    Pretty sure EASUS supports compression. Look under Backup Options

    Here's my approach for what we try next (this is pretty much it before i think best giving up). More detail on these steps below
    1. We'll first uninstall any programs you might have from Nokia (e.g. you still have Nokia Ovi installed?)
    2, Then we’ll uninstall devices (and their drivers) still found in Device Manager for: all the WPD (Windows Portable) devices and anything else from Nokia
    3. Then you download, reinstall the latest Nokia Ovi and finally try connecting your Nokia again

    Again, I THINK is OK to uninstall all these devices. But I can’t guarantee. So choose to proceed at your own risk

    First, Check Ctl Panel->Programs and Features Do you have any Nokia software installed? Also check if more then one Nokia item (just as we found Samsung Kies also had multiple items under Programs/features)

    Now to Device Manager. First, some notes on using DevManView to help uninstall. DevManView can uninstall one or more selected devices at a time
    > You simply select the device(s) you want to uninstall then File->Uninstall Selected Devices
    > To select more then one entry use Ctrl-Left Click to select or de-select a device

    Open DevManView. Click on the column header DeviceTypeCode to sort by Type. Scroll to select and uninstall (you can select one or more at a time as convenient for you. just uninstall them all by the time you;re done)
    > All devices with DeviceTypeCode = WPD
    > All devices with DeviceTypeCode = Wireless Communication. (these are also all Nokia devices. Not to worry. Your other wireless devices don’t use this same type code)
    > Also look for typecode = either Ports or Modem. Look for any device name with Nokia in its name. Uninstall it

    That should clean up all left behind. Try installing latest version of Ovi and try your Nokia phone again. g;luck

    Well, it still doesn't work. Yes, I am giving up now but I have one more question:
    Can I repair my windows installation instead of doing a clean install? I read that you can do that in the PCWorld magazine.

    Try the repair install. Post back to let us know if it helped

    I know this is a bit too late, but I was frustrated by this issue and found this solution to work perfectly without having to reboot.

    open REGEDIT >> go to HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{EEC5AD98-8080-425f-922A-DABF3DE3F69A} and note that if there is an UpperFilter, KLFLTDEV

    is yes, delete the UpperFilter key entirely and it should work.

    seems that kaspersky does this. anyways, I finally found the solution in other forum and thought sharing might help someone.

    I have a solution that I found recently:
    Run this command:
    net localgroup Administrators local service /add
    And... fixed :)

    Your a genius, I have searched online for weeks trying to find a solution to this problem, I ran the command you suggested, then went to the top of the tree in device manager, right clicked and then clicked "scan for hardware changes" and the 4 drives on my card reader appeared. Then I plugged in my Nikon camera which also didn't work previously and voilà, it worked also. Thank you so much.
