Questions and Answers

When I connect my Samsung Galaxy S5 to my Dell laptop it only recognizes the camera, not the media. What can I do?

Also when I plug my phone into the USB port a window pops up so I click download and it fails every time.

Just like every other Android phone, your Samsung Galaxy S5 requires specialized drivers to be installed on your Dell Windows laptop in order for you to be able to transfer files back and forth between both devices. Since you have a Samsung device, installing these drivers -- and a great application that will help you sync, transfer, and backup your files from both devices -- is very easy. You will just need to download and install Samsung Kies 3 on your Dell laptop. Click here to download and install the latest version of Samsung Kies 3. Once the application is installed on your laptop, plug your Samsung Galaxy S5 into your computer, follow Kies' onscreen instructions, and then your phone will be connected to your laptop to allow you to transfer, sync, and backup files between both devices.

Connected Samsung Galaxy S7 to my Dell laptop and could not transfer pictures and videos to laptop, then mouse stopped working?

When I plugged in the Samsung Galaxy, to my Dell, it popped up on laptop screen saying,"charger was not supplying enough power. I plugged mouse and logitech drive into another laptop, an HP and all worked well. Was able to transfer pics from the Samsung Galaxy to HP laptop and mouse worked fine... Even called Dell, explained the situation and they cannot fix problem to make mouse work again. But mouse works on the HP laptop. What do you think? I am not sure if it is covered....have not read all articles to find a solution. I have tried: Called Dell to fix.
