    Can't Get Nokia PC Suite to work

    So, I have a N97 phone, and I'm trying to use the Nokia PC Suite, but when I attach the cord the usb to the phone, PC Suite doesn't know that it's connected. Is there any way to recognize the phone?

    Which PC Suite version do you have ?

    Do you select PC Suite mode when prompted on the phone ?

    I'm not sure of the exact version, but it's suppose to be the most up to date version.

    On the phone, I click Mass Storage.. unless i'm suppose to use the other 2 options

    If you got it from disc in the box it is guaranteed that it's not the latest version. Get it from the website.

    No wonder PC Suite cannot see your phone if you select Mass Storage instead of PC Suite mode. Why do you think you would have that option on the phone otherwise ?

    I don't have the option to go to PC Suite Mode on the phone.. =/ I didn't receive any CD, I also downloaded it from a site. I tried downloading a different version, and gave me a popup saying your current PC Suite version is the most up to date one.

    All there is
    Mass Storage
    COM Port
    PictBridge

    Can you please post a picture of the white sticker under your battery and the menu screen of your phone ?

    Where did you buy the phone from and how much did you pay ?

    the camera/light sensor doesnt look right on the fake....
    all of the sensors and camera are CIRCULAR on the real device
    none of them are OVAL like the fake device.....

    Well, after looking through the posts, I noticed I never got that USB stick.. lol..

    Yep thats definitely fake, the biggest giveaway is the smaller screen.

    Hope you didnt pay too much for it.
