Dear Expert:

I have a Samsung Galaxy S smartphone and I have Eclipse + Android SDK installed over Windows.

I connect my smartphone to PC, and I can view the folder of my phone. However, when executing "adb devices" command, no device is detected.

Why ?

After installing Samsung Galaxy S drivers, it is detected by "adb devices" command. However, how can I use it inside Eclipse instead of the simulator ?

Since you have installed Eclipse + Android SDK, as well as Galaxy S driver, following steps you may need to use it inside Eclipse:

1. Installing Eclipse and the ADT plugin: “Help->Install new software”, click the “Add” button (top right) and fill in the name: “ADT Plugin” and the url “https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse/”, click ok and install the plugin(s).
Now go to “Windows->Preferences->Android” and Fill in the SDK Location “C:\android-sdk”.
You should now see a small android icon in the tool bar which will open up the SDK manager.

2. Creating a Virtual Device : Bring up the SDK Manager, by clicking the android icon in eclipse for instance, select Virtual Devices, and click the new button.
Chose a name (no spaces, will be the folder the name), a target (you can install more versions of the SDK in the SDK manager), a size for an SD card, the Skin should be set to WVGA800 (it’s actually a folder in “C:\android-sdk\platforms\android-8\skins” which contains the images and definition of the layout). Finally, click the “Create AVD”. Once created, you can “start” it to check that everything is fine.

Thank you, but I think this is for create VIRTUAL devices (i.e. on simulator). I want to use a REAL device (my samsung Galaxy S connected by USB). In there, it seems there is no sense to choice the size of the SD card, as it is physical.

Actually, developing android application using virtual devices (AVD) in emulator is more efficient (if you can config a accurate hardware profile), and it is more flexible. What you need is a AVD hardware profile same as Galaxy S. Normally, display resolution is most important.  (for Galaxy S , screen resolution is 800x480)

Of course you can test and debug on your android hardware
