I recently installed Windows 7 on my computer and having trouble to sync it with my Xperia X1 mobile phone. I tried to install ActiveSync 4.5 but Microsoft told me to install Mobile Device Center instead. The problem is that the computer doesn't recognize the phone so no drivers is installed for it and that prevents the Mobile Device Center to find my phone. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Try the latest Mobile Device Center for that.

That is the version I have installed –  user28983 Feb 21 '10 at 22:46

On your device: If you go to system settings > connections tab > usb to pc and select "Disk Drive (Faster file transfer)" WMD should detect the device and install software for it.

After that you can change it back to "ActiveSync (Sync with Outlook)" and you'll be able to sync.
