Re: Trying to get started. Phone wont synch to computer

Hey there @Crashdadscar,
So when you say you want your phone to sync to your computer, are you wanting to sync the photos from your mobile device? Could you please provide me some more info on exactly what it is you would like to achieve so that I can assist more accurately.
If you want to sync your photos using the automatic Camera Uploads feature, you can do so in two ways. The first being by downloading the Dropbox app on your mobile and enabling the camera uploads feature through the mobile app. 
The second, would be having the desktop app installed on your computer and enabling camera uploads through the desktop app. Your photos will then be uploaded automatically when you connect your phone to your computer. The steps for both are outlined in this Help Center article here
Hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions - Cheers!
