Hi,

If you want to update your phone you should...

1) launch PC Companion
2) shut down phone
3) connect mini usb to Xperia X8
3) hold <back>and connect USB to PC

PC Companion will tell you that it detects Xperia X8 in recovery and start to install android eclair 2.1.1 software to the phone.

cheers
gabe

troubleshooting:
If PC Companion does not detect your phone...
a) usb drivers not installed
b) usb cable not connected properly or faulty usb cable

Wink Sony PC Companion worked in compatibility mode

I've had the same problem with Sony PC Companion not recognizing my Sony Xperia P phone. I am using a PC running Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium. Then I tried Troubleshoot Compatibility, which is found if you right click the desktop icon for PC Companion. The system suggested Windows XP Service Pack 2 compatibility, I accepted that, ran the program again and connected the phone. It worked! I now have full connectivity with the phone. Worth a try, see if this helps.
