Can someone tell me how do I get the ADB driver for my Incredible? I am unable to sync with my computer.
Are you specifically lookin' for ADB (acronym for Android Debug Bridge), or just havin' troubles w/ data synchronization?
HTC issued an update on 23 APR, which can be directly download via the links above. Also, some apps (i.e. pda-net) require users to check the box to "enable USB debugging" which is found by following the *menu/settings/applications/development* path from your HTC incredible's home screen.
Did you ever find the driver? I cant sync as sync cant find the phone nor does it show up in My Computer in XP. I hav the yellow question mark showing "unknown driver" for the ADB driver. The funny thing is everything works fine on an OLD machine running XP home & I can also see the phone on the Mac. Very frustrating to say the least!
I just got off the phone with support. They were able to help.
Go to DOWNLOADS and install HTC Sync Update for Droid Incredible, or use this link to download it: member.america.htc.com/.../HTC_Sync_2.0.33.exe
Install the update
After it is installed, connect your phone again, and you will not get that message again when the hardware is installing.
Thanks for the update Ned - I'll give it a shot later & report back:-)
That link doesn't work for me. It redirects to a download page with several choices, including:
Application - HTC Sync 2.0.40 (for Android 1.5 & 1.6) <-- Incredible is currently on 2.1, soon 2.2
Application - HTC Sync™for Android 2.1 or above <--page states it's for EU/APAC customers
HTC Sync 3.0 - New Feature Highlight: Media Sync. <--page states it's for EU/APAC customers
None of which appear relevant to the Incredible, running Android 2.1, for Verizon, in the US.
The ADB USB device driver is embedded in the HTC Sync device driver which you can download from HTC support after picking your phone. There are at least two issues confounding the search for the ADB driver:
First, on the HTC support page, it describes the product as syncing your Outlook calendars and contacts with your phone and says nothing about the ADB.
Second (and my need for the ADB is Android development), Google's very own SDK documentation describes very clearly how to download the driver via the Android SDK and AVD Manager (see developer.android.com/.../win-usb.html), but successfully installing it is where all my troubles began.
It is at this point where, if you were to connect your phone to your PC, Windows will detect "new hardware" and ask you to do either do a windows search for the driver or allow you to point to it. I did both, but when I explicitly pointed to the driver I downloaded from Google, Windows told me it couldn't install the driver because it didn't the hardware information it needed.
If you go to the HTC link and download the HTC Sync product the product is called "HTC_Sync_2.0.33.exe" and it is from "member.america.htc.com," i.e. just like Ned said.
Thank you. This worked for me. I didn't even install the Sync app (don't care about it, and it takes 44Mb of space) - I just bailed after the driver installation.
Hi James, I have the HTC Droid Incredible and I clicked on Ned's link and it didn't display my phone. I have Model ADR6300 and I need the driver. The disk they supplied with my Incredible doesn't furnish drivers, which I can't believe. Can you help? I have checked everywhere. Thanks.
Considering the End-of-Life of the device was March of this year (2011), they're no longer offering support for the Incredible 1. Basically, we have to find someone that has the file and can share it with us. :/
I found this for Verizon users: www.htc.com/.../downloads
The only USB driver for the HTC Inspire that I could get to work on my 64-bit XP was from here:
I've not been able to get the sync program to work at all. Also, the HTC download site installs a 32-bit USB driver.
