Windows 7: Cannot mount Samsung Android DCIM folder as a windows drive?

Cannot mount Samsung Android DCIM folder as a windows drive?

When I plug my Samsung SIII (ice cream sandwich) into my Windows 7 pro USB port, it mounts as a portable device but does not have a drive letter associated with it. This makes it difficult (impossible) for me to reference it for running scripts or with various file copy utilities. I do not want to have to "import" pictures, as that process offers no control over the file selection in my 64gb sim card. How can I mount DCIM directory as a regular windows drive with a drive letter, so that I can perform normal file folder operations on it?

BTW. To add insult to injury, I only want a half dozen pictures out of the many GB in the DCIM folder. However, since I cannot see thumbnails, I cannot pick out the few which I would be happy to drag and drop, if I knew which ones they were.

is there not a setting on the phone when you plug it into the pc to change it from charge only to mount as disc drive,
i have an HTC with this ability, so im just having a guess as to the samsung.
but i would think it must have the function somewhere on the phone, then it shows in "computer " as a drive with a letter.

i did find this which is an app that will mount your external SD card, but do so at your own risk ,read the comments etc...
