How valuable is your time? Are you wasting it downloading ADB drivers for a "Free" sync for your Android?

Please note: CompanionLink has two different USB methods to synchronize to Android.

  • Direct USB (Mass Storage Mode)
  • DejaConnect USB

We recommend the USB Direct method for most customers. It is more reliable, and does not require an ADB Driver installation. Please try this method first.

1. Disconnect your Android phone from your PC.
