Have you installed Kies? If not, download it here and install it. Then connect your device -- you should now be able to transfer your pictures and videos from your Tablet to your Laptop without any issues.

Having problems transferring photos from my Samsung Galaxy S4 to my new Windows 8.1 computer?

When I use my Samsung USB cord and connect to the tower, a file comes up on my computer that says it can't download the pictures. What's the easiest way to get all my photos off my cell and into my desktop. I used to use a program called HP Photosmart that was so simple as soon as I plugged the UBS cord into my computer, the HP program popped up and automatically transfer the pix off my phone. Any idea why I can't get that to work anymore?

Connected Galaxy S4 to win 7 via USB. Win not recognizing S4. The transfer software was just updated a few minutes ago. Do I need to reboot? The install panel did not say to do that?

If you are experiencing problems connecting your Samsung Galaxy S4 to Windows 7 using a USB as it is not being recognized by your device then you can try to connect your phone using a different USB port. If that did not work then you can diagnose and fix Windows 7 problems by doing a troubleshoot here:

You can then proceed to install and open Kies3, unlock phone with PIN, connect from phone to PC as a media device, click on Tools menu in Kies3, and then choose `Reinstall device drivers`. Another dialogue box would then open and then the drivers would be successfully installed. Windows 7 will now be able to recognize your Samsung Galaxy S4 which will make you access your phone files with the help of Kies3 and Windows Explorer.

My S4 is seriously low on device memory & I MUST fix that by moving pictures & pdf to PC?

Some of these options, as in Kies I can't do since I don't have enough space to get the app. I was able & did get Airdroid so maybe I don't need your assistance. Give me your opinion.I want to move HUGE # of PDFs that are things I have downloaded to S4, having no clue that this could happen. I understand that now apps can't put stuff on SD card & I have a mostly empty 64mb SD card in S4- anyway I can move things there?

I plug my S4 into the USB and it charges instead of allowing me to turn it into a media device like in the past?

Two weeks ago Samsung did a force update and ever since then I have had trouble. Currently I am 4.4.3.

Samsung S4 phone, copying to PC (XP) intermittent errors?

Often when I connect to my Samsung S4 phone, I can successfully back up for a while, then S4 'chokes' esp. on larger files (PDF etc), it only copies partially, then an error message says 'file is in wrong format', and the copied file has only copied a hundred or two Kb of the file. I can pull my USB cable, the windows window opens, prompting me to 'open files & folders', and I can copy a few more, etc. the prob gets progressively worse, and fails more quickly as I re-connect to my S4
