    Do you think that Verizon did this as an accident, or was this purposeful?

    I know I sound like a broken record, but they have alienated us Fascinate users so much that it really is getting to be ridiculous now. I imagine some techno-nerd sitting there dreaming up ways to mess with us.
    *I* feel like this was on purpose -- I find it hard to believe that they could accidentally make it so you need to use vCast Media Managr. Of course, I could be completely wrong and it was truly an accident, but that's just how I feel.

    What's weird is that it shows up as a Galaxy S tablet in vCast media manager o_O

    If you root there is a fix. I myself believe that this was an acccident. The USB mass storage driver was poorly written...typical of Samsung.

    IVE DONE IT!!! IVE DONE IT!!! i have done what no one else could do, not even our great adrynalyne!!! here is the step by step on how to fix this problem.

    1. open the dialer and press *611 send
    2. select the option for tech support.
    3. you will get someone very stupid in another country whose mother dresses them every morning. tell that your phone shows up as a cd rom and that you have already formated your sd card, tried a new sdcard, did a factory reset in the phone settings and in samsung recovery.
    4. you will then be transfered to someone very stupid in another country who dress himself every morning. tell that your phone shows up as a cd rom and that you have already formated your sd card, tried a new sdcard, did a factory reset in the phone settings and in samsung recovery.
    5. the next day when you receive your replacement phone go ahead and set it up.
    6. you will notice that your phone will come with old faithful, or DI01. root your phone. install a DJ05 modem, ROM and kernel of your choice(i am using adrynalynes...something another, hard to keep track).
    7. leave DL09 the heck alone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    this is your step by step on how to fix the cd rom issue with your samsung fascinate.

    adrynalyne, thanks for all you do for us. i am running your latest test kernel, as usual it runs great!!!

    i will NOT be installing dl09 again, no way no how!

    lol. i try.

    you know what really pathetic(besides my spelling)? you TEST kernels run better than there release kernel. what the heck is that all about. i mean no one here doubts your skill, but you would figure samsung and all thier money could buy a kernel that performed atleast as well as your "release" kernel, not to mention your test kernel. so lets recap. sammy drops big bucks to develope, lets say a kernel for DL09, and it sucks. adrynalyne (and a few others), who get paid in "attaboys", develope kernels, in there spare time, that dont pop on audio play back, have great battery life and increase the overall performance of the phone. am i missing something?

    OK, don't flame me for cross posting but in the Fascinate SD card will not mount on a MAC with DL09 thread there is a hack that works on the Mac.
    Its not very elegant but it seems to work. At least it worked for the guy that posted it and me.

    Well, so far I've been doing my own investigation.

    Stock DH12-DI01 = no issues
    DJ05 = start of seeing issues
    DL09 = still seeing issues


    So far there is no rhyme or reason to what causes it...Ive seen it happen with Odin users, and rom flashers, and kernel flashers, on all versions of roms and kernels, EXCEPT bone stock DI01. Even stock updates cause it, as we have seen here.

    Now this Verizon iso is on the DI01 rom, it just does not work. Now when we got the DJ05 leak, we stopped making kernels for DI01, due to the initramfs changes. I have checked the source between DI01 and DL09 kernel, wise, only a handful of files were changed, and they all refer to sound, or battery. So really,a DL09 kernel is very much like a DI01 kernel, code wise.

    Thats why I think the problem may lie in the system rom, or the initramfs.

    So far my attempts to eradicate the CD ROM iso code in the kernel has been met with resistance. If you remove the code (or infection) from the driver, then the ONLY thing your phone will show up as is a cd rom device...

    If you remove the kernel CD ROM drivers from the source, the problem still remains.


    So I am still working on it, but I am looking for a needle in the haystack right now.

    Have you tried to replace the drivers from the CD iso with the drivers from the Samsungs website?

    Dj which osx are you running. You might be able to run an older version of parallels desktop and install windows xp. I am assuming you have the older power pc model w/ osx 10.4. If so you might be out of luck on getting this stuff to work.

    Just to be clear, this is what I see if I don't follow #58 or #60.

    Laptop: Windows 7, 32-bit.
    Fascinate: USB debugging off & Mass Storage selected. Flashed DI01 then OTA to DL09.

    This pops up:



    This is what I see when I open "My Computer":



    Notification Panel:

    Were threads merged or something because post #2 in this thread has a link that sends you to this AC article in which it says to use post #60 of this thread (and provides a link...to page 2 of this thread?). But neither post #58 nor #60 in this thread have any sort of fix/solution to the problem (they're just random posts).

    Putting my phone (rooted) and my wife's phone (stock) in USB debugging solved the issue for us. Once I connect the cable I'm prompted to mount the usb just like before.

    Immediately after updating to DL09, I had USB connection issues too. Regardless of the mode... mass or media, I get a virtual cd mount for about 20 seconds. A little annoying with the delay. VCAST Manager was installed last month. I am on Windows 7 64bit.

    As autorun is disabled, the bootstrap on the virtual mount did not run.

    When in mass storage mode (drive letter)... After the 20 seconds past, the virtual mount disappeared. And it attemped to install the driver for the mass storage. I downloaded the latest from the samsung support site and it worked! (I am pretty sure this is the same driver the comes on the virtual mount as it worked on another 64bit computer).

    When in media mode... This is where problems came. After 20 seconds... nothing! The computer did not even recognize a usb device existing. Verified with a usb scanner. The fascinate stayed in a connecting status under the notifications screen.

    I tried a number of tests on the 2 different computers with the same results. Everything from basic reinstalling and rebooting to clearing out all vagrant devices from the registry.

    In the end, I downloaded the captivate's keis lite software from the samsung support website. The goal was to gain access to the usb drivers included with the tool. Installed... and it worked. Media mode usb!!

    This worked on both 64bit computers. At the moment keis is still installed on both computers. At some point I will probably try to remove and clean up the install.

    Basic summary.
    1. installed latest verizon fasicnate drivers from samsung website.
    2. installed captivate keis lite from samsung website.

    Good luck.

    What is the 'correct' fix? There are a bunch of 'this worked for me' and 'I fixed it' posts but I don't know which is the real deal.

    lol. i understand. adrynalyne's kernel is one fix. doing a teatherd restart is a work around. me, i did a warrenty replacement. oh, and of course, dont install dl09, it sucks.

    Edit:Adrynalyne release his kernel after i got my warranty phone.

    I wonder if this will work for me, Which one did you plug in first? and was it a one time fix or must it be done everytime?

    My phone is stock, I can mount the SD card with no problems, no Samsung nor Verizon software downloads on my Win 7 and XP computers. However I have tried everything but stand on my head to get it to mount on my wife's Vista 64 bit laptop...no can do.
