the drivers it automatically installs are for access to the sdcard..

before I would plug in my phone.. and it would prompt me there is new hardware and it would take me through the wizard where I could inform the computer were to find the right drivers... now it automatically installs the drivers and they aren't the right oneS!!!

Any help pls!

Solved my problem with a little help from the folks at PDANet

I guess I uninstalled and reinstalled my phone too many times on my laptop, so it was picking up the wrong drivers.. so PDANet suggested I remove all usb drives installed for Android.. I had like 8!!!

I used this tool: USBDeview - View all installed/connected USB devices on your system
(the link to download the tool is toward the end.. after the 'feedback' section)

I removed all the android/htc drivers.. then plugged my phone in.. and it prompted me to locate a folder to install the drives like before!! and now I'm up and running!!! woo hoo!!
