    You are trying to connect windows 8 mobile phone to windows 7 PC,

    though the drivers are very similar but being dominent device, PC is trying to manipulate the mobile phone, sysncing that we call.

    but PC is having older operating system compairing with the mobile phone operating system, and there lies the problem.

    Upgrade your PC operating system, or sync with another windows 8 system, or consult mobile phone customer support center for further assistance, which will be accurate and helpful.

    Hello Friend,
    As you told that device manager won't recognized or not listed is that your Device Drivers were not installed properly on Windows. In order to fix this issue follow these steps.

    1) Uninstall the drivers and reinstall it back and update the drivers with latest ones.

    2) After reinstalling it not worked, then Troubleshoot the device for error corrections.

    I recommend you to use Windows Mobile Device Center which helps in connection between phone and pc, As it was developed by Microsoft.

    Hope you Understand, Thank you.

    Hello there !!!

    the notification which you got, "installing your device driver " is shown to you until your device driver is installing.
    and it then disappear when it finished installing your device driver.
    this was all about your notification.

    now comes to your device.
    since your device driver has been installed but it is not getting detected by your machine because it has been installed but not properly.
    because your device is not recognized only in one case and this this when your device driver is not properly installed.

    so, you need to again reconnect your device and install the driver once more.
    and then reboot your machine.
    this will help you a lot.

    hope i am clear to you.
    thanks for posting in EALP.
