Connecting the Lumia 2520 to a pc, anyone?

Just got a micro usb b cable for my 2520, however no pc connectivity with either Windows 7 or 8.1.  Anyone have luck doing this?

What do you mean by "no pc connectivity"? Did you install the desktop or windows store Windows Phone app?

Without that, it won't do anything other than charge when plugged in - Windows Phone doesn't have a "USB disk" mode.

I think they mean plug the tab  in to the computer to share files. If so check out the forums on wpcentral under L2520

Oh sheesh, yeah - that's the Nokia Windows 8.1 RT tablet. My bad.

 

No, that's a full computer, you don't "plug it in" to the USB on a desktop/pc like you would an iPad or Android tablet.

 

Use windows file sharing, Flash drives, or toss stuff up on skydrive.
