About connecting your device via a USB cable
When connecting your mobile device to the computer via a USB cable, make sure you select the correct USB mode for the connection in your mobile device. There are several USB modes to choose from. To be able to use your device with Nokia Ovi Suite, select Nokia Ovi Suite (or PC Suite) USB mode.
You can only use Nokia Ovi Suite in the Nokia Ovi Suite (or PC Suite) USB mode. If you select the mass storage mode and have Nokia Ovi Suite running, Nokia Ovi Suite automatically tries to change the USB mode back to Nokia Ovi Suite (or PC Suite) mode. The automatic change of USB mode does not happen with all device models.
If you want to use the mass storage USB mode to, for example, use a computer program other than Nokia Ovi Suite, you cannot have Nokia Ovi Suite running at the same time. Select File > Exit to exit Nokia Ovi Suite. When you are finished using the mass storage USB mode, change it back to Nokia Ovi Suite (or PC Suite) mode and reopen Nokia Ovi Suite.
For information on supported USB cable types, see System requirements.
To select the USB mode, do either of the following:
To select the USB mode separately each time you connect your device to the computer, select Nokia Ovi Suite (or PC Suite) USB mode on your device when the device prompts you to choose the USB mode to be used.
To select Nokia Ovi Suite (or PC Suite) as a default USB mode on your device, go to Settings > Connectivity or Connection depending on the term used on your device, and under USB cable, select Nokia Ovi Suite (or PC Suite) USB mode. Then you do not need to select the correct mode each time you connect your device to the computer. Note that this is not possible with all device models.
Refer to the user guide of your device for more detailed information on selecting the USB mode.
Always check that you use original Nokia cables with Nokia Ovi Suite. Check the labelling on your cable.
