    everything seemed to be going so well, until now!

    when i try to connect via USB to my PC, i just keep going rond in circles- because the phone keeps re-booting and asking for my pin code-- and won't seem to connect as a mass storage device- although it does appear to be charging

    has anyone else had this problem- with this or any other rom?!

    is it something to do with this?

    Are those usb drivers for the Huawei ascend? That's a completely different phone.

    Surely even Windows doesn't need any special drivers for usb mass storage access - the phone should just identify as a usb drive? (Would test, but don't have a Windows machine at work).

    You dont need drivers on windows, no.

    I had fewer problems getting it to work in windows than in Ubuntu.

    ah, i didn't know that ther was a phone called that

    its odd because its only something that i has just started aswell- as i have been able to connect it before now

    obviously i'm asking you to take a bit of a guess here- but would you think its the phone or the PC that has a problem here?

    thanks guys- might sound simple, but i uninstalled and reinstalled HTC drivers a couple of times-- and it appears to have fixed the issue

    except- now there seems to be another issue

    it won't let me back up my SD CARD contents- its saying i can't copy the folder 'battery history'; because the parameters are incorrect?!

    i'm basically just trying to copy all the folders and paste them into another on my desktop- is there another way of doing this?!

    well i have managed to back up the SD card using the back up tool on my pc- but its telling me that there are quite a few files that will not be restored properly eg.

    like my battery stats (which i assume isn't a biggie) -- but quite a few other things aswell

    the backup tool?

    surely you should just drag and drop the folders or select all, copy, paste

    thats what i thought- but when i did that originally it said that certain folders and files could not be copied, or were in the incorrect format, so thats why i tried the more formal apporach of the tool- cos i thought it might be more thorough, but it appears to have hit the same problems

    i don't mind losing some stuff aslong as it isn't vital- and its hard to tell if it is!

    "cannot copy battery history the parameter is incorect"

    hmm is that a hidden folder?
    i dont have a folder with that information.
