When I plug it in, it will try to media sync, then about 1 minute later it switches and says USB connected. I try to mount it, and it doesn't work. The drive is there (H: in my case), but when I click on it I get "Please insert a disk into removable disk (H".
Some more details:
I plug in the USB cable, the AutoPlay dialog comes up and asks to Open Folder to View Files or run ToolLauncher-Bootstrap.exe. I just let the dialog sit there, and about 30 seconds later it goes away by itself. Then, my phone switches to USB mode, the computer makes the sound it does when you plug something it.
I then select Mount, and the AutoPlay dialog flashes on the screen, then goes away. It's at that point (I think) when it fails to connect, or loses connection.

Nope, same thing. The little AutoPlay dialog comes up on the screen a few seconds after I mount, then disappears. It used to work so I know it's not the computer.
I'm going to uninstall the Samsung drivers and reset the phone and see what happens.
btw, the first time I connected after the update, I let the Verizon drivers install. Not sure if that makes a difference. I've since reinstalled the Samsung drivers from the "How to root" post.

Found this over at vzw:
Seems to be related to some new 'Media sync' option.
I did some playing around and the following seemed to let me 'mount'
the phones as before. ( But I dont like it. )
Hoping for some direction from Verizon tech on
a) what is media sync ?
b) how do I turn off permanently If I dont need or want to use it?
Unplug phone from usb cable.
Then on Phone... Menu...Settings..USB settings
Change to ' Ask on connection'.
then press home button.
Plug in USB cable.
When prompted...Press 'Mass storage'.
Now wait...wait..wait. Took about 30 to 45 seconds.
Annunciator bar should have usb symbol. Drag it open.
Press usb connected....Press Mount..
My laptop now recognized the SD card on E drive.
Copy files as usual.
When done...Open Anunciator bar and 'Turn Off' USB storage.
Sometimes when connecting I would see 'Media sync connecting'..press to Cancel. So I'd cancel.

Basically, this is VZW trying to turn our phone to an iphone. When you plug in an iPhone, iTunes launches. They are doing the same thing with android. I wonder if there is an application in the app files, once rooted, that can be renamed (OLD) to stop this function.
Does anyone know?

Was running stock DI01 then went to Sonofskywalker 3.0 (DL09) and that's when the problem started for me. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit/AMD Phenom Quad Core. I have the latest drivers installed for the phone. I have tried flashing back to full DI01 via Odin but that's not helping at all. Also tried formatting my SD card from my PC but that's not helping either. Hope this info is of some help.
EDIT: Another phone on my line, which has NEVER rooted nor installed anything other than factory/market applications/mods has this very same issue after the OTA update to DL09 so it's certainly nothing that was caused by a mis-coding from a custom rom.

Ok, so on another computer I downloaded the Samsung 32 bit drivers from the How To Root post. Installed and everything worked great.
I think it's an issue with 64 bit PC and Mac systems (new macs are 64 bit, right).
Another thing... It only took a couple minutes to install these 32 bit drivers, but on my 64 bit Vista system, the 64 bit drivers take forever to install.

After I updated I was getting the media-sync cd-rom drive nonsense as well. I eventually got it working mostly like normal, although I'm not sure exactly what I did to fix it.
The only problem now is that whenever I plug in, I'm asked if I want to download additional software, and it fires up Internet Explorer to a Verizon webpage. Once I close that stuff, it re-detects how I want it to.
Not the biggest problem, but horribly annoying.

I'm giving up and just going with an SD card reader for my computer.

Ok, so I'm not a quitter.
Uninstalled the Samsung drivers. Reinstalled with the September 2010 drivers from their site.
Plugged in the phone. Double clicked on the icon in the System Tray to safety remove hardware.
Found the Sansung device. Clicked on it. Clicked the Properties button. Then the Driver tab, then uninstalled the drivers.
Unplugged the phone. Put it in debug mode. Connected the phone again. It auto-detected and drivers were installed.
Opened up Windows Explored. Double clicked the drive assigned to the phone, and there were my files.
For me, it will only work with debug mode on.
