CA-42 cable connection via nokia PC Suite

Cannot seem to see this phone although pc suite appears to function just fine...have tried several time to reinstall...
probably either operator error or a prob with the phone but....???
PC suite simply says to plug in phone and click next but never recognizes phone...
Does show cable connection in "My Computer" (winXPpro).

Re: CA-42 cable connection via nokia PC Suite

I have experienced this problem. What you need to do is plug the usb cable into the computer before switching the computer. Make sure you don't plug the other end into the mobile phone yet.
Once the machine boots up. If you've installed nokia pc suite. It an icon will appear in the taskbar. Click on it can't remember whether its right or left click, but you need to select manage connections. Now if you are using a genuine nokia data cable you shouldn't have problems but if it isn't then you need to uncheck the usb options and check the option called 'serial'. Once you've done this a button called properties or settings or configure which is greyed out should become active. Then from the drop down box you will have various options eg. com1, com2, com3. What normally happens is when you don't have the cable plugged into the usb port only com1 will be displayed. But when the usb cable is plugged in com 3 or com 4 will appear. So you select com 3 or com 4, then OK. Wait for a few seconds then connect you other end of the usb cable to your mobile and it should recognise it after a few seconds.

6070 support ca-42, so what exactly u mean, it doesnt recognise your phone (restart phone once and plug it back to pc), or it doesnt detect modem (you need to manually add nokia 6020 cable modem, there are no 6070 modem drivers for ca-42) ??
