    USB to PC connection not working

    I am unable to connect my Droid to my PC. I get an unknown device in the computer management window. I tried to delete it to force a new driver install with no luck.

    you have to mount it first - did you do this?

    to do this, once its plugged in via USB to the pc, go on the droid, drag down the top bar and click on USB connected.

    click mount and now the computer should recognize it as just the memory card.

    what does the icon say when you pull down?

    theres not a mount option in the toolbar - you have to select usb connected to get the option to mount or not

    Hey, thanks for the help in advance-

    I go to "usb connected" and get the mount/don't mount option, and click mount, but it doesn't show up on my computer- hp laptop running XP,

    I am also using pdanet to connect to the net via the same laptop, could that have anything to do with it? usb debugging has to be checked to get pdanet to work.

    Here is what I get with PDANET loaded also.

    I plug in the USB cable and it notifies!
    The pitchfork icon shows on the tool bar!
    I swipe down on the tool bar and I see two items:
    USB Debugging connected
    USB connected

    I selection USB connected and it asks if want to:
    Mount or Don't Mount

    Are you going to "my computer" (XP) on your computer and looking for the device in the list of devices? Mine shows up on the list of drives and devices with removable storage as "removable disk [E:]"

    When I click on that then I see the folders etc on the phone.
