Windows 7 USB Drivers for a Razer Phone

[To finish]

Razer Phone (USB Hardware ID: USB\VID_1532&PID_9052&REV_0404 and USB\VID_1532&PID_9052) says driver software cannot be installed when using Media Transfer Mode. Transfer Photos in PTP mode works fine however. Using a USB3 or USB2 port doesn’t seem to make a difference, and using an Anker USB3 to USBC also does not work.

Plugging into my work desktop PC (Dell Optiplex 7010) running Windows 7 Enterprise picks up fine, also using an Anker USB3 to USBC cable. Following drivers are loaded:

Editing a Windows 7/Windows 10 Hosts File

The Hosts file is a file within Windows which can be used to map IP addresses to hostnames, and can also be used to override settings from DNS servers. The file can be found at C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc however you will need to run NotePad (or Notepad++) as administrator, as it is a protected system file.

Search for Notepad, then right-click and “Run as Administrator”.

 

 

 

 

You can then add and edit the hosts file as nessecary. The lines starting with # are comments and will be ignored by the system.
