Question about Sony Ericsson W550i Cellular Phone
My phone has always worked with my computer but, I turned on the computer and plugged it all in to transfer some pictures and my computer gave me an error that read USB Device Unknown. So I unplugged the phone restarted it tried again... Same error. Then I restarted it without unplugging my phone the device was found and the computer said it was working properly but I cant find the folder under My Computer> that stands for the phone? Any suggestions for fixing this nuisance of a problem? -SP
I have same problem, eventually i can solve it by pressing the primary button (clear big middle button) while i plugged in the usb con. The chance to get it is only for few milisecond due to preparing menu will flashing immediately, it will force my phone to prepare to preparing usb connection

What operating system do you have on your computer? Are you using the original USB cable or a replacement? Have you recently updated/changed your USB drivers or phone firmware or formatted your phone? If using windows XP then does the phone appear in "Device Manager"? Waiting for your info :)

Tips for a great answer:
A USB hard drive is a portable external storage device that works just like a conventional hard drive.
The device is simply plugged into a USB port on your computer as you would connect a flash drive.
Unlike a flash drive, however, a USB hard drive can store a much larger amount of data.
If your computer will not recognize your USB hard drive, you can try troubleshooting steps to resolve the problem.
Plug one end of the USB cable into the port on your hard drive and plug the other end into the USB port of your computer. Ensure that both ends of the cable are connected securely.
Open "My Computer" (Windows XP) or "Computer" (Windows Vista/7).
The USB device should be listed as "removable disk" once it is plugged into the computer.
If it is not listed among the available drives on your computer, proceed to the next step.
Ensure that the data cable is working properly.
Try another USB cable if you have one available.
Disconnect all other USB devices from the computer as they may interfere with the operating system detecting the external hard drive.
Reboot the computer if the USB hard drive is still not recognized.
Plug the USB cable into another USB port and check to see if the device is detected.
If you are using a USB hub, remove the device and plug the external hard drive directly into a USB port.
If the computer still fails to recognize the device, the external hard drive itself may be experiencing a hardware problem.
Check the status of the hard drive in the "Device Manager" window. Under Windows XP, right click "My Computer" and select "Device Manager."
For Windows Vista and Windows 7, click the "Windows" button in the lower left corner of the screen, then type "Computer Management" in the search bar and press "Enter."
Select "Device Manager" in the "Computer Management" window. In the Device Manager window, click the "+" sign that appears beside "Disk Drives."
If the external drive is not listed, click "Other Devices" in the Device Manager window and see if an "Unknown Device" appears.
The external hard drive may have been detected but the device is not working properly.
If it is still under warranty, take the device to the computer store where it was purchased to have it repaired or replaced.
Hope this helps
