    I've installed the drivers for the Nexus S 4g which I downloaded from Samsung's site (Samsung_USB_Driver_for_Mobile_Phones_v1.5.14.0).

    Still, when I tether my phone to my Windows 8 laptop, I get "USB device not recognized". (When I plug into a Windows 7 laptop, no problem).

    I've googled and googled and read everything I can find but no resolution. In Control Panel / Device Manager, the device shows up as "Unknown Device".

    I know there are other ways to get content on the phone to the laptop and vice versus, but I would like to use a tethering app (that I can use on Windows 7 laptop) but I can't because the device is not reconigzed, even with what Samsung says is the correct drivers.

    Any ideas at all? I've exhausted everything I know to try or have read on forums.
