    Default Hardware ID Missing

    I just recently did a few updates for my Windows 7 laptop. Since then, my computer will not recognize my phone (look in local storage files on the device to copy pictures and video I took to my computer) UNLESS I turn off Android USB Debugging. Does anyone else have this problem and know a possible fix to this?

    Honestly, I've had that happen even on my Mac. USB Debugging has some voodoo in it, that's for sure.

    I am sure at some point, XDA will work their magic and find a solution for this.

    There is one notable solution, though.

    Install Linux.
