SO, starting awhile back, Apple, Samsung, Google etc, stopped allowing the auto mount of a cellphone when I plug it into your computer as a USB Storage device.  Meaning, older phones mounted the device and gave it a drive letter.  (e.g. E, or G or whatever). 


Now, its just MTP or Camera mode, which hides a ton of files and options to the user.  This also keeps me from running an antivirus or other programs on it. 


So, anyone know how to mount current Android or IOS phones with a drive letter?  That way programs like Recurva(sic), antivirus, and other tools can be used on it with attached to a computer?


I know its because of the generic file systems on them, but I am studying using forensic tools and can seem to trick it into running on my old phones.  (got 3 of them, 1 iphone, 1 android, and one windows phone). 


Training for a cert in forensic and just playing around right now.
