Windows 7: Windows only half sees my phone

12 Oct 2014   #1

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit
Windows only half sees my phone

Connected via USB. The phone says it is connected via USB. In Explorer, if I select Computer, I see Nokia Phone Browser together with all the other devices.
However, the Phone Browser doesn't do anything. It is just there.
The phone is also not listed as a device that can be removed and ejected.

Have you tried to get windows to re-detect the phone? If not; I would try deleting and or removing it from the listed devices; then try and get windows to search for and hopefully find it again and hopefully that will resolve the issue by reinstalling the correct driver(s) for it.

Don't know why I didn't look at Device Manager first.
Re-installing the driver worked, thanks.
