Android : How To Install Droid USB Driver On Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit?
Unlike some others, my Android SDK setup went smoothly on my new Windows 7 Pro 64 bit machine. However, I am currently hung up on installing the android usb drivers. What is the current state of this issue? There has been some discussion of this problem on the web but no consensus is immediately apparent.

Android : How To Install USB Driver For Nexus One On Windows 7?
I have implemented a simple Android application that I now would like to test on a real device. I have a Nexus One. In the Android Eclipse plugin, I have downloaded and installed the USB driver (revision 3) package. But when I connect my Nexus One to my PC (running Windows 7) using the USB cable, a message box pops up and shows that "No driver found" for "Nexus One". I have activated USB Debugging on my device. And when I run adb devices on my PC, it just prints List of devices attached and no devices are listed. And if I use Device Manages in Windows, and tries to update the driver for "Nexus One", I can not select a driver in the "driver directory" of Android SDK. How can I install a driver for Nexus One on Windows 7 so I can use it for USB debugging my Android applications on a real device?
Android :: Windows XP USB Driver - DROID - Hero - Tattoo
At the Google Android Developer Lab event today I had the opportunity to try out a series of devices but was somewhat limited due to issues I had with the USB drivers for the XP/SP2 notebook I brought along. (Yeah I know) In the past, I've had no problem with the G1 or Google Ion, but the Motorola DROID, HTC Hero, Tattoo and a few others did not work, i.e. were not, or only partially visible. Before you ask, this problem persisted after updating the XP USB drivers to the latest _r2.
Has anybody successfully connected devices outside of the G1 and Google Ion on XP? Any tips?
After having been one of the more vocal complainers about the lack of devices available for developers, I've followed the moral imperative once this opportunity was provided by Google. Big thanks to the team at Google for filling this gap.
HTC Incredible :: Way To Install USB Driver / ADB Driver?
In case anyone else is having problems getting their Incredible to connect, the easiest way I found to install the USB drivers are with the HTC sync program here:
The google SDK driver doesn't yet work with the Incredible, and though it can be hacked - this download might be easier for some.
Android :: Driver On Windows 7
I cannot get windows to install the SDK drivers instead of its preloaded disk drivers. I have tried to do a manual update from the device manager, but windows believes it knows better and says the best drivers are already installed. I also tried to shut of the automatic driver installation through the system settings but it still installs its own drivers. This is getting extremely frustrating, when i run adb it says that there is no device connected.
Android :: Windows 2K - Running Emulator Or Installing Native Driver
I know that Google elected Windows XP (eXtra Problems) to be the minimum operating system, but was anyone here able to run it on win2k? Being able to run the emulator OR install the native driver (to debug in the device) would be enough. I really would not like to have to buy a new computer just because of android. Since I already work with many other platforms without problems.
Samsung Captivate :: Windows Cannot Find USB Driver / Solution For This?
I have a new Captivate and am attempting to establish a USB connection with Windows XP sp2.
I have downloaded setup two different USB drivers, (1) from Samsung--I assume it's the official driver, and (2) from the Android SDK. Both installations ran without error. But when I attempt to install either driver, Windows complains that it cannot locate the driver. I'm at a loss.
Windows is finds the Captivate when connected but only intermittently. Sometimes it identifies it and sometimes it doesn't.
Android :: ADB Driver Not Found Windows Vista 64 - T-Mobile MyTouch3g Slide - HTC Expresso?
Until now, have been using Android SDKs Emulator with the Eclipse plug-in, but recently replaced my non-Android phone to T-Mobile's MyTouch 3G Slide. Today, tried to install the Windows Android USB Driver for the phone. Followed instructions in http://d.android.com/sdk/win-usb.html (USB Driver for Windows Android Developers).
When looking for the driver, Windows gave me a "Could Not Find Driver Software" message. When telling Windows where to search, I pointed it to the SDK directory where the driver resides (¦Android-SDK-windows/ usb_driver). Also tried ¦Android-SDK-windows. Specified use sub- folders" in both tries. I am using Vista 64 bit, and suspect that may be the cause.
The "could not find.." message box from Windows has this information under Details:
Problem Event Name: PnPDriverNotFound Architecture: x64 Hardware Id: USBVID_0BB4&PID_0E03&REV_0100&MI_01 OS Version: 6.0.6002.2.2.0.256.1 Locale ID: 1033
In Windows Device Manager, "Other Devices ==>ADB==> Properties" shows Device type: Other Devices Manufacturer: Unknown Location: 0000.001d.0007.002.000.000.000.000.000 Device Status: This device is not configured correctly. (Code 1). There is no driver selected for the device information set or element
In the sdk's "usb_driver" directory, the "android_winusb.inf" file has several VID's beginning with 0BB..., but does not have one for the one listed above. Nor is there a [ ... ]header entry for the MyTouch 3G Slide (Expresso?)
I suspect this is the reason for the "Driver not found"
Am using the 32 bit version of "Eclipse IDE for Java Developers" downloaded last April. (At that time there were a lot of forum warnings about not using the 64 bit version.)
Today, before trying to install the driver, I uninstalled the Android plug-in from Eclipse and then uninstalled the Android SDK I had installed in April which was at the 2.1 level. I reinstalled the SDK at the 2.2 level taking "all items". Then reinstalled the Eclipse plug- in.
In the "Android SDK and AVD Manager" checked for any updates. There were none (I'd just re-installed, so that makes sense)
Information in this thread looked like a solution:
When I tried that, got the same message box.
These two threads from 2009 have entries that say the 64 bit driver is in the SDK I cant find it. Could be looking the wrong place though.
The android_winusb.inf has these two .CAT entries in it CatalogFile.NTx86 = androidwinusb86.cat CatalogFile.NTamd64 = androidwinusba64.cat
Using the information from the above ¦5512 thread, I added these lines to the [Google.NTx86] group immediately following the ";Google NexusOne" information and before the [Google.NTamd64] entry
When that did not make any difference, added: %SingleBootLoaderInterface% = USB_Install, USBVID_0BB4&PID_0FFF which was also part of a post. Made no difference
The .INF has a [ClassInstall32], entry, but there is no [ClassInstall64] entry. I do not know enough about INFs to know if that is needed or not.

Android :: SDK Install - For Windows XP
I have an Evo 4G and I'm eventually trying to root it (the right way). I'm trying to install the SDK (for Windows XP) and I'm having an issue. I installed the Sun Java JRE, HTC Sync and I downloaded the SDK. I re-booted my PC, then enabled USB debugging on my Evo and plugged it in to a high speed USB port and then let Windows find the drivers. Now I did a test to make sure the SDK was installed correctly. I went to "android-sdk/tools", then opened a command prompt and entered "adb devices" to make sure that I can see the device's serial number...but I keep getting this...'adb' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file".
I keep getting this error message even after I prompt to the tools directory. I tried re-installing drivers, I tried deleting and re-installing all software and nothing seems to do the trick. I still keep getting "...is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file".
Android :: Install Windows Mobile Phones
Install Android on your HTC Windows Mobile phones - Kongtechnology.com. Google, the land of milk and honey, have smashed open the smartphone market when they released their Android platform for free to developers and in one fell swoop, gave a huge stride forward for smartphones everywhere. Traditionally, the smartphone market relied on specific operating systems such as Nokiaï¿½s Symbian, Palmï¿½s PalmOS and Apple with their iPhone OS. Each company fights to keep their software on their own phones and the result is that a person is locked into using only phones from a particular company if they are familiar with the software. As they say, you canï¿½t have your pie and eat it.
Samsung Behold 2 :: Cannot Install Phone Drivers On Windows 7 64 Bit
I have had this phone since April and it has been pretty disappointing overall with the whole not upgrading to Android 2.1 and such, but that's not the issue right now. I bought a new laptop about 2 weeks ago and I want to use my phone with my laptop. I download the drivers for the phone and they could not install and everytime I connect the phone to the computer it says the device is not recognized. The phone now can't connect and I can't see the files that are on the phone. I want to be able to put music and videos on my phone and I can't now. It works perfectly fine one my desktop which is an XP, but I wont be able to use the desktop because I will be leaving for college soon.

Android :: Google Create Instuctions That Windows Users Understand. Googles Instructionsfor - NDK Install
Below are the only instructions i managed to find from google on how to install the android NDK, it is written as if we all run Linux and presumes we all understand what these obscure tools are. My comments and questions appear in Italics if somone who knows unix and windows would translate for google that would be great!
Android NDK Installation
Please read docs/OVERVIEW.TXT to understand what the Android NDK is and is not. This file gives instructions on how to properly setup your NDK.
The Android NDK currently requires a Linux, OS X or Windows host operating system. Windows users will need to install Cygwin (http://www.cygwin.com) to use it. Note that running the NDK under MSys is not supported.
You will need to have the Android SDK and its dependencies installed. The NDK cannot generate final application packages (.apk files), only the shared library files that can go into them.
The Android NDK can only be used to target system images using the Cupcake (1.5) or later releases of the platform. This is due to subtle toolchain and ABI related changed that make it incompatible with 1.0 and 1.1 system images.
The NDK requires GNU Make 3.81 or later being available on your development system. Earlier versions of GNU Make might work but have not been tested.
You can check this by running 'make -v' from the command-line. The output should look like:
GNU Make 3.81 Copyright (C) 2006 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
On certain systems, GNU Make might be available through a different command like 'gmake' or 'gnumake'. For these systems, replace 'make' by the appropriate command when invoking the NDK build system as described in the documentation.
Great some strange thing called gnu make.. if your not going to tell me what it does maybe you then at least you could give me a URL to it?
The NDK also requires a Nawk or GNU Awk executable being available on your development system. Note that the original 'awk' program doesn't implement the 'match' and 'substr' functions used by the NDK build system.
Ok another tool, with 1 of 2 possible names, but not the third... and again where should i download this?
On Windows, you will need to install a recent release of Cygwin to use the NDK.
See http://www.cygwin.com for instructions.
Woohoo a URL! download took about a day because these install instructions do not specify what parts to download.
II. Preparing your installation prebuilt cross-toolchain binaries:
After installing and unarchiving the NDK, you will need to run the following
command from the root folder:
hello? windows dont run nothing but .exe .com or .dll, just tell me how you want me to run it..
This will test your setup and make sure the NDK can work properly.
Nothing is said about where any of these things need to be installed to (what directory)
Samsung I7500 :: How To Proceed Odin That Doesn't Involve Fresh Windows Install?
I'm trying to flash my new Galaxy using Odin (because I got it sim-free and I don't have the market). I'm doing this on WinXP inside VMWare on Linux, unfortunately. It had only this to say: <1> Added! <1> Detected!
That is, after I filled in the filename and pressed start, the two boxes went yellow and the timer began counting but there was no other output. I killed it after about 45 mins. I've tried this with the II5 (one file) and IH7 (multiple files) firmware versions linked to from this site. Now, I guess the obvious culprit here is VMWare, but it seems odd that it would find the device and then give up (and NPS and mass storage work as well as expected). Also, even if I don't connect the Galaxy to the PC, the only way I can find to leave the 'downloading...' screen is to pull out the battery - is that normal? I did try with native WinXP on an old laptop too, but it's a 7-year-old installation and it wasn't playing ball... so I'm hoping someone here has a suggestion for how to proceed that doesn't involve a fresh Windows install?

Sprint HTC Hero : Windows Drive Mounting - Reintroduce My Phone To The Windows Box
I have had DC 2.08.1 installed for about 2 weeks with no issues. I decided to go ahead and partition the SD to utilized apps2SD as I was having memory issues. That process, while not smooth, went through okay and the SD card is working with the partition and apps2SD. However, ever since that was completed, my Windows 7 box no longer recognizes the phone either as a phone or as a drive. My Linux laptop recognizes the drive without issue.
Any suggestions on how I can reintroduce my phone to the Windows box, at least as a drive?
Motorola Droid :: Vista Driver Problem - Unknown Device
I ran into the first problem with my Droid- and I am sure it is not the Droid itself. I am running Vista32- I have Motorola Media Link installed. When I plug my Droid into the PC, I get a mass storage device that installs OK most of the time, and an "unknown device".. Even when I mount the SD from the phone, I still see no Drive in my computer The unknown device never installs. I have tried almost every suggestion i have seen.. reboot pc..reinstall MML, reboot phone.. no luck
