Problem Troubleshooting Vista ADB USB Connection.

 This one is kinda weird...

I have a Ubuntu 8.10 box with everything including Eclipse working
perfectly, both the emulator and USB connection to my ADP1... works

But I decide to inflict Vista on myself by attempting to get Eclipse
and ADT working on my Vista laptop.

I set up Vista with Eclipse and installed the Android plug-in...
but... the only thing NOT working is the USB connection using the
exact same USB cable to the exact same ADP1.

Everything including the emulator is just fine, but no USB to ADP1.  ;o

Here is the message I get when I try to use the ADB command line:

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6000]
Copyright (c) 2006 Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.

C:\Users\John>adb version
Android Debug Bridge version 1.0.20  <---- (Same version as on the
Linux box)

C:\Users\John>adb shell
* daemon not running. starting it now *
* daemon started successfully *
error: device not found

C:\Users\John>adb shell
error: device not found



And to top it all off, the Device Manager shows the ADP1 sdcard as a
USB mass storage device. but won't let me install the USB driver over
the Microsoft version.

I've been scouring around looking for a solution but remain flummoxed
so far.

Thanks for any pointers to a solution for this vexing pain in the

 Good solution.  I'm having the same problem with Vista.  When my Mac
comes, I think I'll setup Eclipse on that instead.

 If you have Vista 32 bit installed, it should work and i can't help
you to fix your problem.

However, if you have a 64bit system, check this thread: ;highlight=64bit+usb

It may fix your issues :)

1. ATITC graphics format

I found a video on "Writing Real Time Games for Android" (http:// which
mentioned that the G1 supports ATITC format. I assume this ATI's
Texture Compression.

I've searched for more details but I can't find much information on
this format. Specifically I'd like to know where I can find an app/
plugin to convert to this format (Can "The Compressonator" do it?) and
how to load it. texImage2D only takes a Bitmap, which it looks like it
only supports JPEG, GIF, PNG, and BMP.

Thanks in advance.

Hi guys. I have a main activity which downloads a xml and creates a
List of objects representing that xml. Now, if a user clicks on a item
i want to display a popup dialog (a new activity, the built-in alert
won't cut it) with more info on the selected item. How can i tell the
popup activity which item is clicked? i don't understand :)
