Re: Can't connect to WMDC using Windows 7

And besides. Just because it's beta, doesn't mean it doesn't work. I find Windows 7 to be quite stable. Some things of course don't work on it, but that much is expected with it being a Beta and a New OS.

On topic... I have no issues with Win 7 and WMDC aside from having to turn off the Advanced Features options on the phone in the activesync options. I would try another USB port, check to make sure it's set to use ActiveSync on the USB to PC settings, and not Disk Drive or Internet Sharing.

Also, toss us some more information here: I.E. What ROM you use, what kind of Motherboard you have, I assume you're on the 7000 build of Win 7? Perhaps your motherboard drivers need updating, I know that mine had some issues installing cetain drivers on Win7, including the chipset drivers. It claimed to have installed them but they didn't, I had to update the device drivers manually.

If all else fails, you might just do a PIM or SPB backup and do a hard reset on the phone, and see if that helps at all.

Phone: Sprint HTC EVO 3D
ROM: Synergy Nightly with Own Mods
