    Hi,

    I have a new Samsung Galaxy S3, running Jelly Bean 4.1.1 (not rooted, and running stock).

    I have tried plugging it into my Volkswagen Golf MK6 via USB/MDI, but I receive an error on the phone about not finding the right drivers, and an error on the car display saying "Device not functioning" (or is it "Device not functional").

    I have just moved from an HTC Desire, which I had rooted and running CyanogenMod 7.2.0.1, and that worked fine in the car via MDI.

    I don't have bluetooth in the car either, I'm only interested in getting MDI working.

    This is something I can't do without!!! Any help would be massively appreciated!

    I have the same issue. I was uisng Bluetooth but 3 things happened:

    1. Quality I noticed wasn't the same as AUX-IN
    2. My car keeps saying PHONE BOOK EMPTY
    3. A2DP dissapeared when pairing phone

    So now I am stuck using AUX-IN (which sounds great BTW) and an external charger... I wish I could get MDI working on jelly bean on my phone! 2 cables in 1...and great quality sound.. Works great on my girls' HTC Evo 3D running ICS.

    The reason is that Google remove Mass Storage with the 4.1.1 OS. There may be adapters to plug into your system and the phone to get it to work.

    I have an HTC EVO 3D working fine on my MDI, but my Galaxy S2 running JB 4.1.2 (not even Ginger Bread) will connect. Same message. Unsupported device.
