I am trying to install an application (developed using Eclipse) onto the computer (I am using Windows XP). When I try to connect the USB cable with the phone, it starts to charge or starts the MTP application, but it does not go into mass storage mode. Here is what I have tried so far:
- Turned on
USB Debuggingand then plugged in the USB cable. Result: Phone goes into charging mode.
USB Debuggingswitched off,
USB Utilities -> Connect to Mass Storagebutton pressed and the USB cable plugged in. Result: Plugging in the USB cable results in MTP application starting. Switching that off by pressing the home key and then pressing that
Connect to Mass Storagebutton again results in the message:
USB is connected. Remove the cable
- Tried the
*#7284routine described in thread on this forum. That did not work either. My default settings were
USB -> PDA(just the way that thread said it should be).
- Checked if the Google USB drivers are all installed. Yes, they are. Other drives also mount from the same USB slot without any problems.
- Switched off and then back on the phone.
- Used different cables (one from Samsung and the other from Nokia) to see if there could be anything wrong with the cable. The same situation as above. And the Nokia cable is brand new.
After having done all of this and spent a grand total of five hours, I am at my wits' end trying to figure out how I can get the phone to mount as a USB storage device. I have mounted it successfully before.
UPDATE: I plugged my phone in to a Linux machine and a Windows machine using both cables today. It worked for the both of them!!! So now I know that USB storage mode on my phone works. The problem has to be with my laptop, or to be more specific, with the USB drive on my laptop. My questions now are:
- How do I know what USB drive make is present on my computer. I would like to re-install the USB drivers on my laptop, all the while hoping that it does not screw up my machine.
