    Hello everyone:)

    I ran into the first problem with my Droid- and I am sure it is not the Droid itself:p

    I am running Vista32- I have Motorola Media Link installed. When I plug my Droid into the PC, I get a mass storage device that installs OK most of the time, and an "unknown device".. Even when I mount the SD from the phone, I still see no Drive in my computer:( The unknown device never installs.

    I have tried almost every suggestion i have seen.. reboot pc..reinstall MML, reboot phone.. no luck:(

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance for your help:)

    For me, all the mass storage drivers installed automatically. I had to use install the Moto drivers only because I wanted to tether with PDAnet.

    Vista should have those drivers preinstalled. You could try going into the device manager and uninstalling all the Droid drivers and try again.

    Other than that, I don't know what the issue could be.

    There are TWO versions of PDANet so be careful for those installing for the first time. Get the most updated and it will install the correct drivers for you.

    This laptop I'm on now is my last Vista machine and it worked like a charm.

    Well no luck with the device manager either.. it's my PC(which has a score of issues anyhow that I have just put up with instead of fixing like I should...).. so it's reinstall time.

    Fun part is I have about 70 programs in here to reinstall in the process:rolleyes:..lol..
