I am just guessing here as I don't have your phone, but do you have to
turn usb debugging on in Android OS on the phone to get it to be
mountable? It might be on the phone under something similar to the
Applications -> Settings -> Applications -> Development ->
USB Debugging on
I imagine you probably already have this set.
Hope it helps,
