Thanks in advance.
Not that I have found. Stock Sony ROM has an extra "Xperia" option to connect in Mass Storage (MSC) instead of MTP or as Camera (CTP). It makes it like your external SD Card is a regular USB drive. This is why I ditched all other ROMs because there was no proper file transfer mode.
Not sure about Internal system SD card access ... you might have to enable USB debugging for it to read the system SD Card. And perhaps depends on the ROM you are using too.
