i think you're going to need to use adb to push the rom files into your SD card
i believe the naked drivers are for adb

this is the command you're gonna need to use to push the files into your prime
Code:
adb push [insert rom here minus the bracket] /mnt/sdcard/

hope this helps~

I deleted the external_sd folder with ES_fileexplorer, after that no app could recognize my usb_storrage.

Then I wanted to flash my galaxy note with Cyanogen again, but now CWM cant find the usb_storrage too.

I am also stuck @ CWM now :/

Hmm seems like I formated my sd_card via CWM and CWM coldunt find any files ofc...now it works again. But unluckly it still can not find external_sd

bro I was running the same CM9 and it screwed my Prime up like yours...CWM bootloop only...
my Prime was also not showing up when attached to the usb/computer...

after reading a bunch of very vague instructions and going through 5 or 6 different methods of trying to get it back I finally gave the following method a shot and it worked the first time (from the dev DiamondBack's thread)---

Code:
To recover your Prime (most likely) you need the following:
A working ADB setup (please google that if you don't have it, "tutorial setup adb" or something like that should do the trick)
The USB-Cable to connect the Prime to your PC
A few minutes time

Now do the following:
Make sure your Prime is in Recovery mode (CWM)

[CODE]Open a cmd line on your pc

Type: "adb shell"

You should see a "#" now

Once you have that "#", please type: dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p4 bs=100 count=1 and press [Enter]

Now type: dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p3 bs=16 count=1 and press [Enter]

Exit the shell and reboot your Prime via CWM

It should not reboot to CWM automatically now. It either boots your ROM or is stuck at the splash screen. If it is stuck, boot to recovery and install any ROM you want.
[/CODE]

this guy saved my panicked ass....thought my Prime was done...but these instructions brought it back...

I'm having the exact same issue, tried out CM9 and it now bootloops my prime into cwm. windows can't see the prime either when I connect it, so adb doesn't work, so when I type "adb shell" it comes back with "error: device not found"

before this, I was having issues with my tfp being recognized by windows. this is on 2 diff desktops (win7 and xp) and my laptop which is win7.

have you tried contacting Asus regarding this issue? I think I might try and RMA the unit and complain that it won't connect to the PC or charge directly from the wall plug.

yeah..it warns you like two or three times that unlocking the bootloader voids the warranty...


i know one of you has...but has everyone tried the method posted on the first page that saved the other guy?


when you're bootlooping, if you hold down the volume and power button for 5-10 seconds to get to recovery, does it automatically bootloop or does the text appear and give you the option to press volume up?
i was bootlooping and holding vol down and power for a long period of time, then manually going into recovery worked...
or does everything bootloop?..meaning can't even get into the rom itself
i'm asking because you mention cwm bootloop... if you try to force recovery by the above mentioned method (holding vol down and power during the bootloops until you get the option to go into recovery...) then just not hit anything and let it try to boot normally...

i know i'm not giving breakthrough advice, but hopefully some of this will help..

I thought I've seen a few posts where people have sent their TFP in for service even after they've unlocked it... it can't hurt to call and see what they say.

when I turn on my TFP it automatically finds CWM and boots right into it without me being able to press up to confirm. I think CM9 did this when I tried to boot directly from CM9 into recovery. so actually, I'm not bootlooping, I can get into CWM, but I can't do much else from there, not even turn off my TFP... I always have to wait for it to run out of power before it shuts off.

I called Asus, and you can send in your unlocked TFP for repair... but they won't say how much it would cost, even if it is a hardware issue, they will still charge you. freaking lame...
