I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 that I would like to deploy my app to using eclipse. However the device simply does not appear on the list of devices to deploy to.
I am using Windows 7 64-bit.
The phone appears as a drive when plugged in, allowing me to transfer files to and from the device.
The phone has developer mode and USB debugging switched on.

You may need an OEM driver, not the google USB driver. Some people say installing Samsung Kies (I think you'll need Samsung Kies 3 actually) gets you that driver for free. Or you might try the Samsung site, as listed here: http://developer.android.com/tools/extras/oem-usb.html

Sometimes it helps to simply open the DDMS view. I don't know why it helps, but sometimes it just does. If you open DDMS and your device appears in the list in DDMS, it should then also appear in the list of devices for running the app, even if it wasn't there before opening the DDMS view.

Make sure your device is not appeared as

If so, you need to update the latest driver and SDK, then re-plugin the cable.
If there is a
Allow USB debugging window pops up in your phone, everything will go right.
I know this may not be possible for everyone, but I changed my USB cord and it worked. Don't really know why because the other one would charge my phone and say I was connected.
