Turning the phone on and off.Rebooting my PC.Done both of these multiple times. Have changed settings in "Connect to PC" and re-set them to see if that would make a difference and have clicked and unclicked "Ask me."option on connecting.What is going on? The phone just starts charging, but I cannot get it to show up as a drive.It worked perfectly until I installed Handcent SMS (which I've since uninstalled).And have naturally rebooted the phone several times since.yet it still doesn't work.I'm really at my wits end. I'm using the USB cable that came with the HTC car charger but it surely can't be that but then what is causing it to not work? The only non-standard things I have on my phone are 3G Watchdog and the Astro file manager. Both of which didn't have any impact WRT to mounting the phone.But now, having just bought some music from Amazon on my phone, I can't get my music or photos off the phone onto my PC.
Unable to connect my DINC to my PC to look around, move some files etc.
Yes, I have USB Debugging checked. Yes, I select "mount as disk drive" when prompted.
Appears to be charging just fine after I attach it to my PC, then I go to open Windows Explorer and Explorer sits and spins then crashes. In fact, when I close Explorer and go to my desktop, all I get is the wallpaper (no desktop icons etc). Then, when I unplug my phone, computer acts normally. Same PC that I used to root my phone mind you, so somehow it was able to connect to my phone for that process.
Have rebooted the phone as well, all to no avail. One of the advantages of Android and the DINC is the ability to hook up to a PC and move files around...not being able to do this is becoming a bit of a PITA...
When I plug my Eris into my PC using the USB cord I select "Mount as disc drive" however I cannot find my phone anywhere on my computer. I've tried restarting my computer and my phone and it still doesn't work.
I am running one of the leaked 2.2 OTA Roms, everything has been working fine, except lately, as of a week or two ago, the phone won't mount as Disk Drive unless I reboot, and it wasn't a one time fix, I have to do this every time. I noticed that when I plug the phone into the computer, I don't get the message saying "Charge Only / HTC Sync / Disk Drive / Mobile Broadband Connect etc." And yes, I have it set to ask me every time, and I even set the default connection type to Disk Drive, and still I unplug it and plug it back in and nothing. I know it connected okay, the computer recognizes it as HTC Android device or whatever it calls it, and the orange light lights up on the phone showing that's it's charging, but in my computer all that pops up is a weird optical drive that I can't access.
Does anyone know if there is a app, or phone mod that allows you to access the SD Card on the phone, at the same time as it's being used as a drive.I'm getting tired of transferring things like icons, and wallpaper to my phone, then having to unmount the drive before I can use them. Especially if I'm just trying out new icons.Is it possible to have my desire set to disk drive, and access it at the same time?
Tried connecting my phone via USB for the first time last night. Upon connection Windows popped up an "installing driver" bubble, as it often does with new USB pendrives, and said this was successful. The phone popped up asking how I wanted to connect so I chose the option to mount as a drive. At this point Windows did nothing for a while then, eventually, the removable disk appeared but I couldn't access it. Whenever I tried to open it, it'd try to scan it for 5-10 seconds then give up and ask me to format it.
So i spent half my night downloading new songs on limewire to add them into my evo.. so i keep putting my phone into disk drive but nothing loads and my computer doesnt reconise the usb port..than theres a little lock next to each of the songs i just downloaded so wtf
again i went to open my gallery and it is saying insert SD card. This is the second time this has happened with me and the evo but it has been 2 different evos not the same one. now when i hook it to the computer it wont recognize it as a disk drive and says there was an error and the hardware might not be working right (from the computer it says this) also debugging mode has popped up which i have never seen before when plugging the phone in.
I don't want my EVO to mount to my desktop every time I plug in to my MBP. It is saying "charge only" in the notification panel but yet mounts and makes the SDCARD unusable. USB debugging is disabled. Can anyone figure out why this started?
Years ago, probably way before your time, there was a state of the art computer called a G5. It was so powerful there would never again be the need to upgrade. The OS and software were cutting edge and all who saw were gob smacked. So, the G5 having been discontinued 4 years and 10 days ago, and Tiger under 3 years ago, things are different.I can't connect my phone to my computer through usb or Bluetooth.Is it faulty hardware on my end or are they known to be incompatible?
I just mounted my Evo as a disk drive so I could backup some of my older photos and then delete them from the SD card to free up space. Well I deleted over 1gb of media files and when I unmounted the SD card it still showed the same amount of free space as before.I opened up Astro File Manager to see if I could find the problem and the files were deleted from the various folders but when I clicked the menu button and selected Tools, I went to view the SD card usage and noticed a folder labeled .Trashes which contained the 1+gb of files that I deleted from the card.The problem is, I am unable to clear the .Trashes folder and free up that extre 1gb of space that I should have...Is there something I am doing wrong? How do I get that extra space back because there is no option to delete or clear the .Trashes folder and when the phone is mounted as a disk drive there is no path to that specific (.Trashes) folder.
Monitoring the traffic on the unrEVOked IRC channel, it's clear that there is a ton of confusion about the USB drivers needed, despite the excellent article on the unrEVOked site. I thought I'd maybe add to that or create an alternative article.
There are three different modes in which the Incredible (or the EVO!) can connect to a Windows system: Disk Drive ADB (USB Debugging and ClockworkMod Recovery) BootLoader (while phone is in the HBOOT mode)
The drivers that come with the Android SDK can't do any of it because none of the interfaces for the Incredible are present in the .INF file. The drivers that come with HTC Sync can do #1 and #2, but cannot be used for rooting with unrEVOked because they don't support #3. The following link points to drivers which are universal; they will work for all three purposes on the Incredible (and the EVO as well).
unrEVOked modified USB Driver
You do not have to remove HTC Sync if you have it installed. These drivers will replace the ones that came from HTC Sync and be usable for that as well as rooting. The trick is getting these drivers to replace the ones you have from the Android SDK or HTC Sync or ??? (or simply installing them if you have no drivers yet). The idea is to plug your phone into USB while it's in HBOOT mode, forcing Windows to look for Bootloader drivers. Only the ones here provide that.
Anyway, here's how: Uninstall HTC Sync, DoubleTwist, and DropBox from the PC. Sorry about this. Once these drivers are installed you may reinstall those and they will continue to work. These drivers are universal. Unzip the file, leaving the folder Android USB Driver somewhere like on your desktop Unplug your phone from USB Power down your phone Now simultaneously press the volume DOWN button and the power button, holding till the HBOOT screen appears Now connect the USB cable between the phone and your PC The word HBOOT (blue box with white letters) will change to HBOOT USB PLUG On the EVO, wait till HBOOT cycles through an SD check (10 sec) then select select HBOOT USB at the bottom of the menu (using the vol keys to navigate and power button to select). Thanks to hperry for this. Now look at your Windows Device Manager and see if you already have Android Phone listed for HBOOT as shown in one of the last two images (way) below. To see the Device Manager, right click My Computer, select Manage..., select the Device Manager. If you see the Android Phone, you're ready to root and can skip the rest of this. Otherwise, you do not have HBOOT-capable drivers, and you need to install them. Windows should be looking for drivers now. At this point things may differ between XP and Vista/7.
In XP, the New Hardware Found Wizard should appear. Tell it NOT to use Windows Update, and moving along, tell it to look in a specified location. It will pop up a file open dialog. Navigate to the Android USB Driver folder, click OK then click Next.
For Windows Vista/7 you might not see the New Hardware Found Wizard. Open the Device Manager (Right click My Computer, select Manage..., select the Device Manager). You will see an Android Phone node in the tree with a "caution" icon node beneath it. Right click on the caution-marked node and select Update Driver. Follow through specifying NOT to look in Windows Updatte and Install from a specified location. It will pop up a file open dialog. Navigate to the Android USB Driver folder, click OK, then click Next.
In either case, eventually the driver should install. At this point you have the universal drivers installed for the Incredible. They can also be used with the HTC EVO. Here's what you should see in the Windows Device Manager for each condition:
Phone Running Normally, USB Debugging Enabled, plugged in via USB:
Phone running HBOOT, plugged in via USB:
Phone showing HBOOT

When I connect my Evo to my PC, I get no option asking if I want to mount the SD card as a disk drive. I get no notification at all that my phone is plugged into a PC. Do I need to install HTC Sync before I can do this? The manual does not mention it if so. I have tried changing the default setting from "Charge Only" to "disk drive" but no change. The "Ask Me" option is also enabled.
I've got a HTC Legend and i'm having a problem with plugging it in to charge via usb.
I use a usb dock plugged into my win 7 machine. I've always had it set to "Charge Only" and change it to mount as disk drive when I require.
However, just starting from yesterday, every time I plugged the phone it, it would mount as a disk drive and show up in windows. Strangely though, the phone still shows in the notification bar that it's "Charge only", but i can't access anything on the sd card from the phone. The only way to fix it while it's plugged in is to change it to "DIsk Drive" then back to "Charge only" via the notification bar on the phone.
I've checked the settings and it's definitely still defaulted to "Charge only" in there but obviously it's not doing it!
I am a new member of this group, and have tried to post this question twice already and have not seen my post on this forum for a day now. Moderators, please post it, or if you know this has already been answered before, please provide me a link.
I want to know how my application can mount the microSD disk as the USB mass storage upon receiving UMS_CONNECTED.
Strange noise after tether to PC in disk mode? When I plug my desire into the PC and press disk mode there is a sound its like a static sound and every couple of seconds a whistle and the only way to stop it is to turn the phone off and on.
