However, this does not prevent you for accessing the memory card. Just select the second option on your mobile after connecting the USB cable to the computer.
The first option is for Portal and the last one for charge only.
Your card should mount automatically as removable storage and seen under Windows Explorer.
I am also on CM10, but I cant access moto phone portal from Win 7. Also my memory card is not getting mounted as removable storage. I tried this on different PC's but same issue.

Is it CM10 specific or Windows 7 related?

I was "about to" place my order for Motorola Defy Plus when I stumbled upon Samsung's Galaxy S Duos. Many articles state that its been launched in the first week of September already but neither flipkart has it, nor ebay.

Does anyone have any info whether Galaxy S Duos has been launched and is available in the physical retail market if not in cyberspace?

I tried installing latest drivers from Motorola site, but even then I cant access memory card. It charges fine but keeps giving installation error for some adb drivers or something else.

It connects fine on win XP.

Win 7 is the WORST ever edition of the already crappy OS. I'd suggest removing it and installing Ubuntu

On serious note, this looks like a 32-64 bit driver issue.

Can I upgrade from the phone itself, using the Defy ROM Updater app that comes with CM10?

Not yet on the shelves. Samsung India Estore is accepting pre-bookings and rumored price is 18k. For that price, there are better alternatives.

At 12k, Defy+ is a great phone, especially if you want to mod it.

Disagree on win 7 being the worst ever edition of windows. There are other contenders for that position - the windows Me and Vista.

I like windows 7 better than XP and all other versions till date.

Coming to the usb part, won't it just work if you select to mount the sdcard (in phone) after you connect the usb to pc?

Oh yeah, how could I forget Win ME and Vista! But my point still stands - Win has a history of manufacturing crappy OS!

Even I faced this issue. Removed Chrome and back to the best - Dolphin.

Completely OT, but cannot resist posting. Mods please delete if you will.

iP-5 sucks!
It would be hard to call it even evolutionary, when very clearly Apple needed something revolutionary to stay in the game.
There are AT LEAST 3 Android devices right now, that beat the pants of the latest iPhone.

So, the Android party is going to grow bigger and louder - All this from one, who is still an Apple fan at heart. :(

Don't know, I don't have Wifi, so there is no point in trying that on 3G for me.
Maybe you can try and let me know.

BTW: Sygic is available for Rs. 1500 (or less) for a limited time. I just purchased a license.

Correct. Sygic + Map My India is available RS.1,402.31. Don't know for how many days the offer is going to be active.
Did you purchase the license from Google Play?
