- Make sure that Phone Disk is installed. After you've downloaded and installed Phone Disk from our site, you may need to reboot your computer for it to work.
- Make sure that Phone Disk is open and running. If you don't see a yellow or gray mini Phone Disk icon in your menu bar (the top left corner of your screen), then you may have installed Phone Disk, but you haven't started it. You can start Phone Disk by opening your Applications folder in Finder and double clicking the Phone Disk icon.
- If you see a yellow Phone Disk icon in the top right corner of your screen but can't find the drive for your connected device, then from the Phone Disk drop down menu, click "Reveal in Finder."
- If you see a gray Phone Disk icon in the top right, maybe try reconnect your iPhone. If that icon doesn't turn yellow, then something is probably out of the ordinary. In some situations this can be resolved by reinstalling MacFUSE. MacFUSE is bundled in our installer, but sometime for various reasons users need to reinstall it. Download the latest version of MacFUSE here.
2. In System Preferences, select MacFUSE then "Remove MacFUSE."
3. If you set Phone Disk to start when the computer starts, you can remove this setting in System Preferences, then Accounts, then Log-in Items and then remove the Phone Disk setting.
- Phone Disk mounts the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to the native file system of the computer. Thus, with Phone Disk you can access files on your iDevice directly through any program installed on your computer (such as Word, Power Point, Photoshop, etc...). iPhone Explorer uses its own custom interface to view and modify files.
