      Hey Grey,
      i would recommend you to redo the steps again,mostly in first attempt it will not be be detected.
      and restart your PC or your Mobile Device once after installation.

        Thanks for your quick reply!

        Restarted laptop, and phone. Carbon app on my phone still can’t detect my laptop as a USB Storage.

        Any other suggestions?

        • Reply Mohammed Siadath Ali Apr 8, 2013 11:28 AM

          i believe you need to reset your phone once and even try different USB ports, check if your USB is in Good Condition.
          Because the apps works perfectly good after restarting for the first time.

    Hi there

    can you help. whenever i try to download to the External SD card, the app asks me for an encryption code. any idea what this is?


    • Reply Mohammed Siadath Ali Aug 8, 2013 6:20 PM

      Hello Charles,
      i seem to sense you might have interrupted the backup process or else your device is rooted.
      Because the App does the Export to SD card perfectly with out asking for any encryption code.
      i recommend you to re-install your APP once and try again.
      Hope that works.
