I up graded to Droid, now I want to add the new phone to my pc.

I though all I needed to do was click remove the (old phone) then click add(new device).

The pc did not automaticly find and add the new Droid.  What did I do wrong?

Try this: In your phone's settings, go to Connect to PC > Default Connection Type and choose Disk Drive. When you plug it into your computer, it should recognize it as a drive. (I have a different Droid, but your menu should be similar.)

Even without changing the default, when you connect to your PC, you should see a notification in your bar that you can drag down and choose Disk Drive.

All you have to do is hook your phone to your PC using the supplied USB chord. On your phone, in the Notification Bar, you should see the USB symbol (looks like a trident). Pull down the Notification Bar and make sure that Mass Storage is selected. Meanwhile, on your PC, first you will get an obnoxious URL which you can close. Open up "Computer" on your PC and you should see a new letter designating a new removable drive. This is your Phone. Then you can drag and drop from your PC to your Droid and visa versa. There is nothing on your PC you have to delete. Once you hook the Droid to the PC everything is automatic (including getting that obnoxious Verizon blurb).

Not applicable

Or, plug the phone into the USB port, select Mass Storage on the phone, open up Explore on your computer and look for the drive letter that represents your phone.
