Again and again, many user are asking how to get access
to the SD card under android 2.3.1 Gingerbread or CM 7.0.
So I prepared, the solutions that I found here and have tested
under Windows XP x32 and Windows Vista x32.
Both methods are working for me on these systems!



Method 1:

1. Right click on My Computer, go to Properties.
2. Go to Device Manager
3. Find your My HTC (should be the second one Android USB Device), right click on it and select Update Driver Software
4. Then select Browse My Computer for Software
5. Then choose Let Me Pick which driver to install on the bottom.
6. Then choose USB Mass Storage Device

After this unplugging the phone. I have change the MTP to ADB Testing Interface or Android ADB Interface and things seem to be mounting everytime.
Rebooted phone and PC, both worked again so I think this may be a working solution.

Now go to MTP

1. Right click on My Computer, go to Properties.
2. Go to Device Manager
3. Find your MTP (should be under Unknown Devices), right click on it and select Update Driver Software
4. Then select Browse My Computer for Software
5. Then choose Let Me Pick which driver to install on the bottom.
6. Then choose Google Inc. and the Driver is ADB Testing Interface
or Android ADB Interface


Method 2:


Download USBDreview and delete all android drivers (including adb)

Download PDAnet and install (it will install all necessary android drivers)

Job done.

If the cm kernel is being built correctly it shouldn't be showing as an mtp device at all, this only happens with stock kernels, a good example is the pershoot oc kernel I built and posted as opposed to flippy's, I think he is just using the msm7x30 source and either not using the correct drivers, or it is not being configured correctly.

I haven't seen a proper cm kernel that behaves that way.
