Android SDK - USB Driver (Need Help_
Hi there, I'm relatively new to dealing with android development, so I thought it'd be great if some of you took a minute of your time to help me with my dilemma.
Well, basically, I've been trying to install Android SDK to be able to move most of my apps to my SD Card, so I can free a bunch of internal memory.
If you're interested in that, let me know and I'll post the link. (I can't now since it's my first post)
Back to my dilemma. When I downloaded the Android SDK, I also downloaded the USB Driver to be able to connect my phone (when Windows Update attempts to install driver, it finds nothing and in device manager "Android Phone" shows up with a little question mark) so I could be able to use the SDK properly.
However, when I do the manual install of the SDK (When Hardware Installation asks me for the specified folder, I direct it to "C:\\......\......\android-sdk\extras\google\usb_driver") and it automatically tells me that nothing was found for installation.
I have tried uninstalling it and installing it twice, but I just can't seem to get it to work. I don't know what's wrong, or why it Windows Update can't find a regular driver in the first place.
Oh, and I know this question is going to come up: Yes, the phone is is "debugging" mode, and is properly connected.
I'd really appreciate any help, since I'm completely stuck.
