It's a Nokia nock-off and the driver didn't do it for me or my phone.
Andrew Myer
You can read enough stories on the WEB of people that bought this cable and it just doesn't work.
Fred
There were no attempts, by either operating system, at recognizing it as a device at all.

Total waste of money. No matter what we tried, the driver would not work. I tried the CD and downloads and it still would never work with the phone it was advertised to work with.

My daughter was SOO disappointed. She wanted to download pictures from her cell phone to the computer.

Got the cable to work after some frustration and research. I have the Nokia 6101. The driver CD included with the cable did not actually contain a driver for my particular model (!). Following the model charts on the CD basically directed me to download Nokia PC Suite. This software package does include a driver but not for this cable (only for the Nokia branded cable). After some web searches I found a suggestion to download a driver for the KQ-U8A cable. This driver worked for this CA-42 cable. Win XP recognized the cable and then I used the Nokia PC Suite as a data manager for my phone. Apparently there are internal differences between these generic cables and the Nokia branded cable.

WE also got this cable from eforcity - I would not recommend them as a vendor or this cable. We have yet to get it to work. The first package that was sent never made it. The seecond package that was sent, the CD for the driver was damaged. I do NOT recommend this at all.

Both of the other reviews said the cable did not work. In short, yes..the cable does not work. But after some poking around on the disk I found that you need to do certain things in a certain order to get the cable to function...you also need to use the same USB port every time...as far as I remember you need to install the driver from the CD 1st, then download the current version of Nokia PC Suite, install that, plug in the cable and it should work...but if not try other orders of these things and keep in mind that I may have forgotten something.

This cable has serious installation problems. Even if your phone is listed as compatible it might not work. You can read enough stories on the WEB of people that bought this cable and it just doesn't work.
If you value your time, you'll spend more than what the cable is worth trying to install it, you can be SURE of that.

I read the reviews on here, and thought I'd take a chance. I tried connecting via PC Suite. I tried CA-42 drivers from the web. I went to install the software on the enclosed CD, but got a warning message saying that the software had not been confirmed compatible with Windows and that continuing could cause damage to computer/system. I tried downloading the driver (KQ-U8A) that one of the other viewers recommended, but could not get the cable to recognize there was a phone connected, no matter what I tried.
I finally broke down & bought the Nokia branded cord, and it worked like a charm, right out of the box. My recommendation: don't bother with this cord. You may be able to get it to work, but you're more likely to end up having to go with something else anyway.

I received my order in great condition two days before the estimated delivery date. I'm using this Nokia CA-42 Compatible USB Data Cable with a Nokia 6103 phone. The latest CA-42 cable driver off Nokia's site doesn't seem to work with it. But it DOES work just fine with the old driver provided on the CD, and the latest version of Nokia PC Suite (7.0.8.2) from the website. No Complaints!
