You need to put a memory card in before you can connect your SideKick 3 to the computer. It is very hard to find the "mini" SD memory card that you need for the SK3, so I went and bought the adapter for the "micro."
Please note that the SK3 is only compatible with memory cards of 2GB and less.
So once you put in that mini card, you can connect it to your computer.

My WD external hard drive does not stay recognized on my computer. When I first plug it in it makes the ding/beep noise and shows up on "my computer" but after a few seconds it makes the ding/beep noise...


Try the hard drive on another computer to see if it is the external or a laptop interface problem. There are EIDE/SATA to usb adapters that you can connect a hard drive to that the computer will then read as an external hard drive. The problem with external HDDs is the usb interface built into them, these are mounted on controller cards and that is ususally where the failure occurs.

Lg cf360 makes dinging noise while on charger


I've had my CF360 for about 2 weeks and I may have run across the same problem you are having. It never happens with the wall charger that came with the phone, but it does occur when I connect using a USB cable from certain computers.

Oddly enough the phone only dings when it is plugged into newer P4, and even one old P3 computer. It does not usually make any dinging noises when I plug it into an older Celeron machine. It does not seem to make a difference if the port is USB1 or USB2, I've tried both.

My first thought was that the newer computers were putting out too much power, but I have sort of come to the conclusion that it may be when they are not putting out enough power. I notice when plugged into the Celeron that the phone will start dinging for a brief period of time if something else starts to draw power, such as the hard drive or the CD drive. Using Windows control panel I have determined that the phone requests 20mA when it plugged in, on all the computers I've tried it on. The micro printing on the supplied wall charger says it outputs 700mA so I have convinced myself that I'm not damaging the phone when it is plugged into the P4 machine, although I'm also probably not getting much of a charge either (I mainly use the USB for data connection, not charging). Even at that I don't leave it on the P4 machine any longer than I need to. The owners manual does have a paragraph or two about low power computers and USB hubs, but never says the phone will ding all the time.

Don't know if I helped, but that is what I've found.

I can tell you that if you have pictures on them they have to be put into a specific folder to view on the phone. The easiest thing to do is format the card on your computer. After I did that the sidekick had no problems reading mine. If you ever add photos to the card from an outside source such as usb cable make sure you put the pictures in the exact same folder the sidekick camera puts them in.

hi there,
well it happens some time, if you want to format the memory card, the best way is to
take your memory card out of the phone
put it in all-in-one card reader
and format through computer
be sure you selete "FAT" option not "FAT 32" when format via computer.
put the card back.

hope it will do for you

Phone will not turn on


Sounds like your charger port is busted. Ti is a common problem on sidekick 3 and can effect sidekick IDs as well. A fairly cheap workaround is to get an external battery charger. It will have a slot to charge the sidekick battery external formthe phone. They sell on ebay fior about 25 dollars.

The sidekick ID and sidkeick 3 batteries are the same so it will work. Check then out here

My sidekick wont work


It seems your charger port is broken, it hapfens often on cellphones, wear and tear. Check to see if its under warranty, and it can be replaced. Check my profile if you need more help.
