How do I transfer pictures from my Samsung Galaxy Tablet to my HP Windows 8 Desktop computer. Windows 8 does not recognize the device.


Music, movies, photos and more can be stored on the micro Secure Digital memory card on your Samsung Galaxy S phone. To get all those goodies on the microsSD card you need to transfer them from your computer. Connecting your Galaxy S to your computer is done with the USB cable that was included with the phone and doubles as the charging cable when plugged into the outlet adapter that also came with the phone.

Plug the large end of the micro USB cable into your computer and the small end into the USB port on the top of your Galaxy S phone. Wait for your computer to recognize the phone. If the phone is not getting recognized it could a driver problem. Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll through all of your devices or for Windows 7 click start right click on computer select properties in the left pane device manager scroll through all of your devices. If you see a yellow question / exclamation mark ? ! or a Red X you will need to update the drivers for this device right click select update driver/reinstall driver software Rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours. http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html Windows XP/Vista/7/8 This might take some time being a freeware driver solution Note: The Driver program will find all of your outdated drivers This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point. Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated. Press the "Power" button on the top right side of your phone, briefly. Unlock the phone by dragging the padlock icon to the top of the screen. Drag the notification pane down by touching the top of the screen and dragging your finger to the bottom. Touch the "USB Connected" notification and then press the "Mount" button. Your phone's microSD card will appear to your computer like an external drive. Click on the "Start" button on your computer and then click on "Computer." Double-click the drive icon that corresponds to your Galaxy S phone. This will open a folder that shows the contents of your phone's microSD card. You can copy files to and from the folder like you would any other folder on your computer. Click the "USB Device" icon in the task tray of your computer. Click "Eject USB Device." Wait until you're done transferring files before ejecting the phone from the computer. Unlock your phone and drag down the notification area. Tap the "USB Connected" notification and press "Disconnect." You can now safely unplug your phone. Hope this helps.

How do i use a memory stick


How to use a memory stick or USB
I will assume you are using windows. as you can see your USB memory stick has a metal connector with a plastic insert; that was made to fit in the connector on the back or sides of computers. the computer has several places to insert the memory but this device will fit properly in just the correct jack and it will go in in just one position, you can not turn it over and insert it.
after you do that windows will install the driver (software) for the device and it is going to open a window asking what do you want to do at this point you can click on any option but if you want to see your files or save files, click on the folder that says view files.
that opens the device, if it is brand new there would be no files. At that point you can drag all kinds of files in to the memory and store them.
the other option after you insert the memory, close the asking window and click on my computer from here you can see your memory stick, click on it and it will open, drag files to it or out of it in to your computer.
when you are creating documents or files you can save them in to your memory stick. Just click on file--save as--computer--memory stick (name or model)--save or ok.
when you are ready to disconnect your memory stick go to the clock area on the right corner, there is an icon of a connector with a green check mark click on that and then stop device, select your memory stick-stop, wait for confirmation and then you can unplug it >>>>failing to do this may damage your files or memory stick<<<<<<

if it works for you don't forget to rate me
thx

USB data transfer from old to new computer


You cannot directly link a Windows 98 computer to another computer via USB(without special hardware). The easiest way to do what you are trying to accomplish would be to hook both computers up to a router and share files over a network.

UNless you are using Windows 98 or Windows 95, a USB key will be detected as a hrad drive when connected to the system. You simply copy the files using MY Computer or Windows Explorer to the USB drive. When finished, the files are on the drive, and you can take them to another system.

You can also open the file, then use the SAVE AS function to select a different location (The USB drive) and copy the file that way.

If you are using windows 98, you'll need a software driver for Windows 98 to recognize a USB drive. The drivers are made by the USB drive manufacturer

Windows 98 USB Memory Stick driver


Most memory sticks require you to download a separate driver for use on Windows 98 machines. All driver downloads are free, and you can find a camplatible driver on the website of the manufacturer of your memory stick. For example if your memory stick is a Sandisk, you would go to the sandisk website, click on support, drivers and downloads, select your exact product and select the correct driver from the list provided.

On some memory sticks there simply aren't drivers available for windows 98. Lets hope this isn't the case. If you want me to look for the driver and provide a link, give me the manufacturer and model number of your memory stick and I will be glad to help.

Good Luck!
