Setup for mass storage on phone wont work

To setup mass storage on your G1 phone the manual says to Connect the USB cord that came with the phone from your G1 to your Computer, on the home screen of your phone select menu, then select settings, then go to SD Card & Phone Storage, after that it says to choose Use for USB storage, but my phone does not have that as an option on that page it just says
1. Total Space
2. Available space
3. Unmount/Eject SD Card
4. Available Space
5. Factory data reset

i would like to know what i need to do to get that missing option

To transfer files using USB devices
  1. Connect the LG OPTIMUS M+ to your PC using a USB cable.
  2. If you haven't installed LG Android Platform Driver on your PC, you need to change the settings manually. From the Home screen, touch the Applications Key Settings > Connectivity > Default connection mode > Mass storage only.
  3. You can view the mass storage contents on your PC and transfer files.

Need motorola pc suit to tranf er pics from cell phone to lap top i have a motorola cell phine and can not transfer photos with the motorola phone tools,want a free down load so that I can do this


You can download it free from motorola website but you can transfer images the way I do from my motorola phone. In the setup menu of phone, change the USB mode to mass storage mode and connect the phone using USB cable. Now your computer will recognize your phone as a mass storage device (like pendrive) and you can find all your images in it.

My computer does not detect my power shot A400


If you camera is not detected when connected to your computers USB port what you can try here first is to connect the camera on a different USB port and make sure the connections and usb cable is fine, and if your computer is a desktop you can try connecting the the camera on the back USB port of your computer and see if that will be fine.

But if still not working I will suggest you try connecting the camera on different computer and also if possible use a different USB cable and reinstall the camera software if you have the setup disc for it.

Sometimes a certain usb port, for whatever strange reason, will not detect. Try a different usb port, and see if that helps. You might have a bad cord, so try a card reader if you have one. You might install the CD that came with the camera, if you have it.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Can not connect using LG Mobile Sync


I have an LG 970 with precisely this stupid problem. In many, many ways, this phone is a complete nuisance. This particular stupidity is a phone setup issue, it cannot be a Mass storage Device and a Data Service at the same time.
Solution:
Phone, Menu, 9 Settings, 4 Connectivity, 3 USB connection, ...
- select "Mass storage" if you want to access images, sounds etc using Windows Explorer, just like any other USB stick
- select "Data service" if you want to use the LG Mobile Sync application
