07-23-2008, 01:55 PM #1File transfer problem via USB cable...
I have been transferring music and picture files between my mobile phone (Sony Ericcson K800i) and G4 iBook via a usb cable.
By mistake I physically disconnected the USB cable before I unmounted/ejected the phone's hard disc via its icon (that shows in the left hand side of the iBooks Finder window).
Now when I connect the phone to the iBook via the USB cable, the phone does not show on my desktop or in my Finder window at all.
Have I done something terminal! How might I rectify this problem?
The phone/iBook still transfers files fine via bluetooth.

sorry to give the standard IT staff response, but have you shutdown and restarted?

Yep ... both phone and iBook.
I wondered if there were some preferences or similar I should throw away?

I know this seems simplistic, and connection has worked alright for you before now, but some USB peripherals will not mount unless they're powered on and THEN the USB plug connected to the computer port.
