    Currently when i want to ad new files i have to pull out the memory card each time because on my Vita slim it mounts the 1gb internal SD for USB when connected to the PC.

    Is this possible somehow and just something i have overlooked or not figured out ?.

    Enso mounts the SD2Vita at boot now which is great but because we have the Tai folder and its config.txt on ur0 the Vita still thinks the 1gb internal SD is the primary SD.

    You can still use FTP. It's not ideal but it's better than pulling the memory card out each time.

    I dunno about that, I guess it depends how much data you want to transfer at a time. I only get around 2MB/S with FTP, but when I use a card reader I can send upto 30MB/S and that's not even on a particularly fast card.

    Well yeah, but the OP has said that they've done this multiple times already, so each new time is probably only for a (relatively) small amount of data. If you just got your SD2Vita like me the smart thing to do is download all the games you want at the moment and transfer them to the SD card via USB, then use FTP for each new thing you need to transfer.

    I agree that FTP is the ideal way to do it as there is no wear and tear involved such as with USB or removing/inserting SD cards. I just wish the transfer rate wasn't so poor over WiFi.
