How to Connect the Samsung Galaxy S (I9000) via USB

July 23rd, 2010 Leave a comment

    So, this week I bought the Samsung Galaxy S (I9000) so that I too could revel in the Android glory. I did a litte research before buying the phone and in the end I had to make my choice between the HTC Desire and the Samsung Galaxy S (I9000). I went for the Galaxy S because of the Super AMOLED, the 8 GB storage, and the bigger screen. Up until an hour ago I liked what I had.

    When I tried to connect the phone to the PC to access the SD card though, it didn’t really work. I tried changing a few settings and I even installed Samsung Kies which didn’t help either. Alright, a challenge then. I set my mind to the task and here’s how I finally managed to access the phone’s internal SD card on my PC running Windows XP. On Windows 7 everything just works so there’s no need to install or change anything at all.

    1. Install Samsungs New PC Studio for the drivers (Alternatively, you can try to locate only the drivers somewhere else on the web).
    2. Go to Settings – About phone – USB settings and choose Ask on connection.
    3. Go to Settings – Applications – Development and turn on USB debugging.
    4. Connect the phone via USB, choose Mass storage from the menu, slide the notification drawer down and select “Select to copy files to/from your computer”.
    5. Confirm the popup by pressing “Mount”.

    Now comes the important part because this didn’t work the first time.

    1. Disconnect the phone in the notification drawer und disconnect the USB cable.
    2. Go to Settings – Applications – Development and turn off USB  debugging.
    3. Connect the phone again as outlined above and now everything should work normally.

    That’s how I got my Galaxy S working. Everything else I tried did nothing at all – and I literally searched through lots of forums. As long as there’s a solution I don’t mind. Sure, it sucks big time but at least I didn’t have to contact support and wait days or weeks for a solution.
