bitpim wont detect lg vx6100

Archived from groups: alt.cellular.verizon (More info?)

So I have the USB cable and installed the drivers. I downloaded the
bitpim and it will not detect my phone. I have changed the settings to
try all of the possible com ports and still nothing. Can anyone help?

More about bitpim wont detect vx6100

    I just got bitpim working with my LG VX6100 yesterday. Whenever I connect
    the phone (and WinXP recognizes it as a USB device), bitpim pops up a
    messagebox saying "No phone detected" - but if I try to send/get data from
    the phone, it works just fine. I think the error message itself is an
    error...

    Bitpim + 6100 work fine for me. Plug the USB cable from my laptop into
    the phone. Turned on the phone. Laptop saw the device as new and
    prompted for the drivers. Put in the Verizon Wireless CD and gave it the
    first LGE device found. Went a few rounds with the driver (XP saw the
    phone as a modem, USB serial port, and a couple other things).

    I had already downloaded Bitpim but recalled I needed to install the phone
    first when I was saw the serial port setting as auto within the program.
    After the drivers were installed, I ran a test (with the phone on) to
    import data from the phone. Worked like a charm the first time.

    So, if you are having problems, did you use the drivers from the VZW
    media? Was the phone turned on? Is your cable from VZW (mobile office
    kit)?

    I am using a data cable and drivers that I purchased from the internet,
    not the verizon ones. The drivers loaded fine and there are a few to
    choose from when I go into the settings on the bitpim but none of them
    work. I am also running win2k, with no service packs, every time I
    install the service pack I get the blue screen and have to boot into
    safe and uninstall the damn thing. Does the cd that came with the phone
    from verizon have the drivers? Or do you have to buy the "mobile pack"
