Default MicroSDHC on official firmware

This has been asked before many times, but my case's kinda different.

I'm planning to buy a 4GB MicroSDHC, but I'm not gonna use it to store music for my Sansa. Basically, all I want to do is transfer files from my computer to the card. What I want to do is use the player as a USB adapter, sort of. I can't do it with Rockbox for some reason, because when I plug it in my computer, the player's screen whites out and then it restarts, and does that in a loop.

So, is it possible to do that?

If you have a version 2 player then yes, if you have a version 1 player then no, not without rockbox...

It's a version 1.

So, is it possible to transfer files from PC to the player when it's booted into Rockbox?

Are you using a current build of Rockbox?

The 3.2 release does not have USB support enabled but the current builds do. That will allow you to have full use of your SDHC card. I use it to not just carry files but to run portable apps right from the card.

I had a stable version installed before. Right now I have the current build and it works awesome.
Thanks for the help.
