Samsung PC Studio and compatible phones

Q: Samsung PC Studio and compatible phones

I have searched the internet and this forum, plus other cell phone forums, but cannot find a list of Samsung phones that are compatible with Samsung PC Studio 3.

Can someone direct me to the right place for this info?
Thank you!

Preferred Solution: Samsung PC Studio and compatible phones

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I plan on swtching wireless carries but I need to find out if I need to purchase a new phone.

I have a Samsung Cell Phone that has AT & T logo on the outside. Can this phone be
used on a T-Moble wireless cell sevice or will I need to get a new phone if I switch to T-moble
wireless service.

Thank you,

A:Samsung Cell Phones, Can they be used with any provider?

If it's got an AT&T logo then it's *probably* locked to AT&T. Not certainly, but my experience has been that unlocked phones aren't branded with a carrier. (At least those that are purchased as unlocked. I understand that there are authorized unlocking procedures for some phones, but there aren't for all phones so your best bet would be to check with both AT&T and your new carrier about your specific phone.)

I have a Dell Studio XPS 435MT Desktop computer. It is running W7 on 64 bit with an I7-920 CPU. I am looking to upgrade the RAM from the current 6 GB it has installed.

It has 6 slots. Is the maximum capacity 12 GB or 24 GB.

It currently has 6 1GB sticks with PC3-8500 DDR3 1066MHz.

I also have tried successfully Two 2GB STicks of Kingston DDR3 1333, PC3 10600, 667 MHZ.

On Crucial it states:

DDR3 PC3-10600, DDR3 PC3-8500, DDR3 PC3-12800
Memory Type: DDR3 PC3-10600, DDR3 PC3-8500, DDR3 PC3-12800, DDR3 (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 24GB
Slots: 6
Each memory slot can hold DDR3 PC3-10600, DDR3 PC3-8500, DDR3 PC3-12800 with a maximum of 4GB per slot.*

Does 4GB work in one Module or is the max 2GB per slot. What RAM configuration would work best? I hope someone can give me a few answers to my questions. Thanks.

Hello again.

Quite a long time ago, on my old Windows Vista, I used Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 to create applications just for fun. I really liked it and would like to use it again, however I would like to use Microsoft Visual Studio 2010. The reason I would rather use VS2010 is because earlier today (11/01/2015) I installed VS2012 and I didn't like the look and feel to it at all, and VS2013 has a similar look to it and I don't like the layout, and I prefer the layout of 2008/10.

I have 2 main questions about this version of VS (2010 not 2008 because that's practically life expired).
The first question I would like to ask: Is VS2010 compatible with Win8? Preferably VS2010 Express as that's the only version of VS2010 that's available and I saw on Microsoft Compatibility Center which said that it is compatible, but 2 of 3 people said it was, but with Visual Basic (which I don't generally want as I would like more features than just VB) had 9 of 10 people saying it's compatible.

My second question is: Does Visual Studio 2010 Express have enough features for what I would like to do? Here's a brief idea of what I would like to do in VS2010. I would like to create a program which deals with things which involve using databases (such as POS systems) and I would like to setup a program which includes Windows Forms to complete tasks. I saw a video of what I would like to do which I'll post below and that should give a general idea. I'll only post the Part 1 of that series as ther... Read more

... and when I say all, I literally mean Real Player streamings, YouTube videos, the XP start up music, mpegs, mp3s, etc. PC Studio 3 is the interface program for my new mobile phone. I put this query in this forum because it seems to be quite a global problem on my computer. Get this: When I try to use system restore, it has created a restore point at the time I installed the software, but I get the warning message when I try to select that date and press next that reads: "Changes made to drive(s) D: after this point cannot be reversed because the drive was either excluded from System Restore monitoring, or it was turned off or removed." This is a lie because drive D: is my only hard drive and System Restore has always been turned on on my PC. Originally, the Samsung software had caused my computer to crash over and over again, bringing up a blue screen then shutting down. I uninstalled it and the skipping media is what is left. Please can you help me with any suggestions. Really what I need to know is what drivers do I need to reinstall to sort out the skipping media, or do I need to wipe my computer off and re-install XP? Thanks very much.

I have an 8 year old PackardBell which has been enough for my limited uses (I don't play games or other high power needing programmes). I do use it for connecting with my microscopes, and as it has USB1 ports that makes imagery a bit slow etc. Now, the
monitor caught on fire, which I replaced with a Samsung 2233SW, which I have no trouble with. I need to buy a new PC tower, as it really has had its day, which I guess will be Windows 7, but I need to buy one that is compatible with the Samsung(I don't
want to buy another screen when I just bought one a year ago) which has VGA connection. I need a sugestion as to which PC Tower I need that is compatible, and one that has at least 5 USB2ports - with  two or three USB2 ports preferable at the front
(the USB leads from microscope cameras seem ridiculously short). My budget is about $A600. many thanks,

I am using WIN2000.

I read that there are some issues with A,C or S Samsung 226BW displays, that can be fixed with a special file that can be downloaded online.

I see that the file download comes with instructions on how to install in Vista or WinXP. Would I be able to use the monitor, and maybe the file if necessary on my Win2000 machine?

I am comfortable with Win2000 and don't want to go through the upgrade.

Thank you very much.

I'm looking to upgrade / replace the original hard drive in my Studio XPS 1640.  I have decided on a 1TB Samsung SSD 850 Evo, but - without opening up my laptop an extra time - I don't know which format is compatible:  the 2.5" SATA III or the mSATA?  I'll greatly appreciate if someone can tell me which of these SSDs will work with my laptop.

A:What type of SSD (2.5" SATA III or mSATA) is compatible with my Studio XPS 1640?

You need a 2.5" SATA drive -- there is no support for card-type mSATA or PCIe drives in this system.
The SATA controller is 3G, so you'll not see the full performance of a 6G SATA drive -- you'll get only half of what the drive can sustain -- but a SATA SSD will work with the system.
The system is designed for a 9.5 mm hard drive - you will need a spacer to mount a 7 mm SSD (some drives from Samsung and Crucial include these;  if yours doesn't they're just a couple of dollars).

Hey guys,  I have the Lenovo Ideapad 520 (80YL00RXIN) and wanted to replace the CD Drive with the Samsung 850 Evo 250GB Solid State Drive  in order to increase the Boot Speed and over-all speed of the laptop.  So, the question is, Is the Samsung 850 Evo SSD compatible with my laptop? And will it fit in terms of size, in place of the CD Drive? Also, is it recommended to add the SSD? Any downsides to doing so?  Lastly, will I, someone who knows the basics about computers and the internal components of a computer, be able to install the SSD myself? Or would I rather outsource it to someone who deals in things like this? Thank you. Regards,Neel.

I recently bought a samsung portable hard drive from the M3 series with a 1TB storage capacity.

My computer currently runs on Windows 8.1, x64, 4GB RAM and a 3Ghz processor

When trying to install "Samsung drive manager" or any of the other software that came with the hard drive - I receive the following error message "This runs on Windows XP/Vista, Windows 7, please check your OS".

I have tried to install the "Samsung drive manager" from the Seagate website, thinking that it might be compatible but I receive the same error message.
According to the Windows compatibility website and Samsung/Seagate, the M3 hard drive is compatible with Windows 8 (Note, I have Win 8.1, but is there really that much of a difference?) I ran the software bundle on my old laptop (Windows 7) and it worked fine, so that excludes any issues with the actual hardware
Anyone with a similar problem or solution?

(Just posting this here so people in the future can find it.) I replaced my motherboard and just wanted to leave this here for future reference to some poor soul who has to do the same.
If you replace the motherboard on your Dell Studio XPS 8000, (service tag 3L8DHK1) and you need a new motherboard you can use an INTEL DQ57TM, it's compatible and I did a successful transplant. Your processor is an INTEL Core-i5 750 CPU 2.67GHZ it uses a SOCKET LGA1156. It uses DDR3 memory.
Once you take out your old motherboard and disconnect all those usb and audio wires and the power button wires. To hook up your USB front jacks, audio jacks etc.... here's which blocks go where:
Wires from the audio jacks and usb ports go into these colored block connectors, and those connectors get plugged into those little rows of pins/jumpers called Internal Headers. Every motherboard manual tells you about them. Grab the manual for your new motherboard and it'll tell you where your audio1, usb1, usb2, usb3, usb4 Header connectors are they look like 2 rows and 5 collumns of short little pins. (They almost always have 1 or 2 pins missing on purpose.)
the wires leading to a YELLOW BLOCK gets plugged into the audio1 header on your new motherboard, it's for audio jacks on top of the computer
wires with the WHITE BLOCK gets plugged into the usb3 headers on your motherboard (they are for the usb jacks on the very top of the computer tower)

I currently have a Studio 1737 with a 500GB SSD, Windows 10, and recently bought a Studio 1749 with a 750GD SATA HD, Windows 10.

I'm wondering if it's possible to just switch the SSD with the SATA to the new laptop, or if I should go through the process of making a recovery USB, install the SSD to the 1749, reformat and reinstall Windows 10.  
I'm not really relishing the idea of losing all my programs with the reformat, especially since I have long since lost the registration keys, etc. for most of the programs.
Any suggestions?

A:Best way to move Studio 1737 500GB SSD to new Studio 1749 running 750 SATA

At a minimum, Windows 10 will require re-activation -- which Microsoft likely won't allow (moving an installed copy to a new system is not part of the license agreement).  While you can TRY moving the drive, chances are you're going to need to do a full reinstall of the OS once it's done.

I've always been a fan of the Sennheiser HD series
Sennheiser USA - Dynamic Stereo Headphones - Around / Over Ear Headphones - High Sound Quality - Audiophile - Personal Audio

They also will supply replacement chords and even drivers should one go bad.

I actually have a pair of those sony's the bass is hollow and has no punch to it at all. I actually have a 35 dollar plantronics headset that has better sound. The chord tangles easily and the pads started to come apart eventually. ...at least they're apparently cheaper now when I bought mine around 4-5 years ago, they wanted 120 for them. ...oh also I had to cut splice and tape the chord 3 times before I finally retired them.
All of this occurred in about the space of a year.

edit: wasn't paying attention to your price range.
The HD280's are decent, not quite in the audiophile class, but decent and can be purchased for the same neighborhood in cost.
that was just the first link I came by I have seen them for 80.

Your best bet is ebay and finding the part number to find a board, that's how I got the one I used to fix it.

Problems on initializing Samsung 80GB with Samsung's Disk Manager: Ontrack(tm)


There is some problem on my 80gb Samsung HD. The situation is this:

I have had an old computer which have an ancient motherboard.. because of the limitations of motherboard it was initializing Hd as 8gb.. I installed Samsung's Disk Manager program named Ontrack. It does something with the MBR to make the 8gb initialized HD as 80gb! When you're in bios setup, it says your samsung is 8gb but when you reset and wait for the system disk error message Ontrack activates and then your hd is 80 gb, you can install OS after that.

Here is the problem: I bought a new computer whose motherboard to initialize my 80GB hd as 80GB also, but things didn't happen like that. On bios setup it says my HD is 33gb.

I plugged the HD to my other computer and its partition magic 8 says "33gb BAD" also..

A modified MBR by a program (ontrack) can fool bios setup? if so, can i use XP CDs system recovery console with fixmbr command? ?f it is not how can i make my hd back to normal (not for old motherboards, initialized as 80GB)??

New motherboard is MSI RS482M2-IL and because of this problem I cannot enable S.M.A.R.T. feature. I need help and thanks from now on!

Trying to install Samsung SmarThru office V2 for my printer/scanner, but Windows 10 reports the signer of the executable is not trusted, I downloaded from the Samsung website and the signer is shown as Samsung.

There seems to be no way to bypass this, anyone have a clue whats going on?

So it means you tried advanced startup setting to enable installing of unsigned drivers?

Because for me SmartThru 4 installs fine, (all Win10 updates installed), but ->
* I can't install old print driver (says hash file missing, maybe tampred or corrupt).
* I can install universal print driver & scan driver
* After opening, ST4 is unable to recognize scanner.

Good day. I have ask your help, with those two software.
I have found they are installed but when wanting to remove or uninstall them, I do not find any on the Programas and Feature, on the Control Panel.

I have some concern cause I have notice these running in the background. I have never uses these programas, nor have need of them.

Is it possible to delete or uninstall theses two software without affecting the performance of Windows 10, and in general of my VAIO Laptop?.

Thank you for your assistance. Looking ofrward to your response.

I have both Linux and Windows Vista installed on my notebook. Today when I turned it on I accidentally chose "Samsung Recovery" instead of "Windows Vista" in GRUB. After Samsung Recovery has loaded, I quit it and the computer shut off. I turned it on again and now it doesn't make it to the GRUB, it shows the Samsung logo, then "boot from ahci cd-rom", and then it reboots and shows the samsung logo again. I can enter BIOS (F2), but can't enter Samsung Recovery (F4) anymore (after showing "please wait..." the computer reboots again). I tried setting the BIOS back to default but it didn't help. Any input would be much appreciated...

So I have a Haswell i7 rig (GTX 780) with Platinum PSU etc etc... W8.1 Pro (and a few other W8.1 PC`s I tried the clone op with also)........

.... and on the SSD to clone in question, it is a Samsung EVO 250Gb SSD. It seems to work perfect.
But its getting near full~ish.... (30Gb spare)....

... so I bought a Samsung EVO VNAND 500Gb.... (twice the capacity) and thought an easy clone was in store....

(I also have some additional drives I have just disconnected for the Clone op [as the Samsung clone software was being stupid [trying to get me to clone my documents drive to my new SSD]). With or without the other drives connected, it FAILS, FAILS, FAILS.

So; when I try to clone, It gets to about 33% cloned, and then fails.
Time after time.

Recent ERROR MESSAGE is:- "Failed to retrieve source information 205500(0322bc)"

I tried to clone the SSD to SSD on a CLONE machine/Box. A FAIL
I tried to clone using Macrium Reflect. A FAIL
I tried to clone using EASEUS. A FAIL.
I tried them all a few times including the SAMSUNG CLONE Software.

What am I doing wrong?

Is there a problem with the 250Gb SSD I don`t know about (I am using this PC with it in now)...

Or will a SAMSUNG EVO not clone to a SAMSUNG VNAND ?

Do I have to try everything including disabling features such as RAPID MODE? And Disable Performance and everything?

Or what???

I have been a dozen hours trying to do this simple task.

I tired to contact SA... Read more

Create a recovery CD with Macrium(Win PE Rescue), back up your current SSD to an external HDD, install 500GB SSD and boot with rescue CD( Win PE) and restore the image from the back up with Macrium Reflect.
Try this utility, I have cloned with this a while ago: AOMEI Windows Backup, Cloning, and Recovery Software

In this discussion, Amy from Lenovo recommends that we purchase Lenovo SSDs if we want thermal management: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-P-and-W-Series-Mobile/Can-I-add-a-Samsung-950-Pro-NVMe-SSD-to-... The link no longer directs us to a particular model. So I perform a search on the Lenovo site and see (among others) this model: ThinkPad 256GB SAMSUNG PCIe NVME TLC OPAL M.2 SSD http://www3.lenovo.com/us/en/accessories-and-monitors/memory-and-storage/storage/HDD-BO-ThinkPad-M-2... What is this? A Samsung SSD rebranded as a Lenovo SSD? Would I gain in compatibility with such a drive or not, and specifically regarding thermal management? Also, is there a misprint below concerning the read speed? "ThinkPad 256GB SAMSUNG PCIe NVME TLC OPAL M.2 SSD supporting PCIe 3.0 interface standard up to 4 lanes shows much faster performance than previous SATA SSDs. It's sequential performance is up to 300MB/s for read operation and 1700MB/s for write operation by 4 lanes. Test-Prove 100% Compatible with ThinkPad machines. " That has to be 3000MB/S, right? 

A:Thinkpad-Samsung or Lenovo-Samsung NVMe SSD? What is this?

My impression is that even Lenovo themselves does not have a clue.
