I have just got a new Samsung phone (Galaxy S) and it simply will not connect to my laptop in mass storage mode. Although it's not complicated I am following the manual instructions to the letter - but zilch. I just don't understand it - maybe I'm doing something incredibly stupid but ????. Suggestions much appreciated.




Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Go to Settings --> About phone --> USB and set it to ask on connection for what type of connection to use. Then connect and select mass memory. Then go to the notification tray and mount the drives from there. Viola!

Took me a tiny while to find out that on my Galaxy S too, rather non-intuitive spot to hide the USB connection mode options...

Thanks - have been doing what you say in first two sentences but not sure what you mean by "go to the notification tray and mount the drives from there".

When you connect you need to drag down the notification tray from the top of the screen, click on the "USB Connected" notification, then it will prompt you to mount the drive/s.

The notification tray is the same thing you drag down to access WiFi on/off, app installation notifications etc.

Got it - many thanks. I had no idea about that - did not know you could, and needed to, drag etc. Must be an Android thing? My previous phone (Nokia 5800 = Symbian) had nothing like that. Much appreciated.
