    "adb devices" works but "adb connect" fails (Nexus 1, both winXP 32bits and Ubuntu)

    Hi all,

    First post (Maiden voyage?). Welcome to myself :-)

    I have received a Nexus 1 phone as my development testbed, but I am somewhat stuck in getting started since I can't connect to it.

    On the phone itself, which has the Gingerbread 2.3.3 version, I have "USB Debugging" on.

    I see the following behavior on both Windows XP 32bits, and Ubuntu 11.04 64 bits:

    Code:
    C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools>adb devices
    List of devices attached
    0123456789ABCDEF        device
    
    C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools>adb connect 0123456789ABCDEF
    
    unable to connect to 0123456789ABCDEF:5555
    
    C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools>

    I am pretty sure that the USB configuration is OK in both operating systems, and I have not met on my web searches a scenario where "adb devices" would work whereas "adb connect" fails.

    Does anyone have an idea of how to overcome this issue?

    Thanks,
    Ron.

    Something more:
    Doing activities with "adb -d" seems to work - if it is the ONLY device connected.
    But if I have multiple devices connected (which I do), it is impossible to select one, unless connecting to it via TCP. ("adb connect x.y.z.w").
    This was not the behavior when I tried to connect to a XOOM tablet I own, or at least it wasn't in Linux. (It's my first attempt at Windows)

    Any clue?

    Thanks,
    Ron

    Unfortunately, I've never had to connect to multiple devices so I've never experienced this. When I get time I'll have a play though, and let you know what I find (may not be in the immediate future)...

    Thanks.
    So the way you use adb is always with "-d" ?

    Nope, just "adb <command>" plus any switches, etc...
