What OS are you running? Does your system use USB 1.1 or USB 2.0? Try powering off your w910, wait a few seconds to make sure it completely cycles off, then connect your phone to your PC. It should turn on in USB (ie. 'Mass Storage') mode. If Windows attempts to Autoplay the device, Cancel the dialog. If Windows attempts to install any drivers for the device (or Vista prompts you to scan the device), Cancel the dialog(s). If you go into 'My Computer', is your phone recognized here (as a USB Mass Storage Device)? If not, the app is not going to recognize it either. Try disconnecting any other USB devices or memory card readers.

SOURCE: I can't transfer files to upload pictures to my pc using usb cable

Go to Sony site and download the driver for your phone
http://ma3-origin.extranet.sonyericsson.com/drivers/
Step 1
Remove data cable from usb and put it into a different one
Step 2
Connect your phone to the computer with the cable and turn it on.
You might see "Found New Hardware" wizard. DON'T let Windows search for the driver; point it to the driver you just downloaded, and install the drive on your computer.
After the driver as installed you should be working 100%

Transfer contacts with an inactive smartchip


Since you say that your computer can read your memory card, you could try puting a sim into your phone temporarily and then backing up your contacts onto your memory card...sony ericsson phones do provide you with that option.The procedure is: Phonebook--options--more--advanced--back up to memory card.

My phone will not recognize my micro sd chip. i have already formatted the chip but it stil does not read it. can yo help


If you are using a Micro SD card, you are using the wrong one. Unfortunately, Sony has a vested interest in promoting their own proprietary formats, (anyone remember BetaMax?), and the TM506 is no exception. This phone uses a Sony Memory Stick Micro (M2). You may obtain these in most camera, computer and electronic stores that sell Sony products. SanDisk also makes the M2 cards. Not sure if other memory card makers do as well.
