G1 Windows Driver issuesSupport

    Ok well I posted a thread yesterday about setting up my G1 via Wi-Fi. I was provided a very helpful tutorial on just how to do it.

    However I am a little stuck with a driver problem. I have now installed RC29 and am trying to get root access, but whenever I try the "adb devices" command I just get:

    "List of devices attached"

    With nothing listed underneath. I believe it may be a problem with my drivers. Because I haven't been able to access any of the phone features, Windows sees it as a USB Mass Storage device and automatically installs a generic driver for that. I am unable to update the driver to the HTC Dream ones because Windows tells me that it has installed the most recent driver.

    I have tried everything to get the correct driver to install but nothing works! Please help

    Thank youuuu

    EDIT: Also even though it is installed as a Mass Storage device it doesn't show up in My Computer. Also I am running Windows 7.

    Just connect the phone to the PC ... DO NOT Mount the sdcard as you would normally do when wanting to access the sdcard as a usb drive ....

    Now issue your ADB devices command ...
    you should get :
    "List of devices attached" and the serial number of the phone ...

    If you get that then all is fine ...

    I have been connecting the phone to the computer WITHOUT the SD card in it and I have this problem. It always recognizes as a USB Mass Storage device and never shows up in ADB

    I'm having the same issues. I have the drivers, but once the phone is plugged in, it shows up as a removable drive.

    How can I tell windows (XP) to stop mounting the drive automatically, and ask me for drivers instead?
