Default Questions about Android Phone Apps and SD card

I would like to be able to download apps directly to my SD card. I found some instructions online on how to set this up without "rooting". If you are familiar with the process I would appreciate some help. I got to the part where you are supposed to type the command "adb devices" but my phone does not come up. Why is this and what can I do? I would appreciate if you had a link to a troubleshooting page that already addressed this as well.

If you have a Samsung it simply can't be done. I have a feeling it's the same with other manufacturers if they aren't already set up for "app to sd". Even rooting won't get it done with a Samsung. There are ROMs that give app to sd functions and there is flashable software that gets the job done. Still no root, no app2sd unless the manufacturer has included it in the firmware.
