I can install and run HTC Sync on my laptop okay. I can even sync my Desire no problem. Trouble is, while I have HTC Sync on my laptop, Windows Explorer will not work. It shuts down and then tries unsuccessfully to restart. Doing a system restore to remove HTC Sync cures the problem. Anyone else having these problems? Any ideas how to fix it. I am running Windows 7 (32 bit).
I have a Desire and I'm trying to transfer MP3s and video across in Windows Explorer. However I can only seem to get around 100MB of files across then I get the error message:
Cannot read from the source file or disk
I'm using a 16Gb card that worked fine in my G1. Windows reports that there is over 14Gb free. I've tried formatting the card via the phone and using other software to transfer the files eg Doubletwist but I still get the same problems.
I just got my HTC Desire today but I cant install the HTC sync program from SD card since its meant to be for 32 bit operating system whereas I am using xp64.Does anyone know if there is installer for sync which can be used on XP 64?
Is any one else used Droid explorer? I used it earlier to remove stock apps and to change my gallery, back when I used the leaked version of 2.1 with v5 from sdx. Now I have DE03 Vanilla Rom though and when ever I try to open up droid explorer it just crashes on start up. Oh yea and I have windows 7. Is anyone else who uses droid explorer have this problem.
Nexus 7 2013 and Samsung Galaxy S4, both running ES File Explorer 188.8.131.52 Windows 7 x64 Pro (Hosting the files) ASUS RT-AC66U
The system works just fine after a fresh reboot of my PC. After a few hours, I get the "Login Fails" error (plain text or SMB). The only way to fix it is to reboot my PC. I believe its a Windows 7 setting that causing this. I searched all over the net for a fix and none of them worked. I tried:
Enabling Guest Account Changed Advanced Sharing Settings Set "Everyone" as read in the File Share Window Enabled Inbound/Outbound rules in the Advanced Windows Firewall Enabled sending unencrypted passwords to SMB via Local Security Policy
I can go into more detail of the fixes I tried if needed. What is an alternative to sharing files from a Windows 7 machine to Android devices? I feel like Ill never get ES File Explorer to work.
I'm using the MixZing app for my music. It's otherwise not bad, but I find I have to manually (and individually!) enter songs to a Playlist from my G1. I'd rather do it via Windows Explorer with a right-click function, but I don't believe there is one. Is there any way I can add songs on my G1 to a playlist using Windows Explorer?
Nexus 7 2012 when connected to Win 7 pc is not recognized in explorer so can't transfer files between the two except when N7 is in camera mode.
I've read countless posts saying to update usb drivers. I have the latest installed now from Google. I had so much trouble getting adb & fastboot to work that I'm leery about messing with my usb drivers.
i have search the web/forum for a windows app that running on the PC you can see at least the apk icon, I have several apks on my PC but when I'm looking for an apk, is hard to remember the name or when trying a new apk is not enough just looking for the name, I may be more visual guy that if I see a nice icon I will try it jajajja.I just found this thread but look die..URL...
is there some application or dev that can easily do an apk viewer, just looking inside the APK folder on the /res/drawable/ the apk icon shows, but how to make it shows at the apk compressed file.
Has anyone managed to get their HTC Magic to sync with Windows XP?I've tried installing the HTC sync software but it does not even acknowledge my phone when i connect it. Has anyone managed to get this to work?
Today I installed HTC Sync 2.0.8 on my computer (in order to communicate with my HTC Hero device), and installation did not give any errors or exceptions. The OS of the computer is Windows XP SP3.I have Windows Address Book on it (Outlook express). When I try to start the application (i.e. HTC Sync), I only get an empty warning. By empty warning a mean a little OK dialog with a warning sign but no text at all! So, the program does not start. When I press the dialog, nothing happens (the dialog just disappears). BTW, I am using Avira AntiVir (Personal). Might this be the problem?Could anyone please help me solve this mystery? Many thanks in advance and happy new year 2010!
I got a very annoying problem.I'm gonna install 'Sense' on my HTC Magic. The problem is that, my computer cant find the phone.Its connected, the phone.I'm using a HP Mini, Windows 7 x 32.I've downloaded HTC Sync, latest version but still cant find the phone.I'd just wanna find the phone so I can copy my contacts, pictures, movies etc to the computer.Please help me!
Up until now I wasn't having any luck syncing my Incredible with Windows Media Player 12. I ended up renaming my folder structure and it made WMP12 see the Incredible's media. By default, the Incredible makes a folder on the internal 8GB drive called MP3. Originally I put all my music in this folder. But when it was in there, WMP12 could not see it. I ended up creating the following folder structure, and it now syncs correctly. I think the main thing is to have a folder named 'music', not 'MP3'.Now my next step is to try and figure out how to sync my home computers music from any Windows 7 / WMP12 computer. I would like to plug my Incredible into my Windows 7 computer at work, and sync my home computers media data. I read that you can stream music from your home computer this way (WMP12 feature), so I am assuming there may be a way to sync it too. I'll let you know what I find. Let me know if you find out first.
I can sync my phone with my computer, but i dont know exactly what it is doing. when i open windows contacts, there are only like 15-20. there is probably over 200 in my phone. how do i get them to sync and put all my contacts on my windows contacts?
I am using an HTC Magic (Firmware version 1.5) and I am having problems syncing the contacts with Microsoft Outlook (on Windows XP). After I initiated a sync, the phone will reboot itself (after a couple of minutes, during the stage "Preparing data from your phone") and return the error "2 General" "No connection to the phone". I have done "Factory data reset" a few times. Every time I have done the factory reset, it will work for a while and then the problem will come back again.

Anyone know of a "process explorer" app for android that would show what processes are maxing out the processor.I'm seeing intermittent sluggishnes while scrolling or opening new apps tbut haven't been able to work out which app is causing it.
Is there someone that could answer a few question about estrongs file explorer.
1) When an app is restored/backed up using estrongs does it also restore/backup all of the user settings for the said app? 2) After a factory reset or firmware update can you restore all apps and settings that have been backed up? 3) Can you select more than one app at a time to backup/restore. 4) Do the backed up apps that where originaly installed from the market still show up in the market as installed after a restore? 5) Can estrongs backup/restore app and phone settings such as gmail & email accounts, cantacts, calendars, phone settings, etc?
If I leave my Desire connected to my laptop (supplied cable, HTC Sync installed and working) with 'sync' enabled all works well for some time, but then after a while my laptop (Sony Vaio Z with Win7) freezes. Unplugging the cable does not help, all I can do is force close the computer with the power switch.
HTC desire V. Whenever I try to open whatsapp from notification drop down the chat window of watsapp appears and the aplication closes. I have been facing this problem last four months.
I have also tried communicating with whatsapp support team but only solution offered to me was update to latest version. I have followed the instructions and upadated to latest version but the problem still exists
I have also consulted htc care center for the problem but no solution offered and the only solution was flash the handset. Currently I have uninstalled whatsapp for last two days n theres no problem with my mobile.
I'm trying to understand remote services at the moment and everything works fine, i can start the service and know how to communicate with it through the AIDL-interface. My problem is that the service seems to still run in the same process like the activity it was started from, because the activity crashes too, if there is an error thrown in the Service.
I set the service process to remote ( android:process=":remote" ) so what am i doing wrong? Or what do i have to do to unbind the service-process completely from the activity-process?
Before I upgraded to Froyo my HTC Desire camcorder function worked fine.After the update it crashes after a few seconds of recording video. I have tried all the resolutions for record but they all crash the phone.I did read that sometimes formatting the SD card helps, but I have don't that and used a different SD card and the problem is still there.Any help greatly received.
I'm new to the Android OS having been a Symbian (2nd phone is a Nokia N97) and Windows Mobile user previously. My question regards a copy of Family Guy (Something, Something, Something, Dark Side) which I purchased yesterday. The standard DVD also comes with a digital copy on the DVD which, when inserted into the drive brings up a choice of transferring the file to my computer to be copied over to my Desire as either a iTunes file or a Windows Media Video (WMV).Ideally I want to avoid the iTunes route as currently I have no use for that program on my system so I would like to be able to use the WMV version. When I copied the file to my Desire, it didn't play and the phone didn't seem to recognise it. Can anyone please give me advice on how to play a WMV on my Desire?
I know a few posts on this but since installing froyo 2.2. I cant get on the sky sports website at all just freezes on the google search and then I try and get on the bbc sport page which works fine but when I go on the live cricket text it crashes and quits the internet. I never had a problem with either before 2.2! I have tried on the default browser and also dolphin but neither work. Are there any settings I should change since installing 2.2 or is it just a case of 2.2 update screwing things up? My friend in the office at work is on orange with 2.2 and it works fine for him.
I am having a problem with the default browser on my HTC Desire where it will stop loading web pages (or not load them at all) even when I have a H connection or 3G connection. All other programs seem to be able to connect via h/3G fine i.e. Market, Opera Mini, GMail etc...
I tried this morning on the following sites:
Twitter Latest news, comment and reviews from the Guardian | guardian.co.uk Wikipedia
And none would open. The little green bar gets stuck about 3mm in. I have a H showing in the status bar. When I first loaded the browsed and went to HTC - Mobile Phones, Smartphones, Cell Phones, PDAs this worked fine. However, this has also stopped loading as I type. EDIT: ww.htc.com now working (3 minutes later), Google is working, but still none of the above mentioned sites..
I am in Manchester UK and am on 3. I have been on 3 for quite a few years and have never had a problem with connecting in Manchester. I don't think it is a carrier problem as I am able to connect to the internet with other programs as already mentioned. Also, all the above mentioned sites open fine when I use WiFi.
It was mentioned on the other thread that someone has informed 3UK of the problem and they have informed HTC, but if any other people are having the same problem please detail it here and inform your carrier and HTC.
