    since ive rooted my evo using unrevoked, my laptop (old xp) has been unable to detect my phone. im not getting a pop up or the "autoplay" isnt running when its plugged in under "DISK DRIVE" or "USB Debugging". Ive tried to reinstall HTC Sync but phone still cant be found.


    Any suggestions ?


    also, im trying to run nandroid back up via RA but it keeps saying "oops...blah blah.. please check restore folder"? or something like that... im attempting to flash a new ROM but im not sure why i cant get nandroid to back up.

    Any help with either of these issues will be greatly appreciated!!

    :D

    For the nandroid make sure you have at least 700mb of storage on SD card or more if you have a lot of stuff. For the usb can you connect to the computer through recovery. Also I am a Mac user so not that familiar with XP but I think you need the Evo drivers for it to recognize the phone.

    i just checked my available space on SD card and it says 0.00B

    i will use a different SD card and see if it works that way...

    as far as usb/recovery - im not clear on what you mean. i assume that maybe i should do something with the HBOOT at recovery??

    Can you be a timy bit more specific ! im anxious to flash this ELITE rom ...but i have these two minor issues in the way lol

    thank u!!

    while in recovery using RA you will see an option that says toggle usb or something like that. select it and it will allow you to mount your sd card to your computer, press the power button when done to back out. note: data transfers are slow while in recovery..

    also you may have just unchecked to ask you when you plug your phone into your pc. does it charge when plugged into computer? if so then pull the the notification bar down and click on charging.. then select disc drive. I like to use this feature to eject my phone when done.. pull down and click disk drive then select charging and it has ejected ;) you can check this setting in setting - connect to pc

    In recovery it says USBms or USB mass storage just plug the cable in to the phone and then hit that toggle and it should connect.

    My laptop still can't detect the phone... something with the drivers?

    :( ...frustrating! Thanks for providing me with the above info! I'll try those once I figure out why it can't find the phone.
