Question about Operating Systems

JUST PURCHASED THE NEW SAMSUNG G600 MOBILE PHONE. HOWEVER THE SOFTWARE DOES NOT WORK WITH WINDOWS VISTA. I HAVE DOWN LOADED THE SOFTWARE, BUT IT CANT FIND THE PHONE WHEN I CONNECT IT TO MY PC. The Samsung G600 takes great photos. I have been waiting to load them onto my new PC (HP, which has the Vista Home Premium operating system only to find that the spectre of interoperability (or lack of) rears it's ugly head again. Why oh why are we offered the possibility of transferring files using USB that doesn't work with Vista?? Please resolve!

The Samsung software does not work properly with the G600 (take note Samsung) On your phone go to: Settings>phone settings>USB settings>Ask on connection. exit phone and when you plug in your usb it will ask what connection type, choose Mass Storage and it will appear on My Computer as a portable drive, you can drag and drop to folders. You may have to install the USB drivers from the disc or site, but it may work without.

Step 1: Connect your phone

Grab your phone and the USB cable that came with it. If you need some additional help setting up and using your new phone, see Windows Phone 6.5 basics for more information.
Step 2: Download the sync software for your computer

Choose the sync software for your computer's operating system, which you can download here:

  • • If you have Windows Vista or Windows 7, your sync settings will be managed through Windows Mobile Device Center.
  • • If you have Windows XP SP3, your sync settings will be managed through ActiveSync which can be downloaded from MS website.
    I hop this helps

My laptop does not connect with my mobile in samsung kies via usb cable. mtp usb driver installation fails.

Most probably is that your driver is not for the operation system that you now have in use..for example you used to have a Xp installed and now you have windows 7 or Vista ...what you have to do is look for an update on the Samsung support site ..for your model of phone ..and the operation system you use...or ..try this software ... Samsung pc studio ..and usually it works with all windows and all samsung phones that has a usb cable ..

The NPS Main error is quite common and well known problem by the Samsung. I suggest that when this happens you restart your computer, then your phone. After you have done this, try connecting again to your PC (it should not be necessary to click on "Search devices", if you need to there is still a problem).

If this doesn't solve your problem you can try to install an even newer version of New PC Studio (available under the GT-B2100). According to me, you need to go to the Samsung website and download the update software and the usb drivers for the phone , this should correct the crashing issue on the pc.

Uninstall and install again while the internet is connected. It would upgrade the PC studio after installation. The new firmware version IH8 is available through Samsung's New PC Studio which is currently only available for Windows users.

A new version of New PC Studio has recently been released, which has resolved this issue for many people. It can be found by visiting and going to the download centre. The new software only appears under the Tocco Ultra (GT-S8300) for the moment.

A step-by-step version of my solution is here:
1. Make sure you have administrative rights to the computer;

2. Install the USB Drivers from the CD ROM (remembering that this doesn't actually install them at all on an XP machine! I have no Vista or W7 environment to test with so I can't comment if the behaviour is different);

3. Connect the phone using the supplied USB cable and select PC Studio mode on the handset;

4. Bring up the XP Device manager (right click on My Computer, select Manage and click on Device Manager)

5. Find the SAMSUNG Mobile Modem entry which should be identified as being in error state;

6. Right click on SAMSUNG Mobile Modem and select Properties;

7. Go to the Details tab and note the bit of the string between "&"s that contains PID_xxxx;

8. Use Windows Explorer search to find the PID string for your phone in the c:\Program Files\Samsung directory hierarchy (should search all subdirectories) and note which USB Drivers sub-directory contains the string. (Mine was '3', yours could be different;

9. Go back to the Samsung Mobile Modem Properties panel (from Device manager) and select General tab;

10. Using the Install driver button to start the Hardware Update Wizard make sure the "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" radio button is selected;

11. Make sure the "Include this location in the search" tick box only is checked;

12. Click "Browse" and navigate to the directory identified at 8. above;

13. Click "Next" and hopefully the driver will be installed;

14. If Device manager reports a different device in error state then repeat from 9. for that device.

Hope this helps anyone who is stuck with this.

Samsung g600

Check if your batteries are getting hot when charging. If it is, then your charger is working. Maybe it is your battery.
If you want to store your files in your memory card, you can do so by inserting your card into a memory card reader.
I dont know if samsung is like motorola wherein, if the phone has a memory card and the connection setting for the phone is to read the memory card by usb. Then windows xp recognizes this as a removable storage device.
Or if you want to store files directly to your phone memory, you will need the software cd included in the box.

check the NOKIA site for compatibility issues for VISTA. VISTA has compatibility issues with many softwares (which may include the improper driver for your N 72)

You may need to download PC Studio from Samsung for your phone first and the phone is confused because its not installed. If you already have installed this app, remove and reinstall it as it may be a corrupted intallation. If all that fails call Samsung for further more specific help.

Driver Issues on Windows Vista Basic

As an adhoc solution you may try to download drivers for XP SP2, tell the driver installation applet to search for drivers from the folder you downloaded them to when it tells you this driver was not made for Vista tell it to install them anyway. It may not work but as this manufacturer is no longer in the modem biz vista is not supported by them at this time.
