do you have it set to ask on connection? The easiest thing to do is connect as a mass storage device rather than with Kies for just transferring pictures.

That seems odd. I have never had my device fail to install as a mass storage device. Are you using the cable that came with the phone?

I mostly use Dropbox for transferring pictures or I store to my micro SD. I was also reading about SugarSync which automatically stores your photos on the web.

None of these solutions address the inability of your device to connect to a computer though and that would concern me.

Casz, found the problem by chance. My update settings were not on automated so it couldn't find the driver again. All done and pics dowloaded. Thank you for your help!

If you're using 2.2 (froyo),

1. Disconnect your USB cable from your phone.
2. Go to Settings > Wireless and network > USB Settings > Mass Storage
3. A screen should appear with an Android logo with an option to Connect USB, click it.
4. Wait for your Windows to download the drivers (if it's your first time connecting)
5. After a few seconds, a Removable Disk (mine is L:, not sure what yours is) should appear and you can open the files and drag and drop stuff from your PC to your phone or vice versa.

To check if you're using 2.2 or 2.1, go to Settings > About phone and check the Firmware Version.

Hope it helps Big Smile

When I go to Wirelress and network > there is no USB Settings folder.. Using 2.2

[Edit]: I have an SGS 4G

[Edit 2]: Found it! For SGS 4G = Settings > Applications > USB Settings > Mass Storage

I've spent ALL DAY trying to do this, but failed.  I refuse to accept that it's just me.  There are so many posts on this problem, that I cannot believe there is no straightforward fix.  Does anyone else feel let down by Samsung?  I have done all the things that have been suggested and nothing has worked.  I wish I'd never bought this phone.  Does anyone have any ideas?  My computer doesn't even recognise the phone exists, and the phone is about to take flying lessons out of the window!!!  Aaaaggggghhhh!
And just to clarify, I've done the USB thing, I've set it to Mass Storage, I've installed and uninstalled Kies (waste of space that was) and still nothing is happening.  My phone model is a GT-I9000, firmware 2.2.1
Any help at all will be appreciated!  thanks

Mine (Samsung Galaxy S3) won't let me view or download my video's either. I know they're in the same folders as the pictures but when I connect to my computer the folder shows no trace of video. It doesn't even count them in the number of files in the folder. I used to be able to download them no problem but all of a sudden, no dice. I also noticed that the MP3's I have on my phone are now trapped in S3 limbo as well. I should note that the phone has almost always refused to allow me to connect via MTP (an issue which has apparently never been resolved) and will only let me connect using the PTP option. This has never created any problem in the past so it's strange to me that it would all of a sudden become an issue.
