Computer Not Recognizing Captivate with USB Debugging

Last Updated:

    Alright, I've searched for a while and tried to find the reason why this is happening. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers several times. On the first connect after the install, it seems like the computer sees the phone but then it disappears. My phone connects just fine without USB Debugging enabled, but it simply won't work when it is enabled. Any ideas?

    I had this issue with my wife's Captivate.

    I had to download another launcher (I use Launcher Pro) because the computer couldn't see the phone while it was using the stock TWLauncher.

    I prefer to use another launcher anyways so I figured this out accidentally when I was setting up her phone.

    Thanks for the reply. That seems odd to me, considering I'm using Launcher Pro. Maybe I should try using TouchWiz, and see if somehow I have the opposite problem from you. I'll do this when I get home, but in the mean time has anyone else had this problem and found a different fix?

    I used Home Switcher to go from Launcher Pro back to Touch Wiz, and my computer recognized the phone. However, the Android Central Sideload Wonder Machine gives me the following error: "Failure: Install_Failed_Insufficient_Storage." I have about 1.6gb left for apps, so that's not the issue. Anyone know what's wrong?

    I've had awful issues with Windows 7 X64 with drivers. My only solution (random as it may seem) was to use a Blackberry cable to connect to the computer. I have had zero issues after switching cables.

    Perhaps I'll try using my dad's or my sister's when I'm home this weekend, maybe that will work. Thanks for the input.

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I've been pulling my hair out for 2 days trying to get my XP desktop to recognize the Captivate to no avail. I was using Launcher Pro so I installed home switcher, went back to TW and voila! It saw the phone. Thanks again and HTH!

    Glad I could help. Does anyone know what to do about the issue I'm having re: Insufficient_Storage?

    cyraxx: responding to your initial problem (cant connect to pc with debuggin on) I had the same problem. I tried everything with drivers and nothing worked. You know what fixed it? Plugging the usb into a motherboard port instead of the front case port. Seriously, give it a try even if you think its not going to help.

    ^This. Because many front usb ports aren't highspeed.

    Also, sometimes you might need to restart your phone, although it's a rare occasion that only happened to me once.

    From when I installed the drivers on my PC the first time - the device kept failing. Once I restarted the phone, works fine.

    I fixed that problem, and it wasn't from switching ports. This could be useful for others, though.

    Restarted my phone several times, but it hasn't helped my current problem.
