Now you see it... now you swear!

When trying to read a Sandisk 16Gb Class 2 Micro SD card (on my Win7 PC through a USB reader) it will show up briefly but as soon as I try to copy any files the drive itself will disappear, meaning I can't save any of the data (or pics) from it, so I'm looking for a way to keep the drive visible to my PC so I can save the data. (The card comes from my Android HTC Desire HD which randomly dismounted itself this morning and now reports itself as 'damaged' in the phone). Any help would be greatly appreciated - thanks in advance!

Android --> iPhone

Awaiting delivery of my iPhone 4S and then I will be switching from Android. What do I need to know to make the switch smoothly? Since this will be the first iPhone I've ever really played with at all, are there any tips/tricks for new users that will help me get up and running faster? I know that which apps are considered "have to's" depends a lot on what you are into, but are there any particular apps that I should be looking at first to help get me started? What do you wish you'd known as you set up your first iPhone/Apple product?

Bricks are a lovely red color, but I still don't want one

I just got a Nook Color for my birthday. It appears to be running v1.1.0 of the Nook software (which is old, n'est pas?). I want to root it, but I'm a complete newb at rooting. I need some handholding and a whole lot of information.

Is there an Android app that will automatically switch on mobile data when I can't access the internet through the wifi connection?

I'm looking for an Android wifi manager app for my HTC Sensation 4G with a specific feature. When my phone thinks it's connected to a wifi network, it automatically turns off mobile data, which makes sense, as long as it's actually connected. Unfortunately, sometime there's something wrong with the wifi connection or the connection is really crappy, and I can't actually access the internet through it. This means that unless I go turn off wifi, I can't access the internet at all. Is there an app that will automatically switch on mobile data when I can't access the internet through the wifi connection?

Android tablet video players that do playlists?

I have my eye on the Acer Iconia A500: it's a snazzy Android tablet at a nice price, with lots of connectivity. The micro HDMI port is a major selling point for me,because I want to use it for playback of video projections for my performances. But before I buy, I need to know that there's a good Android video player app out there that can 1) play videos from a playlist, and 2) transition seamlessly between videos. Any recommendations?
