Question about Samsung C417 Cellular Phone

My SGH-c417 will not load over USB to my Laptop

Hello, eCommunity I am usually an expert on most driver related issues but for some reason I cannot get my wifes phone to instantiate the installed USB Drivers from samsung.
the driver I installed from here

Nothing ever shows up in an explorer window when I plug the phone into the USB cable and plug it into any USB port on my laptop... I try this same procedure with my razor and it completely works in 20 sec. but no luck at all with my wife's device. Any one have any ideas?

If you're using a USB cable to connect the phone to your pc that's the issue. There is no USB driver available for the C417, it was released with a serial driver only. From what I've seen elsewhere, the phone isn't compliant with USB.

I had "Memory full" on my SGH-C417 and first had cleaned all text messages - did not help. Next step was to check myMemory status in my Stuff. It shows free memory size and size of graphic data in your memory. I my case, free memory size was 0 and graphic data took all available memory. To resove the issue I went to Graphics in My Stuff and cleaned a lot of empty pictures - SGH may take a picture in your pockect, just because photo button, located on back side of phone, been hit by something, you put in your pocket.
