Hmmm, I've only ever used the Google drivers from the SDK until this stupid ACER one appeared. Managed to get back to it now so it's all good. Perhaps download the Google driver and then point to it?

Yeah , I forgot , sorry about that . I managed to make it work by downloading this drivers " https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/re...er_windows.zip " . After i have extracted the driver i plugged my N5 to the PC, than I went to the Device Manager i right clicked the Acer ADB Interface and I have selected Update Drivers . After that I selected the folder where i have extracted the drivers , than i chose " Let me pick from a list ... " , I selected MTP USB Device and Voila , it works !

PS: You can also try to install the LG Driver " http://tool.xcdn.gdms.lge.com/dn/dow...=UW00120120425 "

Thanks For your help. It worked.
