Default Gravity Smart not recognized by adb devices command

I'm new to this, so please forgive me if it's a dumb newbie error. I rooted my year-old Samsung Gravity Smart so I could finally get rid of all that bloatware. Now it's time to play around a little. However, when I try to use the adb devices command, it says there aren't any. I did kill-server and start-server, but still nada. Tried adb shell and it also says there's no device to shell to.

I absolutely for sure have the driver for the phone -- when I plug it in and turn on USB debugging, it shows up on my laptop (Windows XP) and I can transfer music files no problem. Also, OneClick root worked perfectly, so clearly my laptop recognizes and talks to my phone via USB.

Am I missing something simple? I hope so, even if it makes me look dumb!

BTW, I have a 32GB SD card, Titanium Pro, and I'll be buying ROM Toolbox Pro tonight.

Where are you running the command from? It has to be ran from the folder adb is in.. So sdk tools or where ever you have it set up

Thanks for the reply, Nemo. I am running adb from the correct folder for sure (I don't believe adb would work at all if I hadn't pointed to the right directory first). I used the command line prompt, did a few cd's to get into the sdk directory, then typed the adb commands.

To clarify, adb works fine; it simply says there are no devices when I do the "adb devices" command. I tried disconnecting/reconnecting my phone, and I tried setting it to charge only. I verified that my PC sees the phone by transferring a couple of mp3 files back and forth successfully. But adb doesn't know about it for some reason.

My actual path is C:\Android\adt\sdk\platform-tools to get to adb, and that's what I set it to using the DOS prompt before typing the adb commands. Is there some directory-fu I have to do to point adb to my phone for it to be recognized? I thought that if my PC recognized it on the USB port, any application would see it. Is that not the case?
