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.
