    PC Companion & Media Go (Sony Ericsson Phone)


    Hello everyone!

    My wife just got a Sony Ericsson (W705) cellphone. It has some multimedia features that I was able to sync in my xp partition after installing the CD (PC Companion) and downloading software (Media Go).

    May I please know if its possible to sync the same in my linux partitions? Preferably in Linux Mint 7 please.

    Thank you very much!

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Assuming they don't have Linux software, then you have two options:

    1. Try to install/run under Wine.
    2. Run on Windows in a virtual machine.

    Option 1 is great if it works. Option 2 is the most reliable.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    Code:

    I have no experience using Wine as of the moment.

    Code:
    2. Run on Windows in a virtual machine.
    I guess I might have a better chance with VirtualBox for now.

    Thanks again Rubberman

    The only way is by installing it on VirtualBox. I made a tutorial on how you can do this and connect your phones USB to VirtualBox

    I can't post URL's yet. Need to have written 15 more postes before I can post URL's, but if you mail me at hanna.camille@hannacam.net then I can send you the link

    I tried Wine, but there was no way to get it to work
