Connecting to PC to view pictures

Previously, when I would connect my phone to my PC via the USB drive, I would get a notification dialogue box asking me to mount. Now, when I connect to the USB on my computer, the phone shows up as a CD drive named Verizon Mobile. When I click on the drive, all that's there are 4 files name Autorun, ModelName, Samsung_Mobile_USB_Driver, ToolLauncher-Bootstrap. then I get a notification name Media sync connection failed.

 

Why is it doing this all of a sudden and why doesn't it show the folder with my pictures in it

the dl09 update affected the usb mount

you need to enable or diable usb debugging

settings>applications>development

 

first make sure its off

then go into

settings>mass storage and set it to mass storage

then go back and turn debugging on

 

this should allow it to mount.

worked for me

That works, having to have debug on to use an application doesn't seem quite right to me. Maybe that's just a work around until a permanent fix is in place.

 

I see others are having this issue as well

 

Thanks

I can leave USB debugging off and leave my USB connection setting to "Ask on connection" and still link my Fascinate to my PC.  What I need to usually do is tell my phone to connect as a mass media device (when it asks) and then when the USB icon appears on my notification bar, I touch and slide the bar down and tap the USB icon and press Mount to mount the drive.  It's additional steps since before the update, but that lets my PC recognize my phone as a drive and not a CD drive.

 

This is true regardless of whether I use Windows or Ubuntu.
