Anybody else having a problem with PdaNet? I have blue screened twice in ten minutes.

Day after day as I try to remember, I find my forgetter working better and better.

David,

No bsod around here.  What OS are you on?  When did this start?  Any other updates?

Jim's translator here 🙂

BSOD = Blue Screen Of Death

OS = Operating System (XP, Vista, Windows 7, Mac OSX etc)

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit and PdaNet for Android Version 2.45. How do I go about troubleshooting the BSOD? The screen info doesn't stay on long enough for me to read it. As a side note, I discovered that I was using a Garmin cable which I didn't think should matter but I changed to the Motorola cable that came with the phone and haven't had a BSOD since. Before they were happening every ten minutes or so.

I tried a cable from another (non Motorola) phone, and my Droid displayed a warning message.  I think the cable does matter.

This is my first post on the forum so be gentle.  I have a Droid X and have been trying to get PDAnet working on it.  Since I was at Escapade, Mr & Mrs Geek tried to work it out as well.  

I'm running Firefox.  I am using the cable that came with the phone.  I am on Windows 7 64 bit on HP Notebook.  Son got his DX at the same time I did.  He is running PDAnet with no problems, but is on XP Pro 32bit.

If anyone comes up with a solution, I'll be forever grateful.

One more piece of information …

When Jim tried attaching his Droid to your computer and running PDANet – that also resulted in the Blue Screen of Death – so that eliminates your DRoid X as the problem.  Jim's is an original Droid.

Although I do see this mention on June Fabrics help page:

  • My Motorola Droid X phone is not recognized by PdaNet.
    An extra step is needed for this phone to expose the “Android USB Interface”.

    After maksing sure USB Debugging is enabled, with your phone plugged in, try to go to the notifications list on the phone and select “USB Mass Storage”. See if the computer installs the USB driver after that and recognized by PdaNet. If not try to turn off the phone screen (press the power button) also and see if that helps. 

  •  

    I guess you must have gotten past that point though. 

    You might want to peruse the Droid Forums for more info.

    This is coming to you via PDA Net on my Droid X!!!!!!!!!!!!

     

    I'm not sure why it is working when it wasn't before.  I slowly read everything that came up on the screen, followed directions (like we haven't done that before???) and I am connected.

     

    Wish I could tell you what changed, but I am grateful that it is working.

    I got the update last night.  Sure enough, the BSOD came back when I tried to connect with PDANet.  I uninstalled the app from DX and the software from the computer.  I reloaded both and walked through the steps again to reinstall both drivers, etc.  Right back up and connected.

     

    Updated version looks a little different so far but everything seems to work as good as or better than before.
