      • Media Player, sets the Windows Media Player to launch as the default application when a USB connection is detected
      • Mass Storage, allows you to utilize the onboard storage capacity of the phone's MicroSD card to store and upload files (This option allows your computer to detect the phone's MicroSD card as a removable storage drive)
