Cannot transfer media from my Samsung Galaxy S5 to my PC?

The timer icon just spins continuously.

First, restart your phone and your computer, just to make sure that there aren't any applications that are causing the timer icon to spin continuously. Then, make sure you're running the latest version of Samsung Kies 3, not the original Samsung Kies. The original Samsung Kies is for devices that are older than your Samsung Galaxy S5. To download the latest version of Samsung Kies 3, click this link. Once Kies 3 has installed, plug your Galaxy S5 into your computer. Kies will open and you will be able to transfer your files to your computer. If you still cannot transfer your files, there may be something wrong with either your phone's charging port or your computer's USB port. Call Samsung to troubleshoot your device with them; it may be in need of a repair.

PC detects my Note3, but nothing happens when I click on it?

I'd like to transfer pictures from my phone to my PC. I plugged in my Note3 into my PC through the USB port. No auto-play window appears, so in My Computer, I see my device listed as a portable device. However, I click on it, and it appears to be empty. I right click to import pictures and videos, and get a message that there are no pictures or videos on this device. What is happening?

Why is my Note not detected by Mac or PC despite downloading Kies?

I have tried every method possible

If your Note is not detected by Mac or PC despite downloading Kies then it is likely you have a problem with the USB cable that you are using to connect one unit to the other. Try using a different cable to see I this is the issue. If not then it could be that you are dealing with a computer with damaged ports. Test this theory out by using a friend's computer to see if this is the issue.

If this does not work you can try uninstalling and reinstalling Kies to see if the failure to download was due to some kind of corruption with the program.

Unable to transfer a video from Galaxy S5 to PC.

Hi! My PC cannot detect all videos.

Always ascertain that the original S5 USB cable is used. As the article suggests, you can use the microSD card to transfer your video files. Before that, you may need to transfer videos from the internal memory to the microSD card by using any file manager like X-Plore. microSD card needs to be inserted into the card reader of your computer and may require an adapter from microSD to SD.

The other method, as shown in the article, is using Kies. You can use Kies 3. Click the "Videos" section on the left pane to browse for the videos.

The last method is using AirDroid to transfer your files. Check this answer to see how it can be done.

How to transfer pics or files from Samsung S5 phone to computer?

I have done this many times. I simply connect the phone to the PC with a USB cable and open an explorer program and drag and drop.

After upgrading to Android 6.0 this weekend, software g900vvru2dpd1, I can no longer access files on my phone from any computer?

Since the upgrade on the weekend, I no longer can access the internal memory or the SD card from my computer (tried two others as well). Strange thing is the phone is recognized by the computer, but I cannot drill down to the internal memory and SD card level.. I have tried: Restarting computer, restarting phone, have not tried a different cable.. I think it was caused by: Thinking it may have been the major software/firmware upgrade that was done this past weekend.

I have a SAMSUNG-SM-J320V with an SD card installed. My PC laptop cannot "see" photos on the cell phone?

There are many photos on that I can see in Gallery on the phone, and on the SD card, and in the Astro File Manager directory. When I connect the cell phone to my PC laptop to transfer photos form cell phone to laptop, the laptop file manager indicates that there are no files on the Samsung.
