Default Problem with PC

my n5 was fine before my pc was connected to internet .... but when it did, it updated th drivers and now i can't access my files in either MTP or PTP mode ....

i did uninstall n5's drivers from device manager and then it didn't even recognize the device .... o_O (not even in add a device)
btw i'm using win 8.1

ps. i did try using another port and cable

i had same problems on win 8.1

the problem is due to mtp windows drivers,
the problem is that windows will install his generic drivers and will override nexus 5 drivers installation

i solved by

1. uninstall all adb intefarces (for example, on acer, I had 2 acer adb interface and another adb bootloader interface)

2. deleting all android_winusb related folders from

Quote:
C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository
or everytime Windows will install them instead of the right ones


then I installed google usb drivers and it worked.
