    Hey Dax,

    Had the same issue. By default the phone is set to act as a modem when you connect it via usb to a comp.

    To change it to act as a mass storage device you can enable the following:

    Settings-->Sd card & phone storage->"Mass storage only"

    And your good to go,

    Yup, got that checked. Still nothing. Are you on mac or pc? Have a feeling it may be a mac specific issue...

    Click on the screen on top of the status bar and drag down.
    You'll get a Usb connected message click on it
    Click mount.

    Finally got home and tried usb on my pc. worked like a charm. But still no luck on my mac.

    Received this reply from LG support:

    "Unfortunately you will need to obtain software from Apple for the MAC OS to connect the phone to the MAC. Alternatively you can use a card reader on the computer to add the files to the MicroSD card."

    Doesn't seem promising. Anyone have any idea what software I might have to obtain??

    I have a MAC (Snow Leopard) and I have no problem and did not need any software.
