Question How do you manually mount a PC to access a Samsung Galaxy S phone mass storage?

I would like to download a few (591)images from the Galaxy S phone. Samsung have advised me that to do that I need to place the Galaxy S phone on Mass storage, whivch I can do and plug the phone USB cable to the PC and manually mount the USB. The Galaxy S firmware 2.1-update1 doesn't support automatic mounting! The Galaxy S has an Android platform Kernel version 2.6.29 with root @SE-S604 #2. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 on a AMD Athlon(tm) XP 1700+ with 1G of ram.
It's the manual mounting of the USB connection I need help with.

Cheers John in wet Gippsland, VIC, AUS.

Hi jbhmags, welcome to LQ. You can have a look at this for manual mounting.

You could also install Astro w/the SMB module to the Galaxy and do this via network with no need for a cable.

Good luck. ;-)
