    See this page here: Motorola Droid - How To Capture Screenshot | Mobile Technology Deals and Help

    Download the USB driver there. Once you've plugged in your droid (you may or may not have to enable debugging on it -- see that page for info how, if you do.), go to your control panel, and you should see the A855 bit with a yellow notification icon. You'll need to direct it to that driver. It might take a little while, but it'll update, and you'll be all set.

    It actually has nothing to do with your OS, by the way. :)

    After I installed the driver and plugged my USB into the PC and droid, I clicked on the USB icon in the pull down memu. It asked me if I wanted to mount the droid. I clicked yes. It transferred media files to my pc. But, I cannot see how to explore the card? On my PC, under the list of drives, it is listed like an external hard drive and clicking on it get a message of "insert disc". Properties show o bytes.

    Also, when I plug in the droid, the Motorola Media Link starts up. It sees the A855, but when I click on it to connect, it doesn't.:mad:

    Could this be a matter of outdated drivers? Maybe you should try to update drivers if there's any..I don't see any harm doing that.
