There are three ways to perform this action:

1) As a USB removable disk.

Connect 770 to PC with the provided USB cable, and power-on the device. 
This will cause the 770 to act as a standard removable device. On windowsXP 
this will cause the 770 to show as a removable disk, and on Linux you could 
use the command-line utility pumount ("man pumount") or the tools provided by 
your desktop environtment and HAL (KDE's kicker applet "storage media" or 
gnome's equivalent).

2) Network-based

When networking is enabled there are infinite options to copy data from/to 
other computers or Internet (using mail or webmail perhaps the more obvious 

For example, you coud install the excellent Dropbear SSH client and server  
[ https://maemo.org/maemowiki/InstallSsh ]. After this, you could use

scp MY_FILE user at 770_CURRENT_IP_ADDRESS:/media/mmc1

To copy files to the mmc card (reverse the arguments order to copy FROM the 
770 to disk). You could know the current IP number of 770 via the connection 
manager -> Internet connection -> IP address.
