Pre3 is not recognised by PC in USB mode

Hi guys,
my Pre3 was playing silly buggers and so I decided I would attempt to Doctor it.
Well I had not done it for years and was probably a bit clumsy and now the silly thing gets stuck with the HP logo. If I turn it into USB mode I do get the icon, but neither my Mac, nor a PC recognise it as a USB device.
So when I start the doctor, it can not find the phone.
Is there a way around it? And is there a thread that describes step by step on how to doctor the best way, and maybe also on how best to setup up Preware?
I guess almost 3 years of using a Pre+, the Pre3 and a Touchpad without to many dramas let me forget all the 'how tos'
Any help or suggestions would be highly appreciated, as the Pre+ is getting sluggish and peculiar as well. I really do not want to need and change the platform so please HEELP!

Many thanks Cheers Pacco

Hi Pacco,

maybe something in this thread would help?


it is around webOS quick install however

Doctor versions:

WebOS Doctor Versions - WebOS Internals

I found I had to disable my AV on the PC to get it working correctly when installing quick install, worth a try?
