When I plug my Sony Z1 Compact Android phone into my Mac or PC, the phone prompts me to install a program on the PC/Mac.
Can I not just have the phone behave as a standard, common USB Mass Storage class (i.e. like a USB pen drive, hard drive, or SD card), without having to install a program on the host PC?
This is an inconvenience as if wanting to transfer to a PC that's not my own, I may not be in the position to install such a program.
Update This was so easy on Android 2.3 on a HTC Desire Z - plug it into a Mac, PC or Linux desktop (i.e. the host), phone asks which mode it should be in, select the USB storage / harddrive option and then the phone appears as an ordinary external disk on the host machine.
