Default SD card connects to pc automatically.

As the title says l. Each time I connect a USB cable my sd card connects to my pc instead of connecting in MTP or MSC. I'm using an ICS based custom ROM. This wasn't happening until a few days ago and now it only happens with any ROM based on ICS. If I revert back to Gingerbread 2.3.4 the problem is no longer present. This never happened the very first time I installed a previous version of the same ROM I'm using and now it does. I know something has been changed but I don't know what. I even ask for help at XDA revs site but even they can't help me saying they have never heard of this ever happening. I really want to resolve this because having the sd card connected instead of MTP or MSC mode has limits. And also I noticed that the sd card shows it is always mounted when I look in CWM. Please help me.

I have the same problem on Xperia Ray running ICS.
Did you have any luck solving the problem?

I gave up not long after the first post. No one I've asked has any clue to what is going on cos they haven't had this problem happen to them. Not even anyone on XDA forums can tell me how to fix it.

The USB connection mode options MTP and MSC for Xperia 2011/ICS 4.0.4 are found here:

Menu / Settings / Xperia / Connectivity / USB connection mode

I hope this answered your question.

I'm having the same problem too. I use MSC mode to connect the phone SD card to my PC. However, I usually just want to connect to charge without mounting the card. I've just upgraded from Android v2.3.4 to Android 4.0.4 and am going to find this a massive pain in the neck. I connect my phone to my PC loads of times every day and will find having to dismount the card when I just want to charge a big inconvenience.
