    Greetings All,

    I've enjoyed using Android phones for a couple of years now....A Big plus in that was the ability to plug into my computer then drag and drop files where I wanted.

    It appears the 2.3.3 update has made that an impossibility, as now Windows says that the drive needs to be formatted. Then a Motorola installer pops up non stop that does nothing in particular.

    Will a factory reset again enable me to use my phone as a USB storage device without all these extra hand holding prompts and such?

    Again, to clear confusion...Before the update the process was like this
    1. Attach USB
    2. Select Mode
    3. Move Files

    Now it's like this.
    1. Attach USB
    2. Select Mode
    3. Windows suggests I format the drive/Motorola Installer pops up.
    4. Install Motorola....Nothing happens....Installer pops up again
    5. Frantically search Internet for solutions
    6.Beg Android Forum people for help.
