my computer has recently stoped detecting my mt3g only had the phone for about a month i get no notification anymore tried the debugging mode with no luck tried it on the my laptop and desktop too. could it be the usb cord?
Any mini USB cable will work to transfer data and charge your phone. Especially any HTC cable. My wife has an old HTC Touch and I can use her charger and computer connector, they all fit the port in the Mytouch.
So any mini USB like this -
However, in my experience, these retractable kinds -
Will charge the phone, but will not transfer data or be recognized by a computer when plugged in, however they will still charge the phone when plugged in to a computer. Each of these cables can be found on ebay for really cheap, like literally 1-3 dollars including shipping, just FYI.
And, strangely enough, I do see the best transfer speeds with the Mytouch cable. Not by much, only 1 Mbps faster, and even then it depends on the kinds of files. Anyway, good luck!
i feel sorry for the people who didn't find a significant answer here. as i have spent the last two hours finding an answer to this problem only to find that on this particular post carrying the "android" label, which one finds promising as it carries the companies label."
I have your definitive answer, from start to finish and in plain english that all understand. here goes...
first you need to set up usb debugging. follow this path
1. select "all programs"
2. select "settings"
3. select "applications"
4. select "development"
5. make sure that the box for "usb debugging" is checked in the right hand column.
next we need to adjust your default connection type.
ok, now go ahead and connect your usb to your laptop/PC, and then connect the other end to your phone.
you should have a "notification" in the "notification bar" under the section labeled "ongoing" that says two things. 1st- "usb debugging connected" 2nd-"disk drive." if you have that you are gold. if not, recheck your steps.
go to "My computer" and select the removable disk drive. mine labels it as "BD-ROM(Drive H)." but as we all know, uniformity is widely un-uniform.
from here it is a drag and drop. find the files you wish to add to your phone, click and hold, then drag them to this destination (BD-ROM(Drive H)). from here your phone will recognize them and your process should be complete. if this does not fix your issues, please feel free to email me at email@example.com.
I hope this fixes all your issues, if not, let me know and you will get some specialized help.
i think having the froyo update on the mytouch 3g is a very well planned and accidental perfect plan. i absolutely sucks on the mytouch but it is still better than 1.6 and 1.5 for sure. however there are so many things froyo can do that the mytouch can not. usb connecting? i have to reboot my phone every time i want to connect to my computer. just because the phone cant really handle all the new cool stuff it can do that it has been deprived of. mostly because of lack of RAM.. but i do like it better than any other stock os out there
yah ever since the update I have problems, I most def do not think it is the cable, me and my husband have the same phone and 2 cables and 3 computers and we tried both cables, both phones and all computers, it will charge but not mount, it would be weird that all of a sudden both those cables would have problems.....just saying
so this leaves indeed the update as the main source of trouble
I was (actually still am) hopeful about your solution kriddle, but you lost me at 3. select "connect to pc" since I do not see this in my settings......please help!
after some more research found another thread and there they suggest to re-boot your phone and then hook it up, this works, the pain is, as soon as you hook your phone up to something else it will again not mount (like charger), so you will have to re-boot every time before you want to mount it.........I'd rather have a more permanent solution though
