Connecting HTC EVO Shift to Mac - Copy MP3 Files to Micro SD Card

I received my new HTC EVO Shift on Friday and downloaded Radiohead's new album, The King of Limbs, on Saturday. I wanted to get the Radiohead album on my phone and was very disappointed to learn that HTC phones don't connect to Macs.

My recommended hack is to remove your phone's micro SD card and put it into a device that can be recognized by your Mac as a removable storage device. For me, that device is an Olympus STYLUS Tough-6000 digital camera. I successfully copied my Radiohead mp3 files to the root of my phone's  micro SD card by connecting my camera to my Mac and, on my camera, selecting the "Storage" option instead of "MTP" (Media Transfer Protocol). I am now able to listen to Radiohead using my phone's "Music" application. What's more, I can assign individual Radiohead songs as ringtones...suh wheat dude.
