Re: N97 "MTP usb device failed" windows 7

I;ve got the same problem...

before i updated the firmware when i open file window on my windows 7 it used to show my phone as N96 and when i copy and paste film onto my phone it would automatically convert.

 

But after I updated the firmware, it shows up as N97 but now it doesn't even want to transfer my video files...

Re: N97 "MTP usb device failed" windows 7

I have the same problem.

Have anyone found a solution to this?

I disabled the Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service, but that did not work. Would appreciate any help.

I am thinking about going back to IPhone. Not impressed by the N97.

Re: N97 "MTP usb device failed" windows 7

i have had the same problem: MTP USB DEVICE FAILED. But i found a solution. You have to install on your pc program: Nokia PC Suite. Then put phone by USB to the pc and let him to found and install that mtp device. After that just turn on software updater with turn off nokia pc suite on your computer(on phone get pc suite mode) and update. 

i wish it will help you.

Re: N97 "MTP usb device failed" windows 7

I solved the problem by removing the SD card before connecting the phone. This will allow the driver to be installed properly.

Re: N97 "MTP usb device failed" windows 7

All you have to do is:

1. Make sure your computers runs Windows Media Player 10

2. Put phone in Mass Storage mode (its in the settings/connectivity/USB section)

3. Plug in the USB cable and go to Windows Explorer

4. Navigate to the drive E: Private folder on your phone and delete folder 10208913

5. Unplug USB cable

6. Turn off the phone

7. Plug the USB cable back in to the computer

8. Turn on the phone

9. Change back to PC Suite mode in settings/connectivity/USB

10. MTP will now load ok and everything should be ok

 

for me works!

Need HELP!!

I followed your step by step. But it will does not work.

Already deleted out that folder (10208913).  Now when I changed N97 back to the PC suite, WIN7 started to installing the MTP USB again. But it gave the same message that it failed.

HELP HELP!!

Re: N97 "MTP usb device failed" windows 7

Solved by repairing installation of Nokia Suite. I'm using version 3.3 of nokia suite on a windows 7 ultimate operating system. Needed this step to update firmware.After many attempts I finally overcame this problem by going to control panel>uninstall a program>scroll to nokia suite>select uninstall/change>dialog asks if you want to repair or uninstall>select repair.
*Please make sure of the fllg:
>phone must be on
>MUST be connected in PC Suite mode - If your phone tries to connect to internet or wlan, keep hitting cancel till it asks you to select (PC Suite) mode.
>Windows may try to install drivers and you'll see MTP usb device installation Failed - ignore for now
>Make sure the internet connection on your PC is active
>NOW do the repair-install as described above
>During repair windows will again install your device drivers, and this time you should be good to go :smileyhappy:
Hope this helps someone, and saves them the many hours I took to get this right.
