    can you be more specific? how do you know it is not working? what are you trying to do? what device do you have? are you trying this on a pc or mac?

    just remember the more details you give us the better we can help.

    mikedt 你好

    Could be the YouTube and online guides are incorrect for the particular phone or tablet you're using?

    What device actually got there? We might be able to help you more.

    well the first step is to actually get adb installed on the pc right

    i have adb-setup-1.4.3 but it doesn't work

    i hit run and it doesn't do anything, i hit run as admin and its still spinning

    Try downloading the lastest platform tools here, if you haven't.

    Do you have USB debugging enabled in the developer options on your device?

    Okay, well you can't use adb without enabling usb debugging in developer options. So it's either blocked on your device or you're not looking in the right spot:
    Settings>About Phone>Software Information

    sorry but i can't understand the video, so what commands are you trying? when you say run with adb, there is nothing to run. you open up a command window and enter adb commands. what commands are you trying?

    edit: are you sure you are using the command path correctly?

    So what happens now when you connect the device to your PC. Does it give you a notification about USB debugging?

    What happens when you run the command adb devices ?

    Make sure your screen is unlocked when you do this the first time. You may need to authorize the PC via a pop-up on the device screen.

    Can you run the command again and post a screenshot of your command prompt?

    That's good. I think that was installing drivers and stuff. Try adb devices again and take a screenshot of the command window
