I can't sync my i780 with Win 7 ultimate 32bit or 64bit either. I have 2 desktops, one installed with Win 7 64bit & another with 32bit. Apparently, Samsung don't have drivers for Vista / Win 7 32/64 bit. Would help if anybody here have managed to sync their i780 wth Vista. Please show step by step what needs to be done & where to download the drivers. Unfortunately, both my machines don't support VM feature in Win 7 or else I could try the XP mode to sync.
One more thing, how on earth can the i780 sync via bluetooth but not the cable if the drivers are not there?
For the record, I have successfully synced my wife's Samsung SGH-i780 with her Windows 7 Ultimate (RC) laptop using the USB cable.
One of the issues users face while trying to sync with Windows 7 is that the WMDC is not installed by default.
Without the WMDC installed, the necessary device drivers are not loaded or available in the system's driver cache.
However, in all Windows 7 installation, there's a folder in the system folder called Windows Mobile & that's where the installation package is stored.
You can manually install WMDC from here or download a copy of the WMDC 6.1 update from MS' download website (http://www.microsoft...&displaylang=en
What I did differently was that I downloaded the WMDC 6.1 update & installed it onto the Windows 7 laptop.
After that, I plugged in the SGH-i780 & the driver installation wizard starts automatically (tray icon) & WMDC starts up after the necessary drivers are installed for the device.
Hope this helps you guys who're facing the problem with syncing your SGH-i780 with Windows 7.
