I'm also rather new to this, but I can't seem to get the actual G1 device to show up when running "adb devices" on Vista. I don't know if this is the same problem or not. I rebooted my PC as well as the device. ADB is running because "adb devices" shows the emulator when it is running. All I have to do is connect through the USB, right? Vista recognized the device and thinks it downloaded the driver correctly. When I use File Explorer, I can look around on the device itself (although I expected a lot more than just three directories). Anyone seen this kind of thing before? Everything had been going swimmingly up until this point.

RichardI ran into multiple instances of the device as well.  Rebooting fixes it.  It sounds like adb is not properly removing the entry when the device is disconnected - I had the phone plugged in via USB and unplugged several times before reconnecting.

This was under XP too.

Al - I am running on XP, and seeing ADB behaving rather erratically with my G1.

It will sometimes show it online, as it should, sometimes show it offline, and sometimes show multiple (2-10) instances of it, all offline. Killing and restarting the server seems to render it temporarily sensible, but only temporarily. It rarely works for long enough to start a debug session from Eclipse, and often hangs Eclipse if I look at the Devices tab.

I have no idea how to fix it, but it seems to me there is probably something adrift in the G1 device driver. I'll let you know if I find any more.
