    I never tried it but if you have old 7, Vista or XP discs you could create a VM and see if it works better. Could also go dual boot just for Android stuff. Nice thing about VM though is you can get the media files already on the host.

    I'm still doing the procedures from the link you gave me. I will continue tomorrow. But I can tell you now, I have another 8.1 computer that does work (how do we explain that), and also, I've tried before the instructions of the links (I found them in other posts, basically that's all the info there is out there).

    And still, in the case my phone would work, what about my tablet or other phones? I still think there's something weird with the OS...

    Thank you nevertheless, I'll keep trying and keep you informed

    I finished, absolutely nothing has worked for me, not even the response at the bottom. Again, in device manager the device is there and correctly installed (in appearance), but for some reason the phone is not showing on the explorer.

    OK, weirdest thing ever, my dad's phone IS recognized, but not mine or my tablet. Why is that? My phone hasn't changed from win7 to 8.1!

    Should I try safe mode?

    Problem solved. Guess what was the cause: the Media Scanner Optimizer Xposed module. Don't know why though. But at least my phone & tablet are recognized again.

    Thanks for all your support
