Default Phone internal memory problem

Hey Guys,

So I am trying to access my phones internal memory on my computer because I want to put some more songs on the phone, however, now when it connect it to the computer, the computer only recognizes the SD card of the phone but not the phone's internal memory.

It never did this before. When I first got the phone, I was able to choose in My Computer, whether I wanted to access to the SD card or the phones internal memory. I was able to see the pictures I took with my phone and put songs into it. When I connect my phone to the computer, I am unable to view the internal memory of the phone while on the phone itself. I disconnect it from PC and I try to go into gallery to look at the pictures I took and they aren't there. My music is not there either. I would have to turn my phone off and turn it back on for it to return to its normal state so I can't do anything with the internal memory anymore.

Also, I do not know if this is related to the problem but when I connect my phone to PC and it asks me if I want to turn my phone on as a USB device and I hit ok, nothing happens so I would have to turn it on a second time for it to work. I have to do this everytime I connect my phone to the computer.

Help will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks a lot!

Do you have the latest drivers?

Could be a Windows issues (which version?)

Is it USB 2.0? My old 1.1 USB with Windows XP Home never recognized my Nexus One.

Did you try restarting the computer?

If worse comes to worst, you can put it on your SD card, then move it via the Polaris Office app that's on the phone.

The internal memory used to be recognized by the computer, now it doesn't for some off reason.

I'm really not sure. Did you try enabling it as a mass storage device only? Disabling it?

Not too familiar with 7, I'd try deleting the drivers, then reinstalling them.

As far as Polaris is concerned, here's a small writeup.

If that's annoying, you can also try searching the market for file explorers, that way, once you transfer it to the SD you can move it to the internal without cables.

Or better yet, look for a wifi file explorer. Or Winamp to wirelessly transfer the files to your phone.

8 Gigs: 5 gigs of internal space, 1 gig of app space, the other 2 gigs for OS and whatever LG uses it for.
