    Download this:
    http://www.unrevoked.com/rootwiki/l...unrevoked.com/recovery/android-usb-driver.zip

    extract this zip and remember where you save it on your PC.

    plug in your phone to the PC. make sure USB debugging is on.

    turn off your phone

    boot into bootloader (hold power + vol-down)

    select HBOOT USB. you should hear your PC make the USB connected sound. When it starts to look for drivers, point it to that extracted zip folder. It will install the driver.

    next, boot into the bootloader again, but this time, go to Recovery. The same thing will happen on your PC. install the driver in the same way

    next, boot your phone normally. When windows asks for drivers, do the same thing again.

    Once you've installed the driver for these 3 different USB modes, you'll be all set.

    forgot to add:

    when you are in the bootloader, you can navigate the menu with vol-up and vol-down. power button to select.

    I just downloaded the driver .zip file and was able to extract it just fine. Maybe your download got corrupted? Try downloading it again.

    Oh look, an old thread I posted in from last August! I'm surprised it's still relevant :) Wow, it's been a year already?
