Unhappy [Q] Bricked Asus Transformer TF 101 B60

Hi all first off I'm sorry if this has been posted before but I'm having a problem unbricking an Asus transformer tf101 B60, I'll start with what's going on or not for that matter. lol

1. Boot to recovery is CWM-Based Recovery v5.5.0.4 roach-tf101-r2
2. will not see sd card / backup-restore= -2014-04-05.02.52.56 / no files found
3. Choose a zip = e: can't open /sdcard/update.zip
4.PC windows 7 pro 64 bit will not see the tablet when plugged into usb getting unrecognized device,force driver still getting yellow ding=device cannot start

if I plug in the usb and turn on the tablet windows does not even see that and unit sits on logo screen. and other screen the cold lynx boot that hangs there.
So in short I'm hitting a brick wall, windows won't see it, it won't see the SD card in recovery mode.
I've read in these posts how to fix this problem and have all the software / firmware you name it, but they all say almost the same thing, windows needs to see the device in order for any of these fixes to work, and thus is my wall I'm hitting.

Any help to find a solution to this problem would be oh so thankful to you all and call you Tablet Gods, this was a tablet given to me as a paper weight and I thought if it boots it can be fixed?

Thanks for your time and God like tablet knowledge.
Cheers.

Install the APX drivers (Universal Naked Drivers) and use the tool "Easyflasher" to flash TWRP recovery (Forget CWM) both from this link

You might need to install the APX drivers manually using Device Manager

If you find that the PC still does not see the TF101, you might need a new cable

I booted the unit into recover mode and windows sees unknown device..Ok
Tried to install new naked driver and getting a splash saying not compatible with windows 64 bit, I tried this on a brand new windows 7 pro 32 bit laptop and got the same results. I do have a brand new usb cable for it thinking that the old one was faulty, tried adb again same thing no device found, are there any commands in terminal emulator that can force the driver on the usb port? I'm thinking that if windows sees an unknown device then at least it sees something there just not whats there? Am i wrong in that somehow it's lost the usb firmware connection? so the driver will not install and if forced does not make the connection to the device? So this is my results.

So I'm ready to put gun in mouth over this, my laptops going to divorce me over driver abuse and the tablet mocks me with the frozen Asus logo.

Again Thanks for all the advice and i'll keep slugging it out.As this unit is in perfect condition outside of the Bricked part

You don't need to boot it into recovery mode to start with, just install the drivers normally first with the TF101 connected and booted normally

It's always going to say it can't find the device if the driver isn't installed

Focus on getting that APX driver installed and working, once you have that installed, Im pretty sure it will see the device fine
