USB mass storage mode is no longer supported on latest Samsung Galaxy series including Samsung Galaxy Note II. What you have – Media device (MTP) and Camera (PTP) mode only. Luckily, there is a way to enable USB mass storage mode on Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Yes, it is working on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean firmware too. But have limitation which it is workable on external micro SD card only. It can’t mount internal sdcard as USB mass storage device. Furthermore, root access is required.

Oh no, USB mass storage is gone on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Samsung Galaxy S II. We should be able to use USB storage mode when enable USB debugging in Gingerbread. But it is not working on Android 4.0.3 ICS Samsung Galaxy S2. I have 2 options ~ Media device (MTP) and Camera (PTP) modes to choose only. No worry, USB storage mode is still available on Android 4.0 ICS Samsung Galaxy S2 but located in other place…
If you have Samsung Kies installed, whenever you plug in USB cable between Samsung Galaxy S II and PC, Samsung Galaxy S2 will be detected as GT-I9100 in Computer. And Samsung Kies will be loaded. You can disable Samsung Kies from loaded automatically by turn off Auto-run ~ Run Samsung Kies automatically when device is connected at Samsung Kies Tools – Preferences. You can read / write your Samsung Galaxy S2 files in this MTP Application mode. However, certain operation like unzip file to SGS2 directly is not possible in this mode.
