Hi. This is my first post so please forgive me. I just installed the new KitKat Custom ROM by Echoed onto my GT-N8020 Galaxy Note 10.1. I have installed many ROMs on many devices with no problems. ROM installed fine as always but now I have a problem. When I connect to my computer via USB I cannot see the external SD card in My Computer. The internal SD is displayed though. I have tried Googling all day with no luck. All I can find is info on the SD permissions problem etc. Has anyone else had this problem or does anyone know how to fix this as I am stumped. Any help is very much appreciated. Cheers

when you plug it in, does it show up as usb mass storage device, or as mtp device?

first off, it has to be in mtp mode, not camera to even have a chance.
have you tried other cables/ports/cards? try putting the card in only when the tab is already in the pc, or putting the card in a powered off phone and booting up the phone once its connected, or failing that, just use a micro sd card reader.
you can alos try apps like ums for galaxy s3 (from playstore) and see if it works for you.

To enable Mass Storage mode, do the following:

Download Terminal app
Then type this, and press enter after each line:
su
setprop persist.sys.usb.config mass_storage
reboot

After rebooting, plug it in, mount usb storage. If required, format it.

Thumbs up
Thanks guys. Unfortunately I didn't get to try the terminal command as I didn't know about that one. In the end I got rid of Echoes KitKat ROM for n8020 and installed original Cyanogen ROM and voila......all problems gone. Must be a lot of bugs in the Echoe ROM as external SD Card was not visible on computer or even writable to. And 4g was not working.

Thanks for your help guys. I really appreciate it and will have to remember to try your suggestions if this ever happens again. Cheers
