Windows Media Player driver

Hi All, I have an S60 phone (Nokia 5500 Sport)_ with the latest formware loaded. I just downloaded the WMP driver as I wanted to sync the phone with WMP (obviously).
However, when I select media player (after connecting the USB cable) the PC finds new hardware and installs the driver OK (as expected). The problem is that when I click 'finish' the pc re-detects new hardware and goes through the process again and again and again. I can't get out of this loop at the moment. This happens every time I connect the cable and select 'media player' from the phone menu.

Any advice would be very welcome.

Thank you.

Re: Windows Media Player driver

I notice that the Windows Media Player driver for my N80ie says it is for Windows Media Player 10. I have Windows Media Player 11. Is that why it doesn't work?

Re: Windows Media Player driver

I had the same experience and it's a little bit a shame that after so long there isn't a wmp11 driver for the 5500. So I have made myself one and it works at least! (very simple in fact)

1. Create a text file and save it as: "Nokia_5500_Sport_WMP11_driver.inf"

2. Copy/paste:

[Version]
Signature="$WINDOWS NT$"
Class=WPD
ClassGUID={EEC5AD98-8080-425f-922A-DABF3DE3F69A}
Provider=%Provider%
DriverVer=10/03/2005,1.0.0.0

[Manufacturer]
%MfgName%=Nokia

[Nokia]
%Nokia.DeviceDesc%=Nokia_MTP, USB\VID_0421&PID_047E

[Nokia_MTP]
Include = wpdmtp.inf
Needs = WPD.MTP

[Nokia_MTP.hw]
Include = wpdmtp.inf
Needs = WPD.MTP.Registration

[Nokia_MTP.Services]
Include = wpdmtp.inf
Needs = WPD.MTP.Services

[Nokia_MTP.CoInstallers]
Include = wpdmtp.inf
Needs = WPD.MTP.CoInstallers

[Nokia_MTP.Wdf]
Include = wpdmtp.inf
Needs = WPD.MTP.Wdf
UmdfServiceOrder=WpdMtpDriver

[Strings]
Nokia.DeviceDesc = "Nokia 5500 Sport"
MfgName = "Nokia"
Provider = "Nokia"

3. Save it and it's ready to install
