    Does the option to change it to disc drive still appear in the notification bar?

    In settings go to connect to pc, look to see if ask me is checked.
    If it is change the default connection to disk drive & get round it that way

    Try pressing the power button for approx 10 seconds this works like a battery pull, see if your phone will work how it should after that.

    YES, It work, you save my day. Thank you anoniemouse very much for your Solution.

    Let me explain in details the resolution for my problem:-

    1.) Connect my HTC One X with my notebook with Micro USB Cable, as usual it will go into Charging mode.
    2.) As suggested by anoniemouse, I am pressing the power button for approx 10 seconds, my HTC one X go into reboot.
    3.) At the same time my notebook detected new device and the HTC driver being install and ready for used.
    4.) After reboot my HTC One X, the Notification bar appear and at the same time i saw an error report was prompt and waiting send to HTC.
    5.) I select Disk Drive and it work, my notebook now can access my HTC One X as storage.

    I did check on HTC Official web on this issue but HTC advise to do a Factory Reset that i am not agreed with.

    Once again thank you very much to anoniemouse, you soulution will help many others HTC One X users in future for this issue.

    Hey chaps,

    I'm having the same problem and can't fix it.

    I've had the htc for about a week now and everything was running beautifully. But i can't connect to PC in anyway. The 'Connect to PC' tab in my settings is also completely unresponsive.

    I've tried rebooting it and also the USB debugging.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Also having "connect to pc" button unresponsive. I remember I set it to charge only but now can't set it back which is very annoying. I don't want to have to reset the phone. Any ideas?

    I've also tried all of these things for the same issue. Phone charges but will not connect to PC. I even took it a step further to do the factory reset. Somebody please help me.

    Try uninstalling HTC Sync.

    After uninstalling Sync, connect the device and check in Device Manager if it is present. If yes, then uninstall it's drivers from there.

    Now, reconnect it. Windows will show new device and find drivers for it. It should work now.

    Sometimes, the USB drivers can act funny.

    Have you installed the HTC sync manager application? When I tried to hook my phone up to my Windows PC, it wouldn't recognize the phone until after I had installed the HTC sync manager app, leading me to believe that when you install the application, it gives you the drivers to recognize the phone.

    You can get it here:HTC Sync Manager

    Hi asym, what happens exactly, does your PC register a connection (does it make a sound when you plug the phone in)? If you pull the notification bar down when the phone is connected, are you given an option to select Disk Drive/Mass Storage?

    Have you tried another cable?
  21. asym182

    asym182 Lurker

    ya i have tried with another cable also still not working...i have also found out another problem while plugging with my notebook..like after i choose a connection type, though it does not get connected with the computer, but when i open the gallery or songs file...it shows "your content is unavailable bcoz ur phone is being used as USB storage. Disconnect USB to access your content". And when i disconnect it, it still displays the same message...then i need to restart my phone....and after restarting my phone when i again plug in the cable it, directly goes to charging mode with out displaying the option of connection type..So, if i want that option appear than in need to reboot my phone again...

    Guys, I installed ARHD17 a few days back but I have been having a bit of a similar problem that the OP is facing, and it is that I do not even have the "Connect to PC" setting and when I plug the device into my computer, the PC reads it as a Media Player while the Mac doesn't read it at all. What can I do? I have faced this problem with a couple of ROMs that are Jelly Bean-based, actually, where as ICS ones have the Connect to PC function working perfectly.

    i found with the recent OTA update for the one x, there are no more charging options. It both charges and mounts at the same time when connected to pc. well, atleast thats what happened with mine anyway.

    Yeah, that's what I am getting as well. It's actually pretty annoying, I liked to choose between mounting and charging.
