HTC EVO 4G :: Tip For Using SD Card From Phone While Charging From PC

Jun 7, 2010

After a lot of digging around on the forums I found a tip for a problem that I find very aggravating.Problem: When you plug your phone into a PC, even if you choose charge only, the SD card is shared over the USB to the PC and you cannot access it directly from the phone. This has just got to be a bug, and as an aside...anyone know if this is fixed in froyo? Workaround: If instead of charge only, you select share out as a usb drive(or whatever that option is), you can then click on the icon at the top left of the home screen that shows new alerts and current running apps and select that same option again. The same screen comes up and you can then change it back to charge only.When you do this, the SD card is unshared and can be used normally on the phone.

HTC Incredible :: Cannot Access SD Card While Charging

Sep 10, 2010

Since doing the OTA Froyo update on my Incredible I can not access the SD card when charging. I have gone into Settings > Connect to PC and default connection is set to Charging only. I have tried it with "Ask Me" both checked and unchecked, pulled the battery, etc. When connecting power it doesn't ask anyway as it knows it's power and not a computer connection. But as soon as any charger (have multiple chargers) is connected the SD card is unmounted. Unplugging power shows the sd card remounting. It's a big probably because if you want to let's say listen to a podcast or music on the sd card, I cant charge the phone at the same time.

HTC Desire : SD Card Unavailable While Charging

May 14, 2010

whenever I connect the phone to any PC for charging (and yes I am selecting the Charge Only option ), the SD card becomes unavailable for the phone to use - e.g music playback stops etc. Is this just one of those 'features' I have to live with or am I missing something? Interestingly when I connect, even though I do select charge only, the PC still pops up with the usual Autorun options - I guess this is related but dont see how the PC should be able to recognise the card in charge mode?

HTC Desire :: After Charging Notifies Preparing SD Card

Nov 16, 2010

Android Version: 2.2
Network: Telstra NextG
Taskiller Used?: Advanced Task Cleaner installed but not normally used to kill/FC
Are You rooted & which Rom: not rooted - stock

Recently upgraded to Froyo, which is when this problem started occurring. After removing the charger, the Desire notifies that it is Preparing SD Card (in other words mounting it). This means Apps2SD is a no go, as it stops any app installed this way, when is mounts the SD card.

HTC Incredible :: No Memory Card Access While Charging?

May 6, 2010

When I'm charging my phone, it doesn't see my memory card, so when the phone rings while it's being charged, I don't get the song I chose as my ringtone (which is stored on the memory card) but rings with a default standard tone.

Samsung Epic 4G :: Sd Card Mount Or Keep In Charging Mode?

Nov 4, 2010

I've tried both the manual method as well as the Easy, one-click, auto root out there, but I can't get root to take on this device. I think I'm probably overlooking something simple. What I need to know is. Well, everything from start to finish. When I connect to my PC, I have enabled USB debugging. Should I allow the SD card to mount or keep is in "charging" mode? I have experience with the manual methods where you access ADB Shell and copy/paste commands. That's how I rooted my Hero. But I think the connection is not right somehow. I'm seeing a lot of failure messages.

HTC Desire : Put Apps On SD Card With 2.2 Update / Battery Not Fully Charging

Nov 9, 2010

I've had my HTC Desire for about 2 weeks. I have searched through the forums for info...but between threads getting off track or just not understanding anything, I thought it would be easier to ask basic questions about my particular issues.

1) What is root? I have the 2.2 update, I am happy enough with HTC and my carrier (Telus) and I don't need tonnes of room right now.

2) Speaking of room, I try to put my apps on my SD card with the 2.2 update but only Google Earth and Night Sky are able to do it. All of my icon packs etc. wont go to SD. I'm pretty sure I have lots of room left so I dont think this is a huge issue.

3) Battery issues. I didn't do the first full charge as I had to use the phone asap when I bought it. I don't have much going on with my phone, no active wallpapers, just weather toggle and clock, text and a few phone calls, check a couple websites, maybe a video here and there, and sometime use GPS for maps. I keep my screen on zero percent and I soft touch the power button to go black screen when i'm idle. I turn off gps and wifi when not using them. With that said, I cant keep the phone idle and off charge overnight without it going to zero. After a charge I lose 10-20% in the first hour. I have never lasted a day on a full charge.

4) After playing around with customizing my phone with icons and widgets I am done. All I need this phone to do is make phones calls, text and check my favorite websites. I use my tracks when I go running and listen to music when I run. Thats all I want it to do. Its a phone so I would love if it could keep a charge in case of an emergency. I was late for dinner the other night because my battery died and I couldn't even call to say I was late! so....

5) What do you recommend I do with my phone to keep it as basic as possible and powered up?

6) What are the key apps to make this the best user experience?

7) When in my pocket I lock screen but once I found that I had 23 unsuccessful attempts to open screen from jiggling around in my pocket lol. Is there anything to help me with that?

HTC Desire :: Charging Your Phone In Car

Jun 18, 2010

I have had my Desire for a few days now, and yesterday we decided to go out for a drive, so I thought I would use the Sat Nav to get us about (NDrive). The battery in the phone was about half charged. Was listening to music whilst using the sat nav, and when we arrived at our destination, the battery was still reading half charge - even though it had been charging for over an hour in the car.

HTC Desire :: Overheating While Phone On Charging

Jun 3, 2010

I have had my HTC Desire, so I have had it for too long, yesterday it was a hot day and I put my phone in charge whilst it was on with mobile internet on, and was on my bed just under the cover and I completely forgot about it, when i come back after around 7-8 hours the phone is extremely hot and I can smell the phone. I looked at the phone and the battery had only 2 percent charge left which is odd considering it had been in charge for around 7 hours and was very slow like sliding from home screen to home screen was painfully slow, once I left the phone to cool and gave it a charge to 100% I turned the phone back on to find the phone was and still is very slow, also by hot I mean a good 60 degrees hot. Do you think I have done any permanent damage to the phone and that it will never be fast again? Also have I damaged the battery? Can any of the phones get internals damaged by this? Anyone had any overheating issues or problems resulting from this?

Samsung Fascinate :: Can't Use Phone While It Is Charging

When the phone is charging, the "alarm clock plus" app page comes up. When I try to click out to perform any function, it goes back to that page. I am sometimes able to complete another operation, but usually the phone goes back to the "alarm clock plus" page before I can complete it. Any ideas?

HTC Droid Eris :: Phone Says It's Charging But Its Not

Aug 20, 2010

I just bought a used Eris off of Ebay to hold me over until January or so. It came rooted with the XTRsense rom, overclocked, apps2sd, etc. The phone runs great and the battery life seems decent, however, it won't charge. When I plug it in, the battery icon shows that it's charging, but when I unplug it, the battery is still at the same percentage. I left it charging overnight last night, and it was still at like 40% life this morning. Any ideas as to what could be causing this? If it's hardware related, I don't mind popping it open if it saves me from dealing with the hassle of returning this phone and going back to my Storm.

Samsung Captivate :: Charging While Phone Is Off

Jul 19, 2010

So, got my Captivate yesterday.. first Android device (and loving it). Noticed something weird, when i went to bed last night it was at 50% battery, turned the phone off and plugged it in figuring it would charge overnight. however when I turned it on this morning the battery was at 10%. Not sure if this was just a fluke or not (i'm assuming fluke since I don't see any other posts on it). Can't see why it wouldn't of charged, let alone drain the battery.. any ideas? I can assure you it was off all night.So does this phone only charge when on? Something specific to Android or just a fluke maybe something i should think about a return trip to at&t for? Gona see what happens tonight when I do the same thing.

HTC Incredible :: Phone Overheating While Charging

May 8, 2010

I was charging my incredible today and after a few hours I noticed the red led light blinking. Thinking it was a missed call I picked it up and noticed it was really hot! I have battery snap app and when I checked the status it said the battery was overheating. I had it plugged into the wall charger that came with the phone. Is this normal? It wasn't charging that long...maybe 4 or 5 hours. I'm worried about leaving my phone on the charger at night time (which is usually when I charge my phones). Does the standard charger not have one of those chips that keeps the battery from over charging? Also, when I took the phone off the charger after noticing it was hot, the battery widget said it dropped from 100% to about 90% after only 10 min. Did I screw up my battery? If so, please tell me it's covered under the insurance.

LG Ally :: How To Turn Off Phone When Charging

Sep 9, 2010

I just got my LG Ally this past week, and I love it, but the thing is a power sucker. On my old phone (basic, no internet/data) I could go all week without charging it, this thing needs charging every other day! END RANT But that is aside the point. My problem is the phone won't stay turned off when I charge it. I plug it in, hold down the end call button, and shut it off. Then it turns right back on! Anyone know how to fix this?
