Kies program won't allow me to transfer a 2-hour music file?

Self explanatory, I think

- I guess not. Kies program on my Mac won't allow me to transfer a music file that is two hours long. Hopefully, my details section is long enough now?

You might have got a CD along with your phone. Insert that CD into the PC and then follow the instructions that show up on screen. You will have to "Agree" to the terms and conditions and then, allow the driver to install. Go on clicking "Next" on the dialogue box and click "Finish" on the final dialogue box.

More questions and answers

My pictures won't show up when I connect my Samsung phone via Kies?

What do I need to do? I have the Samsung Galaxy S4 and I'm trying to move my photos from my phone to my computer to get more space.

Just use the simple USB connection to be able to transfer your photos to your computer. This will be much easier and faster as well. In case this remains to be a problem, what you'd like to do is open and copy all of the photos you would like to transfer to your Dropbox account in your device and then open Dropbox from your computer to copy.

Won't let me Samsung Kies won't upgrade?

Transfer music from phone to a CD via computer

You have to transfer the files to your computer first and then to a CD. When you transfer to your computer, you have the option to do it wirelessly if you use apps such as Dropbox or you send the file via email. On the other hand, you can also use a USB cable to connect your device to your computer and then transfer the files.
