Is Windows 8 & This Phone a Nightmare? File Sync Copy? Driver Update Fails

view story

http://forum.xda-developers.com – Stock ROM. JB 4.1.1. Rooted. Windows 8 Pro 64-bit. Had the phone 3 weeks. For the most part the external Sandisk 32GB SD card has worked fine. I use MediaMonkey to sync my music. However I noticed more than once that even though the phone and card show up in Windows Explorer there were occasions where I Windows Explorer would either crash (stop responding) or say it couldn't copy a file from the computer to the SD Card on the phone. I think I rebooted Win 8 or unplugged and plugged in the phone to get it to work. Interestingly, if you install the latest drivers from the Samsung Site (HowTos)
