    I think I've properly followed all of the steps provided in both the webosdev pages and precentral.net pages...
    1) put phone in dev mode
    2) allow phone to reset
    3) plug into computer and select "Just Charge"

    At this point, Vista gives me...


    And then I get...

    ...which seems promising

    But then I get...


    So then I...


    And the saga finally ends with...




    Any suggestions? Without Vista seeing my phone as a Palm Novacom device, I cannot use the palm-install command or Run As Device from Eclipse (which I'm guessing just uses the palm-install command anyway).

    Any thoughts? Links? I was diligent about searching the forums so that I could avoid taking all these screenshots anyway.

    Thanks.

    That's strange. I'm using Vista and I can get to it just fine. I don't get that prompt for new hardware.


    Maybe try this? From http://forums.precentral.net/homebre...-required.html

    4. In wizard that comes up asking for driver software, I chose ignore.
    5. Then I went into the device manager, by right clicking on "My Computer" and selecting "Manage", then clicking on "Device Manager"
    6. There was a device called "USB Ethernet Gadget". I right clicked on it and selected "Update Driver Software..."
    7. In the wizard that came up, I clicked "Browse my computer for driver software"
    8. In the next page, I clicked "Let me pick from a list of deice drivers on my computer"
    9. It asked me to pick a type of hardware. I chose "Network Adapter"
    10. Under "Manufacturer", I chose "Microsoft Corporation". (Note: this is not the same as "Microsoft")
    11. In "Network Adapter", I chose "Remote NDIS based Internet Sharing Device.
    12. Then I clicked Next.

    OP, are you attempting to install My Tether or just to connect your Palm Pre to your computer?

    Just connect the Pre to the computer. I can see it when I connect through USB and Media, but "just charge" does nothing. It cant locate the novacom linux driver.

    Do you see anything else in device manager that might be your Pre?

    Try searching for those drivers that I put a screenshot of whenever it prompts you for new hardware found.

    Novacom with Windows 7 - WebOS Internals

    Most likely you need to do a manual install of the Novacom drivers.

    Funny, just got home from work and on my XP machine it's doing the same thing while in charge mode.

    same thing happening to me, still no solution? pissing me off, everyone has homebrew apps and i dont, i am in a jealous frustrated rage right now

    Think I may have found the solution to your problem. I came across this on the wiki while setting up my XP machine to access root on the Pre

    Connect the Pre to your PC using a USB cable. Choose the option to "Just Charge". Windows should see a new device called Palm Novacom and automatically install the drivers for it. If you are asked to locate the drivers yourself, they are in C:\Program Files\Palm, Inc\novacom\x86 (for 32-bit Windows) or C:\Program Files\Palm, Inc\novacom\amd64 (for 64-bit Windows).

    Thanks guys! I got it to work, it finally recognized the device and in sucessfully installed a couple apps to test. I will note: I didnt have to copy the .reg files to the registry, actually I couldnt find those. Also, I think the files that I had before somehow got corrupt?

    Anyways, Thanks!

    This is where I'm stuck. Windows has already decided that it wants to recognize my Pre as a Mass Storage Device (yes, even in Just Charge mode). But then when I select the drive that shows up in Explorer, I get "cannot connect to device". I need to figure out how to make Vista forget that I ever plugged it in so that it won't try to be "convenient" by "knowing" what my device is. I can go into properties and see the device id that Vista assigned to it(sorta like an ip address), but I can't really do anything from there.

    The novacom service is installed and working just fine...

    Just don't try to open the drive unless it is in Storage Mode, if the Novacom Linux Driver is installed under Device Manager then you should be set. You can find a program called USBDeview that will let you uninstall and delete the USB information stored in your computer so that the next time you plug in one of the devices it finds it for the first time.

    Regardless of that Im willing to be that you will still see it under File Explorer but just not be able to open it.

    That sounds like exactly the type of program I need. Just something to tell Vista to forget that I ever plugged in my phone and let me start all over from the beginning. I will try this tonight when I get home and post the results.

    Link for anyone else who may be having this problem and could try it before I get a chance.
