The 520 isn't compatible with the Zune software. Instead, you will need the Windows Phone app for desktop

Maybe it's time for you to consider upgrading to Windows 7 or 8 because the Windows phone desktop application doesn't work with XP

Windows Phone 8 uses MTP for media files transfer. While this is supported it is highly unstable and unreliable on XP, even in SP3 with Media Player 10 (Both must be installed for this to even work). Also Windows XP is known to have serious USB issues with certain hardware.

 

So yes, maybe it's time to move awayd from an ancient and near EOL OS and get WIN7 at least.

Based on the error message, it seems there's an issue with your computer. It's best to contact Microsoft for further assistance.

I cannot install a driver on my PC for my Nokia Lumia 520. Can anybody help me?

I would like to be able to use the PC Suite. It worked very well with my old Nokia E65.

This error comes from trying to install the desktop on XP. This app is just for Win7 and 8.

All you can do with XP is to use windows explorer to move files back and forth from phone to PC. There is no sync available for XP

I had the same problem. upgrade your windows media player to version 11. It worked for me. 520 synchronizes easily
