Do you have to purchase a micro SD in order for a computer to recognize the phone as a storage unit? In the past, the computer was always able to recognize the internal memory within the phone.
The LG driver isn't part of the stock drivers that are installed with your operating system. You need the LG USB driver for the computer to recognize the phone. Get it from here:http://www.lg.com/us/support-mobile/lg-LG800G
If you purchase an SD card for the phone, don't get anything larger than 4GB
. The phone won't recognize the additional storage beyond 4GB and you won't be able to access the card. A red "X
" will show up in the SD card icon in the notification area at the top of the screen.
