Mass Storage not working
I have had no problems with the phone at all, however this morning I
got the issue reported about Finder crashing when copying files to
the phone (I was copying some album art images at the time). Anyway,
it seemed that there was a folder left there after I had to relaunch
Finder, which was corrupted. I could not delete this via the phone or
via Bluetooth, so decided to reformat the drive (Full Format not
Quick), however since then when selecting the 'Mass Storage' option
when connecting the USB cable, it reports that it cannot read the
drive and needs to be formatted. Normally you would think this would
be a HDD problem, however I can transfer music with no problems using
the Music Manager, as well as being able to drop files on it via
Bluetooth, however no dice when it comes to mounting the drive on the
desktop as Mass Storage.
FYI - I tired it on a PC (in case) and it also reported the drive as
not being formatted there as well.
I am going to get it looked at via the local Nokia specialist, who
will upate the firmware, but what is weird, was that it was working
this morning! And also, did the format as well! I don't really want
to do a full factory reset, but we shall see. I will update you as I go.
Cannot find anyone else online who has had this issue!
I’ve been following your blog and commenting for a while now and I
have finally hit upon a set of problems that I can find no resolution
for and am hoping that the community of readers can help with!
1. No media, pictures/videos/tracks/sound clips show up in the Gallery
option anymore. Even though I can see the pictures/videos/tracks/sound
clips using the File Manager and they have all been stored in the
2. Every time I turn the phone off and turn it back on, I get a
message saying that it was “Unable to complete installation from hard
drive. To install remaining applications please use the Application
Manager.” Now in the App. Mngr. the only program is the Nokia Life
Blog that I have installed and uninstalled but the installation file
remains and I cannot delete it.
3. Sending an SMS is a painful process. It take close to 3 minutes for
the phone to be usable after you press the send button.
4. The Contacts application randomly exits and restarts.
It, like Windows XP (thankfully I use a Powerbook at work!), needs to
be rebooted once a day for best effect.
Any and all suggestions would be welcome!
I am thinking of buying either N71 or N-91-5.Not so sure.Any idea what difference does absence of WCDMA makes.In case of WLAN I feel we cannot internet in WiFi mode.
What do you think is a good choice between N71 or N80 or N91-5.Please mail maheshmakhija@rediffmail,com
hello all expert!
I'd like to know if nokia N91 is good to buy. Does it have any problem so far? Is the software working properly?
I've always used Nokia but I see the design of Samsung D820 and I think it looks cool and the price is much cheaper in Thailand.
Can anyone tell me which one is best to buy between N91 and Samsung D820 and which is the best between N series?
Thank you very much
hello mahesh, nokia invented only two edition and third one is invented by me. i m kidding,sorry its my mistake i thought there is three edition, i was wrong. u r asking me about the price, n91-1 is at 29,650 rs in india and n91-5 is at 27,500 rs cost. i m using n91-5, this edition is also having hanging problem twicely in a day. which one u r using and do u have that problem? any idea about this problem. thanks.
Went to Nokia centre at Woodland, I guess as usual, they just upgrade the firmware to give me an answer that they do something....
Moreover, battery life is not as good as claim by review in the net
Ie. 4 hours of music / some calls / some messages over 3 days = recharge? Or whatever.
The nokia website says 12.5 hours of music playback, im guessing this is without much other use of the phone during this period. Even without much use is 12.5 hours an accurate representation?
just my luck to have this phone.
1) Phone auto-reboot for no reason
2) After taking picture, it did not save into the hardisk n cannot find the file.... this is similar to the case of Nokia 6680 where image cannot save in its memory card
3) For no reason, phone power down itself
4) Slow, very slow.... Wonder why Symbian 9 for this phone is so slow..
5) Music organiser is lousy, very lousy and not user friendly
My hard earn $ just to buy a phone with a bug...
hi everyone, please help, does anybody know which video format should I convert my video file to play it in my N91? Or which software can convert my avi video so that my N91 can play it. Please help
The only difference between the 2 Nokia N 91's i.e N 91-1 and N 91-5 is the absence of WLAN & WCDMA in the N 91-5.I hope 3G is available in N 91-5.
As per your post in GSMarena you have stated there are 3 version of N-91's.Can you elaborate on the third N-91.
I am a GSM Mobile user and I feel the absence of WCDMA will be irrelevant to GSM system.Please correct me.
Any Idea what is the Best Buy Price you can get the N 91-1 and N 91-5.
Please do let me know.
hello shakeel, much more difference between n91-1and n91-5, in connectivity dept. n91-5 dosent support wlan and wifi. instead of that n91-1 sopport well, but from my point of view n91-5 is much faster than n91-1,the firmware is bit improved in latest edition,thats why its going faster and good,i bought n91-5 before couple of days, but piece is hanged twicely but as compare to n91-5 this is negleseble.what u say?.
has the stability and various things improved since the firmware upgrade you had?
is it still slow when going through Menus etc?
im getting my update with new firmware tomorrow :-)
Regrading "what N91 do you have"
I have the N91-1. WCDMA one , blueish chrome color, bought it with 1.00.28 now have 1.10.30 sw (and love it!). Bought it retail
this can't be 3G coz it doesn't have a camera up front so the person you're talking to can't see you.
just got N91 ..have treo 650..nokia 9300i..nokia 8800..hp6515pda..nokia 8910i and 6310i all work fine...N91 DAM GOOD
i work for o2 and no it doesnt come in any different colours.
hope the firmware solves the issue for it. personally i wouldnt go for this phone as there is several complaints about the symbian operating system compatibility with the n91.
To anyone from 02, can you help me?
do the Nokia N91 come in ANY different colours other than the Silver one?
i have a 2nd Replacement N91 arriving tomorrow, i got sick of the freezing and having to reboot the thing! im gonna get the Firmware upgraded straight away..
going to a Service Centre in Northamptonshire, they have Version 1.10 to put onto it for me... its apparently more stable and stops all this crap completely
I hit the *#0000# on my N91-5 and got
1.10.30 as the version number. Could it be that the N91-1 went out first with the older SW 1.00.28 and the N91-5 has the later sw? It seems all people have to do is get the latest 1.10 software for their N91-1 like some people have already done.
