I am running into trouble trying to recover files from my Verizon LG EnV3 VX9200 phone. My computer, running Windows 7, will only read the phone as a Windows Portable Device and will not assign the phone a drive letter. My questions are these:

1. Is there any way to get this particular phone to show up on my computer with a drive letter? (I've already downloaded drivers and BitPim.)

2. Is there any recovery software out there that can read the files off of a Windows Portable Device?

Any suggestions would be helpful. (I am particularly looking to recover photos and videos.)

Lastly, any additional websites that focus mobile phones (mobile phone forums)?

Well, this is the right place. Annoyingly, literature on phone forensics is pretty rare, and I've not come across any as a cyberforensics forensics undergrad. The state of the art on phone forensics outside specialised places is.. poking at the phone, sadly enough. – Journeyman Geek Sep 20 '13 at 12:03
I figured that might be the case. At least I've given it a more thorough attempt. – MrSoyOhBoy Sep 20 '13 at 12:17
