USB driver for debugging on Motorola Android device

By  | December 2, 2013 | Filed under: Software development

I am using Android Studio for development, but I am sure this would apply to Eclipse and other IDEs.

The Android development guide (http://developer.android.com/tools/device.html) says that USB drivers are required for debugging on a device connected by USB.

I installed the USB drivers by going to https://motorola-global-portal.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/88481/action/auth and clicking Download for Windows.

I ran the downloaded installer to completion and then connected the device (in my case a Moto G). Windows said that software for the device were installing and now it appears in the list of connected devices when I try to run my application in Android Studio.

    Hi, Im trying to get a Moto G to work on PC’s and we need to have the Moto G drivers installed for us to be able to use Debugging on the netwrok. Is it possible to just get the device drivers for a phone without installing the software? Thanks Michael

      I don’t know. I was suspicious of installing the Motorola software but since doing so I haven’t noticed it. It’s invisible even when connecting the device. Why don’t you want to install it?
