For a MAC, I believe you need an SMB application. This is not free for mobiles, but I'm not sure on the MAC. SMB is a file sharing protocol that is standard for Windows file share and transfer. Apple has their own protocol that is exclusive Apple. The SMB interface app allows you to share files with a Win computer via local LAN. I do this with WiFi on my Android - PC. Really nice for quickly posting pics to net drive when you get home from outing. The Android mobile app on my LG Lucid that I use is Ghost Commander. It's a bit clunky, but once it's set up it's great for getting files from PC or posting pics-vids etc from smart phone. There are Apple SMB apps for iPhone, to do this, but the Android was free.so my LG won this personal use setup.

SOURCE: MTP Device Searching Preconfigured Driver Folders

I was having this problem as well, but solved it.
I, like others decided to just buy a USB cable for my VX9900 and use Windows Media Player for sync'ing. (I also have the Verizon Essentials program that I downloaded, but I like WMP better. No particular reason).
I was getting the installation messages and as soon as the MTP message came up, I got the "problem" message and it didn't sync.
What I did when I got the cable was to run the CD drivers that came with my cable. That may have been my mistake. I was bothered that the date of my driver was in 2005 since the phone came out late in 2006. So I looked at the name of the driver and it was something like C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\LGUSBDriver.xxx whatever... I went to my device manager and uninstalled the driver. I went to the C:\Program Files\ and deleted the LG USBDrivers folder. I went to the Windows/system32/drivers folder and there were three LG*.* files I deleted them. The next time I plugged the phone in and set it to sync, it worked. It's late and night and I may not have typed this really clearly, so feel free to contact me at bill (at) halfamind.com (because a half a mind is still a terrible thing to waste).

SOURCE: Problems with LG enV VX9900 music uploading

I found the solution.

First let me say that calling Verizon tech support is a frustrating process to say the least. I have spent hours on the phone with three different reps, all with different levels of knowledge on the subject. But I'm beginning to digress - Bottom line, calling Verizon tech support is hit-or-miss.

After multiple attempts of installing and uninstalling the rhapsody software, the vcast software and the phone drivers onto my laptop with and without the phone plugged in, I was still not getting my phone to connect. So after I was just about through with Verizon reps, I called Rhapsody tech support, and they insisted it was a phone issue. Having no where else to turn, I drove to the verizon store to DOWNGRADE the phone to something simpler, when their highly trained personnel actually diagnosed the problem.

Turns out the nothing was wrong with my laptop, or wire, or USB, but rather the only way to get the phone to connect was to bring it to the store and have VERIZON update the software on it. You cannot do this over the airways using 228. They must do it there. Actually, there have been four updates to this phone's software since I bought it only 4 months ago (I had version "4" and they are up to version "8"). After the software update, the phone connected and now I am able to drag and drop to the phone shown in the same pane as "my library."

Save some time - bring it to the store.

Pictures from VX5400 to computer using USB cable.


I have the cable. I use BitPim on my Mac because no other software works. Verizon has NO software and claims that the only way to get photos off is to send them to their website. I have bought 3 different cables and NONE transfers photos.

When i plug the Lg chocolate vx8575 in my computer, the computer cannot find the hardware


Before you connect the phone to the computer, you need to install the LG driver.

Here is a link to a driver that should work. It may not be the newest version though. LG doesn't make it easy to find anymore. http://www.lgmobilephones.com/uploadedFiles/LG_Mobile/PhoneAssets/_Drivers/Verizon/LGUSBModemDriver_Eng_WHQL_Ver_4.9.4_All.exe

If you want the Verizon official software with Rhapsody, go to http://vzam.net/vcastmusic/ and download the VCAST Music Manager.

I have a LG dare cell phone and want to transfer some pictures to my Laptop. Lap top is running windows vista 64 bit. when I connect the usb the pc does not recognize the usb connection. It recognizes all...


Well, for music...
Install the supplied software for your Dare on your computer.
In "My Music" select "Sync".
You can now see your Dare as a USB device but only music is accessible. :{

For photos the easiest way is to use a micro SD card and a card reader.
Store or move photos from your internal memory on your Dare to the micro SD card.
Transfer the micro SD card to your computer with either a built in card reader or a USB card reader.

The next alternative is to use a program like BitPim which can be a little tricky and can delete or copy all of your personal data (images, tones, contacts, etc...) depending on which button you press. The two buttons look very similar. Great way to download free ring tones and upload to your phone for free.

LG env 2black will not play songs that are on 8 gb micro card


Make sure you have the drivers installed. I had this problem last week. Verizon couldnt figure it out then either. Go to the verizonwireless website, and go to downloads. You need to install the verizon access manager. Once you do this, the drivers will be installed on your computer, and your phone will sync. You do not have to open the access manager, but you will have to leave it installed on your computer for the drivers. Once its on there, try to sync again, and it should work. Good luck.

Viewty sync to mac


LG has not yet developed the drivers for mac. And you won't find them on the CD, so don't get crazy to put the minicd con the mac... it won't be useful. Just monitor the lgmobile.com mobile for the drivers to be published. LG has promised them for the first half of 2008. Until then, you can only use USB or Bluetooth to exchange data.

Sync Manager Problme with Vista with LG CU500


The problem is a driver issue. It is strictly a LG/Verizon problem, and not Windows. What you should is hook up your phone your computer LG USB cable and using the Music Essentials CD-ROM.

Install the latest version of BitPim where  you can find at http://www.bitpim.org/ . 
"I hooked up my phone to my computer via the USB cable, and opened BitPim. Much to my dismay, bitpim did not find the COM for the LG Modem".

However, Vista popped up the window in the taskbar telling me that new hardware was detected but could not be installed. I went to Start > Search > Device Manager
Once the Device Manager is opened up, you should see an unknown hardware profile for the USB cable/phone. In my case, Vista seemed to recognize the fact that it was a LG USB Modem, but didn't have the driver. Anyway, right click on the unknown driver and select "update driver software." Surprisingly, Vista will tell you it found a driver. Unfortunately, when when you go to install the driver 2 new unknown drivers will appear.

To fix the 2 unknown drivers, all you have to do is insert the VCAST Music Essentials disk into your disk drive, and point Windows in the direction of the files for the drivers on the VCast Music Essentials CD (in my case, the D: drive).

Windows finished the install, and from their BitPim recognized the cable on COM5.
That should work.
