Hi there,
There have been several post about people having troubles getting the Galaxy to show up in Test target of the IDE. Since I recently purchased an S4 I saw the problem first hand.

Pretty much the basic thing is to go get the actual drivers from Samsung do not use the generic ones.

After doing all the 7 tap thing and enabling USB debugging (see

For command line check go
cd\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools
type in "adb"
type in "adb devices"
Your device should show up, it does not have the word "emulator" but just an 8 character alphanumeric and possibly the word "unauthorized". If not, while you may well be connected via USB but not to the adb.

From the Device Manager
Mine at first was listed as a portable device (bad)
Once I had the correct drivers installed it shows up as
SAMSUNG Android Phone
SAMSUNG Android ADB Interface

Well that was kind'a easy
