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>...

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), ...

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.

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 ...

There are a lot of different ways to get files to/from computer to Android device. Here I would like to share three methods frequently used: 1. Transfer Files Using USB Cable. 2. Wireless Transfer Using Cloud Storage. 3. Transfer Files via WiFi or Mobile Networks. The following is the detailed intro of these three ways. Transfer Files Using USB Cable ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

Your phone is showing you the total amount of storage inside your device. This includes a bunch of partitions containing the operating system, radio image, preloaded apps, bootloader, recovery, etc. These partitions are read-only, and many aren't even accessible within the Android OS, so they aren't exposed when connected to Windows—there wouldn't be any ...

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 ...

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 -> ...

You (or someone else) probably accidentally click this banner on the main screen. And "Accept" the offer. (Note: this dialog may also pop-up on reboot) - OR - Avast pushed the installation silently (which I still doubt since it didn't happen on my case). Avast gets the Google accounts saved on the Chrome, and it's possible for them to offer ...

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/...

I'm running Windows 10 and I found that when launching the Android emulator, it would disable my Dolby audio enhancements. I simply had to turn it back on in the Sound properties.

Just pulling all files via adb to a WIndows computer has multiple problems: Android/Linux allows multiple files in one directory that just differ in their case. The file-system on Linux allow characters in file- and directory names that are disallowed on Windows Some file-names are completely disallowed on Windows which are just regular file-names on Linux/...

Got the same issue, and fixed it by updating the driver from the ASUS usb_driver_r06_windows.zip driver pack. The issue is that this driver does not report properly the supported devices (at least mine were not listed) My device is reported as a PID 4EE2 which is not part of the supported devices. I had to add the following lines in the android_winusb.inf ...

This is a bug in the current implementation. Although adb has the -a flag, it doesn't forward it to the daemon when it launches it, so the daemon still only listens on localhost. Until this is fixed, launching the daemon in the foreground seems to be the only solution. Another improvement would be to keep the command server on localhost, but to allow adb ...

Barring mounting the share as a filesystem on a rooted device, I don't believe this is possible without a third-party app. You can use ES File Explorer to connect to the remote directory. There is a detailed how-to on the XDA Developers forum, which also includes the steps for sharing the directories from various versions of windows. Since you already have ...

If you are using Windows, USB should be your best bet. But several distros of Linux doesn't support MTP protocol (ICS and above) and hence, you can't mount your Android to those computers. There are a number of methods which you can use for wireless file transfers. My favorites: Install Airdroid- This is a very simple app which converts your device into a ...

While playing around with the INF files, I found that the one supplied by Sony actually does work, you only need to "force" Windows to use it for your device. I am not sure if that has anything to do with the unsigned nature of the driver or that Windows cannot verify that the driver is compatible (see below), but it simply doesn't seem to accept the driver ...

Solved the problem by installing Motorola Device Manager and re-plugging the phone. I felt so silly after finding that link.

I don't know about Windows, but on Ubuntu Linux this is easily scripted using the photo management app Digikam. Digikam can be configured to recognize the device and automatically download the pictures. You just plug in the phone and it starts automatically, no need to do anything with the computer or the phone.
