IT SAYS THAT BECAUSE IF YOU DO IT WITHOUT FIRST INSTALLING SOFTWARE YOUR COMPUTER WILL AUTOMATICALLY FIND DRIVERS FOR YOUR PHONE TO WORK WITH THE USB CABLE, THEY MIGHT NOT BE THE SAME FORMAT THE PHONE USES, GO TO SAMSUNG.COM AND FIND YOUR PHONE ON THERE AND DOWNLOAD THE DRIVERS AND THINGS.

Why my pc can't charge my phone using a usb cord


Cell phones use the popular USB connection which sometimes produces errors while connecting. These messages are similar to the "Device Not Recognized" error received with various USB devices. Fixing a cell phone is sometimes specific to the brand, but they are so similar that most can be fixed the same troubleshooting steps.



Instructions

Device Manager

Click "Start" and go to "Control Panel." Double-click "System" and locate the Hardware tab to find the Device Manager. Vista and Windows 7 users can just type "Device Manager' from the start menu.

Locate "Disk Drives" from the list and double-click "Portable Device." If there is an exclamation mark or other error on the device, go to the "Drivers" tab.

Click "Uninstall" and remove the player. Restart the computer and attach the player reinstall the drivers.

Anti-virus conflicts

Plug the player into a different computer to see if it gets recognized. If it does not, contact the manufacturer to find out if it is broken.

Turn off your anti-virus program on your PC if the device works on other computers. Reinstall the drivers using the device manager as described in section 1.

Plug in the player to confirm the connection.

Other solutions

Check the battery level and make sure the batter is not low or depleted. A low battery will sometimes prevent the player from connecting. Let it charge from the power cord, if necessary.

Verify that you have at least Service Pack 1 installed. Go to the Start menu and type "Run." Press Enter.

Type "Winver" in the box and press "Enter." The Windows version will be displayed along with any installed service packs. Download a service pack from Microsoft, if applicable.

Remove the player from the USB port and push a pin into the reset hole located on the bottom. Reconnect to see if the problem is resolved.

Check the connection to make sure it's secure. The cable should fit firmly into both the player and the computer. Connect to a different USB port if you have one available.


Tips & Warnings

A bad cable will sometimes prevent a good connection. Use a different one to isolate the cause.

Got a new Iphone 3Gs and all seems to be ok but when I connect it to my pc all I get is a "iTunes cannot connect to this iPhone because of an unknown error". I'm hoping its something simple that I've just...


If your using a MAC try the below steps as this worked for me:

1. User - Library - Prefrences - com.apple.iTunes.plist
2. Delete that com.apple.iTunes.plist
3. Restart the computer. It should recognise.

If your using a PC the steps are lengthy, and the steps are:

Restore I-Phone
1) Close all programs and restart computer.
2) Open iTunes and plug in powered off iPhone with direct USB connection.
3) If iTunes fails to connect to iPhone...continue to #4, if it does...restore.
4) Shut DOWN iTunes again.
5) Power OFF the iPhone & Disconnect from computer. (Power off two ways-one will work, hold home and sleep button until off or just hold sleep button until off)
6) Hold down Home button & connect to computer using direct connected USB cable (keep holding down the home button until iTunes sees it).
7) It should go into recovery mode and iTunes should recognise it.
8) If you want to recover to previous software version, Hold Alt/Shift and click restore in iTunes. Then select the old update version.

If the above steps doesnot work then try the below steps:

1. Turn the iPhone ON
2. CONNECT it to the computer with a DIRECT USB connection.
3. Make sure iTunes is open so you'll know when it enters DFU mode.
4. HOLD the Power/Sleep-Wake button AND the Home button for 10 seconds.
5. RELEASE only the Power/Sleep-Wake button and continue to hold the Home button.
6. WAIT until iTunes recognizes the phone in DFU Restore mode (in Windows a bubble pops up saying it recognized new hardware "DFU Mode" or something to that effect)
The last step may take SOME TIME, like, say, even 60 seconds or so.
The screen should be OFF (black), if you see the "Connect to iTunes" logo, START OVER.
It may take a few tries to do the steps just right, just reboot
(hold both Power/Sleep-Wake AND Home until the Apple logo appears and the phone turns back on) then try again.
7. Then restore the iphone

-Plug one end of the cord into your phone and the other in your computer
-Remove the cord in your computer, leaving the cord in the phone still plugged in
-Hold both the home button and on/off button on the phone
-Once the screen turns off, let go of the on/off button but continue holding the home button
-Plug in the other end of the cord in your computer while still holding the home button on the phone
-Once the apple logo appears, continue holding until you see the plug into itunes screen on your phone
-Click restore.

Hope this should resolve your issue :)

HAVE PHONE, HAVE MEMORY CARD TO DOWNLOAD MUSIC; WHAT'S MY NEXT STEP?


plug the device up to the computer with the micro sd installed and open to view files.........next save the music to the music folder in DCIM. there ya go.....and if you have a micro - mini sd adapter then you can just pop it into your computer after you have formated it on your device. But remember that if you do it out of the phone you will have to format the card by going to the sd menu and selecting format.


GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST

SCH-u740 how do i down load musib from my PC to


If the phone doesn't come with a usb cord, then the easiest way that I've found is loading all the music to a micro SD card and just inserting it back into my phone. If your phone doesn't have a micro sd slot either, and you get internet on your phone, you have to find a mobile friendly download site, which are all over the place. Hope some of this helps.

I can't transfer files to upload pictures to my pc using usb cable


Go to Sony site and download the driver for your phone
http://ma3-origin.extranet.sonyericsson.com/drivers/
Step 1
Remove data cable from usb and put it into a different one
Step 2
Connect your phone to the computer with the cable and turn it on.
You might see "Found New Hardware" wizard. DON'T let Windows search for the driver; point it to the driver you just downloaded, and install the drive on your computer.
After the driver as installed you should be working 100%
