    Why won't my USB hardware be detected?

    I have a windows 7 Toshiba and I'm trying to transmit photos from my T-mobile Dash cellphone to my bran new laptop with a USB cord. I tried once and It said the hardware did not successfully load to my laptop. Now I tried it again and again and again.... and it won't say anything, you will only here a sound indicating that you have connected something to the USB drive. PLEASE HELP

    Have you installed any required drivers?

    Looks like its a Windows mobile device so it will require Windows Device Center (the new Activesync) to be installed. It should do this automaticly if you are connected to the net and have admin credentials for the laptop.

    The other thing to try is restarting the phone as Windows Mobile can actually customize how it shows up to the devices it is connected to. Because of this sometimes it can get a bit confused if some slightly dodgy interface software has been installed or bundled on the phone. Restarting the phone almost always solves this and should allow it to show up correctly to Windows. At that point Windows 7 should just grab the required driver and app from the net.
