    New Moto Droid user. General questions.

    Just got my Droid today and have some questions about it.

    1. I did not receive any desktop software, such as like I did with my Storm. I tried connecting the Droid to both my desktop which is running Win. 7, and my laptop which is running XP, and neither one of them picked up the phone. It prompted for it to install the driver, but it said it could not complete the process because it could not find the proper drivers. What do I do?

    2. How do I upload pics, music, yadda yadda to the device?

    3. Is there a thread that could be linked that would take me to general users guide that goes in depth about functions and such? I didn't recieve any information of the phone besides a small pamphlet that showed the bare minimums to operate the phone.

    4. Is there any "must have" apps? Then the "you really should check out.." apps?

    I'm sure that there are more questions, but these are the main ones I have currently..


    I apologize if this has been beaten to death.

    1. Here's the USB driver. USB and PC Charging Drivers - Motorola USA

    2. Plug your phone into the USB.... open the notification panel on your Droid... select "mount usb"

    3. Here's the manual... Motorola Droid - User Manual and the FAQ section Droid FAQ - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum

    4. Here ya go. There are several other threads that are similar. http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...roid-apps.html

    1) Did you go to the notification tab and select to mount the usb? if you dont do this the device will not be recognized. at least on ubuntu or mac, but im pretty sure its the same on windows

    2) I drag and drop just like a flash drive but some people sync using several programs.

    4) I use pandora a lot, shazam, maybe Astro the file manager, and several games. Look in the apps section.

    1. I am running vista and it picked up the phone no problem. it just looks at it as removable storage

    2. once you get the phone connected to the pc, pull down the notification bar and press the mount sd card button. after that you can go on your pc and copy files directly onto the sd card in the phone

    3. sorry, i dont know of any specific threads, check the sticky'ed threads at the top of the forums

    4. i like handcent sms, google goggles, astro file manager off the top of my head

    Swype... definitely a 'must have' you won't find on any tech websites!

    Beautiful Widgets. Best looking widget and great weather animations.
    Also the 2.1 Genie Widget (search forums for "2.1 Genie") has weather widget/information and a news widget that's customizable as to what news it subscribes to
