Eclipse does not recognize Droid phone
I'm hoping to develop apps on my Mac Air. I installed the Eclipse ADT environment and began working through the tutorial. Fine so far. But then I connected up to my LG VS700 (I think it's also called the LG Enlighten) and no dice. Under "Run As", Eclipse informs me "(none applicable)". If I try "Debug" the Android Device Chooser dialog informs me there are no Android devices connected.
After reading various things around the web for how to connect, I have looked in the following places and verified:
1. Phone is set to enable USB debugging.
2. When connected, phone is set to "Connect as Modem" and not "Mass Storage".
3. Android version is 2.3.4, which is also version 10. Manifest file says
Anything else I'm missing? I've seen some mention of having to install driver files for a Windows environment, but that doesn't seem to be applicable to OS X.
I have Parallels on this machine and it is running Windows 7. So if I can't succeed on OS X, my next thing to try is to install the development environment in Windows and see if that works better.
But from all descriptions, OS X should be easy. What am I missing?
