The problem is a driver issue. It is strictly a LG/Verizon problem, and not Windows. What you should is hook up your phone your computer LG USB cable and using the Music Essentials CD-ROM.

Install the latest version of BitPim where  you can find at http://www.bitpim.org/ . 
"I hooked up my phone to my computer via the USB cable, and opened BitPim. Much to my dismay, bitpim did not find the COM for the LG Modem".

However, Vista popped up the window in the taskbar telling me that new hardware was detected but could not be installed. I went to Start > Search > Device Manager
Once the Device Manager is opened up, you should see an unknown hardware profile for the USB cable/phone. In my case, Vista seemed to recognize the fact that it was a LG USB Modem, but didn't have the driver. Anyway, right click on the unknown driver and select "update driver software." Surprisingly, Vista will tell you it found a driver. Unfortunately, when when you go to install the driver 2 new unknown drivers will appear.

To fix the 2 unknown drivers, all you have to do is insert the VCAST Music Essentials disk into your disk drive, and point Windows in the direction of the files for the drivers on the VCast Music Essentials CD (in my case, the D: drive).

Windows finished the install, and from their BitPim recognized the cable on COM5.
That should work.

I had no problem installing cable and drivers under Vista. HOWEVER, I have total problems trying to use it.

I have to run BitPim in Administrator mode to see the port and even then it doesn't auto-detect the Verizon LG vx8350 phone. After manually setting Phone and Port, BitPim then sees a phone on the port but nothing else. No data, no info, no trasnfers. Logs says "can't transition from none to brew".

Navman n40i smart st compatability problem with vista.


Hi,

Are you not able to run the activesync program despite the Vista warning? Did you try running it in compatibility mode? What happnes when you try to connect with sync center (what happens...any error messages)? Regarding the mobile device centre...did you check that McAffe and windows firewall is not blocking it from internet access?

LG KP220 PC SUITE?


Finally, after spending 2 days on this issue, I am now able to back up my phone book on LG KP220 to my PC!  Hurray!
I have now used the pc sync software on Windows Vista as well as Windows XP (SP3) without any issues.
For Windows XP (SP3): ----------------------------------
After installing the driver, all you need to do is make sure that USBSER.SYS file has the following specs:
Size: 22,768 bytes     Version: 5.0.2195.4858
The newer one (which has the following specs) does not work and needs to be replaced with the older one with above specs.
Size: 26,221 bytes      Version: 5.1.2600.5512
(yes, for some reason, the older version works and newer does not)
For windows vista: -------------------------- When you first connect the phone in COM mode, let vista download the driver from the internet.  Then run PC Sync and viola it'll work!
For both: ------------ For running as a USB flash drive (data mode), you don't need any driver in either o/s. For running as a COM port (phone mode), you need a driver and a software.  The driver I'm using is USBSER.SYS and the software is called "Phone Suite" by MediaTek.  I've also tried a slightly older version of the same software called "PC Sync Manager" and that also works.  Other software should also work, as long as the driver is working correctly!
If you still need any help, drop me a mail at amoizpatgmaildotcom (you know what to do with "at" and "dot")

Programs won't upload to my ipaq 111 classic ppc


I did not know that I needed to do a soft reboot on the PCC. Once that happened, everything loaded at once. I don't know where it came from, but it all loaded.

1300 contact is a lot. If I were you. I will not import all hahaha.

You can try exporting the contact information into Vcards. then store it in your memory card. but ooops. then you need to open each card on your phone 1 by 1.. not good.

Driver for lg ku250 phone


its very easy to solve this problem, since vista have new driver management unlike old xp's which need external drivers for all new hardware installed on it, a vista does not.

-- just plug the phone in a data service mode. (on usb connection manager)
-- when vista ask for driver just let the vista search for it.
-- and choose LG xxx modems if asked.

Voila i connected to internet.

for pcsuite like managing sms i dont have solution.
i didnt find problems when accesing my microSD. my laptop recognize it as external drive.
