    Go to menu, settings, applications, development and make sure usb debugging is turned off.

    Try using a different USB port on your computer. Sometimes some work better than others.

    Look to see if your drivers on your computer are up to date. I think I had that same issue and all it needed was an update of the LG driver and I was good to go.

    I second that ^^. Neither my OpV or my Intercept would work until I installed the proper drivers.

    well after trying all the things everyone has suggested and calling LG help(lol) the only thing I found that works is to unmount the SD card and throw it in my card reader. Works like a charm and no problem, it just sucks that I can't just do it with the SD card in the phone, atleast now I can swap files and add and take off whatever I want with not too much hassle. Thanks for all the help

    I would return the phone. It is a PITA to keep taking out the uSD, especially if you have a case.
