hey guys
not really sure what the hell is wrong

i finished rooting an unlocking my pohne with WugFresh - and obviously doing the first driver steps means my drivers are functional.

when i connect my phone to my pc (win7) nothing comes up while its on MTP, first time i chose MTP it installed drivers but there is no popup window on my PC to choose an action, nor can i see the phones SD on my computer.
if i switch to camera mode (PTP) i instnatly get the Autoplay menu and can access two folders DCIM and Pictures.

i tried:
doing the initial installation (and uninstallation) of drivers in WUG a few times
turning MTP/PTP on off
turning usb debut on/off
plugging to another pc - WORKED INSTANTLY

so why wont my dumb PC be able to do this?

Try manually uninstalling the drivers from device manager and reboot both phone and computer. Connect in ptp then switch to mtp
