    Hello,

    I have conntect my HTC 8X to a windows 7 and a windows vista computer, but the device was not shown as mass storage device?

    Windows can't find my phone. Are there any settings I have to make?

    thx

    Have you downloaded and installed the WP8 sync util?

    Have you had any crashes with the util?

    No, I didn't download the tool. Should I? Can u please post a link?

    As I read in the internet, there should not be any software needed for mass storage support (http://forums.windowscentral.com/1743572-post3.htm)

    When i plug my WP8 in, it pops up a window, and theres a link to the app. I don't recall trying to use the WP8 device before downloading it.

    Okay, I downloaded the tool for windows 7, but it can't find my wp8 phone.

    Is it possible, that the usb port on the phone is defect (but it is charching ...)?

    Solution: The USB cable didn't work :-(

    Glad that I got a new one, and anything is working!

    Glad you found that.

    I've been using a cheap USB cable for ages with my WP7, recently started using the cable that came with my 920, and i swear my WP7 charges and syncs far quicker.

    Turns out you do need to spend money on decent cables :mad:
