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
following path:

Applications -> Settings -> Applications -> Development ->
USB Debugging on

I imagine you probably already have this set.

Hope it helps,
