    BitPim with LG VX8500 Chocolate - data does not transfer from cell to PC

    My cell screen broke and I have been trying to transfer the data from the cell to my PC. I bought the USB data cable (one in the Music Kit) and downloaded the proper driver. However, I was only successful in retrieving calendar information. Phone book, SMS, basically nothing else seems to be able to be retrieved. I cannot even get the Filesystem folders to open long enough to get information from there. This is the log entry from BitPim. Does someone have a solution to this? Any help is appreciated!

    found a video on youtube that shows how to set up bitpim - one thing that it shows is ...... make sure that device is in Modem Mode. .... that could be your problem...according to your listings, you are not in modem mode.
