    Today 950Xl was updated to 10.0.10586.107 but now connecting USB cable from desktop no longer recognized by desktop and does not show up in Explorer. The following did not fix the problem:

    1. Restarting desktop
    2. restarting 950XL
    3. restarting 950XL by removing battery+SIM1+SIM2+SD

    Did you try any of the methods I listed in this forum:

    http://forums.windowscentral.com/mic...-my-950xl.html

    Should resolve it.

    There's also a third and last resort method: install Nokia Care Suite (if you can find a recent version). It also installs a whole array of drivers. I'd also uninstall the "Windows phone app for Desktop", "WDRT" and Nokia Care Suite, first. Then do a clean install in that order.

    To summarize:
    Uninstall any of those three software titles first and any Nokia or phone drivers. Starting clean makes a big difference as something may have gotten 'corrupted'. Then I would start reinstalling in this order until one of the software titles installs a driver that lets your PC recognize your phone:
    1. Windows phone app for Desktop
    2. Windows Device Recovery Tool
    3. Nokia Care Suite

    I have 100% faith if you follow these steps, your phone will be recognized. I had to do this myself. I also found that after my phone was recognized, I could uninstall all the software and 'driver' packages and my PC still recognized my phone, while saving HDD space and keeping my PC 'de-cluttered'.
