The new Intel Android* USB Driver package 1. 9.0 is available for download at the Intel Developer Zone. It enables you to connect your Windows*-based machine to your Android* device that contains an Intel® Atom™ processor inside. This includes the latest Intel® Atom™ x3 and x5 processor families and supported host systems with Windows* 8.1 (32/64-bit) and Android devices including those with Android* 4.4 – Kit Kat and Android* 5.x – Lollipop.
USB drivers for Android devices are platform-specific, and there is no guarantee that this Intel USB driver will work for every OEM device. Since most OEMs develop the USB driver for all devices that they sell, we recommend that you also check out the Android* OEM USB driver page that lists the OEM drivers.
This installation instructions document will guide you through installing the Intel® Android* USB Driver package which will enable you to connect your Windows* based machine to your Android device that contains an Intel® Atom™ processor inside.
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:
Device is not recognized at all
These drivers are only for Intel® devices. If you’re using a device from one of our OEM, please get the drivers directly from their web site, or you can use this list of drivers on the Android* site.
Errors in the Windows* Device Manager
Open Windows Device Manager:
Portable Device but no Android Debug Bridge (ADB) profile
There may not be an enabled “USB Debugging” option. The developer options on a phone are hidden by default. Open the settings on a phone, and find the About section. Look through it until the "Build number" entry is visible. Tap if five times in quick succession, and there should be a small dialog stating it’s now set to developer. Come back to Settings main menu and go into Developer Options, then enable USB Debugging.
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.
