I thought this was a problem that I had only with my old phones(sonyericsson w800 + w810) but my laptop doesn't recognise my new phone either (w850) which is really fustrating me, I have a walkman phone with no music on it :/

My laptop runs on vista. Phone works on mum's PC (XP) but it takes about a week to recognise that hardware's plugged in and that I want to transfer files :flowers: (thPC is buggered)

So my laptop is telling me "Device driver software not successfully installed" and tells me that my phone has been unplugged when it's obv still connected (via usb) it says I have to contact the manufacturer... ick! I thought you guys may be able to help me, please? Drving me nuts :thumbsup: (sorry about typos, I still can't get used to laptop keys)

Thanks in advance

You might check to see if there are Vista drivers and software for that phone.


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

Hopefully,

you can get them at the phone support site.
