I want to know how my application can mount the microSD disk as the
USB mass storage upon receiving UMS_CONNECTED.

Thank you in advance.

How to mount the microSD disk programmatically?

 When I plug the T-mobile G1 phone into the PC via USB, it will give me
a notification "USB Connected", then I can go to the notification
screen to "mount" the SD. So, if this native Android app can do this,
I assume there should be an "unpublished" API for 3rd party apps to do
the same thing. Am I wrong?

 Thank you for the clarification. One more question, the older version
of Android firmware has the "Use for USB Mass Storage" option in the
Settings screen, and I saw android.provider.Settings.System has a
property named USB_MASS_STORAGE_ENABLED, if I set this property, is it
equivalent to the old "Use for USB Mass Storage" option? If not, is
there any plan to add this old option back in the future firmware
