cannot write to the external sd card using airdroid. Do you know what is the problem? Thanks

How? I get an error msg whenever I try.

*edit* more specifically "network error" uploading to the internal sd card works fine

In http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=54035979 I may provide a partial solution; depending on your exact need. Look for the post I sent a few minutes ago. More to come in the next days; I will test other apps, and report.
