    Droid, ADB Drivers, and Windows 7

    Hey all. I've been developing with a G1 and a HTC Magic for many months on
    Windows 7 64bit + Eclipse and everything is great.

    When I plug my new Moto Droid up it tries to install some Motorola A855 drivers which it cannot find. Bummer.

    I tried getting on the motodev site and downloading the XP/Vista 64 bit A855 drivers (.msi package) but they won't install on windows 7. Any ideas on how to get the drivers installed and up and running?

    Try installing the drivers using the Compatibility Mode. Right click the install, goto properties, then click the Compatibility Tab, check the box that sais run in compatibility mode, and try either Vista SP1 or XP SP2 and see if that will let you install the drivers that way...if not then there may be something wrong with either your phone or the version of Windows 7 that you're using.

    if compatibility mode doesn't do the trick, you might be able to use this:
    InstEd It! - InstEd - Make packaging more productive

    With this utility, you can change some of the validation rules to ignore the OS version restriction. I've had multiple occasions on a Win2k8 server x64 where the A855 drivers cannot be found...

    It might be a driver signing issue perhaps? IF it is, you CAN get it working by pressing F8 and disabling driver signage limitations. I've had to only ever do this for one thing... the drivers for the PS3 controller. The worst part was it had to be done each boot up. Ugh... and on an a laptop with 11 OSes... you forget to do it really easily, ESPECIALLY when you intend to do it...

    Is this the driver you tried to use? USB and PC Charging Drivers - Motorola USA

    That is the one I am using on Windows 7 for ADB it works just fine.

    Let me know if that works for you.

    There's actually an issue with the droid sdk drivers with win7 x64. In the INF, you'll have to change the device ID for the Droid to whatever it actually comes up with in device manager, otherwise you'll have to force install the drivers. There's a line under Moto Sholes in the INF that says ADB singular driver, change the device ID there for the droid and it should read the drive just fine.

    Randomocity,
    Could this be why certain people are having troubles with their mounts on USB. The symptom is this:
    Plug in Droid
    windows "installs Drivers"
    Go to droid, USB Connect... Mount...

    A couple of seconds later the USB will dis-mount.

    Any help?

    I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit and I just setup Eclipse a few days ago and didn't have to do this. Everything's working great when I plug my phone in.

    Billy, this is specifically for the adb drivers, not the standard mounting drivers. If you're having your phone continually DC after mounting, I'd either do a hard reset and see if that fixes it or return your phone.
