    Has anyone plugged their droid in to a mac? I can't find drivers at motorola.com or any safe sounding source on the internet, and my mac doesn't recognize my droid. I want to transfer my music to the phone in this manner. Has anyone else accomplished this on a mac?

    Thanks!

    you don't need drivers. plug it in and pull down the notification bar to mount the droid.

    I'm following directions, but there is no notification that shows up indicating the USB and droid are connected. It's saying it's charging, but there is no notification that comes up on the phone. I am trying to install isyncr and am stuck.

    once your droid is plugged in, you will see a new notification pop up in the top left of your notification bar. pull the notification bar down to open your notifications. select the one that says 'enable sd card' or something like that. (doing this from memory).

    you will be asked if you want to 'mount the sd card'

    tell it yes.

    give a second and then you should see your droid appear on your desktop.

    I'm saying my droid is plugged in but I'm NOT seeing the new notification pop up. That's the problem that I don't know how to fix. I know it can't be the cable because the phone says it's charging. There is no notification.

    Do you have an SD card in your phone?

    Try a different usb port. Some of the laptops will not do high speed connections on one port if an external drive was or is attached to a different port. The first port you plug a high speed device is it, until you reboot.
