Sony Ericsson w580i file transfer

I am trying to transfer files (pictures) but it is just not working.
I plug in the USB cable and click file transfer then a message comes on telling me that the files are getting ready to transfer but the only thing that comes up is that message telling me not to disconnect improperly, etc.

    I've downloaded the Media Manager and it looks like I installed everything, but nothng's popping up when I connect the phone to the computer via USB. When I try to go to My Computer and click on the Removable Disk drive, it just says, "Please insert a disk into drive G:." As for the phone, all it ever says when I connect is, "Do not remove the USB cable until you have exited the application on your PC." Help?

Transfer pictures from phone to computer. I have the correct USB cable

I found an easy step by step to do this.
  1. Connect the USB cable to the computer and the phone.
  2. In the phone: When you attach the USB cable to the phone, a USB connection window appears, Select File transfer.
  3. On the computer: Open My Computer and your phone will be visible as a removable disk.
  4. Double-click the removable disk.
  5. Here you will find specific folders (depending on your phone model) where your pictures are stored.
  6. Drag and drop or copy and paste the picture from this folder to a folder on your computer.
  7. Disconnect the phone from the USB cable.
The picture is now transferred to your computer.

Hope this helps

You don't need the software to transfer music. I have the software but don't bother using it as it takes much longer to transfer files this way.

Just connect my your 350i to your computer using the USB cable. On your phone select "file transfer". Now, go to "My computer" and after 30 seconds your phone should appear as a removable drive, and you can drag & drop (or copy and paste files) into the music folder therein.

While in "file transfer" mode you cannot make or receive calls or texts, so be sure to disconnect as soon as your file transfer is complete. To do so, in my computer, right click the icon for your phone and select "eject".
