[Q] Windows 7 (64) Driver Issues
I'm absolutely pulling my hair out on this one. While I'm no tech wizard, I'm not a complete mong either.
So I bought a refurbed N7 first gen from eBay, works lovely, no issues, except I can't put files on it.
When I plug it into my PC, Windows picks it up and adds it to the device manager under Portable Devices as Nexus 7, all fine and dandy. The drivers it uses appear to be generic Microsoft MTP ones: 6.1.7600.16385 (21/06/2006). I can see the device under My Computer and browse the folders, but I cannot take anything off it or put anything on it. By that I mean I cannot drop and drop, I cannot copy and paste, it appears to treat it as some form of ROM, and dragging a file to the folder just gives me the stop-sign type cursor. No errors, no nothing, just cannot put anything on it.
If I enable USB Debugging in the developer menu, Windows 7 finds some more drivers but the problem is identical.
I downloaded the proper Google drivers from both the Asus website and from a website it won't let me link to, andiiod developers dot com or something.
I've gone about various ways of installing them but Windows doesn't acknowledge them and reverts to the generic driver as above.
I can force them on by using the 'install legacy drivers' wizard, and they appear under Android Phone in the device manager.
With a bit of fannying about, I re-enabled USB debugging and this time the wizard asked me for drivers, so I pointed to the downloaded Google drivers and it chose the Android Composite ADB Interface drivers.
Still no joy.
I'm so angry I want to throw it out the window, but I suspect this is a Windows/driver issue rather than the Nexus.
Can someone PLEASE fix this for me? I've spent 3 days trying to fix it and nothing has worked.
