Question about LG Prada KE850 Cellular Phone
Hi, i tried all the solutions on connecting the phone with PC, but it didn't work. My PC can recognize it as external drive - so there is nothing wrong with USB connection and i can do the 'darag and drop' of MP# or picture using Explorer. But when i open LGSync application, it said CAN NOT CONNECT TO MOBILE PHONE, CHECK CONNECTION and all the menu is grey. I also want to know how can we install new application such as game? Thanks in advance, Jibenk
I have the same problem like everyone else in this forum! here is the solution:
1. The USB modem driver came with the CD may or will not work, so get the latest drivers for it.
2. Before install the new drivers, change your phone setting under " setting -> USB connection -> from MASS STORAGE to DATA LINK.
3. Plug the usb cable to the phone and to your PC, it should do anything or give any message if it does just cancel it for now.
4. Install the new USB driver you just download, while install it will said something like " does not work with XP " just click OK don't panic.
5. After it finished installed you will see by the clock that it find the USB LG blah blah...and ding ding sound if you have sound on.
6. Now go back to LG Sync software and click on Connect & choose LG modem com port whatever it there.
7. You're done !!!
Here the link where to get the new USB driver:
Yeah the link is all Italian ...don't panic, I couldn't read it either LOL...just click on the picture where you see the phone and the PC with wrap around with arrow, then follow instruction will be in English.
Keep posting good answer that you find and help out other just like US!

Go to connectivity and change it to Data.
To transfer contacts from Outlook, first import the contacts into the LG Sync software ie Go to File -> Import ->Outlook.
You'll get a prompt asking you to allow the software to access to Outlook address book.
When its done, select all the contacts (in the Sync software) and sync it to the phone (green arrow).

I just got the phone and expierenced similar problems to what others have reported. the solutions that describe switching the usb conncection options on the phone are accurate. I ecountered dilemas trying to use Mobile Sync. I was able to install the software and was able to get the software (tools) to show that the comm port was being recognized but at the bottom of the screen it read something like "no phone connection" or something similar and no options on the screens tabs (file) (view) etc. where clickable. I then clicked on the calendar button and all of a sudden the connect button right next to it was clickable. I was able to transfer all my Outlook contacts with phone numbers to my phone.

Before connecting, configure the USB port of your LG cellphone.
The setting must be: "Data service" instead of "Mass storage"
This is for all versions of LG Mobile Sync and XP/Vista

Hi! I had the same problem with phone LG kf 510. I use Windows Xp. The solution: the first, put the Usb connection on Data service and then connect the phone with PC. The PC doesn't recognize phone on this setting. Then open the program LG mobile syng. Now on Usb connection choose Mass storage and again Data service. The phone starts to try to synchronize with the PC and to make connection with the program. But by this way to connect the phone with PC, the PC can't recognize it as external drive.

LG Sync software runs on XP / ME / 2000 / WIN 98 versions, if your running vista you need to run Sync software as an older version.
In vista go to control panel / programs ...you can click on the "run as older version of software" link, (on left side of window) this will open a compatability wizard, follow on screen guidlines allowing the software to run as if on XP ! this will allow the software to run on vista platforms. If having sync problems refer to your phones usb connectivity. change this to data.

Hello ..Well guys i've been reading and trying most of your advices and the most simple thing to do is on the phone itself..you have to tune to phone settings so that any computers or notebooks or laptops can recognise it..
I have Lg KE850, go on the solution number 17..

Guys, read your installation Booklet.
You must just go in hand in settings - sync option (5) - usb (5) and everything works fine...

In the phone you have 2 options to use USB connection (Shine). One of them is "Modem" - use it in order to work with LG Mobyle Sinc.

I HAVE KF510 MOBILE BUT MY MOBILE NOT CONNECTED TO PC. CHECK YOUR USB PORT WHAT CAN I DO ? ?

Solution 3 works perfect. I would just add that after entering the sync software, click on contact /agenda to get an active CONNECT icon. Solution 3 was:
"To Synchronise the Phone with the PC you must go to "connectivity" and set the USB Connection on the phone to Data Service and use the LG Sync. software."

This is just crappy software, it's not a Windows related problem. I am a Mac user and running LG Mobile Sync under Virtual PC. Like everyone else in here I can connect the phone acting as an USB storage device (like I can on my Mac outside of Virtual PC) but I can't get it to "talk" to LG Mobile Sync.
In Virtual PC, I have to tell the program which USB devices to pass through to the Virtual PC Windows installation and which devices to "leave" on the Mac.
When connecting the phone to my Mac, the Virtual PC USB settings pop-up, notifying me of the new device. The device is visible as "LG: 1 CDC and 1 MS and 1 DPS". When I tell it to pass it on to Windows inside Virtual PC, it's just not picked up by the Sync software.

To Synchronise the Phone with the PC you must go to "connectivity" and set the USB Connection on the phone to Data Service and use the LG Sync. software. To transfer files such as photos videos or music, set to -Mass storage- and use windows explorer to Drag & drop. it's easy.

Leave the phone settings on Mass Storage, but when it connects, there will be an option on the phone to 'Exit'. This disconnects the USB drive, but enables the data connection for synching. Then you can use your LG software to synch.

Sony Vaio running Vista 32 bit & a LG KE850 Prada had the same problem with LG Mobile Sync not recognising that the phone was connected, but now working fine.
Try the following :
After downloading mobile Sync to your computer.
Open phone settings, then connectivity, then USB Connection & select Data Service.
Connect the phone to the computer, the computer then senses NEW HARDWARE and looks for & installs the drivers.
Open Mobile Sync, select connect icon and the compurter links with the phone and everything works fine from then on.

Try changing 'Settings - Connectivity - USB connection' from 'Mass storage' to 'Data service'. I think that'll work (you'll have to change the setting back again if/when you want to copy files again. :-)
