It's been a while since I was last on XDA Developers site. And once again I need help please!
I cannot install the correct USB drivers for the Xperia Z to my laptop using a USB cable?!
I can connect the USB cable, and the contents of the phone are displayed. However before flashing the current ROM, I could see two storage areas - Internal Memory and SD Card Memory. Now I only see a list of files/folders are root level. I don't think this has anything to do with my USB driver installation problem?
Either Windows 7 does not recognise the USB drivers or I am not using the correct drivers for the Xperia Z (C6603)?
The phone itself works fine.
I have searched this forum and the whole of XDA Developers site and found several solutions, but to no avail. I am on the verge of pulling my hair out (whatever hair I have left, that is)!
I followed several solutions found on XDA Developers.
1. I downloaded and installed the flashtool-drivers.exe, and in the process I selected the required Xperia Z and SO-02E drivers and successfully installed these, however the yellow exclamation mark is still displayed in Device Manager??
2. I also downloaded the Xperia Z drivers from http://developer.sonymobile.com/downloads/drivers/. Yet still Device Manager displays the yellow exclamation marks under Modems, next to Sony HS-USB Android Modem and under Ports, three entries C6603.
3. I cleaned the registry with CCleaner, but still the yellow exclamation marks are seen in Device Manager.
I don't know where to go from here. Am I doing something wrong? Have I missed something? Am I using the incorrect drivers?? Do I need to start again??
I have attached images of Device Manager, Failed USB installation and Flashtool driver installation.
Xperia Z (C6603)
Android version 4.2.2
Build: 10.3.A.0.423 (flashed using the flashtool)
HP Elitebook 6930p
Windows 7 64-bit
I need your help please!
