After a couple of days of digging, I found the solution to this issue. I opened up Device Manager. My first problem is I was looking for Android Composite ADB Interface, which is what it usually is called. I started looking harder. When I noticed ACER Device. My machine is not an ACER, nor do I have any ACER devices attached, or so I thought. I expanded ...

What fixed it for me was clicking on the "Connected as a media device" up at the top left corner, de-selecting Media Device (MTP) and then checking Camera (PTP). This essentially made it show up as a different kind of USB device with different options and allowed the process to work perfectly.

.exe Files are Windows binaries (i.e. executable files/applications/programms) that can not be run natively on a Android system. I am sure the Play Store (or the alternatives of the Play Store) will have an equivalent app to the .exe file you are trying to run.

For BlueStacks App Player for Windows v 0.9.0.4049 and higher There is a shared folder between BlueStacks and Windows: BlueStacks: /sdcard/windows/BstSharedFolder (you may need to install a file explorer app such as "ES File Explorer" to access this folder) Windows: <BLUESTACKS_DATA>/UserData/SharedFolder (by default, <BLUESTACKS_DATA> is C:/...

I have exactly the same device as you, down to the Android version and build number. I discovered that it was necessary to change my USB transfer mode. You can do this on the Nexus 7 by going to Settings > Storage, clicking on the strange menu icon in the top right hand corner and selecting "USB computer connection". I then changed the storage mode to "...

The problem is that you're missing the adb recovery driver. You might consider trying Koush's universal USB driver installer -- it solved this very problem by installing the missing drivers.

I located a solution from this youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZNPO1gMcoA and thought I would share here since this was the first result when I began looking for a solution. The problem is that Windows does not detect the Bluetooth serial links automatically. You can manually point to the standard windows drivers by completing the following ...

Uninstall Kies and all drivers, then reboot. Download and install the appropriate drivers from this XDA post. Download and install Kies Mini from Samsung.com (Support at the top, then just select your phone model and go to software). Connect your phone!

I had that on my old HTC Magic a couple of times, it is supposedly down to not properly doing the Eject Disk bit in Windows and Unmount drive bit on the phone before unplugging it. After it had annoyed me enough times by asking me to repair the disk every time, I unplugged the micro-SD card from my phone, put it in a USB SD card reader, plugged that ...

Back up your data, all of it, internal and external SD memory. Connect your phone to your PC choosing the Mass Storage option (first make it ask you before connect how to connect), then walk through all of your applications checking for any folder named cache or anything similar, then delete whatever is in it. If you came across any other kind of file that ...

You could turn on "USB Tethering", then run some media server like VLC carefully configured with RTSP streaming on your local server. Then open up the stock browser on android, type in your local ip (prefixed with rtsp:// protocol instead of http) of the pc followed by the port number as set in VLC or equivalent. The Android media player should launch if all ...

I think the answer here is "in all practicability, no." One hypothetical alternative would be USB host support, and to mount an external hard drive or thumb drive onto your phone. This would mean doing something like this, How To Mount External Hard Drive to Your XOOM. This seems impractical and potentially dangerous (who knows if that OTG cable might cause ...

I had the same problem with Kindle Fire Utility, and I actually figured this out. The install_drivers.bat replaces the driver, which is not what you want! You need both drivers in place, the regular Amazon Kindle one, and the ADB driver. To get it to work: Uninstall the Android ADB driver in Device Manager (right click to do this) In Device Manager, right ...

Try the 15-seconds ADB/drivers all-in-one installer. You could also install the Samsung drivers rather than conventional OnePlus drivers. I installed these drivers and I've had mine working since the upgrade. You could also try following this guide on how to set it up.

Okay I finally found something which helped me. The Media Feature Pack for Windows 10 N & KN (all editions) alias KB-3010081 is for the first version of Windows 10. But for the Windows 10 with the big update we had a few time ago, there is an update which supersedes the KB-3010081. This is the KB-3099229 : https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/...

For viewing the phone's screen from your PC you could use a solution from this question: How to capture video stream from Android phone screen and show it on laptop?. You might be able to get up to 30 FPS depending on the quality. A clever way to control the game externally, if you don't want to hold the phone, is to attach it to a gaming steering wheel :P ...

Is your card working? Can you put it back in your phone and access it? If yes, don't "fix" it.

You could check out this wake on LAN plugin for Tasker / Locale. (Haven't tried it - would be interested to hear how you get on if you give it a go)

I would try editing extras\google\usb_driver\android_winusb.inf in the Android SDK so that it recognizes your device. The file should have a section like this that you can extend: [Google.NTamd64] ; HTC Dream %SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0C01 %CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0C02&MI_01 %...

You can solve this issue either from the Android side or from the Windows side: From the Android side Tap your device "menu" button, and select "settings"; Tap "Wireless & networks"; Tap "Wi-Fi settings"; Tap your device "menu" to bring up extra options and select "advanced"; Tap "Use static IP"; Fill in your local network static IP details and dns ...

In theory, there is not a way to access your phone's memory card with a drive letter, because, as you said, Android now connects it as an MTP device, and not as a Mass Storage device. But, there are two solutions: Root phone and get a "Mass Storage" enabler application that will work on your phone. Without rooting phone: as long as both the computer are on ...

The easiest way to get this driver is from the samsung website. There is a link to a download that installs only the driver (none of the bloat). See http://stackoverflow.com/a/11851697/1427165 for more details.

Chor WaiChun mentioned this on a locked question you posted on StackOverflow: I've seen somewhere stated that this behaviour is because both android and linux run on same kernel, and same situation goes to developing android on mac. Both OS runs in very similar OS kernel with Android, that is why they don't need any drivers. These are just ...

For this to work seamlessly you would need an SMB server on your phone. There is such an app, available via this forum thread. It needs root, and it looks like results vary by device. At least one reason why root is required is that normal users aren't allowed to open ports below 1024, whilst by convention, SMB servers use ports 135-139. An alternative ...

No, you don't need to install the Android SDK. The SDK's drivers don't work for the Galaxy S, actually, at least not the last time I tried. You best bet is to download Samsung Kies and update the drivers through it, as per this answer to another question. You can get Kies most easily from Samsung UK here.

You can connect the device to the PC with a USB cable and access it via Explorer in the same way that you would a thumb drive. In addition, I like using Dropbox to sync files in a wireless fashion. I find this to be much easier and does not restrict movement of handset.
