I'm having problems connecting my phone to the computer with a USB.
The first problem is making the phone aware that it is connected to the computer. If I have the phone already on and connect it, it will start charging, but the notification bar won't tell me it's connected. To solve this, I found out that I have to turn the phone on while it's ALREADY connected. I think this could indicate some kind of problem. Doing this I'm able to tell the phone to mount the SD card.
But my second problem is that I can't get it to mount in my computer if I choose Mass Storage. I tried on 2 computers (Ubuntu 10.10 and Windows Seven), and it didn't work in neither of them. I tried turning USB debugging on, and it made no difference.
When I unplug the phone, it will still think it's connected, the only way to fix it is by restarting the phone.
If I insert the microSD directly in the computer (with an adapter) it works fine.
Has anyone had success mounting it on Linux? Finding a Windows solution wouldn't solve my problem, as I only use Linux.
