On my office PC (identical twins) I can get my photos transferred to my PC, on my home PC the phone doesn't give me the option of file transfer, only charging. I must be missing a setting somewhere.

Downloaded Kies 3 to computer and tried to hook up Galaxy S5?

After downloading Kies 3 to my laptop, I followed the instructions and hooked up my Galaxy S5 via a USB port. The screen showed the message, "Connecting" and then this message showed up: "The connected device is locked. Please enter a password on the connected device". The Galaxy S5 was upgraded to Marshmallow awhile ago (BIG mistake), and we are with Verizon.

Computer doesn't read photos on SD card in Samsung Galaxy?

I bought an SD card for my Samsung Galaxy to store my photos because I was always getting a message that my memory was full and I couldn't download emails or update apps. Now the computer doesn't read the photos when I connect with the original USB cable. Besides emailing all of them which takes forever, is the best way to remove the card and insert it into a card reader attached to the computer? I have tried: I explained it all. I think it was caused by: I think the computer, the SD card, and the cable do not speak to each other through the phone
