OK so I was never able to get my Sprint Media Manager to work and I've tried sooo many different things. Every time I put in my email and name and then it says "connecting", the phones "syncing with computer" message disappears and then I get an error on manager. Today something new happened. Everytime I go on Manager it now displays this message "Internet Eploere connot download ...xBz9QJ_89Mw8_YJ0RUUAk9OZqw!!/ from manager.sprintpcs.com Internet Explorer was not able to open this Internet site. The resquested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please Try again later" I have a wireless router and am able to use the internet jusgt fine on internet explorer and firefox and I even disabled the firewalls. also, after the message I still cannot connect my phone to manager This is now getting annoying. I had this phone phone for a month and i REALLY want it to work with manager. For reference I have Vista 32-bit Premium Laptop 3GB RAM
Sprint has been upgrading some of their websites - I don't know this for sure, but perhaps the one you are trying to download from is/was affected by that. Last Friday, I downloaded the Sprint Media Manager software to my Vista Home Premium notebook - it installed and worked like a charm.
I am running Media Manager 1.0.0 Build 82 and it crashes constantly on Vista. Running it on Vista Home Premium laptop with 4gb of ram. I can upload or edit maybe 3 songs at a time before it crashes.
I finally got to the point where I don't even bother opening it up now... if I want to send songs over to my phone, I just pull out the card and put it in the SD adapter. My laptop has a SD reader, and that works better for me... it seems quicker than going USB on my laptop, even though it's USB 2.0 On my PC, I just connect it to the USB cable which I always keep hooked up on my work computer for a quick charge and I bring it up via Open in Folder View and drag and drop from there.
You may have better luck with the Media Manager than I do, but in my experience, it's a garbage app.
version 1.0.0 Build 82 is what I got when I downloaded 3 days ago. It works fine on my Notebook - Vista Home Premium, 2GB RAM. I don't really use it that much - just did it because people were complaining about it working with Vista - works for me - YMMV
that way you don't have to go through phones and locate the Instinct 😉
