    Stop VZW website from launching when connecting with USB

    Does the phone have any type of boot.ini or anything I can edit to stop it from launching Verizon Wireless - V CAST Media Manager when plugging my phone into my PC?

    Thanks

    On my Mac it launches a program called image capture. It started doing that about a month or so ago. Weird

    By my choice mine opens the Motorola Media Link package. I'm running Windows 7. All I had to do was install it to my computer. You can get it from Motorola directly at Motorola Media Link - Overview - Motorola, Inc. USA

    A bunch of people also prefer doubletwist. You can get it at Sync Android, PSP, BlackBerry, Pre: doubleTwist with Amazon MP3

    Again, both of these solutions are PC - not MAC.

    when you connect your droid x to your computer , right click on the motorola icon that's in the icons panel on the bottom right side of the screen and from there goto "When phone connects, launch..." and choose nothing.

    Mine is set to "Take no action", but still launches the website. It also launches a different website when I have USB Mass Storage set for USB connection.

    The interesting question is: Is the software being launched already on the PC, or on the phone itself?

    Wow, why didn't I think of that. Fail on my part, since I am a computer tech. There are a few motorola services running. I'll play around with them. Thanks man. Silly me, always overthinking things.

    Ya, its a service that be shut off . Its called Motoconnect Service. Disabled it and the website no longer opens. PC Mode and USB Disk mode still work just fine too.
