    Hey folks,

    I poked around here and couldn't find an answer. I just picked up a new DroidX. I noticed when I connect it to my computer, a ring tone starts playing...and playing...and playing.

    I can't get the thing to turn off, nor can I change any settings for it to stop entirely. This happens when I plug the USB cord into the phone and the port on my desktop. It happens when I attempt to tether as well.

    I'm using LauncherPro on an unrooted DroidX. I ported everything over from my Moto Droid. Everything else works perfectly.

    I attempted to search the phone settings and thought I found it with Settings>Sound>SD card notifications. I unchecked that, but the sound still plays.

    Any fixes for this? I don't want this thing firing off every time I tether my laptop at work.

    Thanks. dancedroid

    do any other windows open up? i know there is a motorola sync thing that will automatically run on your computer when you hook the phone up. if it's that, right click the motorola logo in your task bar and there should be an option along the lines of do nothing at launch.

    It's already checked 'do nothing'. This is something on the phone, I think.

    Ok...

    ...let me clarify. I need an answer on how to turn this off. I'd prefer not to get random guesses.

    When I plug my phone into the computer for charging, or tethering, a ringtone (the default ringtone) goes off and playes for several seconds. It is obviously something on the phone, and if it's there, it should be able to be turned off. I can't figure out how to do it even though I've searched through the various settings.

    Does someone actually know how to turn this off?

    i think i have a solution for you. go here and download one of these silent mp3 files:

    Magic's Place - Minidisc Downloads

    then put it on your sd card and set it as the notification sound. that should be the end of it.
