Default [Q] Z1C mount as USB Mass Storage?

Hi guys, coming from a Samsung GS2 I used to be able to mount the phone as Mass Storage USB, and windows will recognise it like a USB drive.

Now with the Z1C I can only view this as a Portable Music Player, and I can still browse files but it is through the ADB interface driver, and is extremely slow and for some reason does not pickup all the files on my internal and external SD cards.

Is there a setting somewhere that I can make Mass Storage activated?

(Phone is rooted, unlocked bootloader, running Resurrection ROM)

Cheers.

Thanks for the advice ... for the life of me, I get no such option "xperia connectivity" not in any sub-screen ??

Possibly gone with installation of Resurrection custom ROM?

Thanks for that, yeah I just reflashed from scratch, went through the entire procedure and have not installed custom ROM just yet and I now see this setting option ... does anyone know whether the ROMAUR custom ROM retains the Xperia Settings option? Or if there is a custom ROM that retains/allows this USB mass storage mode?

I assume this is one of the Sony only options (being an Xperia setting) ... maybe someone could patch it back into these custom ROMs?

On AOSP ROMs you find those USB transfer options usually under:
System Settings -> Storage -> Press menu button or the 3 dots in the right upper corner -> "USB computer connection"
