Hi, the WiFi connection is excellent in my house, where I have a laptop; but I can't connect via USB in my office, where I have a desktop.

Samsung SideSync used to be a Samsung PC-only piece of software. However, it now runs on all Windows and Mac OS X computers. Make sure that you're running the latest version of Samsung SideSync 3.0 by clicking this link and downloading the latest version. You should also check the Google Play Store to make sure that your Samsung phone is running the latest version of SideSync, as well. Once both devices are up-to-date, restart them. Then, plug your phone into your desktop with a USB cable. If you are unable to share your Samsung phone's screen, there is a chance that your employer blocks certain features on your desktop which would result in your phone not being able to connect to SideSync to share its screen on your computer. Contact your company's IT help desk to ask them to allow you to use SideSync on your computer.

Just got a Galaxy Tab S, have Win 7 on PC?

Just got a Galaxy Tab S, have a Win 7 on PC. Have current version of SideSync on both devices. USB debugging enabled on tablet. Won't connect WiFi. Plugged in USB cable, THEN computer says it's connecting via WiFi, which I thought was supposed to be disabled on tab if you use USB cable. Still won't connect even if WiFi is on

Why the WWE app won't mirror to my PC screen or television when using SideSync 3.0?

I have the WWE app and I am attempting to use SideSync 3.0 (T-Mobile Galaxy Note4), and the sound plays without video. Researching this further, I found that it may be due to licensing issues with the WWE app. Was trying to find a reasonable workaround

My Galaxy S5 is having limited connectivity with my Toshiba laptop?

I can see the notifications and selecting one on the laptop brings up the app on the phone. But the phone screen will not show on the laptop, and it keeps saying "Connection failed." It appears not to recognize that I am connected via a USB cord, although the phone does show it is charging over that same cord.

Any ideas on what could cause a well working PC/Cell combination to stop working after an uninstall and reinstall on the cell?

I had an issue with Contacts not opening. Samsung S5. Error was:. Unfortunately, Contacts has stopped. . After trying many suggested fixes. I got to the point were I began uninstalling all the apps that could access Contacts. SideSync was one of them. I fixed my problem and began to reinstall my apps. Reinstalled SideSync but cannot get it to connect to my PC. It keeps connecting and disconnecting every second or two.. I have tried: Multiple uninstall and reinstall on both PC and Cell, checking setup. For example turning on USB debugging on the cell. I have not reinstalled the UBS driver on the PC. I might do that next although the Cell does connect to the PC Explorer and I can browse the file system.. I think it was caused by: Again the uninstall of SideSync on the cell.
