If your phone is not recognized by Samsung's Kies for the PC, then use a cloud based app to transfer the photos to the PC such as Google Photos or Microsoft's OneDrive. Depending on how much you want to transfer, you may have to use both apps to transfer. With these apps you can access them on the PC and then save them to your hard drive.

You can also purchase a memory card reader USB for the PC but depending on how old your phone is, the newer card readers will not recognize it. At least with the cloud apps, the transfer is free but more of a hassle because you will have to transfer them from the cloud's website on the PC to the PC hard drive to free up space.

You would install [www.samsung.com/ca/kies/ Kies] from Samsung's website. Then connect your phone to the PC after you have loaded up the Kies program. The program recognizes your phone and allows you to transfer and store on the PC.

Once you have connected the MTP to the phone and then the laptop, your phone should be able to be recognized. You would find the files by searching in the Windows Explorer field on the task bar, SCH-I535 \ Internal Storage (Phone). This will bring up your files. If you do not have the SCH version listed then put what version of S3 you do have. This would be listed in the About Phone section of your Settings menu on the phone.

You will also have to have the drivers from Samsung enabled on the Laptop for the phone to be recognized.

How do I download photos from my Samsung Galaxy S4 to my laptop?

I have plugged the USB cable into the laptop and selected MTP option as USB PC Connection. I select the 'Copy pictures to Picassa' option and then nothing happens. Note: The necessary driver has already been installed.

Samsung removed this option via USB. Instead now, you would select the share option on the photo to send to Picassa. Install the Picassa app and then it will show as an option when you choose the share button on the photo.

Samsung Galaxy mega, my laptop is saying there are no new pictures to download but there are?

Never had this issue with either phone or PC

Now with the Mega, you will have to use Kies to transfer photos. If you have not installed the proper drivers to transfer media then the PC will not recognize those files while searching.

How to transfer photos from my Samsung phone to my PC?

I have tried to transfer photos from my Samsung cell to my PC, but it tells me that it's using a different format.

Use either a cloud based app like Google Drive or the ones listed above. Kies should be recognizing your phone photos unless you have them stored in the wrong location. Check in the Camera settings to make sure that you are saving in the folder that you are looking for from the PC.

When I connected my mobile phone to my laptop I could not upload the photos from my phone to my laptop through Samsung Kies.
