    Hey all!

    Having an issue with USB connection and my Tattoo!

    Let me give you the background.

    I got my HTC tattoo, got it home, plugged it in and it did the automatic install and worked fine, HTC Sync worked as well as data transfer. Sadly there was a problem with the phones battery and it was promptly returned to vodafone. I was supplied with a brand new Tattoo which works fantasticly, the only problem I have is that it will no longer connect to the PC and im unable to connect to HTC Sync or data transfer.

    I have no errors at all on screen and the green light on the Tattoo lights up to signify that a connection is being made via usb (and charges the phone)

    Heres what ive tried so far:

    1: Ive uninstalled HTC Sync and Drivers and removed all traces of them from my computers registry and re-installed the software and drivers and restarted the phone and computer = nothing

    2: Ive checked through the phone from start to finish and am unable to find anything at all that would stop data connection.

    3: I've checked Device manager and it shows nothing about the phone when connected

    4: The "safely remove hardware" icon in the bottom right taskbar does not appear.

    5: HTC Sync doesnt recognise that a phone is connected when plugged in.

    Please can somebody help!? I'm desperate to get some music on my phone!

    What OS are you running ? I still can't get HTC Sync to work on Windows 7
    Do you have USB debugging enabled on your handset ?
    When you connect, are you prompted for mode (HTC sync or disk drive) ?
    Have you installed the latest / correct USB drivers on your PC ?

    I now have syncing nicely with a XP laptop and can sync Outlook / etc as well as installing apps although I did have to use the latest HTC USB drivers (Google for it).

    Windows Vista - 86x

    Unsure on if I have USB Debugging enabled.

    I'm not prompted by the phone for disk use or sync use (have it ticked to notify)

    Will try the HTC USB Drivers when I get home from work!

    Although they state for Windows 7, might fix Vista problems as well.

    i had the same problem with my girlfriends HTC Tattoo, i`m using Win 7.

    I got it to work by firstly connecting it to pc, then rebooting the phone whilst its still attached to pc via usb cable.

    I still can't connect using Win 7 but I am running HTC sync v2.06 as opposed to 2.04 in the referred article. I can connect to phone & browse SD card but can't install apps.

    Can anyone who has this working upgrade to 2.06 to see if they can still sync ?
