Appreciate your rely but still no luck.
I cant get past the ERROR 260 when the program is gathering information from PDA. And even after the install of zune 4.8 from that link Windows Mobile device center still doesnt connect to the phone.
Bear in mind Zune connects fine.
I did notice that when running both programs zune and device center in the background and when the utlitlty was at the stage ''gathering data from PD'' Windows mobile decive center application closed automatically.
