My bad - this is something we should have posted up earlier. This is what's up:
1. The Edison should show up as a ~800MB drive on your computer.
2. If you insert a microSD in the Edison, you should be able to mount the device. I won't have access to my Edison for a while, but it's just a quick UNIX mount operation of the microSD device in /dev/
Note: Will include commands when I get back to my Edison.
Could you also include windows and mac tips please.
Sorry - #2's just on the Edison. Everyone gets to work directly with Linux regardless on what they're working with.
#1 should be plug and play for all platforms though.
Edit: Did I miss the point of your question? Not sure if you meant overall Windows/Mac tips or stuff just specific to this.

From my test case:
After SD card is detected in Edison, mount the SD card by providing following command :
Create a mount path :
root@edison~#: mkdir /mnt/mmc
root@edison~#: mount -t vfat /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt/mmc
mmcblk0 is mount SC card number and p1 is the partition number is the SD card number listed when "fdisk -l" is executed.
UnMount the SD card by providign following command :
sudo unmount /mnt/mmc
Remove the SD card from edison SD card slot and re-insert it again and follow Step 1 to mount the SD card.
Thanks! this helps a lot!
If you plug in Edison to your host machine and it doesn't show up as mass storage, there is a problem and I would like to know more.
Just tried it. It shows up as 767MB of empty disk. i dont see any files.
Was just asking steven about this - will we be able to drag and drop files through this sometime?
The feature is supposed to be integrated at this point - drag/drop should function. Have you attempted it?
That's good! It's supposed to be blank.
Yeah, it's pretty easy to drag files onto the drive. Do you know how to access it from the Edison side?
I'm trying this right now just to verify I'm not giving bad info. Give us a few minutes to be sure something isn't wrong.
Thanks MPayne, this info is very helpful. Are you able to access the 800MB memory from Edison side?
Looking at your mounting instructions, if i'm not mistaken the mmcblk0 is the 4GB eMMC internal storage. Which when trying to mount it, it threw an error.
The SD card appears as mmcblk1 and i was able to mount it using the following commands.
mkdir /mnt/mmc mount -t vfat /dev/mmcblk1p1 /mnt/mmc
As you suggested, just swapping out the mmcblk0p1 by mmcblk1p1
What's the error and what's the size of the microSD card you placed in the Arduino Expansion Board?
