Download Google USB Driver, run a text editor (like Notepad) “as Administrator” then open ‘android_winusb.inf’ file inside the USB driver folder. (The Google USB Driver is located in <android-sdk>extras\google\usb_driver\.)
Just add these new lines under [Google.NTx86] or [Google.NTamd64] (depending on whether you are using 32 bit or 64 bit Windows) and save it.

;Olipad 110 or Lifetab P9514
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USBVID_0408&PID_B009&MI_01
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USBVID_0408&PID_B009&REV_9999&MI_01

Note:
USBVID_0408&PID_B009&REV_9999&MI_01
USBVID_0408&PID_B009&MI_01
are written in Device Manager, expand Unknow Device, right-click on FGx, Properties, Details tab, Hardware Ids  property.

Open a Command Prompt Window (Start -> Run -> cmd) and execute the following command:
echo 0x408 >> "%USERPROFILE%\.android\adb_usb.ini"

Note: Just add new line with ‘0x408’ value the VID (Vendor ID) number (VID_0408) written like hexadecimal format into ‘adb_usb.ini’ file that is located in C:\Users\<username>\.android\

Now Google USB Driver are configured to support FGx hardware.

To be able to use adb and other SDK tools with your device, you can proceed as follows:

  1. On your tablet, go to Menu > Settings > Applications > Development and enable ‘USB Debugging’.
  2. Connect your Android Hardware Device to your computer’s USB port. You will get a notification that some drivers were not installed, which is OK for now.
  3. Right-click on Computer from your desktop or Windows Explorer, and select Manage.
  4. Select Device Manager in the left pane of the Computer Management window.
  5. Locate and expand Unknow Device in the right pane.
  6. Right-click FGx and select Update Driver. This will launch the Hardware Update Wizard.
  7. Select Install from a list or specific location and click Next.
  8. Select Search for the best driver in these locations; un-checkSearch removable media; and check Include this location in the search.
  9. Click Browse and locate the USB driver folder. (The Google USB Driver is located in <android-sdk>\extras\google\usb_driver\.)
  10. If you get any warnings prompts telling you that the driver might not be compatible, just choose to continue installing.
  11. Once the drivers have been installed, you should be able to use adb with your device.
  12. To confirm that your device is recognized, launch a Command Prompt window and enter these commands (adb tool is located in <android-sdk>\platform-tools\.):
    adb kill-server
    adb start-server
    adb devices

    If you see your device name or a few numbers as the output under the list of devices, your device is now recognized by adb.
