Do you have sonyericcson pc software installed? please check in my computer/device manager whether there is any sign or corrupted drivers. if it is than remove first corrupted drivers and unplug and plug the phone again, keep device manager open and see is there any moment when you disconnect and connect the phone. if there is any moment in device manager than it is detecting the phone and problem with the drivers.

My moblie piece samsung 3310i it s not able to connect pc


Do you have drivers and software installed on you computer (either will come on a CD with your phone or can be downloaded from the website your phone came from) that supports your phone. Are you using a data cord and not just a charging cord?Just because your phone can be connected to a computer doesn't mean you can actually 'interact' with it. The phone I just got a couple months ago can be connected to a computer but the ONLY thing you can do is take off phones, cannot even put photos back on it. No interaction what-so-ever other than that. No software exists to support anything else on the phone (I actually had to use a driver for another phone to get it to even show up because the driver specified for the phone did not work at all).If this is a pay as you go phone, it may be blocked because - as in my case - they want you to buy air time to transfer everything from photos to ringtones.
So, step 1 - are the drivers and software installed to support your phone on your computer?Step 2 - if all software is installed, are you sure you have a data cord? (or if you are using bluetooth - is the phone showing up in your computer?)

I install the software but I am unable to download photos and videos...I follow instructions but I can't and I don't know why. I connect the camera after I've installed the software and...


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

My computer does not detect the usb mobile for the phone. it tell me there are no driver


Hello,
There can be many reasons for not detecting USB mobile to the computer. It can be off driver problem.Even if you have installed driver you need to look whether its capable of windows you are having. If the particular driver doesn't support your windows it shows no driver or not installed properly. So while selecting driver you should install according to the windows you are using.
Secondly you need to look whether your USB port is working or not. In other cases some phones have their own softwares to connect to PC or Laptop. So in that you need to have that mobile software installed in you Computer EX: NOKIA PC SUITE for Nokia Phones.
Make sure you look all these things carefully .
Thanks.

HI there,
I've personally gone through this circle...ugh.
First - Reboot your computer, and your cellphone. Turn them both completely off, and back on.
If that doesn't solve it,
Second - UNinstall everything to do with your phone. Drivers/Software/Etc. Once that's done, Reboot your computer. Now reinstall the drivers/software/etc, and when that's finished, plug your phone in, let windows find and install what it needs to.
If THAT doesn't work,
Sometimes windows installs your phone as a modem, and then as a usb disk. It may be possible that you machine recognizes the modem first and runs a process to coincide with that. FInd that process and kill it, and you should be good to go!

How to download photo from phone to computer hard drive?


You need to get a Cable & Software from manufacturers web site or DVD that came with phone. Install software & driver, THEN connect the phone via the USB cable. Run the manufacturers software and from there you can do what you want. Also & even without the phone software, as long as the Driver is installed, when plugged in, the PC "Sees" it as a Drive, as such you can Cut, Copy, Paste between locations.

Does your phone require software to be installed on your computer first?

My LG requires software from LG before it would recognize or manipulate the phone. Perhaps your phone is similar.
