Okay well my screen and digitizer are broken. I'm pretty sure I left usb debugging mode always on. I tried downloading kies and plugging it in, but got a connection error saying that the device wasn't in kies mode so it couldn't recognize it.

Also, the internal sd is not visible from my computer, although the computer does play the sound recognizing it being plugged in and trying to download the drivers. Indicating that the sd isn't mounted for access through the computer.

So my problem is, how can I possibly get any internal sd data at this point? I was thinking maybe adb but I'm clueless as to how I would go about doing that. Not to mention, I'm not even sure if adb is the solution I'm looking for...if there is one. Would adb still work even since the computer isn't recognizing it in "my computer"?

My phone is rooted and running some old rom that I don't remember. I had clockwork and voodoo if that even matters.

I know sorry for being a noob. Any help is appreciated

sorry for the double post, but this is a large active forum. 200 views and no answers? I know somebody on here knows the answer to my problem. Tell me if I should post in a different section...

I'm recycling my phone and really want my data that's on the sd and then wipe it after.

Download drivers to Pc. Then see if it can connect. Also I assuming your phone uses Odin. Try putting phone in download mode

You will have to try and get your PC to see your device. If you can't then you are out of luck. This is the big problem with only having internal storage and no SD card.

thanks for the replies. Okay so I have the drivers installed. I installed kies and tried connecting that way but it wouldn't connect saying that the phone wasn't in kies mode (and I have no way of doing that with the broken screen).

I tried setting up adb and droid explorer. Droid explorer said my phone had around 300kb of data on it. The sd card folder was a "link" with a small data size. None of the folders or files were found when clicked on in droid explorer.

Any options at this point?

Got the same problem as you did, just with a samsung galaxy s3, and I have tried all the things listed in this thread, with no luck. Did you find a solution to this?
