After installing the USB driver package, plug in your Android device to your computer using your micro-USB to USB cable. The following are the supported USB profiles via the Intel Android USB Driver package:
1/ Device is not recognized at all
2/ I have errors in Windows Device Manager
3/ I can see Portable Device but no Android Debug Bridge (ADB) profile
You may have not enabled “USB Debugging” option.
The developer options on your phone are hidden by default. Open the settings on your phone, and find the About section. Look through it until you see the "Build number" entry. Tap it five times in quick succession, and you should see a small dialog letting you know that you're now a developer.
Come back to Settings main menu and go into Developer Options, then enable USB Debugging.
4/ I’m old school and still using Windows XP. When I activate MTP there is no pop-up to allow me to access phone file system or transfer media files.
MTP is not supported by default with Windows XP. You have to install Windows Media Player 10 or later.
