Have you tried connecting it? Most phones when connected show up as a storage device. If it's software you're after here's two: Gnokii & Kmobiletools.

when you connected the cable to the phone and to the PC, did you choose "Mass Storage mode" form N72?

Hi, There is no need of selecting mass storage mode in nokia n72(there ain't nythin like that)...usually i get it connected automatically in windows xp.... I have a 'nokia phone browser' folder in 'MyComputer' of windows xp which i think got installed with the nokia pc suite....i just hv to open it to see the contents....
