    For some reason, ever since upgrading to simon's jelly bean rom, I can't connect my phone as a disk drive onto my macbook. It'd always say "This disk you inserted was not readable by this computer," giving me the option of either ejecting it or ignoring it. When I hit the ignore button, it would just sit there and not do anything.

    This never happened when I was on ICS. In fact, when I restored an ICS nandroid, I was able to connect to my pc as a disk drive. I THINK the only difference between the two roms is that with the ICS one, a window would pop up asking if I wanted to connect with charge only, as a disk drive, or with some sort of HTC sync program.

    Please help! I've been trying to work it for HOURS nowww.

    HTC changed the UMS to MTP on jb. Also under windows you can't connect with an drive letter.

    Not really a chance to find a solution to change it (under windows).
    As i don't have a mac i don't have an idea. All you can do is search for driver or something like that.

    I couldn't find a solution, but I guess it's not that big of a deal because I usually connect my phone to my Windows side. Thanks again o_splatterhand!

    Google provides the MTP tool for the Mac -

    Android.com

    As of Mountain Lion, it depends on which Mac you have - it may or may not work. Thank Apple for that, it's 100% reliable with previous versions.
