    hello all,

    i have a sony erricson w595 and when i plug it into my desktop it detects as a camera.
    but when i plug it into my netbook and laptop it detects as portable device.

    detecting as camera does not have the option to open with media player.

    i have tried installing sony erricson pc suite, this didnt help.
    also tried installing sony erricson usb drivers, but they couldnt detect anything.

    i am running windows xp sp3

    any help appreciated.

    furthermore, why would this be happening on one pc and not the other 2 laptops?

    it was quite simple...all i did was right click the device / update drivers and chose usb...it then updated mta drivers
    and the camera was seen as a normal drive.
