    I've got a Galaxy S Vibrant.
    I've got the USB in debugging mode, I've got super-user rights.

    When I mount the Vibrant to my Desktop while it's booted in Ubuntu, it detects it off the bat and works fine.
    When I mount the Vibrant to my Dekstop while it's booted in Windows, it doesn't detect it.

    The desktop has no network connection.
    I need to move some files, but I don't have a USB drive and it doesn't have a CD drive. It's rather barebones.

    So, I was hoping to use my phone.

    Any ideas as to what's going on?

    Not quite sure why Windows 7 cant pick this up automaticaly, however people have had issues with the drivers there is a post on XDA that points to where you get drivers Once you get the 32bit drivers going, hook up the phone drag down the top menu on the phone and so long as it says "USB connected" tap it and hit mount. You should be good to go. Good luck.
