I am trying to connect my Samsung Continuum android to my macbook pro via USB so that I may copy files from the phone to the mac.
I have enabled "Mass storage" under the USB settings on the phone. I have also enabled USB debugging on the phone. The phone has an 8gb memory card.
The Macbook Pro is running OS X 10.6.7. The mac has 2 USB ports, I have tried both of them with no success. I have no removable drives on the mac.
When I plug in the phone to the computer, an icon appears on the desktop entitled "Verizon Mobile". This icon is a folder that contains 4 files. After about 10 seconds or so, the icon disappears. The files are Autorun.inf, ToolLauncher-Bootstrap.exe, ModelName.txt, Samsung_Model_USB_Driver.exe. These are obviously windows files and of no use here.
Then I pull the notification bar on phone home screen and tap on USB connected.
I get the choice of "Mount" or "Don't Mount"
I choose Mount
Then a message pops up saying:
"The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer"
"Initialize …" "Ignore" "Eject"
I choose Ignore. Nothing happens, I might expect to see an icon appear on the desktop, but nothing and I don't see anything, though. Under my "Macintosh HD" - DEVICES, it is not listed.
I restart the Mac without disconnecting the USB cable, but the phone still does not appear.
How can I solve this problem?
