    Looking for suggestions...

    I have a Mac and when I plug my phone into the USB it connects in that the phone shows it is connected and charging however the SD media card does not mount so I can not transfer files.

    If I unplug I can go into settings > SD Card & phone settings and it shows the card, available space, etc.

    I can not see it from my Mac though.

    Any suggestions?

    I figured it out. Needed to drag down the notifications bar, select USB storage and then mount the disc.

    Cheers

    that is correct. be sure to eject the card from finder (mac) and then drag down the notification bar to un-mount before accessing file on your SD card

    Today, I unmounted my sd card and then ejected from windows...and my sd card got corrupt, so i had to reformat it...so proper way is to first eject and then unmount it

    Ouch!

    Thanks for the update. I will be careful in the order in which I do this.

    @Madmax 56 I am having the same problem, and since I am new to both MAC OS, and Android I was wondering if you could give me the step by step of what you did?

    Thanks

    1) connect the usb cable to the phone and your Mac
    2) you will see a USB plug in the notification bar on the top of your phone
    3) drag down the notification bar and there should be an entry saying USB connected
    4)tap it and open, tap the Mount button

    PHONE CARD should now be on your desk top.

    You can open it with Finder and move files to it, delete files, etc like any other directory on your Mac

    Cheers
