I've got a weird one for you guys...
When I plug my phone into my computer it begins charging but won't show up in Eclipse as a valid running Android device. My program works just fine in the emulator, but I can't test it on my Droid.
This seems to have occurred after Gingerbread was released. My phone got the update and if memory serves, this is when it quit working. I was developing primarily on the Emulator at the time, so I can't be sure. My phone shows Android version 2.2.1 though, which is further puzzling me as I assumed it would show v2.3. It's a Motorola Droid (the original one).
I upgraded the SDK through Eclipse and while it still works fine through the emulator, it patently refuses to recognize my Droid when I plug it in. I need to do some final testing on an app that I'm about to publish, but I'm at a standstill until I can use a physical phone.
I haven't yet tried downgrading to v2.2, maybe that's my solution. I suppose it's possible that the old Droid just can't handle Gingerbread and is thus incompatible with the upgrade. Just thinking out loud here, I'm really hoping someone can give me a better answer.
Has anyone else seen this?
Thanks in advance!
