    Sorry if I double posted, new and all that, but I need help.

    my mac will not recognize my (verizon) incredible (usb)
    I get: "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer."
    os10.6.6
    HTC Incredible
    verizon
    Salling media sync

    Any ideas? Is there configuring needed? Salling recognizes a phone connected, the mac gives the above message and I pull down the status bar usb connect is NOT visible. thanks - jp

    When you plug it in via USB, click "ignore" and the computer should mount it. May take 15 seconds or so.

    Did you try going to menu/settings/connect to pc/default connection type? Set it to disk drive. Then you should see it mount. What computer and OS are you using?

    You should be able to drag the notification bar down. Select use as drive. That happened with my mac as well. Good luck.

    I don't know how the Incredible works but on the phone you should have a pull down menu. If one of the choices are USB Mass Mode, select that one.

    Nonsense, of course you can sync it. Do you have wifi? Download from the Market wifi file explorer pro from the Market. It will give you an ip address so you can access your SD card that way. Let me look into it some more while you do that.

    Here's something else to try:

    When you connect to the Mac via USB, and if it does not automatically show up, unlock the phone, pull down the drop down menu and click on charge only. Then choose "disk drive" to mount it as a disk drive.

    Verizon had me unmount and remount the SD card, it was then able to hook up with Salling Media Sync; although the mac still did not recognize the disk, I clicked ignore and Salling opened and mounted the SDcard and phone memory. Now If I can find a decent media player that recognizes the mp3 files on the SD card.
    Doubletwist dosen't, Cubed dosen't, and MixZing dosen't. The built in player does but is kinda klunky.
    thanks all for the help...
