    Well i did alot of research, i have a android phone, made by ARCHOS, im not really sure what android version it supports but it should not be too old sice i bought the phone half a year ago, well the screen broke, no part of it works except a little patch that just presses random buttons on the pattern lock, ive tried adding a mouse but that didnt work, so my question is how can i enable the usb mode on my phone so i can get my stuff of it ?
    *no the phone dosent show up on my pc

    Welcome to AC
    Unfortunately, you would have to enable USB debugging from the dev options, which is found in the settings on your phone. You'd need to turn that on manually, and since the display is not responding, is most likely not going to be possible.
    What data did you have on the phone? Contacts? Photos/videos?

    Pictures and stuff are always important to me since they're irreplaceable -- so I understand. Unfortunately if you didn't back these up before hand as UJ said it would be very unlikely to retrieve them. For the future always backup photos and irreplaceable things via a cloud service such as Google Auto Backup.

    You may be able to check with a repair shop near you to see if they can replace the screen for you -- Or fix whatever is causing the issue. That way you can retrieve them.
