Android Studio does not recognize my Sony Xperia T (Windows)


So first of all i'm using Windows 8.1 and the Phone i'm using is a Sony Xperia T and the Phone is running the latest "System Version". I already enabled USB-Debugging on my Phone and i downloaded a Driver from this Webpage: http://androidxda.com/download-sony-xperia-usb-driver. I do not know if this is the correct Driver, but it's the only really one i have found so far. (So please leave a link if you have found the right drivers). So my PC recognizes the Phone, but Android Studio is only showing the Virtual Device and not my Phone. So i do not know what to do and i would be glad if you could help me figure this out.

Thanks in advance.

It sounds like there is a special setting for the Xperia T you need to use. Please follow the link below and see if that works. If not, report back and I'll dig deeper.


Here's another one that might help.



Thanks a lot, Ron

With your help i could figure out what to do and now finally everything is working just fine.
