Do you have windows media player installed. I don't remember what windows you are running. It gets the drivers from there.

EDIT: I just tried that. MTP is very finicky about what files it will let you see or transfer. Copy the file to your ext_sdcard (the one you put into the slot). You need to look under /mnt/ext_sdcard to see it with your file manager. Take the card out and put it in a card reader in the PC.

Or abd shell, su, copy that file to save spot like /data/su, change the permission, exit out of adb shell then adb pull it.

Then your PC should have MTP drivers. Try opening wmp and then connect to see if it works.

Edit, you want MTP working. It is the only way to transfer files with your cable.

Back to database editing. I used my file manager to copy the db to sdcard. Then installed the free aSQLiteManager. That will let you edit it since it is not using root. Then copy back to right location. Be sure to set permissions to the same as the original file. My only problem is I run at 300 dpi and Play Store said that app was not compatible, so I installed manually. For other users it may show in Play Store.

Edit, nope not my dpi. You are going to have to get it on another device and copy it there.

Didn't work. Isn't there a way to install manually?

Try going to settings, storage and USB connectivity on the HD. Click on camera instead of MTP. Then try connecting again.

Edit, you can try searching the web for how to install MTP on windows. It is generic and has nothing to do with android or the HD.

I think I'm getting somewhere. I had to Uninstall the Unknown Device, and turn off the HD+ and turn it back on (all while still connected to the PC) to get what looks like something that works. I'm now showing a BNTV600 under Portable Devices (and Win7 gave me the options of what I want to do with this device when I plug it in - Sync etc). So now do I take the next step of enabling ADB on the HD+?

yes, but unplug first.

Hmm, I unplugged the device, enabled ADB, just for kicks cycled power on the HD+, made sure ADB was still enabled, and then plugged it back in via USB. No new devices showed up - it got ID'd immediately as an MTP device. I verified ADB is enabled.

Unplugged it, disabled and re-enabled ADB, plugged it back in. Still showing up as a MTP device. Funny, I couldn't get it to be a MTP device and now it won't un-be a MTP device!

MTP should always be there now that you have it installed, with or without adb enabled. Just keep playing with the cable and scanning for new hardware until devices show up. And sometimes it takes a minute or two for your PC to recognize them.
