    V-Cast

    I am sorry if this has been asked and answered. I did a search and I can not find anything that answers my questions.

    First let me explain I am kinda a newbie. I had the Dinc for about 5 months with one hardware issue after the next. After they sent me out the 4th Dinc and another issue came up, they asked me if I would switch to a different droid (X - 2 or the Samsung). So I picked the X.

    When I had the Dinc and I plugged it in to my laptop I had the options of mount as disk drive, charge only etc. There was an option on the Dinc if you went into the programming (##778) and there was a way to check load as CD enable/disable. (not having the phone anymore I don't remember what setting it was in. But it is not an option on the X. (unless maybe rooted?)

    Bottomline my problem is... everytime I plug the X into my laptop, on Charge Only, it loads the V-Cast Manager, opens a web page, before I installed the V-cast Manager it would open up my dvd viewing software. I can't see the files on the X the only drive that I can view is is the SD card.

    Is this normal? do I have another bad egg? Is the only way to fix this is rooting the phone? Do I have to use the V-cast Manager to transfer files?

    Any info is greatly appreciated. sorry for such a long post to get to a few minor questions.

    Thank you

    I remember having the same issue and i *think* that if you right click the v-cast icon in the launchbar (system tray) you will see an option to stop loading it. If this isn't correct i am sure someone will pipe in

    Oh man i remember stopping this awhile back ago. But the V-cast thing popping up when on charge only should not happen only on pc mode or whatever it is. But no you dont need to use that program to transfer files. If i remember correctly the way to remove this is on the tray icon that pops on the lower right corner if using windows. You right click on it and there should be some settings/options and there should be the option to stop that from loading that when plugged in every time. You can transfer files by mounting the sd card with the USB mount option on the phone when u plug it in. then you can browse the files on the sd card and put music,pics, or videos in that.
    Hope this helps any.

    Look in the tool tray on your pc. Find the motorola "M". right click. Click on "automatically load" then click on "nothing".

    I appreciate everyone telling me how to shut down the V-Cast but that is only part of the problem.


    Is this normal to have to use V-Cast to transfer files? Can't I just copy and paste or drag and drop from my computer connected as disk drive.

    Do I have another bad egg? Because I can not mount as disk drive, mass storage, I can only do charge only or windows media sync

    Is the only way to fix this is rooting the phone? Do I have to use the V-cast Manager to transfer files?

    other issues involve pictures randomly being deleted, entire folders.
    When I do try and connect as mass storage it keeps trying to prepare sd card and always making that connection tone (like every 10 seconds)
    Alarm clock some days it rings other days it just vibrates

    First question...Have you installed the Motorola Drivers for the Droid X from Motorolas website?--->Motorola 4.7.1 Driver with MotoConnect*<---
    I would download that driver pack, install it, and then reboot your PC. After booting back up, then plug your phone in via USB cable and see if the problem persists.

    Fact is, there is absolutely NO REASON you should be forced to use V-Cast for anything. Thats why there are 4 options listed for the USB connection on the phone...so that you have options of how to transfer/sync files.

    Try the driver pack and let us know if it helps or has no effect and we can go from there...

    You need to change the setting on the phone itself man. When you plug your phone in there's a notification that pops up on the phone. Pull down the dropdown, click on the notification, it'll give you some options. You want to select "Usb mass storage".

    I am not sure who this message is directed towards but it has really nothing to do with the issues that I was asking about.

    Actually, its exactly the answer to your question. When in usb mass storage your phone and sdcard work exactly like an external hard drive, meaning vcast is pointless
