    Anyone else having a hard time getting the internal partition to mount over USB?

      I'm finding something very odd with the glowworm.  The USB connection is solid when I'm connected and booted via Noogie, but when I'm booted in the regular OS, the sdcard slot mounts and stays mounted, but the internal memory is very flaky. 

       

      First, it would not mount at all. 

       

      I've reset the device, and now it mounts and unmounts, mounts and unmounts - many times per minute.  I thought it might be the cable, so I pulled out the brand new cable - same behavior. 

       

      I've restored from an image backup to see if the original configuration has this problem.  It does.  Downloaded USB Deview, tore out all the prior NST installs - same behavior.

       

      I ordered the unit online, so I may well be in a for a several week wait.  I can't even get through on the support line just now.

       

      Has anyone seen anything similar?  At least for now the device does work as a reader, but given how badly this breaks Calibre for sideloading I'm curious to hear if anyone else is seeing this.

          I'm not seeing that.

           

          On a related note (you might try and see if this helps), the following converts USB ADB access to WiFi ADB access:  In the ADB shell as root:

           

          echo 'service.adb.tcp.port=5555' >/data/local.prop

          To revert to USB ADB access, just delete the file or rename it.

              Thanks, Dean.  Sounds like an early manufacturing issue, then.  I'm surprised the whole device isn't restarting, honestly.  Reimaging to complete stock from the backup didn't clear it, which suprised me. 

               

              I'm looking to use Calibre for managing content;  this isn't an ADB issue (I use ADB Wireless for that.)

               

              The really cool part (not) is that although the SD card mounts on the computer, once I eject it safely, the Nook doesn't remount it, not even if I physically unseat and reseat the card.  I need to completely power off with the button and power on again.  Perhaps the device connection notification isn't working properly on this unit. 

               

              My second glowworm will be available to me soon for further testing.  Nothing's been done to it yet.  (Aside from registering it.)
