Would ASTRO File Manager help?
It might. I will give it a try.
that's the easiest from the phone. you can also do so by tethering to your computer, then accessing phone and card as mass storage devices and using windows explorer (or finder for mac) to drag and drop files
From my mac I can access the SD card but not the phone. ASTRO File Manager does not let me move files just look at or delete.
I'm working from memory here, as my Android 2 touchscreen stopped working and I've not been able to pay a bill...
The phone will ask for the status when tethered to your computer (Mass Storage, PC Mode, Windows Media Sync, or Charge Only). From Mass Storage, or even when you first connect it, you should see separate devices detected, one for your phone, and one as a storage device or removable drive. If the Mac doesn't detect the phone separately, then you'll have to do it through the phone.
The trick here is knowing where all the files are. File structures vary, depending on manufacturer, but you will want to find the songs in the phone first (I suggest removing the card while you search file folders, so you don't wander into the card by mistake.) Keep notes on your exact path down the rabbit hole, as it will come in handy for (near) future reference. Once you've found the files, and have your card in the phone (best not to remove or insert the card with the phone on, if that's even possible with your phone), then follow the instructions here
. The method of copy or move is a bit tedious, but it can be done.
