Anything to do with Telecom Sanyo Phones I always head to www.sprintusers.com.

Searched there and found http://www.futuredial.com/support/download/USB_Drivers.htm

Maybe what you're after.

Great tip riahon!

For those that arent aware, Telecom has aligned their network to be similar to Sprint in the USA so we can get access to their handset range. Consequently Sanyos especially, are almost the same as Sprint phones from a users point of view.

i have the same phone as you do all you do is plug your sanyo in to the computer via the usb cable now if windows ask's for any drives just click cancel  and pick up your phone  press menu go to tools/extras go down to  "USB Connection" then usb mass storeage go to option yes and the phone will connect to the pc just like that no drives needed.  go to my computer and in there should be a removeable storeage drive if not reboot your computer


have a good one

Joe - do you run Windows 98? If you are running XP, you are in a different situation, as XP handles USB mass storage with ease, but not always the case with 98.

It would be helpful to the OP to know which OS you are on.

Cheers.

No stress. Windows XP you can pretty much jam any mass storage into an available usb port and it will just work - not the case with W98.

Hey Everyone,

I recently came across the same problem, and it was pretty easy to solve (google is your best mate) a simple search for "sanyo 5600 mass storage drivers 98" came back with this link to the sanyo website: http://www.sanyo.com/wireless/handsets/faqs/faqs_5600.htm its an FAQ page with a link to download the drivers needed :D

[Plug] We knew this would be a problem. That's why the APT Sanyo cable + driver includes the Win98 Mass storage driver. It's also included on the Datapilot CD from memory. [/Plug].
