I think recent Android versions have shifted from using USB Mass Storage to MTP mode (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Media_Transfer_Protocol).  USB Mass storage is yuck because the phone can't access the storage while it's shared with your PC/headunit/etc.  Which is a pain if you've e.g. uploaded a custom ringtone to your phone, or moved an app's storage to the user storage volume (SD card if you have one).
