Note: Make sure that the Bluetooth on your Samsung Nexus S is deactivated, and I recommend you create a different folders for other media types in order to organize them better on your phone.


My nexus does not give me an option to turn on mass storage manually. The first time I got the phone and plugged it in a notification popped up at the top asking if i wanted to turn it on.... It does not do that anymore and hasn't for a long time.

I have read many blogs on the internet about it and it seems a number of people are having the same issue with it.

I agree with Lennon42. It's driving me crazy
