    Super Dumb Question

    How di I get to transfer files to my sd card on this ROM? When I hoop my USB cable to the phone, I don't get the option to enable storage. It also doesn't show up as a device on my computer. I know I am just missing something. Thanks!

    Did that. Changed the default from charge only to mount sd card. Still nothing. This has me perplexed. I am sure I am missing something simple. have even rebooted to no avail.

    Cable is good. Phone is mounted. Computer shows USB is connected. I just can't turn on USB storage on the phone.

    Even though it says USB CONNECTED you still need to select that and then select TURN ON USB STORAGE in order for it to see it as an external drive.

    LOL, been rooted for a long time. The USB Connected in on the computer, not the phone. Don't get that option on the phone. Have been accessing it ok via ROM Manager. Gotta be something specific to the ROM.

    Hmmm. Weird. I didn't mean to be disrespectful in anyway but I do get that option on my phone and even though it says it's connected, I still have to hit that function to turn the USB storage on. Sorry about that.

    Hey, no problem. I hope I didn't imply that you were. I am grateful for any help. I just put that in thee in case someone else saw the post and assumed I was a noob. It is odd, because I get the USB DeBugging in the notification bar, but nothing related to storage. It's a pain to keep using Recovery to install to the SD card, but I guess I can continue.
