    Yes, can you give us a bit more information? Especially since most Android devices haven't actually supported USB Mass Storage for several years it would help to know what device you have, what OS, what exactly you did and what the current status is?

    In the absence of that info though, in the old days when UMS was normal you'd unmount the device from the computer and that would normally be enough to remount it on the phone. If that wasn't enough, pull down the notification drawer and there will probably be a notice telling you to click it to change the storage mode. And if not, go into Settings > Storage.

    If none of that does it we really will need more detail.

    Hi, I use USB storage via an OTG adapter cable with my HTC M7 and M9 but only for backup purposes for the data in the on-device storage areas and to store files and folders that I occasionally access but need to be able to carry with me.

    Is it the OTG/USB flash drive combination you are referring to - and perhaps you have data that really needs to be in your on-device storage?

    If so then it should be quite straight forward to copy/move the data to the appropriate on-device storage areas using a file manager.

    I use the HTC file manager on my M9 but have used ES File Explorer which will read the OTG/USB storage as I'm sure will be the case with most if not all decent file managers.
