Android: USB Connection driver on Windows 7 64bit

by peterdk on April 14th, 2010

I wanted to use my G1 to debug my application. Somehow the offical USB Drivers for android devices do not install on windows 7 64 bit.

The solution for this problem was:

  1. Install PDANet: It installs the drivers correctly.
  2. (Optional) Go to device manager and update the driver of the android device: select the driver from the offical usb driver folder.

From → Android

    I was trying to install pdanet on my laptop and it didn’t work. It kept crashing at the driver part. MyTouch 3g fender edition. Windows 7 64bit.

    Thanks! I’ve been screwing around for a while trying to load the various drivers for my new Win 7 machine. Having the ADB driver lets me use MyPhoneExplorer so that I can get screenshots without rooting my phone.

    After a couple of days loading and unloading and rebooting, this was a relief. I didn’t even need to fully install PDANet on my desktop box, just the drivers.

    Cheers!
