Yeah, the exact same thing happened to me. I had to try it several times before the PC recognized the connection. I think I even rebooted a couple of times before it worked.

Keep trying.

I use this BT dongle and it works great. I don't even use that cable anymore and the BT software was easy to install and connected to my phone. Lots of nice BT software too.

I have the same problem it seems to hang leaving a box saying installing nokia usb parent driver or something - ive also noticed it leaves the usb connection icon displayed on the handset even after disconnecting :(

Very annoying and thats with the latest version of nokia pc suite downloaded looks like im gonna have to buy a bluetooth dongle and try that way for now !!!!

I had a problem connecting the two together as well.

What I did to make it was when it said to connect...connect the usb to your computer, THEN connect the phone.

Don't have the usb already connected to the pc.

Worked for me, let me know if it does the same for you.

I just solved the problems after hours of trying.

Run the connection thing on pc suite
Connect the usb cable to the pc and phone
While it tries to connect turn off the phone
Now turn the phone back on
Put your pin in if you have one
and viola..... it correctly installs all the drivers and connects

i was having exact problems myself and thought it very frustrating. what finally did it for me is when the phone is connected to the pc, go to the connection/sync page - and then it started recognizing the phone...
