    If I'm understanding you right you just want to be able to connect your phone to your laptop. What do you need to access the sdcard?

    You shouldn't need any app just try connecting your phone to your laptop and select disk drive as your connection option (should pop up on phone when connected)

    Default Tethering perhaps

    Do you want to use your Droid as a modem to connect your laptop to the Internet? If so you need a data cable, drivers on your laptop for your phone, and an app to connect. I use Easy Tether.

    As stated above, if all you want to do is see and transfer files to your SD card then you don't need any software, just a driver and the data cable.

    Welcome aboard.
    What are your intentions?
    It seems to me that the rep didn't want you to waste money paying for tethering and that you could use easy tether or pdanet.

    You should be able to use PDA net from the market which is free to get your laptop online using your phone. After you download the app connect your phone to pc and follow the instructions from the app.

    I don't mean to hijack this thread but PDA Net is no longer in the
    Market. Anyone know how I can get it?

    Does not have wireless what? The Droid has 3G, WiFi and bluetooth. What "wireless" are you referring to?
