i got as far as step 5... have no idea what he's talking about after that... nothing installed... big FAIL!
5. After doing that, Windows will install 3 drivers. One might fail so you will have to install it manually. To do so, right-click on My Computer, select Properties and go to Device Manager. You will see the missing driver with the exclamation mark near it. Right click on it, select Update Driver, and browse for the Android SDK folder on the desktop. In that folder select the usb drivers folder and it will install it (all this is done in Windows 7; Vista might be the same).
I had the exact same problem but I can't remember quite how I solved it. I needed to download a new version of Java to install the SDK. I downloaded it from Download Free Java Software - Sun Microsystems
After that, I think I had to download the driver library seperately from the Android SDK site - USB Driver for Windows | Android Developers
Somehow I did get this all working and the SDK installed. I wish I could remember in the exact order.
i have the updated java thing... but still don't see the "drivers"... tried to find the link to download on the sdk site but all i got was a whole bunch of "Eclipse" stuff.... i have no idea what i'm doing...
Eclipse? That's weird...I thought I had pasted the wrong link in there!
I re-read the USB driver link...if you get the SDK installed, then you should be able to choose the driver package from the list of packages. Did you try re-installing the SDK since you have Java?
The guy who wrote the article solved it! I got my stupid papaya farm to save on my SD!
Lorin Bute Sorry about that. The drivers get extracted if you install the sdk. Just run the installer and they will be there. Also, you might be able to find them as a separate download on the sdk webpage.
Let me know how it goes. I can upload the drivers later if it doesn’t work.

There’s a SDK Setup.exe file in the SDK folder. Run that and select only the usb drivers.

i double clicked on the SDK Setup icon and error message popped up:
“Failed to fetch URL https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/re...repository.xml, reason: HTTPS SSL error. You might want to force download through HTTP in the settings.”
What am i doing wrong!?!

When the list of available packages to download appears (in this case the window with the error message), close it and in the previous window go to Settings and select “Force https:// … sources to be fetched using http://…“. Close and try again.
