Windows Mobile 6.1 doesn't work with Windows Mobile Device Center

Hi Everyone

I recently aquired the Sony Xperia X1 which is running Windows Mobile 6.1
I can't get this device to work with my Windows Vista and Windows Mobile
Device Center no matter what I try.

The drivers that are installed always come up with Code 18 (Reinstall
driver) or something to that sort

I have tried the following:

-Reinstalled Windows Mobile device center from the device disk as well as
latest version downloaded
-Hard reset the phone
-Updated the phones software
-Unticked the option on the phone to "use advanced network functionality"
-Installed Vista SP2
-Tried it on another Vista machine with the same result.

The driver alternates between showing as "Generic Serial" (If the advance
network functionality is turned off), "Generic RNDIS" (If it is turned on)
and at some stage it even shows as "Windows Mobile Device"

I have used the device with ActiveSync on an XP machine and it works with no
problem.
A friend has had the exact some problem with his Samsung Omnia so I don't
believe this is specific to my device. I have also seen a number of posts on
different forums but none with solutions.

Some guidance here would be greatly appreciated

Regards
Brendon

>> come up with Code 18 (Reinstall driver) <<

my primary suspect would be that WCEUSBSH.INF and WCEUSBSH.CAT doesn't
contain that device's usb id... best bet would be to contact sony or a
sony specific support forum.

Also check your async cd, find that file, and, if successful, right
click and either run or install it.

Are you using a third-party (non-Microsoft) software firewall by any chance?
If so, try disabling it temporarilty to see if the device connects without
it.
