I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 SGH-T999 (running 4.3) that I have been using with Windows 7, XP, and Vista machines as a "media device" without Kies; I simply plug it in and use it as a drive. When plugged in to those machines, the phone says "connected as media device"...
I recently replaced the 7 machine (Dell Optiplex 745) with a brand new Dell XPS8700 with Windows 8.1.
I have tried my best to get my device recognized as a drive and not a media player or music device but after allowing usb debugging and developer option on...it continues to only be recognized as a media player device with no drive letter ( ).....
Does anyone know what else to do without rooting?
I seem lost with the rooting and unrooting with no promises that my device won't become a Brick!
I have a problem with the system detecting my Sony Walkman NWZ-E436F. When I plug the device, the player's screen says 'Connecting'.
However the device is mounted as removable device.
Is it possible the aforementioned device to be recognized as an MTP device by rhythmbox automatically when is connected to the PC?
I recently purchased a new laptop that came with windows 8.1 . When I first got the computer I tested that when I plug in my HDMI cable into the computer and connect it with the TV, the TV is recognized as an audio playback device, which can set to default (I checked this because the last laptop I bought this did not work, just like now, so they exchanged it with this one).
Hello everyone, can I ask a quick question about a Samsung phone? I cannot get Windows to recognize the phone when I plug it in. It says "USB Device Not Recognized" and I cannot find a driver online to get it to see the phone. It belongs to my nephew, he said it had been rooted, and he accepted an over-the-air update from BoostMobile and now its pretty hosed up.
I'm running Win XP SP3 and every time I plug the USB cable into my computer, XP displays that the USB is an unrecognized device. Therefore I can not put any files on my phone. Is this a common issue? Am I missing crucial drivers?
I have also tried using HTC Sync Manager but it still will not recognize my phone.
