I originally downloaded Card Reader from Pocket Gear, having gotten tired of constantly removing the MicroSD from my Centro to put it in a USB reader - the Centro is a hassle to get cards out, the battery cover must be removed to eject or insert the MicroSD. Rather than go through that every time, Card Reader makes it a breeze: plug it in, launch the program, and bam, it shows right up on the desktop. Though I could never quite figure out the BlueTooth feature (it's not exactly immediately straightforward, and the FAQ on the site is somewhat scant, at least for me), the USB worked like a charm. I would give it a solid 5, but the BlueTooth, as aforementioned, wasn't as easy as, say, Salling Clicker (another excellent piece of software). Nonetheless, it's definitely worth the $11.95 if you're tired of constantly ejecting and inserting cards with a reader =)

I got Bluetooth to work by accessing the Centro with Bluetooth File Exchange. Whereas I believe in the USB mode the Centro's add-on storage card mounts as a volume. Correct? But how on earth (actually: where exactly) do you plug a USB cable into the Centro?? TNX!

Ah yes, enabling Card Reader and launching BlueTooth File Exchange worked for the most part ... and by for the most part, I mean when downloading a photo that was residing on the MicroSD card, it refused to open once on the desktop ... which is strange, as it works perfectly via USB ... oh well, I guess I'll just have to use the traveling USB cable I have when using a computer other than this one =P In response to your question about USB, I actually use a third party USB charging / syncing cable that goes directly into my Mac; it's got a connector on one end which goes in the Centro, and USB on the other.
