I'd like an answer to this to! How do you just (in droid 1 terms) "mount" the sd card to the computer so you can view and transfer files on it? I hate verizon bloatware, just provide me with cell phone service, don't force your dumb applications on me too!

You have to be rooted and then with your favorite system file browsing app of choice (ie. Root Explorer), you have to rename/move/remove the file: "/system/etc/CDROM.ISO".
If you're comfortable with the adb command line you just want to delete it, do: rm /system/etc/CDROM.ISO
I removed it and have had no issues, but I make no guarantee that you won't.

- connect USB cable to phone, then plug into computer
- computer=pops up "new hardware found...installing drivers"
- computer=VCast Media Manager & HTC Sync pop up shows up..X out of it. you don't need to install this software.
- computer=if it asks to install adb shell, cancel the installation
- computer=should pop up a "found new device, android phone" or similar.
- on the phone, choose "disk drive", then "done". if this box doesn't pop up--then MENU>SETTINGS> CONNECT TO PC>DEFAULT CONNECTION TYPE>tap Disk Drive
- computer=pop up asking you to View files, view pictures, etc... Close this dialogue box.
- computer= Start>My Computer
- computer=then double click on the Removable Drive (can be any Letter of the alphabet)
- computer=you should see the android file heirarchy (DCIM, my flix, my pictures,media)

I discussed this with HTC and Verizon tech support last night. The trigger for this from the TB is a setting for "CD-rom" that is not available to either us or tech support to change. The Incredible had the same problem according to them, but they could alter that setting via the backdoor. HTC said that anything to do with "Vcast" has to be removed from your Verizon account. As Verizon's system was acting up last night, I asked that those changes be made, but can't verify whether thats been done or if it fixed the issue.
HTC tech support acknowledged the problem and said there are "improvements" in the pipeline that we could expect via OTA upgrades. The Verizon rep also put in a request to engineering to reopen their access to that setting. I also made mention of the gross amount of crapware on the phone and he said he would pass that comment along also.
