I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Android phone not recognized on Lenovo X230

Part 1. How to Connect Android to PC in USB ModeStep 1: Connect your Android phone into computer using a USB cable. You can use the same cable that you use to charge it.Step 2: Tap the ?USB? option from the Notification Panel on your Android device, then select ?MTP? mode.Step 3: Wait while the driver is installed, then open the ?Computer/This PC?, you?ll find your Android device.The procedure above is a normal connection between Android device and PC. If there is anything abnormal during your operation, you can try the tips in part 4. Please note, there is still one more step before the transfer and recovery tool can recognize your device. Just follow the steps in part 2 and 3 to proceed. Part 2. Enable USB Debugging on Different Android OS VersionOnly when USB debugging is turned on, can Android phone be recognized by development tools. The primary function of this mode is to facilitate a connection between an Android device and a computer with Android SDK (Software Development Kit). Phones running on different versions of Android OS have different ways to enable USB debugging mode. Please check the Android version of your phone first: Settings > About Phone > Android version.Detailed Steps on How to Enable USB Debugging on Different Android Versions: A. For Android 4.2 and above versions:Go to Settings > About Phone > navigate to Build Number > tap Build Number for seven times. Afterwards, a message will appear informing that you are now a developer.Back to Settings > Developer Options > tick on USB debugging > tap OK to allow USB debugging.B. For Android 4.1 and 4.0:Go to Settings > Developer Options > enable it > USB debugging > allow USB debugging.C. For Android 2.3 and previous versions:Go to Settings > Applications > Development > tick on USB debugging. It?s all. Part 3. Enable USB Debugging on Android with Broken ScreenOnce USB debugging is been enabled, the development tool should recognize your Android device. What if your phone screen is broken or cracked? Is it possible to enable USB debugging with broken screen? Don?t worry, you can buy an OTG Adapter to connect your phone and USB mouse, then use the mouse to make actions on the phone to enable USB debugging. Part 4. Fix Android Phone Wont Connect to ComputerChange another USB cable instead. Some USB cables may not work properly if they were broken or of interior quality.Check the USB port of both Android device and computer to see if they both can work normally. The USB port are prone to getting broken by abnormal ejection and insertion.Remove other USB devices that are attached to the computer, as they may be conflicting with the device you wish to connect with.Install USB Driver for your Android device. If you?re sure the USB cable and ports are fine, you may need to download the proper USB driver according to the brand and model of your device...best regards...

Am looking to ditch my iphone to head to the other side....... My question is, which android phone do I buy? Sure the newer stuff has all the hardware benefits, but I have heard the Nexus One may be a better buy because the software will update sooner and is more likely to receive newest updates being a Google phone. If not the Nexus, then what and why. I am a general user / smart phone enthusiast and live in New Zealand where reception can sometimes also be an issue.

It's not something I would do regularly because you can eat up your mobile data plan very quickly and you pay a lot of extra charges. I suggest you check with your carrier for combined data plans. I have one with my carrier that combines my data plan for my phone and tablet. I don't have a laptop but I know they have combined data plans for that too. There are ways to do this economically but you should shop around and see what carriers in your area have.

The Wifi at my house connects to my phone with full bars but it wont load anything or work what so ever! Here's some more information... my phone runs on the android operating system, OnePlusOne is the name of my phone) when it connects sometimes there will be an exclamation point that shows up next to it and this only happens at my house. Every other wifi network i connect to works just fine except my own. My computer connected with an Ethernet cable works just fine and the wifi is functional on it and my laptop (wireless) also connects and uses the network with no issues.
So far i have tried rebooting my phone, disconnecting and reconnecting, turning my wifi on my phone off and then on again, and turning my router/modem off and then on again as well. If you may know a possible solution please answer this.

I have asked before but cannot find the original post so my problem is -

I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 phone and I keep info I use all the time ie codes, appointment times etc in an app called memo now this has been transferred to the SD card thinking I could open the memo and copy the info/data direct to my laptop or desktop but am met with a barrage of things to do like install Kies etc etc ad nauseum and then use sync the device etc only to find I still cannot open anything but photos everything else is just an empty or folder filled with jibberish.

What I would lie to find out is why data cannot be accessed from the phone even though I have installed the Kies and done everything that has been suggested?? I am now thinking of just taking photos of the memo app when it is open because I have already lost the lot when the phone crashed once before and redoing the data is annoyingly time consuming and extremely tedious.

Any ideas please - oh have asked on the android forum with not much luck.

I don't know is it a right section, so sorry. Next: sorry for my bad english. Let's go.
First thing - this is my first post. I'm looking for help to use my android phone as webcam by connecting it via USB. Second thing, the problem is:
I find a way to use my phone camera as web camera by using DroidCam soft. Ok, so I installed that app on my android phone, and another one on my PC (Windows 8.1). I cannot connect via USB couse it screams "No devices detected". Okay, I found the sollution that I must download and install the BlueStacks soft. So I have download propably the 0.8 version and in the middle of installing (again sorry for my bad english) my computer restart by itself. Now I cannot finish the installation couse install app says that I've already that soft, and I cannot upgrade to new version (I get a message I've new version already).
The point is that in the solution about Droidcam I must run that Bluesomthingshit to get it working. I cannot, couse it's not install on my computer (the folder have ~800mb, but it should have 2gb), I cannot uninstall it couse I don't have that application on list of instaled apps.
Can somebody help me with this? Or how to connect ASUS ZenFone (X00AD, android ver 6.0.1) via USB to laptop to get working webcam?

Unfortunately, despite my best efforts to find a better alternative, where I live my only option for unlimited internet with any speed whatsoever is to tether my DROID DNA phone to my computer using the app PdaNet. I've been doing this for over a year now without any problems. I have an unlimited data plan through Verizon and although I only have 3G at my house, it is still far better than anything else I've found.

Recently I started playing the online game World of Warcraft. Obviously the speed isn't ideal, but it worked perfectly fine for about 3 weeks. One night the game started to get really slow and after a minute or two would freeze up entirely. When this happened, I would have an error message on my phone at the PdaNet screen that read "Communication with client has been broken." Despite restarting things, this continued to happen. I assumed that it was because the weather was bad outside, but the problem didn't go away the next day. When I noticed that my internet speed when browsing the web had slowed down as well I figured that although I supposedly have unlimited data, that Verizon must have slowed me down for crossing over a certain download barrier. I've heard that they do this.

So this went on for the next week until the first of the month when my data was reset through Verizon. Well I'm still having the same issue when trying to play the game. It will work alright for anywhere from 30 seconds to 10 minutes, and then al... Read more

I want to acces my phone's internal memory and/or sd-card as a network folder (through wifi). Just like windows pc-s and laptops. How can I do this?

A:How can I set my Android phone to appear as network folder

As far as I know there is no way to enable SMB Share on Android without downloading some software to the phone, There are quite a few file managers that have the option to enable file sharing with almost any OS.
The way I do it on my phone is with a program called AirDroid there is a free and paid version, I use the free version and as far as I know it is not capable of SMB share, you connect to it from a web browser.
There are other option's, you could run a FTP,HTTP server but I'm not sure if it would work since Android is based on Linux and with Linux any port below 1024 requires root.
Now that I think about it SMB requires ports below 1024 (port 445), so any solution you come up with will require that you can change the default port to something like 8080 which is a default port for many Linux OS's to start a service without root.

I know I sound crazy but I am starting to miss Itunes. I had my MP3 folder with a batch of copied stuff from my main archive. It was organized for Windows. Most of the time Itunes was easy to use in that I droped the folder into it and made it my default folder so I could delete stuff from the MP3 folder via itunes it processed it and bam working very few issues. I never got duplicate playlist had some improperly removed mp3 files which stuck in itunes.

Right now I am having so many issues updating my mp3's and playlists and with duplicate playlists, empty playlists its driving me nuts. How do you manage and sync songs for android without a ton of issues? I was jsut copying the folder over but the dump way android handles files I can not use my windows sync programs. I got tired of it screwing things up so I tried winamp and it just had to sort everything in a horrible incoherent manner(album/artist folders ,ect) and that did not fix any of my issues. Out of the few players I like I like Shuffle and Rocket player but as far as I understand it they don't control anything they just play. Right now I have 50GB of mp3's on my micro sd card and its reporting 80k music files.... its nonsense....

I am just so lost.

A:Best way to sync mp3 folder to an android phone?

Hi. Calm down! I guess you just changed from iPhone to Android phone not long ago? Once you plug in your Android, you should see a portable device folder where you can manage all the files in your Android. If this doesn't work, there are also many desktop syncing programs just like iTunes, such as iTools, Apowersoft Phone Manager, MobileGo, etc. However, personally, I would recommend you to use wireless apps like AirMore for managing Android files on web or Pushbullet for transferring files in a fast way.

I had posted this question in a few android/phone based forums and unfortunately no one there that can offer a solution. Hence, I joined here and looking for a solution and I am sure it is doable as one of my other phone is able to do it so basically it must be something to do with the settings on the phone or installing an additional pieve of software or app. Here is the question....

I am trying to connect to my office wifi which uses a proxy server.

Scenario 1: I am using Samsung Bada (wave 1), connected to the internet successfully and also any applications that require an internet connection including Samsung's app store.

While, connecting via open networks like home wifi and other friends' wifi also worked without any issue.

Scenario 2: Now I also have an android based Galaxy pocket: even after entering all the required proxy setting as mentioned above, I can access websites via browser but cannot access samsung's app store, google's play store, skype, sipdroid etc.,

I know it is nothing to do with the network administration as I am still accessing via my samsung wave but not via android. Please help me in identifying what I am missing. Is there anything like a network profile I need to assign for these applications?

2.using wireless adapter:by using softwares to make it function like a router.but i don't know how much reliable this method is.plus even the posters recommend to go for a router.

3.Reverse tethering my phone: but for it all the sites say the phone must be rooted. And i'm not able to root my phone in any way.so this choice is out.Reply to this choice if there's any way to reverse tether without rooting.

most of all i want to spend the least and be sure it'll work.

I'm not sure if anyone else is having this issue, but Cortana on my Android phone is sending multiple notifications of text messages, missed calls, etc. to my Windows 10 machine. As few as two to as much as five of a repeat notifications will be received by my machine.

I've been doing the usual Google searches to rectify this issue and, to no avail, the feature must be too new for this issue to arise. I suspect it is because I've reinstalled Cortana at least twice, so she must have some sort of repeated setting per each received notification, and therefore pushes the notification per each log that I've asked for mirrored notifications to my Windows 10 machine.

I'm finding the toasts to pop up five times every text message to get really annoying, to the point where I need to activate Quiet Hours on the Action Center. I don't really want to do this, as it is counter-intuitive to productivity. If anyone has a solution to this, please share for all of us. Thank you.

Hello @sdvann, I understand that your computer running Windows 7 is no longer recognising your Android phone when you plug it in.

This will reverse any settings or updates that may have caused this issue. Please feel free to re-post if you require further assistance. Thank you for posting on the HP Forums. Have a great day!

A android phone needs to be urgently connected to my Neat gear WGR614v7 router.
​After putting WPA2 password in the wi-fi section of the phone, the phones wi-fi continually tries to connect to the router. Some times the phone gets connected to the router.
But there are frequent outages at my place. So after an outage the phone again gets disconnected. Even if the signal strength is strong it keeps on saying checking network status, connecting and then disconnected and starts all over again. The phone then never seems to connect again to the router.
The Net gear router hardware version is V7 and the firmware version is V2.0.30_2.0.30.
Please give a solution as soon as possible.

The issue is, I'm trying to learn how to transfer files from my notebook computer to my Android phone via the command line utility( C:\ ).

I've tried going to the directories where the files are located then using the command : copy(file name) H:/(android phone directory)/sdcard/folder destination.

What am I doing wrong?

Much thanks in advance

A:Transferring files from W7 to Android rooted phone

Could it be a simple typo? The path should be typed with backslash \ instead of slash /, so the path should be H:\sdcard\folder instead of H:/sdcard/folder.

Hi there.

I am currently studying the possibility of getting a Windows Phone 8 smartphone. As someone who owned Android phones for 4 years my criteria (and standards) for getting a phone are build quality, camera quality, battery life, customizations, multitasking, music and audio quality & performance. These issues are important to me especially in my present age/job/needs/likes.

I would like to ask about:

1. Photos - Now i heard photos are stored in the Albums folder is that correct? Is there a basic editing tool from Windows Phone 8 (WP8)?

2. Camera - Is there a quick camera icon toggle thingy in the lock screen (similar to iOS7.1 & Android 4.4.2) where i just swipe up to quickly lunch the camera? How fast does the camera load up? I have heard about the Nokia Pro Camera with it's pseudo burst mode option but does WP8 has that very quick shutter button with zero lag when taking shots much like the iPhone 5 & Galaxy S3?

3. Keyboard - Can i install 3rd-party keyboard apps in place or on top of what the standard WP8 keyboard is? Are there emoji icons built-in to the standard WP8 keyboard? Is there a 1st-party or third-party app wherein you can swipe or slide your fingers on the keyboard for an even faster typing?

I am trying to sync my Outlook 2007 with my andriod phone, it keeps giving me a "Sorry Activity Email (in application email) is not responding" error, and the two options are force close or wait - one logs out the other does nothing. I have trouble shot it with sprint, and replaced the device 4 times, and tired this account on other models of andriod phones and other andriod O/S and get the same result, so all things are pointing to the Outlook account. What can I check in his outlook account to figure out why his account does this. I have well over 100 other users in the company with outlook accounts working on a variety of andriod phones, and they are all working fine, just not this one.
