When I plug in my Samsung phone it puts it under devices and printers it says that it is a modem. It reads Samsung CDMA technologies. I don't know how to get it to detect as a drive so I can put music and pictures on my phone. It is characterised as mass storage device and usb debugging is on.

What am I doing wrong?

Which Samsung device is this? – Flow Feb 5 '13 at 8:49

You should have an USB icon in the notification bar. If you expand the notification bar and click on the USB item you should be able to configure the connection mode you want.
