Can't get screen capture

 I'm having trouble getting a screenshot. I installed the SDk,
Eclipse, the drivers, enable usb debugging, like the instructions say.
I open DDMS and it recognizes my phone without any problems. When I
try to do a screen capture, it says screen not available. In the
command box it says "timeout" and "truncated reply from ADB fb data".
Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

My phone isn't rooted and is running RC33. I'm running windows vista
on my computer.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

 I believe screen capture is disabled in production devices for
security reasons.

No, I can capture screens from my stock G1 through DDMS. I just did
three this morning.

I'd be more inclined to say it's a problem with the Vista drivers,
partly because there have been reported issues with said drivers, and
partly because it's such fun to blame Vista... ;-)

1. Using an Android Phone as a Host Device

Im trying to find out if it is possible to use an Android device (such
as the G1, Touch or any other Android device)

 I know that the G1 for instance has a usb port however I have been
told it can not be used as a host device, I'm wondering if this can be
overcome or if the usb port may be used as a serial connection for
sending and receiving to other serial devices. By using the info found

2. ADC2 [tools] Mezzofanti - Augmented reality through text recognition

Hi all,

we are happy to share with you the release of Mezzofanti, an
application that allows reality augmentation (as seen in camera mode)
with information about any text in view. The augmentation is done
through an internal text-recognition engine.

The application at a glance:
1. Select a text of interest (ex: menu at a restaurant, tourist
information sign, etc), and take a photo. The internal-OCR engine will
start text-recognition.
2. Use Mezzofanti to translate the text (or parts of it) to any one of
over forty languages, or to google it on the web, find more
information in the dictionary or on Wikipedia.

- the internal-OCR engine is a modified version of Tesseract 2.03,
currently developed by Google under Apache License v2.0. - The engine
is particularly optimized for 5 languages (English, German, Spanish,
Italian, and French), but it works fairly well with any other language
that uses the Latin alphabet.
- the interface between the OCR engine (C++) and Java is done in JNI
- the main core is programmed in Java
- the translation engine is based on Google-translate

License information:
- all Mezzofanti code is available for free under the Apache License
v2.0 and it is posted at google code.

On our website you can also find:
- a tutorial about Mezzofanti's features and internal architecture
- all the Mezzofanti code, and a tutorial on how to install & run it
from your own SDK
- how to interface the Tesseract OCR with your own code, JNI/NDK how-
- many other tutorials and examples for Android

We encourage dialog, so please leave us some feedback. We're
particularly interested in collaboration opportunities on new and
exciting projects for mobile platforms.

Looking forward for your thoughts! ;)

Best regards
IT Wizard
