    Hi all
    Just back on this ng, was here a while ago.

    Right, bought a DCU-11 USB data cable for my T610
    plugged the usb cable in, pc detected it and drivers installed etc....

    so far so good.

    but, I cant seem to get the computer to spot that there is a phone attached
    to the end of the cable.

    have installed software that came with the cable but nada, nowt, zilch :-((

    Two possibilities:
    *The cable is faulty [its brand new]
    *I'm doing something wrong [probable]

    Can any kind soul help out? Have googled but not really found anything
    useful :-((

    Would appreciate any help.

    Regards & seasons greetings

    Have you installed the software from Sony Ericsson that allows syncing
    the phone? If not, it's available on their website at support, or you
    can get some answers at this website;

    Yep, tried every bit of software I could.

    The mobile phone monitor doesnt even detect the phone :-(

    Maybe the cable is duff?

    if it is a serial cable, launch hyperterminal or equivalent comm sw,
    connecting directly to the serial port the cable is plugged into. Then you
    should see the phone as a plain old intelligent modem (type AT and it
    should answer OK).

    If it does, the cable and the phone interface are fine.

    Hadn't thought of that route.
    The cable is a USB one, so I ran the "add modem" wizard and it detected the
    phone
    on the end of the cable! Now I'm confused...........
    I'd become convinced that the cable was duff, hence the reason the phone
    monitor wouldn't detect it.
    But, that little test proves the cable is fine?

    Now I'm stumped....

    yes it proves that it communicates to the phone over the cable.
    You can use the phone as a wireless modem on the go.

    As for "seeing into the phone" the way you explore a windows disk, you will
    need another program that interrogates the phone over the cable (or over BT
    or the IR) and builds a visual tree of what is inside, eg. FMA from
    sourceforge.net.

    I am not avare of phones which can be plugged directly into the PC via usb,
    and get recognized as external memory, the way a flashpen does.

    Thanks for the help, I'm just downloading FMA now.
    Basically all I want to do is send files [ringtones, games, pictures] to the
    phone
    and send pictures from the phone to the pc.

    Will see how FMA goes :-)

    cheers

    The cable driver or software will allow you to map the USB phone cable to
    one COM port, wont'it?
    If so, FMA, tools, options, general, check the serial interface and select
    the COM port the USB cable is mapped to.

    Thanks for the continued advice.
    I'm not sure what I actually did but its working now :-)
    I reinstalled a different [newer? older? cant remember now] version of phone
    monitor, ran fma again and bingo!

    Thanks once again for all the help.

    cheers!
