I’m reflashing one of our N95′s to take it into use. But for some reason the Nokia Software Updater wasn’t finding the phone even after all the drivers were installed, the computer rebooted, the phone reconnected etc.
Turned out the connectivity driver had picked a COM port for the USB connection that was already in use.
So to fix the error, you just have to connect the phone, go to Device Manager, go to the N95 COM port with a warning icon, properties, change the COM port to a reasonable one, disconnect, connect again and voila – the updater finds the phone.
Mebbe this is useful to somebody out there.
