Android - Howto Mount USB on desktop or laptop

Howto Mount Android USB on desktop or laptop.

Its not immediately obvious how to do this.

You've connected your Android by USB, get the 'USB connected' message, and then the USB icon top left on the screen.

But no volume on your desktop.

What you need to do is to press and drag in the notification area, and select 'USB Connected'. It then asks if you want to 'Mount' or 'Don't mount'. Select 'Mount' to have the SD card mount on the desktop.

You are a rock and roll star. Cheerio. Thanks... quite useful! I am sure I would have found it in a moment, but I like the trouble I get in typing things like "mounting an android"

Thank you so much! I did it one time when I first got the phone and couldn't remember how since...

Any clue how to do this on a macbook pro with a Verizon HTC Eris?

thx. but what if you click on the notification and nothing happens (except it goes away)? that is, no dialog with the choice mount/unmount appears.
