Failure to connect to physical device


I succeeded in getting the GeoQuiz app working on an emulator but after carefully following the directions near the end of Chapter 2, I can not get Eclipse to recognize my Nexus 10. It does not show up in the DDMS list and when I press “reset adb” as instructed I get the following error message: “DeviceMonitor] Adb connection Error:An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host”. Going to the developers site I

  1. verified that my 64 bit Windows 7 system had installed the latest Nexus 10 driver
  2. verified that I had the correct Google USB driver installed
  3. verified that the developer options on the Nexus are set correctly

I’ve done the obvious – rebooted all systems etc. but am stumped. Help welcome.


I am having the same issue.
