When I connect the device to the USB port and type:

adb -d logcat I get,

- Waiting for device –
Error: more than once device and emulator
and the prompt hangs.

Is there any thing wrong with the command?

Thanks.

You have both an emulator running and the device plugged in. Your choices are:

-- Turn off the emulator

-- Pass the -s switch to adb to tell it which device to use

Thanks for your reply ..

I chose adb -d switch for the same reason. The help on it reads:
-d - directs command to the only connected USB device.Returns an error if more than one USB device is present.
-e - directs command to the only running emulator. Returns an error if more than one emulator is running.

Did I interpret it incorrectly?

Thanks.

I actually had not noticed the -d and -e switches. Given the error message you are receiving, I suspect they are not working properly.

To be honest, I usually turn off the emulator when I start using the device, so I have not used any of those switches much.
