Default Win XP 64 bit USB driver?

My PC has never been able to connect via adb, and after weeks of searching around, reinstalling drivers 99 times etc, I finally gave up. That was months ago.

Today I found my Nexus One wasn't able to connect either (yes, new drivers), I knew it was something with Windows. I am using Windows XP 64 bit and I found this:

Does adb not work on windows xp 64? I followed the directions and it didnt work.

no. But there is an unofficial driver for Vista x64 which works on XP x64 too. Read here.

Eureka! No wonder!!!

Unfortunately, the "fixed" file is extremely old, so it won't work for my G1, nor especially for the Nexus One.

Has anyone out there been able to use adb with ANY Android device on Windows XP 64 bit?

No. I used to use Windows XP 64-bit. You need to upgrade to a new operating system, trust me.

Edit: The one guy who says the drivers work on xp-64 is incorrect or simply lying. I wasted a lot of time thanks to that jackass post.

THANK YOU

Finally, someone else in the same boat! People kept telling me to reinstall drivers a billion times. Now I know it's true. Thanks!

Windows 7 64 =/= Windows XP 64

Also just found this:

I think this has something to do with 64-bit Windows not being supported by the drivers.

k0z you are incorrect. I just looked at my usb_driver folder included with the android sdk, it shows the files: androidwinusba64.cat, and a folder named amd64 for 64 bit installations, along with an i386 folder and androidwinusb86.cat for 32 bit installations.

Just because there is a folder and some files for it, doesn't mean it works.

That's why I'm asking if there's anyone who has *actually used* adb on Windows XP 64 bit.

actually, thats exactly what it means. the androidwinusb64.cat is the catalog for windows 64 bit.

EDIT: Just follow this guide, but use the latest adb drivers not the one provided in the link: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=502010

Latest drivers are found here: http://djdoprkngutub.cloudfront.net/usb_driver.zip

While I'm sure a number of attempts have been made, and it's even possible that there are successful drivers out there now, I find this highly unlikely and I know that I personally wasted too much time trying to get this to work on my XP-64 machine.

There's really no support any more for Windows XP-64, in regards to Android or anything else as far as I can tell. Vista sucked, but it's time for you to make the jump to 7 I think

I found these files as well, none of them ever worked. Does this one work? Have you used it? Furthermore, it doesn't look like any of these indicate that they are for Windows XP at all.
