    Sync Droid with Windows 7?

    Anyone doing this successfully?

    Windows doesn't recognize it, the Motorola Media Link app says there is no handset connected. What am I missing here?

    Some people reportedly have to download the driver from motorola to get this to work. But as a base question, are you going into notification and mounting the SDcard?
    Resistance is futile.

    Please make sure you mount your SD card by dragging down the notification bar, click USB storage and then clicking mount.

    If that still doesn't work here are the Motorola drivers:

    I did not have any trouble getting the motorola media link program to see my phone; I am using Win. 7. Just make sure you mount like Stigy said..

    You know..I gotta say.. it kind of sux that you have to manually mount this device every time you connect it. It should default.. or have an option to default to automatically mounting when it plugs in to a USB port. I am rather surprised when the iPhone and other phones have been out for years that contain memory/SD cards that do this, that this phone does not have an automatic way to do this... or did I miss that it DOES have a way to do this every time and perhaps it's only the first time you connect it you have to select that?

    I do understand that there are two modes.. connect as SD/flash card, and the other mode is for developers to use the USB to deploy/test apps on the device with as I am using that other mode myself.

    1) some people don't want it to sync with their computer, they'd rather just have it charge the device and be down with it.

    2) linux... just remember.. linux

    I figured it out, it wasn't the Droid it was my laptop. Under Win7 none of my USB ports work...wonderful.

    Hooked it up to my Win7 PC and can copy just fine. Charging still doesn't work though, will try those drivers linked above, thanks!

    Still can't get Media Link to see Droid

    So.... I downloaded the Media Link software and mount my USB card on the Droid... but although Windows 7 sees the device (as a regular storage device), Media Link will NOT see the phone!

    What am I doing wrong? I downloaded the drivers above but am not sure where to put the files.

    Any help appreciated.

    I am running windows 7 x64 with no issues. Driver loaded right up and phone charges. I use DoubleTwist for my media manager and it works perfect and even will re-encode the video to supported format!
