Help ADB Devices Command Not Working


Android Enthusiast
Aug 11, 2015
Hi Friends,
A buddy from work, he told me that he tried typing y C:Androidsdkplatform-tools), and finally got to run the ‘adb devices’ command, to no avail. Blank. No results. Updated drivers, updated the SDK, updated drivers again, reinstalled SDK, reinstalled drivers, rebooted several times along the way, still nothing. Tried following several other tutorials on what to do if ‘adb devices’ returns nothing, none of them worked. He doesn´t have an “Android Devices” listed in Device Manager. He only has “Mobile Devices,” under which the phone is listed. I tried searching for an answer for him, but I only confused myself even more, ha ha. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. :p
