    I have the same problem with my firepod, I have sent it in for repair, I don't know what company you were talking to but when I called, I was talking to a human on the second ring of the phone, I was transferred to a tech and talking to him in less then 5 minutes. All the workers at Presonus were very nice, they knew what the problem was and sent me an email with info on how and what to do to send it in. Maybe it costs 85 bucks, but I have had pretty good luck with my firepods so far, so it is worth it to me. I have talked to Presonus a couple of times and every time I have had the same result. As a matter of fact the second time I called them I asked them that if I could get a copy of cubase LE4 since my firepods had just LE with them, and they sent me a copy no charge in less then a week. So I give Presonus a thumbs up!!!!

Yes, i agree with many of the comments above as far as having them repair the unit adequately.  this is the second time within a year that something has gone wrong with our firepod- (for 50 bucks more you can get a motu/8pre!) some of these comments have been stated , but i would check everything out before sending/repairing-
1.check firewire cables, new cable,+  connection to firepod (flimsy) 2.check with another computer - should check out and sync automatically without installing drivers (they say)-  -  in/outs preference window/audio; audio/midi set up window         pref/audio/driver in daw
3.have the computer and firepod connected with the firewire-   and then do a restart on the computer- sometime this will  sync -  also might try turning the firepod off and then back on with firewire cable connected to computer
4. if none of this works- either send it back and cross your fingers- or junk the thing (all this wasted time!) and step up to a motu/8pre-ive heard good things about this for only $50 more

Posted on Jun 20, 2008

Don't send it back. they've repaired mine it took 5 weeks to repair it plus time for shipping. they didn't even repair it correctly the inputs were so loose that the cable was literally falling out of the unit. I had to send it back again this time they told me it would only be one week. I told them I wanted a brand new one. they refused to give me another one unless it fails again. they're trying to repair it as slowly as possible so the warranty runs out. i'd never pay these guys money to fix my firepod. When i call for an update on the progress I'm on hold for at least 20 mins everytime no matter what time of day it is. I can watch an entire tv show before some one picks up. they feed you the same ******** too. it's being worked on right now and they're making sure the unit is working before it is fixed. HA!! I'm trying to find the ceo's phone number or something becuase no one else wants to help me.

Could be a bad cable, bad firewire card in computer, or the unit is damaged.  Might want to connect the unit to someone else's computer with a new Firewire cable.  If this doesn't work, chances are that the unit is defective.  I have the same problem right now and I'm having to send the unit back to Presonus.  They charge $85 for parts labor and the return shipping.  The replace the entire board, so it's like getting a new unit.  Hope that helps.

Setting up HTC Sync to recognize your phone

After installing, set up HTC Sync to recognize your phone.

1. From the Home screen, press MENU, and then tap Settings > Accounts & sync.

2. On the Connect to PC screen on your phone, tap HTC Sync and then tap Done. Your phone attempts to find HTC Sync on your computer. Wait for a few seconds for the process to finish.

3. If your phone displays a message indicating that it's unable to find HTC Sync, try disconnecting and reconnecting the USB cable, and then repeat step 2.

4. When the Phone Connection Wizard is displayed on your computer, click Next.
Enter the name you want for your phone, and then click Finish.

Check the HTC Sync icon at the bottom-right side of your computer screen. If it appears green in color, that means your phone has successfully connected with your computer and HTC Sync recognizes your phone

=========================================================

If still no go try this .

Unplug the phone from the PC, restart both the phone and the PC. When the PC is done booting, plug your phone in and see if the autorun box pops up.

How do i sync music to my htc freestyle phone to my laptop?


Thanks for visiting FixYa!

Your HTC Freestyle uses the Brew operating System.

As such, the HTC Sync program for Brew will only synchronize Outlook contacts and calendar or Outlook Express contacts between your computer and your phone.

The sync software is pretty basic but does the job. If you want to sync music and media with the device then this won't do that for you. Instead you'll have to sync media to the storage card.

The Freestyle comes with a Music application that gives you the ability to play music that's on your microSD card. To load music on your microSD card: Connect your device to your PC via the supplied microUSB cable. Select Disk Drive from the popup menu. Once your device is connected, it will be listed as Removable Disk Drive under My Computer (Click Start > My Computer) and open it. From there, you can simply drag and drop the music files onto your device's microSD card.

If you wish to download the HTC Sync program, click on the link (below). At the HTC support page, READ the instructions, then scroll to the bottom of the page - click on the little blue arrow (under Download) - and select HTC Sync for Brew.

How can I transfer pictures from the phone to a computer


connect the phone to your computer, the phone will promt you to select option as "Active sync"or "Disk mode", select disk mode, and you can find the phone memory card in your My Computer section. You can then copy the photos from there. Or if you want to do it through Active sync, you should first install Active sync on your PC.

install HTC Sync from that adress or from your getting started cd what was with your phone when u buyed it.

After install you can connect your phone with computer using the usb cable what was in box also.

and then under your my computer you can found removable disk(this is your smartphones memory card where your pictures are.)

Also after the installing on htc sync u are able to copy paste your favorite songs mp3-s do your smartphone and listen them.

I want to upgrade ma htc pro 2????can you please help me


  1. Go to Aadress http://www.htc.com/us/support
  2. Choose your Phone from list
  3. Download the upgrade
  4. Install it using USB cable connection with your computer (Windows mobile sync must be installed so your computer can regonize it.)
  5. How do I install Microsoft ActiveSync/Windows Mobile Device Center (WMDC)?

    Insert the "Getting Started" CD that came with your device into your PC and follow the prompts.
    Note: The disk will detect what operating system you have and what sync software you have loaded. If you already have ActiveSync installed on your PC, it will not give you an option to install it from the disk (same for WMDC) until it has been removed from your PC.

  6. The phone reboots after install.

  7. And done

My igolf neo won't work with Windows 7 if i try


I fixed this problem by going to Start>Control Panel and uninstalling the Java 64-bit program. It is incompatible with the Neo sync application. The other Java program on there is compatible. It worked immediately without even restarting. (I tried the above Best Solution, but on the newer computers, I get a message saying the Vista driver is only for Vista, not for Windows 7).

Does not recognize my connection for active sync


Dell made an entry into the market of Personal Digital Assistants (PDA) with Axim X5. The Dell Axim comprises of families of X5, X3, X30, X50 and X51. The Dell Axim PDA can be connected to the computer either by using a cradle or a sync cable. The sync cable connects the device to the computer directly. Here are the steps for connecting a Dell Axim to a computer using a sync cable.
  1. p 1 The Microsoft ActiveSync software must be installed in order to connect the PDA to the computer. This software is found in the Dell Axim Pocket PCmag-glass_10x10.gif Companion CD.
  2. Step 2 The Axim X51 PDA has a 36-pin connector, while the X3 has a 22-pin docking connector.
  3. Step 3 Connect the USB connector found at the end of the sync cable to the computer.
  4. Step 4 Check the PDA. If the PDA is not properly cabled to the computer, you will get the following message: “Connect your device to a computer using a sync cable or cradle before running the system update. Ensure that ActiveSync is installed on the computer and that the ActiveSync connection is successful.”
  5. Step 5 Ensure that the Dell logo faces upward.
  6. Step 6 Use the sync cable to set up a partnership, which can be done multiple times when you sign in as a guest.

Solid red light - Don't search to sync after new drivers and firmware update.


20 minutes after posting the same problem.... I figured it out, ahah... So one case is that you turned off your unit before the firmware update was ready (caused internal damage to your unit) so you might have to send it back. However, what I did was I uninstalled the firestudio cd/driver w/e the heck it is that came with it and then installed it again. That way the universal driver deals with the software for the firestudio the way it should. After doing that and restarting it, simply turn on your unit and it should be red for a few seconds (i thought i was still screwed) but then it turnes blue and syncs... so try that... i might just work.

Not being recognized


Same exact thing happened to mine, sent in for repair, cost me $30 to ship it to them plus they $85 to repair it, and it still doesn't work.

Presonus hasn't done anything about it. Put your $ towards something new and MADE IN THE USA.
