    USB drivers are available. A resent upgrade available on your manufacturers web site.

    Glad I'm not alone. No new drivers on Samsung website. Anyone try Verizon support yet?

    Yup same here

    I am having the same problem. Before I would mount the SD card through USB the normal way, but after the update the phone keeps showing up as a CDROM. There are a few files in the folder for installing verizon VCast software. I did try a new driver from Samsung, that didn't work. The phone just keeps "synching" any ideas?

    This solved the problem for me, pasted from the other forum.

    I updated my Fascinates this afternoon and am seeing same issue.

    Seems to be related to some new 'Media sync' option.

    I did some playing around and the following seemed to let me 'mount'
    the phones as before. ( But I dont like it. )
    Hoping for some direction from Verizon tech on
    a) what is media sync ?
    b) how do I turn off permanently If I dont need or want to use it?

    Unplug phone from usb cable.
    Then on Phone... Menu...Settings..USB settings
    Change to ' Ask on connection'.
    then press home button.

    Plug in USB cable.
    When prompted...Press 'Mass storage'.
    Now wait...wait..wait. Took about 30 to 45 seconds.
    Annunciator bar should have usb symbol. Drag it open.
    Press usb connected....Press Mount..
    My laptop now recognized the SD card on E drive.
    Copy files as usual.
    When done...Open Anunciator bar and 'Turn Off' USB storage.

    Sometimes when connecting I would see 'Media sync connecting'..press to Cancel. So I'd cancel.

    Research needed on this. Perhaps some new features ???

    That solution didn't work for me either. I tried all three options for usb settings and restarted both computer and fascinate multiple times.

    Issue is appearing in other forums as well.
