MTP only USB access for encrypted SD card
I recently decided to encrypt the phone and SD card "just in case". It seems there is no loss of functionality and the Z1 Compact is sufficiently fast; I did not see any slowdown or any other adverse effects after encrypting. Until today.
Today I decided to move things around on the SD card and connected to the PC through the USB cable. It connected in MTP mode. Annoyed, I went to the menu to change the settings again into the Mass Transfer. And the menu is gone. There is no more a menu to select the USB transfer mode.
Pop out the encrypted card, put in another, the menu reappears. Slot in the encrypted one - the menu disappears. So it seems that the only way to access an encrypted SD card is through the MTP. Nuts.
Through searching I could not find any information whatsoever on the subject. Any tricks to help?..
