    After updating to ICS, when I connect my phone to my MacBook via USB, it will only charge. It no longer mounts the USB storage and SD card to allow for file transfer. It will charge, though. Am I missing a setting somewhere? I use USB to transfer/store photos and videos from my phone on my computer.

    First issue is you are a traitor. Thanks for supporting Apples Patent War against Android.

    Second is I believe with ICS it came with new USB Drivers. Update the drivers and reboot. If that dont help then either buy a windows laptop or buy an iPhone.

    Do you have USB Debugging enabled? Whenever I have an issue with my computer not recognizing my phone, turning that setting on helps.

    3) USB utilities
    4) Connect storage to Mac
    5) When prompted press OK
    6) Plug in your USB Cable

    I have a similar issue, I used to be able to connect my Epic 4g Touch to my Bluray player and watch video files off of my phone, well since ICS the player can no longer see or connect to the phone. Not like in Gingerbread :-/ I tried changing usb debug on/off and still no luck.

    The file transfer app is an acceptable solution/work-around.

    I've had this Mac Book since before Apple's recent patent hissy fits. Please go away if you're not going to be constructive.
