    Connect to computer, ALWAYS wants to load drivers!

    I've had my Droid 2 Global for almost three months now, and for the most part it's great.

    One thing, though -- when I decide to use it at my desk and connect it to My PC desktop running XP Pro, mostly to keep it charged, EVERY TIME a program starts that wants to install Motorola Driver 4.6.0.

    At the Motorola icon in the tray, I've checked "Do nothing when connected." It stays checked, so it's not that.

    What I want when the phone is connected is this:
    *charge my phone
    *let me look at the directories using Windows Explorer
    *let me copy files into and out of the phone's memory card

    Nothing more, nothing less. And oh, yeah, I don't have or want any music on it.

    Thanks for any help you can give me for setting the phone or the computer so I can keep it simple when I connect.

    You know, mine did that for awhile. But for the life of me I don't remember what I did to stop it. I'm not sure I did anything, maybe it stopped on it's own. I may have deleted everything Moto from my computer, but not sure that would help either. Hopefully someone else can give you more info. Sorry!

    I'll need WAY more detail than that. Motorola has several websites. "The drivers" is terribly vague. And the problem I've got is that the phone keeps trying to load the drivers, when I don't want to do a single thing using Motorola software. I learned with my Razr that Motorola software is squirrely and the best thing to do was to avoid it.

    I want the phone to just look like a hard drive when it's connected to the desktop. Does some Motorola software somehow start up and then do nothing?

    I just read the thing about antivirus. Is that an answer to my question or a separate topic that's part of your signature?

    Thanks.

    Its part of my signature. Just google Motorola drivers and its the first one, not hard to find at all. Heres a link anyways though - USB and PC Charging Drivers - Motorola Mobility, Inc. USA. I havent had any problems out of the drivers and you will need them anyways if you ever have to SBF.

    Did I tell you that I'm new here, and I'm new with the Droid 2? I guess I didn't tell you that this is the first smart phone I've had.

    Thus, being new here, I don't know for sure whether your signature is the stuff below the line or the stuff over under the avatar. I'd like to know what SBF means, as it's probably not Single Black Female, but none of the other 35 definitions I can find mean anything to me, not even the ones that sound vaguely computerish. Sequential Block Filemanager sounds most likely, though, but I like knowing what something is before I inflict it on my computer.

    Also, I had a couple of questions in my previous post, and I'd feel more comfortable if you'd answer them instead of pointing off to the side behind some curtain.

    Lastly, I uninstalled the one Motorola program that was on my computer, and behold -- when I connected the phone last night, nothing happened, just as I want. However, I just checked to verify, and now connecting the phone inspires the installation program that says it will install Drivers 4.6.0. And the computer no longer sees the card on the phone.

    I've learned that if you understand more about a device than the bare minimum to get the job done, you're way way better off. In that light, would you be so kind as to tell me why I need any drivers AT ALL when I don't want the phone to do a damn thing except be there?

    By the way, as to the link you provided in your signature, here's the part that I think is your signature:
    Droid 2 Global: Liberty Rom with EpicBlue n Bold Theme.

    As I mouse over that stuff, I find five links. I don't know if I want to SBF my D2G, but I'm guessing that's the one I want. Right?

    I'd sign up for dropbox to help you out, but I've already got a large subscription. Sorry.

    lets see if this helps you.
    this link USB and PC Charging Drivers - Motorola Mobility, Inc. USA

    will answer all your question about the drivers. as for connecting your phone to look at the sd card. I know on a D1 you have to mount your SD card. Not sure on your phone.
    You should be able to charge your phone without drivers. But you will get the annoying pop up box when you first connect your phone. hit cancel.

    Sigh. I bet "mount" doesn't mean place the card into the phone. I'm an audio/video installer so I know how lame it must sound when someone (me) doesn't understand some ordinary word that's used in a specific technical way... but what does "mount" mean?

    Yeah, well, if the Motorola software didn't make me hit "Cancel," then "Yes, I really freakin' mean" it in another window, then "Finish" in the original window, I might not mind just cancelling the action!




    By the way, when I'm typing, is there some way to get rid of the hyper ridiculously happy dancing banana and... and Black Coke can ( ? ) off to the right of the text window, that keep on moving and distracting me? They alone make me want to exit from this site!
