CDMA USB Modem Driver Error?

LG Cosmos TouchLG Cosmos Touch

When I connect my LG Cosmos Touch (LG-VN270) to my PC it asks if I want to install the program "TL_Bootstrap.exe". I click yes and it loads to a point, stops and then says the driver for the USB Modem was not installed. I downloaded an update from LG and still have the problem.

Is this needed?

As far as I can glean from reading, the tl bootstrap is an add-on for the android phones(?) and causes more headaches than it solves - I'm not sure what it does or what it is for; my guess would be you don't need it.

Next question - why are you trying to install a modem driver for the Cosmos Touch? Are you trying to use it to tether an internet connection for your laptop/desktop PC? I don't think the Cosmos is even capable of that . . . so there's no need for the modem driver. And if it is capable, you need to pay extra for the tethering use...

If you are simply trying to use the USB to read the SD card in the phone, you don't need a modem driver . . . when yo hook the phone up to the computer, hit END to cancel out of whatever pops up at first, then go to your Menu (on the phone) >> Settings and Tools >> Tools >> USB Mass Storage. then you should see the phone as a drive on your computer.

If you are trying to sync music, you'll need the VCast Media Manager software, I think....

When I plug in the Phone I get a Windows Autoplay window asking me what I want to do.

One is install TL Bootstrap the other is explore.
If I choose explore I see the following files

Tools (directory)
LG (icon)

The Tools directory contains the file LGUSBmodemdrivers_WHQL_Eng_Ver_4.9.7_NP_Win7

If I choose Install TL bootstrap it starts to install but then stops and tells me to re-install the USB modem driver.

Now if I do nothing, this Autoplay window disappears after about 30 seconds and a new one launches for the SD Disk that is in the phone. That works fine.
