Hi,

 

Unfortunately, I ended up deleting some .dll files in C:\Windows\System32\drivers that seem to be essential for the running of MTP devices. I can't remember the name of the files, but they have a file name beginning with W and there were a total of 2 that I deleted.

 

Does anybody know how I can get them back? Or can anyone provide clean versions of these files?

 

Thank you in advance.

 

EDIT: I think one of them was this: http://www.processlibrary.com/en/directory/files/wpdmtp/410923/ but I don't know the name of the other. It was right underneath this one, though.

First off - Welcome to BC !

 

Doing a Windows restore will probably fix this problem for you, so long as this error took place reasonably recently and you have a restore point that dates from before this happened.

 

If you have never done it before, here's how.

 

Click 'Start - Control panel - Recovery - Open System restore'. Click 'Next' on the box that opens and you will be given a list of recent restore points. If none of these pre-date your problem, at the bottom left, there is a button 'Show more restore points'. Select an appropriate restore point then click 'Next'. You will then get a couple of warning screens saying this process cannot be reversed, just click 'Yes', 'Next', 'Accept' as relevant and the process will start. Once it starts it normally takes a few minutes and when it has finished it will ask you to re-boot if it doesn't do so automatically. Re-boot and you should be OK.

 

It is possible that this will not fix your problem, in which case try an earlier restore point. Let us know how you get on.

PS - Let this be a lesson - leave the Windows folder strictly alone in future !        CC

Unfortunately, I don't have System Restore active. :/

 

All I really need is a clean version of the "Wpdmtpdr.dll" file from C:\Windows\System32\drivers on a Windows 7 computer.

 

Can anyone offer that?

OK, a quick google tells me that these are not Windows files but files used in connection with a Samsung mobile phone so probably installed as part of the interface between your phone and the computer. Unhappily for you, since I don't own a smart phone, my ignorance on the subject is legend. I don't even know if the phone comes with a CD of drivers or not.

 

I would suggest that your best course of action would be, first, to download the drivers from Samsung if you don't have a disc, then, second to uninstall the Samsung software and re-install it. You may find these links of help :
