I just got my Note 2 yesterday, haven't rooted it or anything (yet) and I'm having an issue connecting it to my car stereo via usb. The stereo says USB not available, but when I connect either of my Skyrockets (one stock No root, the other on Embryo 6.4) they connect almost immediately. Any ideas?

Re: Note 2 won't connect to car stereo via USB
Well you're no help man lol jk.

I'll trouble shoot it tonight. I think it's something with the way it connects because it says "connected as a media device" which is something I'm not familiar with. I'm used to phones simply saying "usb connected".

Something else I've noticed is when I connect it to the pc only the internal storage is visible but my sd card isn't. I'm sure that's been addressed somewhere already but idk.

Re: Note 2 won't connect to car stereo via USB
Try blutooth...thats how mine operates
All u need to talk through your stereo.... is a lil mic.
U just run the mic through your dash and up your left dash pannel or whenever u choose to mount.

Re: Note 2 won't connect to car stereo via USB
Chances are the stereo is expecting UMS connections rather than the MTP/PTP the n2 is providing. This is why you see the phone as a device on windows rather than as drives.

UMS: usb mass storage
Mtp/ptp: media/photo transfer protocol

(Please correct me if I borked those names)

Also, threw / through.

Re: Note 2 won't connect to car stereo via USB
Yeah, I did a quick Google search and read that Samsung disabled usb mass storage on newer devices. Pretty stupid, but it explains everything. Thanks for the help guys.
