For PC connection mode you need XP service pack 3 and a recent windows mediaplayer.

For developer mode you need to manually install an inf file. Since apparently I cannot attach it here :(

Open wordpad and copy/paste what is between the lines below and save it as jolla.inf

(or from here if the contents got mangled: http://pastebin.ca/2554639 )

Plug in the device => choose install from specific location => don't search. I will choose... => network adapters => have disk => chose sailfish.inf => say yes to the warning => continue anyway on the windows logo screen => done

Windows XP is an almost 13 year old OS that is end of life (out of sale for almost 6 years), which means it is not a realistic canidate for support anymore.

what I've understood in the past discussions: xp is dead, no one will bother to make it working on USB. If you don't like that (sadly) you can either use bluetooth or return the phone.

:(

(see other replies in this discussion to my posts)

Most probably it is because there are no drivers available for Windows XP. On Windows 7 the driver to transfer files is available. Eventually you can find a compatible MTP driver for Windows XP.

Where you can find XP driver for Jolla ????

tvppes ( 2014-01-16 07:58:08 +0300 )edit

I saw some comments that Windows Media player 11 includes MTP drivers, so that might help. I don't have XP to try with.

Windows XP is almost End Of Life, I would consider an upgrade (or switch to linux, If you don't want to spend money on a new Windows license)

re:Jukka, it just can read, cannot do anything.
