Mass Storage mode

A standard that allows many newer phones with USB connections to transfer files between the phone and a PC without any special drivers or software on the PC.

See: USB

In mass storage mode, the phone appears as a disk on the computer when connected via USB, just like a keychain USB flash drive. Files can be moved to and from the phone simply by dragging and dropping files on the computer. Many phones require that this mode be enabled using a settings menu.
