Well, at least it does that in my dreams, shortly before I HULKZILLA-SMASH the little piece o'.... oh well.

I have a peculiar problem with this phone, and Google is abuzz with so much marketing cruft, 20-minute-reviews and outright junk that any solid information, if it exists out there, is so well hidden under that pile of electronic dung that I can't find it - so yeah, this forum isn't the best place to ask this, but I'm desperate.

When I have the phone attached to my computer over an USB cable and try to perform any kind of file management, including syncing music to the phone, regardless of the mode (USB mass storage device, MTP device), program or USB port, at some point the phone will just stop accepting new files, or responding to IO in general. At that point, any attempt to access the phone's memory (actually, an 8GB Micro SD card) results in the application (on the PC) hanging until I unplug the USB cable. I have:
- rebootet, PC and phone.
- updated the phone's software (well, tried to. It claims to be up to date).
- formatted the memory card, several times.
- tried all available USB connection modes.
- tried different USB ports.
- killed a chicken, painted my face with its blood, performed the rituals and called upon the arcane forces of the seventh hell of computer trickery (i.e. installed Win XP SP2 in a virtual machine, routed the USB port there and tried all the other crap - why? because I was too lazy fetching my laptop; I only did that after the XP VM failed as well - that is, the phone appeared fine, but would lock up as per the description above -, as did the laptop).

So, yeah. Help? Anyone? Pleeeeeeaaaase? ???

I cant think of anything to suggest - is there no T715 forum somewhere? It sounds to me there is a firmware bug on the device.

Have you tried a different memory card.  I had a similar problem with a SE Elm and PNY 4gb MicroSD.  Would only let me copy so much to the card and then errors.  Same thing happened with replacement PNY card.  Was thinking the phone was bad until I cracked and bought a Sandisk.  Was fine after that.

I guess I should try that, but this is a Sandisk SDHC card and the bug (?) appears after copying one to five songs to the completely empty card... I was hoping to solve this without throwing more money at the problem... but I might use this as an excuse to get a multiformat cardreader - with even cheapo low-fi grocery store PCs coming with gazillion-in-one cardreaders nowadays, it's kinda weird that this household has not a single one, anyways. ^^

Steven: that's sort of what I tried to find. Sony Ericsson doesn't host any forums and the tech support and FAQ are a bloody joke. Seriously, two out of three articles about problems with the phone firmware or hardware instruct you to remove the battery and try again. That'll make it work. Promise. That is the solution you were looking for <insert Jedi handwave>...

That was exactly my problem.  4 or 5 songs to an empty card and no more.  Have you tried it without MusicBee?

Yeah, I have. I've tried WinAmp, Windows Media Player (shudder), Sony Ericsson's Media Manager and plain Windows Explorer. Always the same result.
By the way, I just tried syncing music to the built-in phone memory instead of the SDHC card, and guess what? Well, it went a bit better then previously, but with similar results in the end. It managed to transfer 40MB of music files; 45MB of internal storage remain free.

I tested the SDHC card with a friend's card reader today, and guess what?
Yup, the card is fine. I filled it with around 7 Gigs of music files and put it back into the phone, and after waiting for the phone to scan the new files, it had found and read all the files' tags (and could also play every file I tested).

So... I just don't care anymore. This <insert string of expletives here> thing can <some more expletives for good measure>. ::)
