Try uninstalling / reloading the drivers click here I never bother with he PC suites as more trouble than they're worth. Just drag and drop in explorer once the machine recognises the phone

The pc suite I think don't run with xp and this is the problem.

Would still having xp cause problems when attaching phone to pc via usb data cable?

P.s yes I did used to go to my device in 'my computer' and then drag and drop into a folder on my pc but I can't do that now hence my pic on my post

Hi Fruit Bat

I've downloaded the drivers zip file to my desktop.

Where it says 'right click computer name' & click 'add legacy', this isn't there as you can see, only 'scan for hardware changes':- click here seen 'add hardware' in control panel, which brings up a wizard:- click here wizard searches then i get this:- click here how do i install the drivers from the zip file on my desktop please?

Are drivers uninstalled ?

plug in phone and it should find and reinstall drivers

if not extract the drivers from the zip file to a folder

when the install new hardware wizard runs point it to the folder where you extracted the drivers.

I don't know if they are uninstalled, OK I have unzipped the file and now have the folder on my desktop. I will try when I get home. I did plug phone in earlier but it didn't notice the folder I unzipped but will try again and post response. Thanks.

Appologies, the way I layed it out obviously didn't work, basically it's the options then the results, hope you get jist.

When telling it to find the driver open the Xperia z3 folders until you find the one with the .inf file.

Another way may be to use explorer and just to right click the .inf file in the Z3 folder and select install. that may well install the driver.
