    I can see all the files on my SDcard, but when I connect the USB cord and select USB Drive to see files on my PC, then the sdcard is no more available on the android file manager

    Someone as an idea ?

    I'm confused. The link is to a thread about someone who cannot access their SD card on their device but your text suggests you can see the SD card BUT not when connected to a PC? What device do you have? How does it show up in Windows Device Manager? Have you downloaded/installed drivers for it?

    Sounds like a USB driver issue to me. Your phone manufacturer should be able to point you to the appropriate PC driver for download and installation.

  4. I had that happen to me. I backed up EVERYTHING onto my SD Card, removed it, went through EVERY SINGLE app on my phone & cleared the data, then did an FDR, restoring as a new device & it was all cherries!!! Hope it helps...alot of work, I know.
