    You can't turn off USB charging (which is the slow way to charge: 'drip mode'; better for your battery's health) when it is physically connected. But to have the device act as an external volume to your computer you have to go (on Android 4.0.3) to Settings > More... > USB auxiliary apps > USB mass storage, and follow directions.

    To connect the phone as external drive to the PC, I'd go to the phone's Settings, Connect to PC, Default connection type, Disk drive :)

    That's not in 4.0.3 either. What version are you running, Harry?

    4.0.3 and 4.0.4, but HTC phones.
    So, might be a HTC Sense settings option ?
