    I can use Bluetooth to sharing internet connection with the windows mobile device but i wanna know how to connect with USB cable so that i can turn off bluetooth and my battery won't drain faster.

    Thanks

    I also have an HTC touch, and was wondering if there was any way to access the files on it via USB an my MBP.

    Or do I just need to get a memory card that I can then put in the computer?

    Just use the USB cable for power while tethering via Bluetooth?

    just select disk mode instead of activesync when you plug it in.

    When I plug it in the computer shows no sign of recognizing it. Do I need to install the software it came with (I assumed it wouldn't work on a mac)?

    Does the HTC Touch take microSD cards? I don't know anything about this particular model of phone, but my guess is that you need to make sure that it is in disk mode, as almostinsane noted. I believe, but am not positive, that you will only be able to access files on a flash memory card inserted into the phone. There is no need to install any software.

    No, on the phone it should pop up asking if you want it in activesync or target disk mode.

    Yeah, nothing happens. The phone charges, but otherwise shows no sign of knowing it is plugged in. Even manually opening activesync does nothing.

    bump, has anyone got this to work yet?

    i have a treo pro and when i plug it in, no recognition plus it doesnt even charge. in fact it drains the battery more.
