Soft bricked this phone when installing CWM. Now i'm trying to flash with odin, but my computer doesn't recognise it. I keep getting this msg when I plug it in when it's in DL mode:

I'm running windows 8.1 and already been playing around with several drivers, tried to force install some, but no luck either. Does anyone have a solution for this? I saw some people had problems with win8, and others didn't, been looking for something for 2 hours now, would be nice if someone could help out. Thanks!

Windows 8.1 is the culprit dude. win 8 and 8.1 are different. My Gio works with windows 8 but it shows exactly same error MSG on win 8.1

Heh, that really sucks. So weird though. I got no problem with other Samsung devices in DL mode and I thought they all used a similar protocol.

On my way to an internet cafe I guess, hope they don't get mad.
