USB Connection Problem

Dear all,

 

i want to back up SMS from my old Xperia X10 Mini (using some Android back-up software like Wondershare). I have a Mac if that makes any difference. But the problem seems to be on the side of the phone. Every time I connect the phone to a USB cable I get an error message saying "please enter sd card an connect again". The thing is - for some kind of reason the phone does to recognize the sd card. But in any case - I don't want to get data from the sd card - only from the internal memory of the phone.

So I have two questions: how do I connect the phone to a PC/Mac without SD card? Or is there any other way to back up SMS (WLAN/Bluetooth etc...)?

 

Thank you all!

 

Florian

What connection mode are you in MTP or MSC?
