so I'm trying to test apps on my Motorola Droid Razr so that I can test with audio and video playback. I'm running Windows XP (woot), and the problem is that when I connect my phone with USB Debugging enabled, the computer doesn't recognize it even though it was just connected as a media device with USB Debugging turned off. I thought I downloaded the correct USB driver because it worked before without USB Debugging.

I thought that the computer could automatically find the new hardware because i had just downloaded it, however this leads me to my next problem: whenever I connect my phone to the computer it kills the computer's internet...weird right? I've tried turning tethering, wifi, bluetooth, you-name-it on/off and it still does that. Any thoughts??

Appreciate the help Peter M.

Connect your device in debug mode; and on your PC, go to Control Panel -> Add New Hardware to check if the ADB drivers for your device have been installed correctly / properly (if not, the device will show up in the list). If not, there is your issue. –  SamSPICA Feb 13 '13 at 9:41

Endless hours were spent trying to connect my Motorola Razr to my computer. This finally worked:

Go to Google Playstore on the phone. Download Motorola PIM (all upper case).

If you have an extended battery case/charger on the phone, remove the phone and insert the USB cable into the port on the top of the phone.

Or

Download “AirDroid” and connect wirelessly.
