    Well, sir(what a screen name), you ARE dealind with a pieace of Microsoft software which has proven itself timelessly unpredictable, unreliable, as well as self contradicitng. Who could guess why it works for someone and not someone else... you do know that your copy of Windows might hyave a different build number than others? This has been true since... foever really. They didn't put the build number in anything until 95 and NT.

    Honestly, please dont bring any fanboyism into this forum, it does no one good. This isnt a windows problem, so much as an issue with the google driver itself.

    Trust me, I've already looked at it and fixed it. Don't blame the OS.

    Apologies... didn't mean it like that. Honestly, the only thing that came to mind was that individual Windows kernel revisions might allow it and others not... to my understanding, the Google driver is identical in all cases. Perhaps there's more than one driver revision that ships with Win 7, and some who get the early ones get unlucky, and others don't? Now that its clear I really would like to figure out WHY this manifests for some and not others.... what do you think does it?

    Its a device ID issue. The PID on the original sholes was 22B8 PID 41DB. For some reasons, some of the Droids Device IDs are 22B8 PID 41E0. Or at least that's the one that I had. That difference is what causes the driver to not recognize the phone in general. By changing the last 2 numbers on the PID, the OS will recognize and match the driver, but the driver is also not signed by google, so no matter what you have to force install it.

    Hope that explanation helps. My apologies on the fanboyism comment. If you have anymore questions, I'll be happy to answer.

    Huh... that is interesting... those numbers are only 5 away. Oh, and no problem. You we're just looking out for the good of the forum. It was more warranted than you know... for I am... a Linux user. Regardless, apology accepted, and 5 away is an odd hex leap. The binary for those would be 0010001010111000(22B8) 010000011101(41DB) and 0100000111100000(41E0). That's interesting... they both have the same bit parity... the same number of 1's... just a curiosity I suppose though. It could mean something and we'd never know. It's amazing that this post is still on topic.

    I have yet to come up with an issue, and have started testing custom apps on my phone through win7 development.

    Erron, can you check the device ID of your phone in device manager?

    I am having a similar issue and would like some help if anyone knows.

    Running Win7 Ultimate, which finds the appropriate USB device driver no problem.

    However, from what I can tell the Android Debug Bridge driver included in the SDK just doesn't work for the Droid in Win7. So when I run ddms.bat, I get "Error Loading Preferences".

    Is there something obvious that I am overlooking? Thanks.

    Please read my earlier post, as I specifically answer your question. If you change the PID in the inf file on the SDK/ADB driver, it will recognize the droid and work just fine. The driver still isnt signed, but it should work just fine.
