How can I put stuff on my internal flash drive? I can't seem to access it. I want to put my music or other things on it, I can only get into my external.

You can't access the internal memory.

I think that's something in the upcoming update... someone mentioned the partition tables not being set up properly. Not for sure though...

Go do a google search for motorola medialink I think it is called, this will allow you to sync your music and photos to your phone's internal storage.

You don't have an internal flash drive, Moto didn't shove one of these inside the phone


As for your internal storage (get your terminology right!), it is ONLY used for app storage. You can't access it or store anything else there.

Don't be too hard on the newbies, it's an honest mistake.

Not being hard on him, just clarifying things. All mistakes are honest, otherwise they'd be called choices.

Wow that was kinda harsh, I am sure he did not mean to imply anything insulting.

We have just have had a rash of issues with newbies jumping in way over their head lately, and those of us that have been here helping out are starting to see a new pattern of the same stuff coming up over and over, and over again, without doing any research on their own. Hence the shortness of the replies lately, that we tend to give now, to a lot of things. Please just excuse us for that, it is not meant as a knock, just that we are a little frustrated with how frustrated people seem to get with things not being farther along for this phone than they are. Those of us, working in here, feel everyones pain, but we also are working hard to make this phone better.

However since you did just get the Atrix 2 you are technically a newbie in this forum, and that is not a slight or a nock, and I knew what you meant earlier about internal storage vs your sd card, and like I had stated medialink is the best choice, but however everyone is correct, that the internal 4GB is just for app storage, and a few other things that only the phone can access.

To be more successful, we all need to work together and not have fighting and so much back and forth, sometimes just let things roll off your back. We are just a frustrated as the rest of you here, about getting things we all want, and we are working towards that, including people like 916x10, remember we give our time freely to make this device better for everyone here, if you eliminate some of us, this phone will die a quick death with development.
