    Not sure if this goes here or not, but I am having problems getting my Windows 7 machine to recognize my BH2.

    Is there a way to get the drives so I can install them so I can use my Mass Storage on my phone?

    Please help!

    You shouldn't need extra drivers to use the mass storage function of the phone. You just need the USB cable and mount the phone when it prompts "USB Connected". Windows will do the rest.

    The extra drivers are only needed to use debug mode and access the phone's systems remotely.

    Ok, well that's not happening. This is what I do:

    On the Phone:

    I have the debug unchecked
    The mass storage mode is checked

    On my PC:
    When I plug in the phone it says it's connected, but nothing happens on my phone
    I can see an extra drive under "computer" (windows 7), but when I double click it it acts like the drive can not be found.

    If I hook this up and run it thru the PC Studio it can not find a connection at all

    So at this point I'm very confused...

    The BH2 isn't compatible with Samsung PC Studio. I'm not sure if that may be affecting anything.

    The drive will be empty unless you click "Mount" on the phone. Its not automatic b/c it has to hide the SD card from the phone to show it to the computer (to do things safely). Mount will be an option under the notification bar.

    Ok, well that makes sense for the PC Studio part.

    *EDIT* And great! Thanks that helps a lot on getting into my SD card. I was starting to worry

    I've been trying to find a thread that will help me to get a different keyboard on this phone too. I've seen people with the HTC keyboards, and swype (tho I think that only for 1.6 and higher, no sure tho). Any idea on where to start? I've been searching for days on this forum with no luck so far.

    ....

    While the phone is connected via USB to your computer

    At the home screen

    Press Menu

    Press Notifications

    Press "USB Connected"

    Press Mount

    Another issue has arisen: Now that I know how to get into my SD card via PC hook up. When I am transferring files it will stop the connection all of a sudden. Seems to happen more when I'm transferring one pic or 2 pics at a time than a large amount, and it doesn't seem to matter it they are coming or going to the PC or phone.

    Any idea's on that???
