    Yep. Got the same view as you connecting my Surround to an XP machine. And Zune reconnected after poking around so no problem there. My guess is there is something on the device side blocking the view of other directories and Microsoft won’t open that up until they have created the proper pipeline to manage it, either within Zune or some other portal like SkyDrive.

    I emailed Word, Excel and PDF files to myself and had no problem saving the Word & Excel files to my device, so I know they are in there somewhere. The Adobe Reader app only opens the file (quite well actually) but there are no options to Save As.

    I also moved a couple files to my device using the WP7 PC Connector app and dropped them in the Dowload folder, which I assume the app created on my device. But when I opened Word and Excel I was unable to see those files. So we may all have to wait a little longer.

    Here’s to hoping something as simple as drag and drop doesn’t require a “How-to” guide in the future.

    @cjc: If you want to be all simple and stuff then stick with Zune ;)

    @David K Simple to me is as follows.

    1)Plugging usb into computer
    2)Selecting open in window when Windows prompts me what I want to do with device.
    3)Dragging said window to the right side so it automatically re-sizes to half the screen.
    4)Opening my media folder to re-size to the left screen.
    5)Dragging whatever I want to wherever I want.

    Forget 3rd party software. I organize everything with folders I name myself. I find my organizational skills far more logical to myself than any software.

    Your hint of irony wasn’t lost by the way :).

    @cjc: If you sync from Zune to WP7 it retains the file fodler structure from your PC. I’m actually not into that cause my PC structure sucks (and I use shortcuts tog et around what I did years ago) so at least your good behaviour will follow through on the phone
