So I followed the steps outlined in the thread below:
The problem is that when I go into Device manager - Android device isn't even listed so I can't uninstall the drivers to begin with. It's not even listed under the other devices tab.
Funny that when I plug in my Nexus 4 windows explorer sees the phone and I'm able to access the internal memory, same with my other android devices but not the Nexus 5.
You would think just because the laptop is able to see the Nexus 4 the same would apply for the Nexus 5, however I can't access the memory on the N5 so I can transfer my files across to it.
Any suggestions as to how I can get my laptop to see my Nexus 5 and play nice?
Thanks in advance for your help.
