Welcome to Vodafone Community
As it says really.
I have been trying to download some photos from my s2 to my pc but would like to use the data cable if possible as i just don't trust wi-fi
WIndows does a CDC serial search but cannot find any drivers or whatever they call it to load so I can do it
Can anyone help please?
Have you you got samsung Kies installed?
That should install the drivers for you........ and then you can just connect it with the usb cable
You need to go into wireless settings then USB settings and select massstorage go back to your desk top plug in your phone it should show up a android robolt and a box that says USB storage press If you do not press this it will not work
now windows will look in the Kies folder and find the drivers and instal them and it will open two drives just like a USB stick the folders were your pics are are in DCIM
Now if windows does not see the phone then you need to open your device manager and you will see yellow !
Right click and unistall then try again
I operate windows Xp on my main computer and windows 7 on my laptop - samsung have been no help whatsoever. very disappointed.
Right if your not wanting to use wifi then the only way is your windows 7 machine as explaned it uses the MTP protacl which was first used on windows Vista. Now manufactures don't have to give support for XP any more some still do mass storage uses the PDA type of accses
Here is a fix to try Only on your XP Machine
It uses a PDA program and seems to work
Down load from here http://junefabrics.com/android/download.php
The 32bit version
When you run the program it installs all the drivers you need,Let it finish.
Now on your phone set it to Mass storage then plug it in and Xp will do the rest and if all goes well You should get two windows open, as two extra drives and away you go.
