    Pics, flix, and mp3's can all be transfered by putting the micro SD card in a reader or USB cable to phone and menu-9-2-9 to enable USB Mass Storage mode.

    Ok boys and girls I got my replacement data cable from iTrimming today for my Env2. I am pleased to report it works finally. The phone was recognized by the computer and it shows as charging. The cable saga has come to an end.

    For anyone interested the sku# on this cable at iTrimming was 6238A. All I can say is the one I got worked and it has a big white sticker on the cable portion that says made in China with some other numbers 07230-0817662. I have no idea if those numbers actually mean anything. So good luck peeps we finally have a winner in the Chinese cable lottery!...

    Exactly. If BitPim does not work, why the need for a data cable?
    Hy-Tek... other than charging the phone, what else is the cable for? You returned your original cable to them first?
    Thanks

    You can still use the cable to add files thru the USB bulk storage and music thru the Verizon Music Manager software. Not it's not just a charger dude. You don't need BitPim and a GUI for everything just for tweaking but it is a lot easier with it. There are manual ways around BitPim just depends on what you are trying to do.

    Nope they did not ask me to return the original cable. There would be no point anyway it didn't work and nobody was going to rewire a $5 cable and resell it.

    *update* I transferred some mp3s to the data card via USB Mass Storage function and the phone recognized and was able to play them so data transfer works with this cable confirmed.

    I too have a replacement cable coming from Eforcity they didn't ask me to send the old one back they are just sending out a replacement cable. I have tracking number and I should have it tomorrow. I hope I have the correct cable this go around.

    because BitPim WILL work I'd rather not re-enter all of my contacts and send myself 100 text messages with all my ringtones on them and "save as ringtone"
    **** it go big or go home

    The SD reader built into my desktop was unable to read SDHC cards so it was either buy another reader or USB cable for the phone so I can charge it, do DUN, or whatever else if/when bitpim works.

    Bought my first cable from itrimming and it does not work. Just kept getting "power surge" and "unknown device" errors on usb port. Then bought a cable from dwoodsz on ebay and it works fine ($10). itrimming is sending a replacement, will report if it works or not when I get it.

    env2 Driver

    Here is a link to the driver that works with any cable that ask you to install the drivers.

    Click Here
    The only time success comes before work is in the dictionary.
    You have to work to be successful.

    its not the drivers people are having problems with its the ****** *** china cables that we are getting sold that get HOT and do not charge the phone, and Windows does not recognize the phone.

    but im sure some people who dont already have the drivers will appreciate the link.

    Thanks for the tip, I bought one today and it would appear to work. The phone is charging and windows prompts for a driver. Now I'm trying to find a driver.

    Cheers,
    Aaron

    Edit: I just noticed the post from gyvergear about drivers. I'll have to check that out later.

    Arrow

    flowmaster and f38urry,

    Thanks for the info on V Cast Music Manager. I had been trying to find an install of VzAccess Manager for the vx9100 with no success, assuming that would have the correct drivers. I installed VCMM last night, though I clicked cancel on the Music Manager install portion. The certified-drivers are installed. Now to get bitpim working, though that is a topic for a different thread.

    To summarize, LG VX9100 enV2 can be connected to a Windows XP system via USB for data transfer and battery charging with the following components:
    1. USB A to mini-B cable (You can find these anywhere, I used a Blackberry cable)
    2. USB mini-B(f) to micro-B adapter (Tougher to find, I used a Razr 2 Charging Adapter from T-Mobile for $4.99 plus tax)
    3. Drivers (Packaged with V-Cast Music Manager from VerizonWireless.com)

    I tested this on a system with USB 1.1 and another system with USB 2.0. Both were Windows XP SP2. Drivers were not required for charging. The USB host port must supply power for charging, this likely excludes bus-powered hub's and may exclude some laptops and other computers.

    Cheers,
    Aaron
