    Does anyone have a USB driver that will work for the Dare other than the one that comes on the disk?

    I have tried the one from the disk, downloaded it directly from the VZW website and LG's site as well and it will not find it when I plug the phone in. I spent a little over 2 hours on with tech support and the only way the phone can be recognized is in mass storage mode. It will not recognize it for tethering or to work with Bitpim.

    The driver is there and I can physically see it in the computer and the phone is recognized when it is plugged in but gives me the error that the hardware could not be installed becasue the wizard could not find the necessary software.

    The Dare is at Version 5 software and the USB driver is version 4.8.1 Is there an earlier version that will work with this or a later version that is available from an alternate source?

    Ok, this one got resolved. Apparently the phone has to be powered off for XP to recognize it and properly install the drivers which makes the top 10 list of dumbest computer error resolutions I have encountered.
