N8 does not work with Windows-8 on my laptop

N8 does not work with Windows-8 on my laptop

 

Friends,

 

I have a problem with N8.

Until now , since I bought my N8, I worked my phone with my laptop.

I used to connect my N8 to my laptop (Windows-7) with usb cable and see all the contents of my N8 with NOKIA-PC SUITE PROGRAM (7.1.30.9)

 

I changed my laptop and bought a new laptop with Windows-8.

I connected N8 to laptop and used same PC-SUITE program.

But this time I saw nothing in my N8

 

Is there any helpful opinion to solve this issue ??

 

Best regards.....

Try the latest version of Nokia Suite and see if it makes difference ...

You need to use the newer Nokia Suite software instead as PC suite is not compatible.

Re: N8 does not work with Windows-8 on my laptop

as Psychomania and Farby have stated, it is best to upgrade to the latest version of Nokia Suite, that has official support for Windows 8 and Office 2013. Nokia PC Suite does work in Windows 8, but only in compatibility mode for Windows 7. It is recommended to stay with Nokia Suite, not Nokia PC Suite which is now redundant.

Re: N8 does not work with Windows-8 on my laptop

I loaded NOKIA-SUIT 3.8.30 for my N8 and my laptop (Windows-8) .

As far as I understand NOKIA SUIT is not better than PC-SUITE.

Because , with PC-SUITE I used to copy my SMS messages from my N8 to my laptop.

 

That is why , I need old PC-SUIT program.

Is there any PC-SUIT program which I still can use ??

I just loaded PC-SUITE which you recommended and saw that it works fine.

Now I can see all my SMS messages on my laptop ....

Thanks
