When syncing your Android device using CompanionLink via Direct USB (Mass Storage Mode) your device needs to be set to a certain USB mode in order to sync, on the vast majority of modern devices this process is the same and is detailed here. For legacy devices you can use this guide, note that we may not be able to support legacy devices due to their age.

Motorola devices

Moto X | Droid Ultra | Droid Razr HD | Droid RAZR | Droid X | Droid X2 | Droid 2 | Droid 2 Global | Droid 3 | Droid Pro | Droid Bionic | Atrix | Atrix 2 | Photon

For the Droid Razr, Droid Razr Maxx or Droid Razr M, you will need to select "MTP Mode" to start the sync.

For many other Motorola devices, you need to select "Charge Only" or "None" as the USB connection type when connecting to the PC. More Info

Droid Pro (w/ 2.3.3 update) The recent Android 2.3.3 update to Droid Pro users may cause their devices to no longer mount in USB Mass Storage Mode. This prevents DejaOffice and CompanionLink from syncing via USB. This can be resolved by following these steps - Droid Pro does not mount to PC.

Samsung devices
