You must have SP3 and Windows Media Player 11 installed for the necessary files to load the driver.  In music+video settings turn of  'connect with xbox music'.

Turn the phone off and connect it to the PC and let the drivers load, takes a while.

The drivers are loaded when the phone shows up in windows explorer, containing five files. You can copy and paste or drag and drop into the phone folders.



If the drivers don't load remove the SD card and try again. If the SD card is not compatable with the phone the drivers won't load.


There is no desktop sync software for XP and Windows Phone 8.
