My computer is reconizes that I have new hardware but is asking for a cd to be inserted??? So what am i doing wrong here?? I have a gateway with Windows Vista.

    Yes download with your Droid and transfer it to your PC.

    Make sure you get the correct installer.

    I downloaded pdanet. I picked the right one for windows xp. I plugged the phone into the computer. I went to menu on my Droid, notifications, usb connected,. Why isn't there a icon on my laptop.. what am I missing here...
