I got my new nokia lumia 920 today and the phone itself works fine but I can't get any connectivity with windows 8
On my laptop I have windows 8 64 bit and it won't install any drivers for the phone, device manger just shows:
rm-821|nokia lumia 920
On my desktop pc I have windows 8 32 bit, it it shows it as a windows phone, but that's as far as I get
Neither will work with nokia suite as it says the phone is not in pc suite mode, tried blue tooth as well, the phone detects the desktop pc but won't allow access to the phone
Any suggestions? as I have a backup from my old nokia n8 and need to copy the contacts and if possible messages as well

I've not had any problems at all linking mine to a PC but I don't have windows 8 32 bit to hand, all the systems I'm round are 64. Sorry, I'd help more if I could. I'll test mine on a 32 bit sys as sooon as I can.
I've got a few seperate problems with mine though in this thread. Just out of interest, can you turn your phone off whilst it's charging? Mine appears to be scared of the dark, it just powers it's self back up.

I turn it off to charge, but still swtiches back on
can't copy things across to it seeing as it's not detected(ie to create ringtones etc), goignt otry and remove the 64 bit and try a clean install, but even then nokia suite won't work, and the windows phone app only alows a certain amount, but that doesn't detect the phone either

I haven't tried connecting using any nokia connect software, I just plugged the phone in, it installed the drivers and then I can access the phones memory like a removeable drive called 'windows phone' in file manager, explorer, my computer etc...
Didn't need any software at all.

Hey, Liama.... LOL - Scared of the dark. Be rest assured I’ve had 3 different Windows Phones over the last 2.5 years and all have refused to turn off while charging. That ones a feature not a Bug.... :-)
