I've done the whole routine several times:
+ Start the install. Basic flies, Driver hangs. Reset the machine.
+ Plug in the phone, follow the prompt to install the driver. Driver Hangs. Reset the machine.
+ Go to Control Panel. Delete all traces of software for Nokia: PC Suite, Modems, Connectivity, etc. Anything with a Nokia name
+ Go to Control Panel > System > Device Manager. Plug in the phone, delete the module that pops up with a yellow question mark, reboot.
It does not work.
Tried the same with the latest Ovi Suite, same results. The software sucks.
I thought maybe the path was the problem. Initially I wanted to modify the installation path, but then finally accepted the default. No change.
I've owned Nokia gear since their start. Nokia's gear is precious. Beautiful. A pleasure to behold. But their PC sync software, IMHO, sucks. When will they support Linux?
I then also tried this with Ovi Suite with the same results. There is a huge latency with the Cable Connectivity Driver that just does not work for me.
My phones are the latest: the N8 and N900.
