    Dilemma on How to USB Connect and Disconnect To/From PC

    This may seem as a "newbie" question but I am having some issues understanding the proper and most reliable way (procedure) to connect my Galaxy S2 via the USB cable, and disconnect it without causing file corruption, problems, etc.

    I have read about 5 or 6 different "methods" people use to do this but I also read the an improper precedure can cause freezing, corrupted SD card, etc ...

    Up to recently, I would:

    1. turn the phone ON
    2. connect the USB cable to the phone or to the computer ... not sure whether this has any bearing on the proecedures
    3. the phone shows a screen shoing that the phone is ready to accept the connection and I tap that
    4. a message opens on the PC and from there I can access the phone storage via USB and transfer files at wish.

    5. once I am done with the files, I go to the computer small icon to "safely remove ...." and click on that
    6. I then go to the phone and tap the orange message to exit the USB connection
    7. I unplug the cable.
    Once unplugged, I can also see some small and quick messages on the of the phone screen annoucing that it is doing "other stuff" (I don't remember exactly what but something about "SIM card" and other things.
    It goes rather fast, so I never had the time to really read what's going on at that point.

    Is this "procedure" correct?

    Is there a visual tutorial out there showing exactly the steps to take to USB connect/disconnect?

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Thank you!

    re: Dilemma on How to USB Connect and Disconnect To/From PC

    I've never worried about any of that. I just plug it in and do whatever I'm doing, then unplug it when I'm done. No procedure for me, and I've never had a problem. But I guess, if you aren't as lazy as me, it may be better safe than sorry.
