    This must be an epidemic. This happened to me also. We called tech support and they could nit help. I am sending the phone back and getting a new one. Time will tell.

    same problem... worked initially but now the option is gone.. one way maybe to get around this would be to manually remove the micro SD and connect it to your computer via an adapter.. Still another cost incurred and extremely annoying!

Ignore the manual..It directs you to drill down into the settings for the sd card and set it as mass storage..no such option exists in the menu.
Follow this:
plug in usb
go to NOTIFICATIONS
touch the notification in the list that refers to the usb having been connected..you will receive a prompt to "mount" the sd card.
now you can access it.
viola.

I found the solution to that problem its because something was deleted when updated but heres how it works. first connect usb to phone and then connect usb to computer as soon as you do that on your phone select menu and then select notifications and then usb connect and everything should be fine.
Good Luck.

Pantech deo wont read sd memory card i have music on the card and the sd icon apears at the top of my phone but when i go into my music its not there.....another web sight told me to go to libary update in...


What size is your SD card? I've been reading elsewhere that the Pantech Duo doesn't support anything over 2 gig. Mine is a 4 gig and I am experiencing the same problem. It should have an option to click "storage" but it isn't there. It shows I have an SD installed as well. What you could do is upload what you have on your existing SD card to your computer, buy a 2 gig and transfer it over and see if that fixes the problem. It should.

Connection error to link phone to pc


hi 1st of all, reinstall the LG Pcsuite software, once that is done, you will see that a usb modem driver is also installed at the end of the process of installing the LG Pcsuite.

If you disconnect the usb cable from your mobile, then..

on your mobile go into the menu, then phone settings, then connectivity, there you will see USB connection mode.

If you click on USB connection mode you will see 3 options..
Data service, if selected tells your mobile to act as a modem when attached to your computer\
Mass Storage, if you select this option and then plug your usb cable back into your mobile, your computer will then discover your mobile phone as an external hard drive that will show up within Windows "My Computer", you are then able to browse your SD Micro memory card as an external hard drive and copy your files to your computer as simply as from one drive to another.
Remember if you want to use your phone again as a modem to go back to the USB connection mode menu and reselect Data Service.
Hope that helps

I can't figure out how to get music from my computer to my new google phone


Before connecting the USB lead you must Un-mount the SD card in the phone. To do this you need to go to settings\sd card &phone storage\ unmount or eject sd card. Once this is done connect the USB lead and your computer should find new mass storage device and label it as an exrternal drive. Simply drag and drop your music into the music folder on the new drive.

Note: When youve finished you need to go back to the phone and mount the drive back on the phone following the same steps I described at the begging.

Hope this helps. Karl

G1 SD


if reemoving and reinserting the card doesnt help, youll need to have it reformatted....

do this by connecting your phone to the pc and opening your MY COMPUTER icon > right click REMOVABLE STORAGE/DISK > select FORMAT

**if your computer says something like 'no disk available' try disconnecting the device and select MENU > SETTINGS > SD CARD AND PHONE STORAGE > make sure the check bos for 'USE FOR USB STORAGE' is checked****

after that, set the 'file systems' as FAT32 > select START > read the warning > press OK > once complete, disconnect from the pc and try again!

IF that doesnt work, try to test the sd card in another phone to see if the sd card itself is the problem. if you still have the issue but the sd card works, go ahead and reset the phone.

MENU > SETTINGS > SD CARD AND PHONE STORAGE > FACTORY DATA RESET > RESET PHONE > ERASE EVERYTHING

I have a htc touch phone and i put all my pics on the storage card, and than one day all pics where gone and nowi cant even save my pics to the storage card.. and now there is storage card , and storage...


Why this happens:
If for any reason your phone cannot find the SD card on boot it will create a folder on your Phone's Memory called 'Storage Card' to put the Temp Files, Pictures, Music, etc into. Now as soon as the SD card becomes available, since there is already a folder called 'Storage Card', it is forced to name the "Real" SD Card 'Storage Card 2'.
Solution: Delete the "Storage Card" folder and soft reset. If the phone finds the "Real" SD Card, it will be named 'Storage Card' again. If for some reason it is not found, you might have a corrupt SD Card that needs to be reformatted. This would of course loose all the information on the card, so hopefully this is not the case. Warning: If you have pictures or other files in the 'Storage Card' directory, you will want to move them to 'Storage Card 2' before deleting 'Storage Card'. Use the 'File Explorer' found in your 'Programs' to do this. Good luck!

4700 email storage?


no. This won't work. one can only set the option to store the *attachments* on a storage card, nothing more as far as storage is concerned.
