driver for older phone

Where are some good places to find drivers for older phones?

I have a UMX 550 (thru Kroger brand) that has a USB cable.  I've only ever used the cable for charging my phone, but it ought to double as a data cable, too, right?

Windows 7 does not detect the phone as a "drive"

To find the hardware ID, connect the device, run msinfo32.exe, look in Components -> Problems Devices.

Is this PC-Sync what you're looking for?

Very possible, except it wants a username and password to do any downloading...  : /

Is there anyway to get the PC-sync without registering?  It's probably the only time I'll use their site.

How do you know if your security is working?

Y, i just check it all out, it does seem to be a dead site.    It's not very secure either, admin/admin logged into their ftp.    

You might try calling them,

It seems to be a active line for the company.

If you need only the driver and the PC software, then you may try to find the driver based on Hardware ID and Vendor ID:
