    Connecting Eris to PC to transfer files

    I have done a bit of searching and have not been able to resolve this issue. I am unable to connect the Eris to a Vista PC to transfer files. Are there drivers available for the device?

    All you should have to do is connect the cable from your Eris to a USB port on your computer. A notification should come up on the Eris. Tap on it to bring it up and mount the phone to the computer. This turns the phone's SD card into a USB flash drive while it's connected. Then using the file manager in Vista (or XP or Win7) transfer your files. Unmount the phone, disconnect the cable and the files you transferred are now ready for use on the Eris.

    You're welcome. FYI, Windows 7 recognized the Eris by name right away.

    Red face Under "computer" in Vista there is a Drive G but

    I don't know if that is what you guys are talking about "recognizing Droid"? It also came up with a solution to install a driver but I elected not to do that since I did not know what SDK version I had or what that was talking about. I also don't know what file manager you are talking about. Do I make a folder on the droid? As you can see I don't have any idea about what I am doing. Please help or tell me what to read. Thank you.

    File manager=Windows Explorer (in Vista/7 it's the folder icon on the taskbar on the bottom of the screen).

    And yes once you mount the "drive" (the phone's SD card) Windows will show it as a drive letter in Explorer. So you can create folders, copy files from the PC to the phone, delete files, etc. It gets treated just like any other hard drive or flash dive would.

    The phone doesn't have the ability to do the file management so it gets done in Windows while you have the phone connected as a "drive". Once the folders are created, files copied, then you un-mount the phone from the computer and the phone and it's apps can then use the files/music/video that you put on.

    Look for the notification on Drioid

    If you are having trouble connecting to your PC, click on the Menu button on the bottom of the phone then go to Notifications. Look for the USB storage notification. Tap it and you will get an option to Mount it. Press Mount and then your PC will recognize it as a drive with storage.

    transfering files fron windows vista to droid eris

    After several failures of transfering my files from my vista pc,i finally figured out how.Try connecting your droid eris to your windows vista pc using a usb cable. on the very top left corner of your eris screen, you will see a usb notification that you are connected.Tap that, then hit MOUNT and you should have a window popped up on your pc. Your point will be under MY COMPUTER which is REMOVABLE DRIVE H. Select the files you want to transfer and drag them to that removable drive H. Unplug usb cable to view the files you transfered to your DROID ERIS. GOODLUCK!!

    One small clarification: It may be a different drive letter, not necessarily H. But it should show up as a removable drive just like a thumb drive!
