I recently switched from Linux to Windows 8 consumer preview. I have installed the latest android SDK including the Google USB driver. I connect my Nexus S to the laptop, the phone goes into USB debugging mode. But Eclipse doesn't detect it. if I do >adb devices, the phone doesn't show up. Please help!
Try this: find the .android folder in your home directory, and replace the adb_usb.ini file with this one. this tells your computer to let adb work with a load of different usb devices. You may need to restart ADB via the command line:
adb kill-server adb start-server
and now adb should show you your device
Try to edit adb_usb.ini and add your device id you can find it by going to the device manager find the "Android ADB Interface" double click on it go to the details tab, and on the "Property" drop down menu select "Hardware Ids" on the box below it labeled "Values" You should see something like "USB\VID_2207&PID_0010&MI_01" The numbers maybe different based on your device vendor id, for example my vendor id is "2207" No open the adb_usb.ini located on the folders below and add your device id in hex format
for example my device id is "2207" I'll put it there as "0x2207"
It is usually located in
- XP: \Documents and Settings\.android\
- Windows 7: \Users\.android\
- Windows 8: I really dont know.
But if the folder doesnt exist try to create it by using cmd. And if the file adb_usb.ini also doesnt exist you can create it using notepad and only pasting only your device id and save it on the .android folder.
