Default USB detection on windows 8

Hi I want to root my galaxy nexus Verizon but my phone only charges on windows 8. It makes the connetion noise on and off on my PC and it does the same on other pcs and ports. What can I do to get my windows 8 pick up phone. I installed all current Samsung drivers too.

Open device manager and check what does it show when your Nexus is connected.

Also try installing these drivers:

Samsung Galaxy Nexus
(the best Android phone ever)
ROM: Dreams
Radio Baseband: I9250XXLJ1

Sony Xperia tablet Z (LTE):

Samsung jet:
My built CM7
