This has nothing to do with Windows 7, I've had that happen even on Windows XP, even when using Bluetooth too... Same symptions, I'm able to navigate the phone (and the M2 flash card) from my PC (and transfer stuff to it freely) but SE PC Suite won't connect, my Widcomm BT drives say the phone isn't connected either, and the phone itself is saying that the BT connection is failing as well... So basically nothing's working yet I can navigate and transfer files normally, lol.
W580i here btw. As you said, simply restarting the services fixes it right up... It's only happened twice to me, dunno what caused it really.
Btw, have any of you using SE phones tried an alternative to SE's PC Suite? I heard some good things about 'MyPhoneExplorer' from FJ Soft, haven't bothered to try it yet though. Mostly I've just been using the SE PC Suite to create backups of my calendar (had the phone die once already when I wasn't making backups, what a PITA)... But I wanted to start sync'ing said calendar/contacts with Outlook or Thunderbird (and then sync either w/Gcal), was wondering if SE PC Suite worked well in this regard.
