    Can't get i760 to connect to PC

    OK, so here is the situation, I had vista and my i760 was working fine with it. So, I downgraded to XP, and now when I try to connect to my pc it won't be detected in Active Sync and won't install the drivers. In device manager it says Samsung i760 RNDIS with an exclamation mark, and if I uncheck the network functionality in USB to PC it says Samsung i760 USB Serial with an exclamation mark. I cannot get it to connect and I don't know what to do! Please help a guy out!

    Are you using a personal firewall? Have you opened the correct ports in it to permit AS to connect?

    That's the most frequent issue.

    In case you haven't already done this, I would try: (a) remove i760 from your PC, (b) remove (uninstall) ActiveSync, (c) reboot, (d) re-install ActiveSync (be sure it's version 4.5), (e) reboot, and (f) try connecting the i760. Also, be try connecting the i760 directly to your PC, not through a USB hub.
