I have connected Samsung Galaxy Y phone with Android Development Tool (ADT Eclipse) It doesn't recognize my device. I'm using window XP (64 bit) operating system.

I have also made the USB Debugging mode enabled, by Going to Settings->Applications->Development. But no reaction, I have referred this link too no use.

I have also checked the Security -> Unknown Sources.

Simply, I want to use my mobile like emulator by connecting with IDE. But Its not working. If don't know its possible or not.

are you sure your phone is recognized by Windows? You can verify this by looking in the Windows Device Manager if there is no error message or a yellow question mark on your device (you can find it by searching device manager in the search field of start menu) If the driver is not installed you can found it on

Yes. I have already checked it. Thq for your reply. – Rajesh Rajaram Jan 22 '13 at 13:36

Many time there are softwares like Easytether, etc which don't allow adb to access your device. Make sure you don't have any such software installed which interfaces with your phone via usb.

If as stated above is not the case with you, you should try reinstalling KIES and the samsung usb drivers. That should certainly do the task for you.
