    I have this weird problem where apps installed on the internal memory to don't come back on after leaving mass storage mode. I have to reboot the phone to get them back. It's not to big of a problem because I don't think I will actually be transferring files that.

    After leaving mass storage mode I see a media scan being done, then the apps icons start saying not installed when I try to use them. They have generic icons when viewed in the app manager. All the files are accessible though.

    Had that once, I just moved my apps back to system, formated internal memory and moved apps back and it was fine. You will also need to backup any other goodies you have on internal before formating.

    Are you using Directory Bind or some other symlink program? I had this same problem until I uninstalled Directory Bind, and the last time I used mass storage it worked fine again.

    That's odd. ES File Manager is the app I use and have not had any problems with it.:thinking:
