I am trying to unlock my device and keep having the problem of it not being recognized in fastboot.

I have the latest drivers from the android SDK (4.0), and have trying reinstalling them. It appears to mount fine, and all of the adb commands work. However, when I try fastboot devices, it returns nothing. fastboot oem unlock only gives a "waiting for device".

Any ideas?
Thanks

Device needs to be in the fastboot screen of the bootloader...

While I feel really stupid for somehow missing that fact in dozens of threads, it doesn't seem to fix the problem. I now have it in fastboot and at the top is says "FASTBOOT USB". Windows recognizes the device when its plugged in, but still no luck with devices.

Nevermind, I figured it out. It downloaded fastboot from another source. I am guessing that I was somehow missing a file. Thanks though.
