    I have set the phone for USB debugging. I will select it as a hard drive and yet my computer will still not recognize it and I would love to be able to just click and drag files and folders onto my phone.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Sounds as though you dont have the USB drivers on your computer...

    I installed HTC sync and it installed the drivers I needed...

    Does it at least show the drives? Sometimes I have to set it to charge only then back to USB drives before I can ccess anything.

    I thought I had the same problem. It's a simple fix. From the Main Screen hit the menu button then Settings then Connect to PC then Default Connection Type. You can change the setting from Charge Only to Disc Drive. This should allow your PC to recognize your phone and you can drag and drop files all day long.

    Hope this helps.

    Okay, still not working.

    USB Debugging is on
    Connect To Setting is Disk Drive

    So, right now. HTC Sync is not connecting to my phone and my bluetooth is not connecting to the computer either. What the heck?

    If all you want to do is access your phone storage as disk, you should not need to enable USB debugging. USB debugging is something else, which requires drivers that are included with the SDK.

    If the USB connection type is set to "disk drive" in your phone settings, the phone should appear as 2 removable drives when you connect it to your PC. One drive is your SD card; the other is the phone's internal file system. If you don't see this, try it with a different PC.

    I know this is weird, but sometimes I can only access the phone as storage (i.e. not charge only) if I plug it into my computer while my phone screen is on and unlocked.

    OP,
    I apologize if I'm oversimplifying, not meaning to. Power up phone normally, set connection to disk drive, plug in usb, wait for Windows box to pop up asking u what u want to do. Choose "view files and folders".

    Okay, I had to install a different HTC Sync and drivers. I can connect via USB. Anyone else having issues connecting via bluetooth?

    EDIT: DISREGARD...I figured it out.
