I need help transferring my photos from my Samsung Galaxy S5 to my PC?

When I connect my Samsung Galaxy S5 to my Windows XP computer and when I click on Media and then when I click on DCIM it says that "Files can not be opened directly from this device. Please copy the file to a local folder and then the copy." And when I do that on a new blank folder, and when I click on the blank folder, there is nothing and it doesn't show that I copied the folder. Do you know the reason why I can't just copy and paste my photos like what I would do with an older Android?

Your phone may be in the wrong mode. When you plug your Samsung Galaxy S5 into your Windows XP computer, look at your phone. There should be a USB icon in the notifications bar. Drag it down and tap on the USB icon and change it to the other mode. Unplug your device and replug it in and try to transfer your photos. If you're still unable to transfer your photos after switching the USB mode, you can download Samsung Kies 3 to easily transfer your photos and other files. Click here to download Samsung Kies 3. Do note download the original Samsung Kies; your Samsung Galaxy S5 is a newer handset that requires the latest version of Kies. Once Kies has downloaded and installed, plug your device in and follow the onscreen instructions. You will then be able to transfer your photos from your Samsung Galaxy S5 to your Windows XP computer.

You will go into the Gallery photo on your PC once you are connected to Kies and select those two images to transfer. Another option is to use Google Drive Photos, OneCloud or DropBox as cloud storage to send to your PC and then download and save from the PC once you log into their website.

How do I transfer files, photos, etc. from a Samsung S5 mini?

It seems impossible to transfer files from a Samsung S5 mini - photos etc - held in the phone's memory (not on an SD card) to my Mac Book Air. Any ideas?

Download the Kies for Mac from Samsung's website. You will be able to then transfer your photos using Kies.

I want to transfer photos from my phone Galaxy 5 to my computer?

When I connect my phone to the computer it does not make a change in my computer or my phone

Did you install Kies on your computer first? Because you would bring up the program on the PC and then connect your phone. If you phone is not being detected, run the troubleshoot program. It could be a number of things why your phone is not being recognized including that you are using the wrong Kies program for your device.

Problem transferring files from Galaxy S5 to Windows 7 computer?

I used to be able to do this, not sure what changed. I connect the phone to the laptop via USB. I choose the media files option (MTP). In Windows explorer I can see the thumbnails. When I try to view or try to cut/paste to a folder on Win7, it never completes. If I try to view it using Windows photo viewer, the 'loading' message shows for minutes until I kill it. When I cut/paste it tries, but nothing gets moved.. I have tried: See detail section above. I think it was caused by: I'm guessing the problem started when I enabled saving the photos to the Google (or was it Verizon) cloud.

I am unable to transfer photos from my Galaxy S5 to my HP Envy computer and I would like to know if there is some secret trick?

When I try to transfer them I get an error that simply says "something went wrong" but that is all it says. I have tried to transfer them directly using the USB cord, I have tried taking out the memory card and inserting it into the computer, I have tried to save the photos to different places, I have tried adjusting which connection method to use on the phone when it gives you options, and nothing works. This has been an ongoing problem for months now and is very frustrating, any advice or help would be much appreciated. I have tried: I put what I have tried so far in the previous message. I think it was caused by: I have no idea what caused this problem, I used to be able to upload pics but for the last 6 months or so I have been unable. I'm using the same phone and the same computer so I have no idea why it suddenly always gives me an error.

Picture folder in laptop un-accessed?

I cannot access my pictures I copied into the folder in my laptop and they are not longer in my S5 Galaxy phone. The folder is now written shortcut but cannot open. How can I recover my pictures? I have tried: Tried to go back to the phone but can't find them. I think it was caused by: I really could not think of anything, because I just highlight all my picture in the phone, cut them, created the folder on the laptop and past them. Then tried to open the folder while the phone still connected but no luck. I disconnected the phone from the laptop and put it back again but no luck.

Attempts to download pictures results in the message "no new photos are detected" etc and will not allow the download. Obviously, the geniuses at Samsung thought one would only need to download photos once, and perhaps not a backup onto a thumb drive etc?

How do I bypass this nonsense?

My phone is a Samsung 6.0.1 while this article is about Version 5? There does not appear to be an article attacking my Version 6. Will the fix be the same?

MY HP Elitebook 8460p does not recognize my pictures from my Samsung Android 6.0.1. I have 1000 pictures from a trip to the Alps this year I was going to use on a Christmas calendar. No can do. Help!. Thanks. Pat. My Android Samsung phone is a version 6.0.1 while the article approaches the problem of uploading pictures to the HP from a Version 5.0.1. I have tried: Downloading pictures through the computer that shows the phone as attached, but when I start the download, it stops and says there are no pictures to download. I think it was caused by: Is there a place to change the version of the picture? I wonder if the phone came pre-loaded with a version of the pictures on the phone as other than a JPEG file?
