    When i mount the USB drive from the pull down status bar and start to copy music or movies, it start copying and within a minute, it unmounts itself. In the phone, i get to hear 2 sounds - one that comes when i disconnect the USB and again the one that connects and it says USB is connected.

    I have to re-mount it manually and it is very difficult to copy big size files. I tried for about 30 mins and could not copy a 11 MB MP3 song. This is a brand new phone and the USB cable came with it. I tried 2 different USB ports and tried to hold the cable for a possible loose connection.

    Regards,
    Sri Harsha.

    very odd. I have no trouble copying over gigabytes of video to the phone. If your cable isn't loose, take it back to your dealer/shopkeeper and ask for a replacement.

    The problem is not with the cable.
    I have this problem on my desktop. Managed to get over the problem in my laptop by installing adb drivers. Its a driver issue. Try installing different versions of usb/adb drivers. One of it will work.

    Or if you have an external memory inside your phone try copying to it. It works sometimes :thinking:

    I learnt it the hard way.

    Or use Ubuntu. :p

    Seriously now, I'm using Ubuntu for file transfer. It seems that Microsoft hates free OS, Android is a competitor with Microsoft's Windows Mobile OS.

    These threads really ought to be combined. The OP just got impatient and split it, but it is the same discussion.

    I'm browsing the forum from Ubuntu right now. However, for flashing the phone, I go back to windows. Is it possible from Ubuntu? (or any Linux variant for that matter..)

    Just curious.
