sony W550i installation disc

  McGill01 19:26 15 Jan 2006

Hi guys, i jjust bought my girlfriend the new sony ericsson W5501 mobile phone, it is also a mp3 player but im having a problem when i try and install the the program off the disc that the phone provides so that i am able to transfer music from my pc onto the phone, when i try and install it the computer comes up with a warning, this says that it cannot install as i am either running the computer in safe mode or windows is not installed correctly. this makes no sense to me as i have a sony walkman and i have this software on my pc which allows me to transfer music.

any ideas?

thanks for taking the time to help if you do

hello Ryan

My friend has the same phone and problem. My personal opinion is that mobile phone co make pc files ---> mobile phone intentionally difficult to download personal music. Cause we won't spend money on there websites etc... <grumble grumble>

Pick yourself a dongle from matalan or a phone shop, approx £15-20 thats how my friend worked around it.
