How To Connect As A Storage Device

Description

The phone connects to the computer by default in a "media mode".  This provides the least impact to the operating system and running applications.  Unfortunately, it's dreadfully slow.  If you're going to be transferring large files or a large number of files, it can be much faster to connect the phone as a storage device.

Instructions
  1. From the home screen, go to your Settings menu.
  2. Click More... in the Wireless and network section at the top.
  3. Click Usb utilities.
  4. With the phone unplugged, click the button Connect storage to PC.
  5. Now connect the cable from the computer to the phone.  
  6. The phone will now connect like a storage device instead of connecting as a MTP device

This guide is specifically for the Samsung Captivate Glide SGH-i927 running ICS 4.0.4 base version I927UCLJ3 but may be true for other phones and versions.
