Hi, i tried all the solutions on connecting the phone with PC, but it didn't work.

But when i open LGSync application, it said CAN NOT CONNECT TO MOBILE PHONE, CHECK CONNECTION and all the menu is grey. I also want to know how can we install new application such as game? Thanks in advance, Jibenk Have the same problem with KE970 mobile Menu - Settings - Connectivuty - USB Connection - Data Service But stiil LG Mobile Sync cannot connect,,,

    Same here. Can drag and drop.

    I am having problems wih the external memory chip, phone reads it okay, but pc locks up when the usb cable is connected. If the external memory is not inserted into the phone the pc reads the built in chip okay, and also detects that no external memory is in place. Tried connecting the phone on a friends pc, and it all worked fine. Can anyone help?

First, I followed steps suggested in "BEST SOLUTION" (see solution posted on Jun 30, 2008 by fnbryden.

Then, I restart LG Sync and tried to force connection by clicking the small icon "Connect" located in the upper left. LG Sync showed a message asking to restart the connection. I close and restart LG Sync again and force connection one more time...Success!!! Now I can see the phonebook, schedule, memos, messages...

I´m using WinXP with Service Pack 3 and the CD provided by the cell phone company.

Posted on Aug 17, 2008

After reading and trying all the unsuccessful solutions I found one. The CD provided by the phone could be outdated therefore go to LG's site and download the latest driver. Delete the one on your computer and install the new one.

Good Luck.

Sony Vaio running Vista 32 bit & a LG KE850 Prada had the same problem with LG Mobile Sync not recognising that the phone was connected, but now working fine.

Try the following :

After downloading mobile Sync to your computer.

Open phone settings, then connectivity, then USB Connection & select Data Service.

Connect the phone to the computer, the computer then senses NEW HARDWARE and looks for & installs the drivers.

Once completed.

Open Mobile Sync, select connect icon and the compurter links with the phone and everything works fine from then on.

    Had same problem on a Sony Vaio running Vista 32 & the LG KE 850 Prada, with the phone locking up. Located the problem to the 2 MP3 players on the phone ie

    One under My Stuff/sounds/MP3 - phone internal memory

    and the other under MP3 Player. - Micro SD Card

    If you have music in the MP3 Player and Ringtones in the My Stuff/Sounds/MPS Player the phones locks up.

    The remedy is to move the ring tones to Downsloads, no conflicts so the phone does NOT lock up.

    My KE850 Prada now works fine - no problems!

I guess that you have connected the external hard drive via a usb

have you tried plugging it into another usb

if it were not the case that it was working yesterday i would of said make sure the jumpers on the external hard drive are not set to master either take off completely or set to slave

hope this helps

Hi, I have an external disk connected to an usb port. Sometimes my computer stop to recognize the connection and my external disk doesn´t works anymore, until the next reboot. What can I do to resolve...

The only other solution other than rebooting is to remove the cable from the usb port and reinsert it. Sometimes the computer will recognize the drive and it will work properly.

Computer does not recognize simpletech

Assuming Windows, try the Device Manager and see if the (old) disk is listed there in the disk drives section.
If so, right-click it and select Uninstall. (do this while the new driver is disconnected)

That should force Windows to recognize and reinstall the new drive when you plug it again.

For other causes check out the external hard disk problems.

Can not connect using LG Mobile Sync

Try changing 'Settings - Connectivity - USB connection' from 'Mass storage' to 'Data service'. I think that'll work (you'll have to change the setting back again if/when you want to copy files again. :-)

Can not connect using LG Mobile Sync

I have an LG 970 with precisely this stupid problem. In many, many ways, this phone is a complete nuisance. This particular stupidity is a phone setup issue, it cannot be a Mass storage Device and a Data Service at the same time.
Phone, Menu, 9 Settings, 4 Connectivity, 3 USB connection, ...
- select "Mass storage" if you want to access images, sounds etc using Windows Explorer, just like any other USB stick
- select "Data service" if you want to use the LG Mobile Sync application
