I did something to my Nexus 7 and need to transfer files via USB in recovery so I can reinstall my Android OS.
Unfortunately every time I plug it into the USB I get an error. In Device Manager I see my Nexus as "Unknown USB Device. Device Descriptor Request Failed." I try to manually install the drivers but they do not work.
I have searched the web and it seems like a compatibility issue between my newer USB 3 ports and the USB 2 standard of the Nexus 7. No matter how I try I can not get it working with the PC.
I have tried using a Kingwin USB hub and connecting the Nexus 7 through there without luck. I tried connecting to other Windows 10 machines (all ASUS) and have gotten the same error.
I tried entering ADB mode without luck. I tried getting the device to read a USB stick via OTG without success.
I can't find a Windows 7 machine to try and connect it to. I think that would work but I don't have one.
Is there a solution for this?
