Android SD Card on computer

This might be really really obvious to everyone else, but it wasn't obvious to me.

In order to access your SD card from your Android phone on your computer, there are a couple of things you need to do.

1) Attach the phone using a USB cable.
2) Open the Notifications bar,
3) Click the USB one
4) Select 'mount' when it asks you if you want to see the files on your PC.

I only put this here because I'd spent a fruitless 30 minutes mucking around in the settings, trying to do this, but nothing seemed to work.

Hopefully, it'll be useful to you.

Thank you sir, I was snooping around google for about an hour before I found this! I didn't even connect the notify bar with my computer.

Make sure you disable USB Debugging mode for this to work too
