How to connect an Android 2.2 Froyo smartphone to a PC by USB

This tutorial will explain you how to connect your Micro-SD card from your smartphone to your PC/laptop.


Connect the USB cable to the smartphone and to the PC/laptop.

From the smartphone, go to settings, applications, development, check “usb debugging” once, click ok,
wait around 3 seconds, uncheck “usb debugging”.

At this point, you should see the green Android robot and a button “Turn on USB storage”.

Click on it, ok.
Wait around 10 seconds. The PC should pop a window so you can open the SD-card storage.

This method works only if you want to browse the content of your SD-card, not the internal storage of your device.
