    Default Galaxy Tab 3 - Turning off USB Mass Storage

    Hello, I have a Wi-Fi Galaxy Tab 3, but I'm having huge problems trying to figure out how to turn off "USB Mass Storage" mode. I basically don't want the device to open up like a flash drive when connected to my computer. Also, I do not have a microSD attached to the device.

    Help greatly appreciated.

    When you connect the device to your computer, bring up the notification shade and tap on the USB connection notification. It should give you options for how to connect--select MTP.

    It seems like I didn't need to change the USB connection in the first place, but I've never known about the notification shade. Thanks.

    Not exactly. I couldn't find the option to completely turn it off. I was initially looking to turn it off for game development and testing, but I guess I didn't need to do anything for this device.
