    The driver is loaded when you connect the phone, all four of them.
    With Win 7 and 8 - Connect the phone and uninstall the two items in the device manager related to the phone. Disconnect the phone and turn it all the way off. Connect it to the PC . The phone will turn on becuse it is charging. Drivers will load. This takes a while.
    You should have the phone in portable devices in device manager and the phone with five folders in windows explorer.

    Big thanks for the instructions! Shutting down the phone before connecting solved my problems :-)

    I have updated my windows 8, to windows 8.1 and can't connect my Lumia 1020 to computer.

    I have tried going through the device it will not add. I have deleted stuff to try and add it but cant find the device. I have turned phone off and this has not worked nothing installs.

    I am getting pretty annoyed now as I have not got any space left on my mobile.

    what can I do?

    if you are using win 8.1 pro N or KN then many programs will need the library file MFReadWrite.dll Google for it

    for sure you will need the program: Windows Phone App for Desktop
