Go to Sony site and download the driver for your phone
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%

The Sony Ericsson w580i is one of Sony Ericsson's lines of Walkman-branded handsets. These music focused phones are popular globally, but few of them have made it to the United States. The W580i is one of the few that has, carried by AT&T. And it's a good pick for the carrier.
The sound quality through the included stereo earbud headphones is superb and if you turn on the MegaBass boost feature in the Walkman player, the phone outputs full and powerful sound that booms. The W580i also has support for A2DP which allows the phone to play music via Bluetooth to stereo headphones. Like other Walkman phones, the W580i supports music files in the MP3/AAC/AAC+/e-AAC+) formats and you can rip music CDs using the included Disc2Phone software for Windows or using Sony Ericsson DVD Ripper for Mac.

Music player not working

backup the music files and contacts and anything else on the phone and then do a complete reset on the phone and put some music back on and see if that helps ( keep a copy of everything on your computer or else where ) and if that does not work then try and re apply the update making sure to re download the update to ensure its valid and not corrupt and then try and re apply that update to see if that helps at all

There is a program called BIT PIM it may help. It's free. It isn't the easiest program in the world to use, but it is the only one I've ever used with any success for this application.

Transfering music :S

put your usb in your computer/laptop and then close all programs to do with your usb and then open windows media player and then were it says sync press it and it will come up with all the music you have saved on your laptop/computer and then drag it to the section were it says start sync and when you have all the music you want in there press start sync and then you wont be abel to use your phone for a while whilst it is sendingmusic and make sure your battery is fully charged as well the last thing you want is downloading loads of music and your phone going off

Trouble downloading music to my enV

that was the same problem for me. when you download that vcast software dont use there program. use windows media player 9. that has worked best for me. ive tried the latest window media player out and it doesnt seem to work. but if you use 9 you can go to sync with your phone connected. and you always have to make sure that you go to settings and tools on your phone. then go to call settings and then you should see pc connections and when you get to that you should see usb and you click on that and it should say pc connection set. hopefully any of those options i gave you work out.
