If you'd rather not jailbreak the iPhone and still use it as a USB drive, there is a similar guide for non-jailbroken phones here: How to turn your iPhone into a USB flash drive

I was a little worried using this app, seeing as it felt relatively old. I haven't read to many good comments about it either. It was unfortunate, but since I require a tethered boot, I was unable to properly operate the device. I didn't put to much effort in it to be honest, I don't have much space on my iPhone to begin with. I love the concept, it's a real quick relief. I was in a rut to play a movie, and this was perfect. I found I needed to reboot after deleting the volume. It gave me some worry after deleting it through the app (lol). Back to square one, luckily.

Why has there been such a problem with finding a solution to "USB not recognized". I'm still having issues after using drive only.

Mine is iPhone 3g, and it worked prefectly. THANKS! Note Go to USB drive, and then choose 1) If use default, it will only show photos you have in the iphone 2) if you use device only it willonly open USB, then you can add/exchange PPT, PDF, word files between your PC and iphone. 3) drive +iTunes doesn't work for me in my case (iphone 3G #) either #1 or # 2 works (but not both at the same time). However, when ever you need eaither you can "Reboot" whichever you want. Hope it helps
