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
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
