Updating theide drive
You're planning to change your PC hard drives, so you just unplug the old ones, plug in the new ones, and off you go, right?
Wrong: there's many a slip, and this month we aim to help you avoid all of them.
If you are developing on Windows and want to connect a device for testing, then you need to install the appropriate USB driver.
This page provides links to the web sites for several original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), where you can download the appropriate USB driver for your device.
Most computers have an option between a 5.25-inch Bay and a 3.5-inch Bay.
If you just want to browse the source in Git Hub, you can do that using the tools you are most comfortable with.
The Smart Things Community/Smart Things Public Git Hub repository is now public, allowing you to browse the source code in a more traditional format.
We have also provided an integration with the Git Hub repository into the IDE.
Once you've downloaded your USB driver, follow the instructions below to install or upgrade the driver, based on your version of Windows and whether you're installing for the first time or upgrading an existing driver.
Then see Using Hardware Devices for other important information about using an Android device for development.
However, modern motherboards may offer various connection options for drives, and if yours offers PATA (Parallel Advanced Technology Attachment) and SATA (Serial ATA) connectors, you first have to choose the most suitable drive.
