Windows 7 and Samsung Omnia

September 9, 2009 2 comments

So, I love my Samsung Omnia. And I love Windows 7. Up until now, though, I haven’t gotten them to play nicely together.

Today, I successfully got them to be friends. I’m running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, but the process should be similar for other versions.

1. Make sure your Omnia is not connected via Bluetooth or USB to your computer.

2. Uninstall Windows Mobile Device Center from Control Panel -> Programs -> Uninstall a program

3. Download (after Windows Genuine Validation) the WMDC update (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/help/synchronize/device-center.mspx)

4. Install WMDC update.

5. Plug in Omnia and voila, it works.
