    Sorry if this is slightly off-topic. I am about to be driven up the walls here. I am trying to install PDANet on my Vista 32-Bit PC. It asks to install driver for certain device. I choose Motorola, but I get an "USB Driver Installation Failed, err=0x20" error message. Over and over and over and over. Please tell me someone here has experienced this. I really would appreciate the help, thanks!

    Try an older version of the desktop app maybe?
    Download PdaNet
    Or, if you are rooted try this instead. It's basically the same but without the need to install a desktop app.
    android-wired-tether - Project Hosting on Google Code

    Also, is it ever prompting you with the red box that says install drivers anyway or something like that? Or does it crash before then?

    Have you turned on USB debugging on your phone? If you're getting the error before even plugging in the phone, ignore this post.

    I am getting that prompt and select Yes. Install seems to move along normally, but the progress bar hangs and install fails. I will try the above files and let you know how it goes. Thanks.

    Yup, it's on.

    The wired-tether app works great! Downloading the older build of PDANet as well, just for kicks. My main goal through all of this was to hook up my PS3 through PC with PDANet or EasyTether, but neither of the desktop apps will finish installing.

    Take a look at this thread, especially the link to the moto drivers. http://forum.droid-life.com/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=914

    Just?

    I heard that anything that comes after the word "JUST" is probably a bad idea.
    And running at ROOT is a bad idea... sort of like juggle live chainsaws...

    I my be prepubescent and not qualified to pee in the woods, but I though this
    thread was about error #13 on some driver...
