My Kindle when I started showed up under portable devices in the device manager. I uninstalled the driver and have tried both the Kindle drivers from extras/amazon as well as google usb drivers. (I also even tried changing the google driver .inf file to include code for a Kindle).
This is where my problems seems to be unique to the countless thread posts I have read through. The drivers for both methods result in the driver showing "Android ADB Interface" without the Composite keyword. I have manually changed the driver by selecting to locate it myself. The only three options read "Android ADB Interface" each. I uncheck the box for "Show compatible hardware" and two more options appear:
"Android Composite ADB Interface Version: 1.3.1000.0 [12/3/2012]"
"Android Composite ADB Interface Version: 22.214.171.124 [8/20/2012]"
I have tried both. ADB devices from the cmd prompt still list zero devices.
If I update the driver to let Windows search for it in the amazon or google locations, it always gets (updated?) changed to just "Android ADB Interface".
This is driving me crazy. Any suggestions? I would really appreciate it or any links I can try reading.
Thanks in advance.
