Hi everyone,

This isn't really a question but rather a solution to what I had to look for, for a long time.

I have a Dell Laptop and for some reason I couldn't connect my Kindle Fire HD. So after Looking around (for a very long time) I found a way of fixing it.


In my case it would install all drivers except the MTP driver. It would just show me MTP with a yellow triangle and an exclamation mark inside.

Like so:

I did the following to fix it:

1. Open Device Manager

2. Right click "MTP" and press on "Properties"

The "MTP Properties" window should open.

3. Go to the driver tab and press "Update Driver".
