Questions and Answers

I installed Samsung SideSync 3.0 to my Samsung PC and Samsung Galaxy S4. I cannot click photos from phone and drag to PC.

Make sure that your phone and your PC are on the same WiFi network. SideSync won't work if your phone is using mobile data. If both of your devices are on the same WiFi network and dragging your pictures still doesn't work, uninstall SideSync from your PC and your phone and then reinstall the app to make sure that you don't have a corrupted install.

How do you get WiFi connection working?

I have a Galaxy S4 and a Windows 7 (cat6 to the router) and I cannot sync SideSync 3.0 using WiFi. USB works fine. The PC side says, "Please check the WiFi network status" and the S4 says, "This connection has timed out." Already tried turning off firewall (Norton).

Using SideSync, I can't drag and drop pictures from my phone to my computer?

My phone is connected to my laptop through SideSync and I can move files from my computer to my phone but I can't figure out how to move pictures from the phone to the laptop. When I click and hold on a picture using the mouse on my phone screen it just clicks it like it would by tapping the picture on the phone.

SideSync Samsung GS5 cannot transfer photos?

I have SideSync on both my computer and my GS5. Can't figure out how to copy/paste photos. I have tried: Installed on both computer and phone. Watched a file transfer video on YouTube. I can see the phone on my computer. When I long hold on a photo, it checks the box green.. but then I don't know what to do. Doesn't drag or give me a copy option. I think it was caused by: I don't know

Hi Daniel. That would be kind, thanks. I've installed SideSync and both HP desktop and Galaxy J5 are in "sync". However, no "copy" picture of the phone comes up on PC and there are no icons to drag and drop files. The only thing that comes up on the screen is to notify me when updates have been installed on the phone?

Screen on PC below on right-hand side window of SideSync has just notified me of new e-mails
