Re: USB Drivers

The Moto site does NOT have downloadable drivers for the W755.

Supposedly the latest Motorola Phone Tools includes a driver that will work with the W755 but the current version is deliberately crippled to keep it from doing anything that Verzion didn't want users to do (basically ALL multimedia functions are disabled when you connect MPT to a Verizon phone)

I have seen several posts suggesting that the Motorola Software Update program has drivers that can be used with the W755. I have tried the version of MSU that Motorola has specifically for the Verizon W755 and it still won't even recognize the phone.

So far the only driver I have found that actually does work with the W755, surprisingly enough comes from Verizon as part of the VCast with Rapsody which is a free download from the Verizon website. I have not had time to see if this driver will let any other programs recognize the phone, but it does let you move music from your hard drive (or CDs) to the phone AND it does let the phone charge from the computer USB cable without the stupid "Unauthorized Charger" lockout.
