I tried to install the ADB Driver on my Archos 97 Platinum HD on Windows XP. I had downloaded the
Archos Archos ADB USB Driver for Windows (ftp://support.archos.com), but when i tried to install
it on my Windows XP, I got stucked... when I selected the .inf file, it shows an error like "The
descriptor file doesn't contain information about your device".
I'd asked for the drivers on Archos official site, but I was replied that currently the drivers for the
Archos 97 Platinum HD weren't available.
So, following the instructions on this topic:
I decided to give it a try and to change the configuration of the android_winusb.inf file.
So, in the Hardware Administrator Menu (under Control Panel --> System --> Hardware),
I located my Archos Tablet (remember to enable USB debug on the tablet), which appeared as a
unknown device called 'Android', right clicked and select Properties in the menu, and enter into the
In that tab Details, I found the device instance identificator:
So, I edited the android_winusb.inf and added above the ";Archos Gen9" section the following lines:
;Archos 97 Platinum
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0E79&PID_14D8
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0E79&PID_14D8&MI_01
Then i retried to install the driver, and the installation was perfect, without any error.
I plugged via USB my tablet to the PC, and then checked that the tablet was recognized by the
ADB using adb devices:
C:\Documents and Settings\nombre>adb devices
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *
