  1. here's the thing the problem is with the phone itself it won't show up as an android device it shows up as unrecognized usb device

  2. It worked for me at last!!!
    Thank you very much. I saw a lot of videos to fix this. But this was the easiest one. Thanks!!

  3. people, before you can go deeper into technical issues, try first using a different usb cable. U know, i did the debugging things and nothing happened until when i changed the cable. try it and save your time.

  4. Below are the instructions If you can't keep up with the video

    1) Enable USB debugging: Go to phone settings -> About -> Tap build number repeatedly until developer menu is enabled. Go there and tick USB debugging.

    2) On your PC, go to your Device manager (when the Phone is plugged in and set to MTP), locate the phone or (Acer ADB Device), Right click on it -> Properties

    3) Go to the Driver tab

    4) Click Update Driver

    5) Click Browse my Computer for driver software

    6) Click Let my pick…

    7) Select USB Composite Device

    8) Finish up with the assistant

    With that you should be able to fix the issue where Windows computer will not read a Nexus or Android device. 

    This happened recently with a windows update that everyone probably downloaded and installed.  The update prevented some android phones from being recognized by a windows computer.

    Hope this helped anyone with this issue.
