PC Not Recognizing Android Phone

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Pretty much as the title says. My phone arrived in the mail today and I'm trying to set it up; however, my PC won't recognized my phone. I already tried pretty much every method I can find besides changing cables. I have done driver re-installs, factory resets, and every little tip I found from googling. Any help would be appreciated.

The phone's an LG Nitro HD, in case that matters.

Is it detected at all. Does Windows show drivers couldnt be installed or anything when connected? Have you tried installed the drivers on another pc to see if it may be the phone?

Why do you require a pc connection? If you're trying to transfer files, try the Airdroid app.

I got access to another cable and tried it. It turned out the cable that came with my phone was power only. rolleyes.gif Thanks for replies though.

Good to see your problem has been sorted out though I would suggest going to XDA for this. Im not saying OCN isnt good for this stuff but XDA just better biggrin.gif
