Problems on installing a cable driver for C3-00

Problems on installing a cable driver for C3-00

Recently I bought a C3-00 and a data cable CA-101 (because the C3-00 package does not include the cable data). Then I download the Nokia connectivity cable driver software and install it in my laptop. It does installed, but as I connect my C3-00 with thw laptop and check Device Manager, it always appear with an exclamation mark. I try to uninstall, restart the computer and restart the phone, then install the driver again. The driver installed, but still has an exclamation mark. I check the Nokia connection manager, it said: The device cannot start (code 10)

What does it mean? I repeat the process 3 times, but it results the same.

My computer uses a Windows XP Home edition, version 2002, service pack 2.

I used to have a driver for my old 6280 model, but I have removed it before installing the new driver. I also have chosen type: USB on Nokia connection manager, as advised in the Nokia connectivity cable drivers manual. When previously I used my old 6280, the connection worked very good between the phone and the computer using CA-53 cable.

Please guide me how to do the installation successfully, so I can connect my C3-00 with my computer.

One more question, can a computer (a laptop) be installed with 2 cable drivers? For example the CA-101 for C3-00 and the CA-53 for 6280.

Re: Problems on installing a cable driver for C3-00

so what happened to your laptop and your phone ? i say :nothing just  sonething wrong with your  Nokia_connecting_Cable_Driver.msi.

you said  you have unistalled the old pc suit  and used the pc suit cleaner,but it did't work .

first you have to delete the files of the old pc suit . then  download the 

 latest Nokia_Flashing_Cable_Driver.msi  on the nokia web .

then downloaded the Nokia.Flashing.Cable.Driver.msi(you just search it on the internet ,it's small about 900kb)

what you should do next is just double clicking

the Nokia_connecting_Cable_Driver.msi(it's free)

and move  the Nokia_Flashing_Cable_Driver.msi into the 


here if the file named is-PSEGR does't exist ,just found a new one .

then during the process .a digusting window appeares. 

the key is to search the Nokia_Flashing_Cable_Driver.msi

then click ok .then the new Nokia_connecting_Cable_Driver.msi was installed in your laptop.

the finall thing you shoud do is :download a latest pc suit ,then started it (during the process of installing ,you should't keep the phone not connecting with the laptop ,or you will fail.):smileyhappy:
