Question about Cell Phones

1 Answer

When I connect the sony ericsson z500a through a USB cable to the PC, a popup balloon comments that it was an "unknown device". in my despair too, I downloaded the mobile phone tools online, hoping that it'll also solve the problem but when the software undergoes initialization, it cannot detect the phone. I checked if there's something wrong with the cable and with the USB port, but nothing seems wrong with those. I really hope you could help me so at least I can upload some of my files/pics and download some ringtones, wallpaper etc. in a more practical way.

Check if you have installed the proper driver for your handset. If not install the latest driver by visiting Sony ericsson site. Hope it will solve your problem.

How do i transfer stuff from computer to my w760a sony ericsson

you need to first have your phone connected to the computer using the usb cable provided.

once you plug your phone to the computer, a small pop up balloon will show in the right lower part of your screen which will say 'found new hardware' on that balloon and follow the steps to the add new hardware wizard. insert the cd to install the driver and the pc suite for your mobile phone. the pc suite will serve as the go-between for your phone and computer.

if you don't have the cd, you can download the suite from this site, If you want more from your phone, go to this site It requires registration though.

Bluetooth connectivity

If your PC can't findthe drivers for your bluetooth device then it has nothing to do with your phonebut your PC.
If you can’t sync withyour PC when you’re using the USB cable then try installing the Sony Ericsson PC Suite.

On your phone you have to go to settings and under phone settings there should be an option to connect through USB or PC Connection option. This has to be selected before the computer will recognize the device is connected.
