Re: nokia link

It downloads absolutely fine from this page:

http://europe.nokia.com/support/product-support/nokia-link/compatibility-and-download

If it won't let you download it check your browser, firewall or any other security settings on your computer.

Re: nokia link

Are there any other options for transferring music and videos to and from my N9 to PC? Any non-Nokia programs?

 

I can't believe whoever made Nokia Link failed to include an option not to "start with windows". Any program that forces itself to start with windows without asking or offering a choice, is not something I want to install. Bad programming etiquette!

 

I know I could mess with msconfig, but I shouldn't need to. I only need to transfer infrequently, so don't want it starting by itself.

 

What other ways to get files across to the PC?

Re: nokia link

You don't need any software at all to transfer files to the N9, just use good old simple drag & drop through windows explorer. If given the option connect it in mass storage mode but be sure to use windows "safely remove the hardware" option when you've finished.

Re: nokia link

thanks. It worked. I think the first time I tried maybe I tapped the wrong option. Good to manage files on the N9 through windows, makes sense to have it like a USB drive.

 

Pretty sure in Windows 7 you can just pull out usb cable and it unmounts on its own safely. I am too used to doing that now without any issues.
