    Anyone else getting a tab for Verizon's V CAST media manager popping up in your browser every time you charge your Droid X via computer? Kind of annoying; if anyone knows how to stop it I'd appreciate it.

    Yes. Look at your hidden notification icons on your desktop. Should be down there on the right. Look for the "M" for Motorola. Right-click on that and you should have an option checked that launches the Verizon Media Manager page. Uncheck it and your good.

    Anyone else notice that VCast Media Manager is only for 32-bit OS? Won't even load on my Win7 64-bit laptop.

    Ah ha. Should have thought to look on the computer itself, duh. But I hide virtually all my icons so I didn't see the "M" anyway. Many thanks.

    I was getting it, but finally did a system restore before I installed the motorola drivers today. Windows 7 still sees the droid as another portable drive, so I'm happy now, because that killed it.

    I used it the first time I connected my X to my PC...thinking it would have gotten better in 2 years since I had the LG Voyager. It has not changed much at all, still a boring utility. You can skip all of that and just use your windows explorer to copy and data back and fourth....

    just my .02

    That's what I use on my Windows 7 64 bit with no issues too. I tried using DoubleTwist and Windows Media Player but they weren't transferring my playlists over correctly. The only thing that I saw with Motorola's Media Link was that is was rather plain (not a big deal for me), and that the playlists took a while to show up on my phone. I don't know if this had to do with any indexing on the phone, software, combination of both, etc., but when I opened the media player on the phone the next day all my playlists were there.

    I've got an Incredible that just got 2.2. This stupid popup keeps happening to me. However, I don't see a little M for Motorola, since this is obviously an HTC phone and I don't even have any software syncing software installed. Any solutions?

    Stop Windows pop-up when connected via USB: (instructions for Incredible - guess they'd be the same for the DX?)
    Dial ##7764726
    Hit Call
    Type Password is 000000 (6 0s)
    Hit Feature Settings
    Choose CD ROM
    Click Disable
    Hit menu, commit modifications (it will say no item changed)

    The trick worked on my Incredible... that Verizon software is annoyingly intrusive.

    Thanks, kayst. This worked for me. Leaves me wondering what we would all do without forums. Without your instructions, how would any typical user have a clue how to do this?

    I agree - very annoying - thanks!

    On the VCMM website, when I took the "Getting Started" option, Trend Micro BLOCKED the download site.

    I'm glad it did now!!

    Unfortunately "Feature Settings" did not show up as an option on my Droid X. Any suggestions where else CD ROM would be located in this list of options?


    Regards,

    I downloaded it as the only disappointment I have with the Andoid is it has nothing that compares to Itunes to manage your media. I spent a couple hours downloaded music art and updating all my files.

    Plus Side:
    It has an easy to use Auto-Correct feature that will search for and suggest missing data on your songs.

    Down Side:
    After updating all my music and copying the files back into my phone (I found no features that just allow you to sync). After all that none of the changes I made using the V-Cast appeared in my phone. All the songs with unknown genres or albums had not changed. I tried this using both Power Amp my favorite music player and the stock player. With both the V-Cast changes had not been applied.

    Summary:
    So unless V-Cast comes out with a music playing app that syncs with the media manager I just don't see this helping with anything. :(

    Tried this but none of the Options were CD ROM or anything like it.
