    Hello everyone!

    I just purchased the Vibrant and love it. However, I am having issues trying to transer files (ringtones and pictures) from my pc to my droid. I followed the transfer steps. However,when I get to the "plug in USB cable" step, I don't get any window on my pc to show that the Samsung. In My Computer, it shows removable storage E: & F:. But when I try to open either, it says to "insert disc into Drive E:.

    What seems to be the problem? I'm not an expert on computers or phones so I don't know where to start.

    Thanks for any help with this.

    On your phone go to :

    Menu -> Settings -> Applications -> USB Settings -> Turn USB DEBUGGING "on"

    You may also want to download "auto mount SD card" from the marketplace - and set it to automount your phone when you connect it to the computer.

    The only options my phone gives me after USB Settings are: Samsung Kies, Media player, Mass storage and Ask on connection
