Nokia E61: USB Mass Storage Mode not possible

Happened to me today: I wanted to transfer some MP3 files to my E61, but it said it couldn’t switch to mass storage mode because I had set the text message storage to the memory card.
My guess is that the messages being displayed on ActiveStandby are fetched from the storage card, so the phone can’t go to mass storage mode. How hard can it be to program concurrent access to the memory card file system?

Sorry for ranting – but I’m fed up with that kind of crap. This is supposed to be a business phone, so please take the time it took to implement that error message to implement concurrent access to the memory card.

Arghhh!

  1. Yes, you´re pretty right. Same happened to me also when installing applications to the external card.
    My Tipp would be: Try to install anything to the built in memory and try to keep all logs etc. there also. Just use the memory card to store music, videos, pictures, maps etc. But don´t install themes and anything to the external card that is likely to always run or write to it.
