| | Password Interferes with Mass Storage
Please Login to Remove!
I recently enabled a password on my 8300. I ran into loads of problems when I tried adding files to the SD Card. You have to enter the password immediately after you connect the device to the PC to allow it to enter mass storage mode when the PC requests it. A second too late, it seems, and you have to unplug the device and plug it back in. MobiPocket crashed a number of times when I had the password enabled too.
I like the password for other stuff, but for file transfer, it's a big headache. Is there a way to disable the password for file transfer/mass storage purposes, or is it more of an all or nothing kind of thing?
