Problems Installing SDK
Wednesday 14th of July 2010
I'm simply trying to download the SDK for rooting/unrooting purposes, not to develop apps with Eclipse, etc. I've downloaded the USB drivers package in the SDK, but when I right click 'My Computer,' go to 'Properties' and go to Hardware, etc, etc, I do not get a yellow exclamation or any other icon next to my phone. Yes, USB Debugging is enabled. So, without the SDK, I cannot download Amon's Recovery Image, etc.If it helps, I followed all the steps listed here:How To Root Your HTC Eristo downloading the SDK.I understand some 'technological-speak,' but not as much as many of the people here. I'd appreciate it if you used tiny words =D Any suggestions and help would be greatly appreciated.
Problems. Phone won't turn on after charging, and USB won't connect to computer.
Monday 12th of April 2010
I just received my Nexus One about a week ago. I only use a USB charger to charge my phone. I usually turn my phone off, put my computer on stand by at night before I go to sleep, and charge my phone that way. When I plug it in, the orange light lights up indicating it is charging, and all is good.When I wake up in the morning, there is no light. (Should there be a green light?) Then when I try turning on my phone, nothing happens. The only way to fix this is to do a battery pull, and put it right back in, then I can turn it on again. When it turns on, the battery is nearly fully charged.Is this normal? Does this have something to do with the USB charger? Or is it a defective battery?Another problem: Sometimes when I connect to the USB, I can't mount. When I click mount, it shows "Turn Off USB Storage" for a second, and then drops. It then says, "Preparing SD card.." and goes back to where it was before. This happened before, but I fixed it by installing new drivers for the Nexus One.
Having Trouble Copying Files to Galaxy Nexus From Computer Via USB - Page 7

I figured out that my drivers were not saved in the correct location. Here's what I did.1. Download the driver from the Samsung website.2. Place the driver file in the following location Computer\D:\drivers\Audio\W7-64When I placed the driver in that location, the driver downloaded successfully. I then tried copying over some pictures and it happened literally instantaneously. Hope this works for others as well as it did me!The D drive for me is my DVD player, I am assuming that you installed it on the main OS drive, C:? Also are you creating the folder driversAudioW7-64 or is that a directory that is already present on the system. Thanks
Support: Samsung Galaxy Note // MTP driver error + continuous USB disconnection
Monday 20th of February 2012
Hi,I got a Samsung Galaxy Note yesterday and have had a lot of problems while connecting it to my PC. Here are the observations:-- Kies (188.8.131.5214_18) is installed on the PC.-- after connecting the phone to the PC, it throws up the usual MTP error and the USB connectivity too keeps bouncing. -- this is where I referenced Hawker's suggestion (Tips n Tricks thread.). -- now the interesting thing is that after uninstalling kies and the samsung USB drivers (and rebooting the PC), the same problem persists (that is, phone does not get detected properly and keeps bouncing (after rebooting and re-installing kies).-- in addition to this, there is another problem. If I connect the phone in USB mode, then also the phone-detection keeps bouncing. The phone gets recognized every 20-25 seconds and I can see it for about 5 seconds before it gets disconnected.Please help me out..thanks,a
USB problems with Froyo
Tuesday 24th of May 2011
I just got a new Fascinate and it's running Froyo. I'm trying to connect via USB and I'm having trouble. Windows XP-64 and Vista 32-bit both give me an Unknown Device error and Ubuntu doesn't even show the phone with lsusb. I've tried installing the Samsung USB drivers a few times and it doesn't seem to help. I do get power and Windows recognizes there is a device there but it doesn't find drivers. Any ideas?

I've tried multiple versions of the driver but to no avail. I'm running on: -Windows XP Professional SP3-Kies 2.5.3-Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (GT-P3100)-Android 4.1.2 Anyone can help with this?

If I type adb shell and Hboot usb plug is in blue - it says daemon not running, starting it now on port 5037. Daemon started successfully - error device not found.If I try and run revolutionary it says waiting for device.Frankly I havent a clue what I am doing - but have been fiddling around with this for a couple of days and its doing my nut My HTC is PVT4Hboot 0.93.001Android 2.2.2Hope some kind soul can point me in right direction Thanks.
where did my usb connectivity go?
Monday 07th of October 2013
This is insurrection. Connected my mums lenovo with vista to my galaxy s3 for weeks. No problem. Two days ago, I want to copy some really important files from phone to usb....now it's problematic. Either it hangs, shows foe a bit then unplugs (in explorer. It shows connected on the phone)or just isn't read by explorwr. I mean, i've always got the thisnthat error message for installing blah drivers, but it never stopped it being read as mass usb storage before!! Incidentally the thing I'm doing is trying to find linux isos that I can live usb boot into my laptop and backup some files. Bout 4 distros haven't workd. Why can't anything ever be simple? Is it just me or do windoze/apple lend themselves more to pointnclick peace of mind than linux/android? Even foe stuff that shd at most be teething problems-ever notice how mundane maintenance tasks in linux require terminal amouns of terminal time? Just a thought. I'm at my wit's end, and feeling very put upon.
L70 PC USB problems
Wednesday 08th of October 2014
I went to the LG site and downloaded the USB drivers for the phone and installed them. Then I connect the phone and did see it show up in Windows explore right under the hard drive. Seemed like it would be working but then the phone installed some driver and killed the whole thing. Whatever the phone installed I am sure is where the problem is. I do know the drivers are saved in Windows/system32/drivers and as long as it is there the computer will continue to try and install them. The solution would most likely be to remove the driver file from that folder. Not knowing exactly what the file is called I am unable to do this. Simply going to device manager and uninstalling the driver does not remove the file from the directory above. If some sort of uninstaller was available I would use that to completely remove any entry that exists on the computer from the phones install of software. Would also remove all that the USB driver from LG installed and start over. This time not allowing the phone to install anything. The connection obviously worked from installing the drivers from the LG s
