    I think its absolute crap that Motorola did not roll out a desktop application for their product. I can't access my droid via MY COMPUTER. I click on the icon and get no options and nothing happens. Its frustrating as all hell.... Anyone have any suggestions.

    P.s. not to mention this Droid Forum needs an overall to make it easier to use!

    Thanks
    Rick:mad:

    Perhaps because it's not designed to sync with the desktop, but the cloud (in the form of Google)?

    To mount the sdcard in the droid on the computer, plug the droid into the computer, then pull down the notification shade. You'll see "USB connected", select that and it will give you the option to mount the Droid as a disk drive on your computer, select "Mount" and the droid will show up as a disk drive. When done, do the "Safely remove" thing from windows, then on the droid pull down the notification shade again and select "Turn off USB storage".

    If you're looking to do contact sync, etc., that is best done through google and gmail.

    Have you tried to "mount the SD card" on the Droid when connected to the PC? You select it my sliding down the notification bar once the two are connected. That's the only way access it.

    I think most people will agree with me that the droid forums layout is pretty simplistic.

    which, imo, is what makes it nice... some forums are so slow to load and move around in...

    :welcome: to the Droid Forums Rick, although I think you could have made a little better entrance. As explained it's real easy to access your Droid via your computer, but I'm more curious as to what type of problems you are having with accessing the Forum. What do you suggest we do to make it easier to use?
