    Hi everyone!

    I just got my Liquid week ago, and has almost every difficulty sorted, and the one which still is a pain in the arse is problem with connecting it to my PCs.

    When I once connected it to my home PC, it detected device as Ases HSUSB Device, but I've got no drivers, so I skipped this question, thinking Windows will detect it as a USB Flash. After that, it is (sometimes) working on my Office laptop, after installing the drivers, but I can't get it working on my home PC, because Windows says "USB device not recognized". So I even cannot swap drivers...

    As I said it is working on my Office Laptop, but chance is unpredictable. Sometimes it is also detected as "USB device not recognized".

    Things are a little bit better on Linux. When I do dmesg - I see that device clearly says it is "Acer HSUSB Device", and anoter device is something like "Acer Memory Stick" or something like this. So in most cases I can mount SD. In rare cases Linux says something like "USB device cannot be enumerated", but after reconnecting - things are working.


    I never liked Windows (and it probably does not like me), but what should I do now to get my device connected? And also does anyone knows why it is so unstable?

    Try downloading the Android SDK and then manually downloading the USB drivers through it.

    Make sure that "use as USB device" option is on by clicking on the cable connection icon in your phone
