    I have a laptop running Windows XP and it will not recognize the TB when it is connected. When I plug the phone into the computer it starts chagrining but neither the computer nor the phone. I have the phone set to "Ask Me" and the default connection to Disk Drive (I tried HTC Sync as well). Under hardware the TB is not recognized at all. I have tried all my USB ports. The TB will connect to my Windows 7 machine.

    Any thoughts?

    Stupid question, but you downloaded HTC Sync...right? Sounds like it doesn't have the drivers.

    I got Sync. I thought it was a driver issue, but when I pull up my list of hardware the phone is nowhere to be found?
