can't install nokia pc suite; 6300; driver problem

[ Edited ]

OS: Win XP SP3

Phone: Nokia 6300

Nokia PC Suite: ver 7.1.60.0

Nokia OVI Suite: ver 3.0

connecting through miniUSB from Canon manufacturer (please, don't tell me that USB-to-miniUSB cables from different manufacturers are different  :smileyhappy:).

 

All the previous Nokia installations and programs have been deleted, also the registry has been cleaned up.

When trying to install  new version for Nokia PC Suite have gotten a message (tried several times - the result is the same):

"Can't remove the previous version of Nokia PC Suite.  Installiation aborted because of an error."

 

Though I can easily install Nokia OVI Suite (the same thing happens with Nokia Software Updater). But (!) when trying to connect the cell phone to PC I get a message: "There are problems trying to install driver." So may be the new driver doesn't fit with my 6300. But where can I get the older one, which would fit  well with newly versions of Nokia software? I even went to "Start->Control Panel->Hardware Installation" and tried to  install manually the cell phone. But the yellow "?" was near "Nokia 6300", and also got a massage "Please, reinstall drivers to this device".

 

Nokia PC Suite ver 6.83.14 and the Connectivity driver that had been installed previously worked well (with this Canon miniUSB cable).

 

How can I update software? And can I update cell phone's software using an old version of PC Suite?

 

Please use plain text.

I installed the new Nokia PC Suite in the following way:

1. Uninstalled all the previous versions of Nokia software.

2.  Took a disk which came with phone (the old version).

3. Chose: "Install Nokia PC Suite" .

4. In the opened window (after some time of program's "thinking process") there was an inscription: "New version of PC Suite 7.1.40.0 available"; clicked OK. Though, the downloded version was not 7.1.40, but 7.1.60.0.

5. The program downloded the new version and installed it without any problems.

 

BUT after this I still have problems with connectivity of  Nokia 6300 to PC by USB cable.
