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:/...

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 ...

By looking at the inf file, you can find that it tells to use the WinUSB driver. So there is a better solution than disabling driver signature enforcement, you can use the tool Zadig (http://zadig.akeo.ie/). This tools create a self-signed inf for this specific device, using ephemeral keys, added to the trusted certificate store (for this only device / inf), ...

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.

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.

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 ...

.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.

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 found the solution myself: Windows 10 somehow does not want to install the driver, as it can not verify the manufacturer. So the driver from Sony Developer's site works just fine. After deactivating the Windows driver signature check everything works fine. To deactivate proceed like this: (taken from HERE) Press Win + X then U then Shift + R ...

Different ways of sharing interet connection from Windows to other devices Nowadays there is a lot of ways to share internet connection to other devices and each method has its pros and cons. Here is a breakdown of methods: Using Windows 10 Mobile Hotspot Feature: Newer editions of windows 10 (after 1607 anniversary update) have a built in mobile hotspot ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 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 ...

Joel, I've done this before, and I've had mixed results. Make sure you have Windows set to see hidden files and folders, then drag everything over. Your phone may refuse to remember the SD card-stored apps you have (as in, you've moved an app to run off the SD card), but it may also work. App settings, as far as I remember, seem to come over. I'd say it ...

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 %...

My method is based on the answer suggesting WebDAV. It could be replicated by an FTP, Samba or other networked file server. Essentially you start a WebDAV server on your android device, and mount it as a network drive. Your phone's IP must be visible to the computer you want to browse the files on. Generally this means you must be on the same local ...

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 https://stackoverflow.com/a/11851697/1427165 for more details.

If all you care about is the clipboard sharing, you might want to take a look at ClipSync. This app allows you to share your clipboard between multiple Android devices and your Windows PC: Copy on one device, and it appears in the clipboard of all others. At least that's what the app description says (all Windows I have are just for fresh air and light ...

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 something ...

It is always enabled on the Kindle Fire. You simply need to add the Fire's device ID to your android_usb.ini file so that the Google ADB drivers will find it. You can do this from the command line very easily with: echo 0x1949 >> "%USERPROFILE%\.android\adb_usb.ini Then restart adb adb kill-server adb start-server And you should be good to go. If ...

This is really a continuation of @Zuul's answer, to cover the DNS settings in Android 4.0+ (ICS), which is a little harder to find IMO. AFAIK Zuul's answer covers Android <2.3 settings. From the Android side (Android 4.0+ ICS) Settings WiFi (click on word "WiFi", not ON/OFF switch) Press and hold (long tap) your wireless network until dialog pops up ...

Unfortunately, it's a big problem. Google apparently decided to go MTP only route since it does not require unmounting the storage from the Android side when you connect it to your computer. So: You cannot assign a drive letter to an MTP device. Here's my answer on superuser.com explaining why. There is a program named Alt Mounter that supposely solves this ...

Actually Windows Experience Feature is the answer! I had the same problem and could not install usb drivers for a MotoG on a win2012 Server, but when I installed Desktop Experience feature, all runs flawlessly, drivers auto-installed and all! BUT it is a little weird to find it... Go to: Server Manager -> Open Add Roles and Features Wizard -> Features -> ...
