First off.....How's it going, everyone? Just got a Droid X a couple days ago, and everything I Google about it brings up plenty of hits to this site. So I figured I might as well join up!
Anyway.....This is my first smartphone, but consider myself at least averagely tech savvy. I've been trying to hook up my Droid to my laptop, via USB, in order to get some pictures/music/etc onto my phone. I hook up with the supplied USB cable, and when I go into My Computer, I can't double-click on the USB drive that the Droid is hooked up to, in order to get into the. It pretty much just freezes up my laptop, until I unplug the USB, and it unfreezes.
Also, when I go into a media sharing thing on my Droid, it says something about not finding the SD card. But I checked, and it's in there. I even pulled it and put it back in. I then even formatted it. Still no dice.
I'm following this tutorial... https://motorola-enterprise.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/48689/~/droid-x---transfer-files-to%2Ffrom-my-computer ...step for step, but I can't through part 3 (Select Device) of Step 6 (for Windows PC). I'm assuming it has something to do with the fact that the SD card isn't registering? In other words, I'm trying to get into and open something that the laptop and phone are saying isn't there; the SD card. My mouse cursor just turns into the "busy" symbol and freezes until I pull the USB.
During all of this, the notification line on my X is saying "Checking SD card" or something, over and over, and beeping.
Any idea what's going on?
Background on the phone itself: I just got it brand new from the Verizon Store a few days ago. I did the system update after I got it. I haven't messed with anything, other than some settings to save battery life and I downloaded like 4 apps. Nothing too invasive, I don't think. Like I said, this is my first smartphone, so I'm going to slow with messing with stuff, as I don't want to get in over my head, lol.
Sorry for the long post. Just hoping someone can help me out.
Oh.....something else I just thought of....I have an adapter that allows you to plug a micro SD card into a standard sized SD card adapter, to plug into my laptops card reader. Should I try doing that and seeing if the X's micro SD card can be found that way? Even so though, I'd still like to be able to just transfer files via USB, as opposed to keep having to pull the battery and pull the SD card everytime.
