Dell Aero not detected on PC

Jump to solution

My Dell Aero phone is not recognized on Windows XP and 7. Windows detects it as Ethernet device but driver installation fails I installed PC-Sync but does not detect it. I can't charge it using USB port of a PC either.

I've tried changing default USB connect mode, but nothing helps

android_winusb.inf fine was missing in my installation of XP.  copied one from net.  But in the meanwhile I also installed Android SDK.  Then reset the phone to it's original settings and chose ADB as default USB connect mode. It installed drivers again and PC suite, edia sync etc started working fine with XP. Connected the same phone to WIn 7 pc at home and it worked with no problems.

In my opinion:

1) Reset the phone and connect.

2) If that doesn't work copy android_winusb.inf file from net in to Dell Aero/drivers folder.

3) There are 2 exe files. Run the one with gui

4) If nothing works, install Android SDK and select download of files for Android 2.1, 2.2, 2.3 after installation. Reboot and check

I'm having the exact same problem. I've got the PC Suite Sync tool installed and working, but not recognized by the PC. Hoping someone replies.

On my XP PC at work, I installed Google's Android SDK. Copied a file android_winusb.ini in Drivers folder of Dell  in Program Files folder. Then reseted  the phone. It started working on XP at least. Will now try on 7.

I think only a reset is necessary.

You had to install the SDK??? I tried to point Windows to the android_winusb.ini file but it says that it won't work with my hardware? Why would the developers kit have to be installed?

For windows 7, it worked just by reset of phone. Additional steps mentioned in previous post was random troubleshooting .
