Connect Samsung Galaxy tab3 to Win7PC

Q: Connect Samsung Galaxy tab3 to Win7PC

Bare with me u guys. I'm a little lost with this Android stuff. Trying to connect the tablet via USB the PC alerts "not recognized". Win 7 can see my mobile via bluetooth but not this android.

Just want to transfer some files over to the android.


Preferred Solution: Connect Samsung Galaxy tab3 to Win7PC

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.)

As i recall the Tab you have to use a LINK via Computer to tablet there is a App on there that does it i forgot what it is but in order to get files and stuff to transfer it's pretty much a internet Sync to the PC

Via Bluetooth or the App they provided

My Acer Aspire V5 laptop with Windows 8.1 will not connect to the wifi hotspot of my Samsung Galaxy S5 for some reason. The laptop connected to my previous Galaxy S3 phone, and connects to my home wifi modem no problem. It recognises the phone in the Network list (when you click on the 5 bars icon on the bottom bar next to the volume control), shows full signal but will not connect to it. In Control Panel/Network and Sharing Centre the only "active network" listed is the home wifi modem.

Yes I have seen the similar post replies from 2013 but the suggestions given either don't work on my laptop or don't make sense to me. Any ideas? (please keep the jargon to a minimum, my computer knowledge is limited)

Downloaded and installed SonicWall Mobile Connect on my Samsung Galaxy 10.1 tablet so I can access my work network. When I attempt to connect, I get the message "Cannot reach server". Is there something else I need to download.

A:SonicWall Mobile Connect and Samsung Galaxy Tablet

If you are trying to connect to the server using your mobile network, you need a strong network signal. You may be in a weak signal area.
If you have a wireless router with internet access, set up your phone to use that router instead of using the phone network.

My phone won't connect to my Belkin router (F5D7230-4) thru the wifi connection. It previously had connected fine, but I'd reset the router today & changed the password. I'm able to connect with no problems (thru wifi or regular connection) on my pc. I went to my Belkin router page and have looked at my MAC settings (only option it gives is to clone, which I tried), I've also tried changing the password....my phone also gave me the option of hitting the WPS button on my router within 2 minutes, which I did, but it would not configure automatically as it was supposed to.

When I try to get on, on my phone, it'll say connecting, then authenticating, then eventually disable.

I would appreciate any suggestions. I did a search in the forum and saw a couple similar questions but none of those answers/steps seemed to allow me to connect. Thanks.

A:Samsung Galaxy S2 won't connect to home router/wifi.

you could try logging into the router and removing the wireless security and see if the phone now connects - if it does - put the security back on and try again

Hi all, hoping some windows people can help as the Android people cannot so far, this is a PC problem. thanks for looking

Essentially my phone cannot connect with my computer, it's not the phone, as it will connect quickly and easily to a laptop running XP Pro and a desktop running Windows 7 32 bit.

I have a Intel 2500K on a ASUS P8P67 B3. When I turn the phone to USB Mass Storage mode (making the unit into 2 flash drives one internal and one called external which is my 32gb microSD card) and plug it into my computer I see 2 removable drives, say G and H - neither can be accessed and I get "please insert disk" when I try.

When I plug it into the other computers I get 2 removable disk "Autoplay" pop ups and there's an option to view folders, I never get that with my machine.

So, should I be resetting USB ports, or looking into windows autoplay settings? I'm not a pro

Hi,I've never used Google Play store before & despite reading articles online I don't know how to do this specifically.I want to install Google cardboard on my Samsung Galaxy A3 & watch normal YouTube videos that I have downloaded & view those videos on a VR headset at the dentist(the latest Cardboard version doesn't seems to work on Galaxy A3).I have to download the videos as the dentist has really bad quality wifi.
Secondly if someone can recommend any moderately priced noise cancelling earphone that would be great!!(the in ear earphones give me ear infections so the ear 'cups' are best.)
Or if you have any tips for making the dentist experience more bearable.

Hi all,

after trying for several months to speed up my PC with help on this forum I eventually had to resort to a complete re-install of Windows XP. I have since re-installed HP Image Zone and though I have no problems in transferring photos from my camera's SD card by plugging it into my HP 2575 printer I cannot transfer pictures from my Galaxy SII any more. I have tried to connect the phone to the printer by USB cable but the device is not recognised and I have also tried connecting the phone directly to the PC via a USB cable but the option to transfer images using Image Zone is not on the pop up list. I have even tried to find the pictures using Windows Explore but the phone is not found there either.

Has anyone please got any ideas as to what I can do to transfer my pictures?

Thanks in advance,

Hi all! first sorry if I'm posting it in the wrong section..

Ok well my sister bought a brand new Galaxy S5 and she gave me her old S3 and I am pretty much excited about it as I finally jumped for my old iPhone 3GS to S3

Ok so here's the thing! right now the S3 is on the 4.1.2 (Jellybean) and I search a little over the net and found out that Samsung announced that the S3 will not support the latest FW 4.4 (KitKat). When I go to check for updates my phone starts to download the update which is about 500MB in size and I believe it's the FW 4.3 update and I heard from some people and even googled it that the 4.3 update has a lot of bugs especially the consumption of battery which increases crazily.

Now I need advise that should I update my phone or use it on the FW I have right now? or Update and factory reset it which will erase all the content from the phone and make it as fresh as a new set which I believe might cure those problems? HELP!

A:Samsung Galaxy S3 FW Update Question

2nd: (Government Pillared Building Icon) 17 U.S. code: 117 Very long page with many words. I din't bother to read a lot of them.
3rd (Multiple Dollars Stacked on top of each other Icon) The Credit card page! The one that has lots of enticing images regarding different money services, such as: Walmart * Money Card, and OneVanilla..... Actually It says that those are the only cards I can buy... Wow.
4th: (Clipboard Icon) Crazy page! Includes Pornographic images (Which are very common ones that you can find at almost any Pornographic website), My contact Info, an very little else.

Recently I purchased a samsung galaxy sII, and I am attempting to connect it to my computer using Samsung Kies, and it is continuously failing to install the MTP driver, and I think this has something to do with the fact that windows update won't offer me any updates whatsoever, or even search for updates. And I think this is the process used for adding drivers?

I don't care for the nature of the Kies software, although it did seem to work for my Galaxy S4 to make it visible to my desktop PC.

But I didn't bother installing it on my laptop. Instead I used PdaNet+ for Android. Works perfectly, and allows the phone to be handled very simply by Windows Explorer (rather than something like intrusive Kies software).

Also, PdaNet+ and FoxFi allows my S4 and laptop to run in "USB tethered mode" without having to pay Sprint monthly for WiFi capability.

Hello everyone. About an hour ago, I received a notification on my phone of a GroupMe message from someone whom I had not chatted with previously. Now, I opened up the notification, which brought me to their chat, which said something along the lines of "Look HighTide: INSERT_RANDOM_BAIDU_DOT_COM_LINK_HERE". Now, I didn't click on this link at all, but I'm concerned about possible infection due to the fact that GroupMe tries to pre-render web pages in the chat, and from previous issues with an old Skype account sending out baidu links. Since receiving the notification, I've blocked the person on GroupMe, which seems to have cleared the previous chat, as well as removed GroupMe from my phone entirely. I also changed the password on my GroupMe account as well. I've also scanned it with ESET and MalwareBytes, both of which have not detected anything. Is there anything else I should do to determine if the phone is infected, or to mitigate any damage? I'm just a little concerned as this is the phone I use for 2FA, so I don't want anything to be wrong with it.
EDIT: Just for further information, in case it helps, this is on a Samsung Galaxy S5 running on Android 6.0.1, which was the last major version update given for the phone. The phone is not rooted.

A:Received random baidu.com link on Samsung Galaxy S5

Got a similar message from two people on groupme, one whom I frequently chat with and one whom I barely know. Almost certainly a virus of some sort. Fortunately I was on groupme web so am likely safe from any reprecussions of just opening the chat, but I didn't click on the link

Hi, my old Sony Xperia Neo V was set to connect to my Windows 8.1 laptop as USB Mass Storage device. It had a microSD card. So when I plugged it in through the USB, Windows 8.1 displayed just a microSD device called "MICROSD" in THIS PC. When I transferred music or whatever, the pop-up window looked like this:

That's all right. Works like if I plugged a Hard Disk drive or flash memory.

But now, when I connect my new Samsung Galaxy Core II with android 4.4.2, there's no Mass Storage option. The most similar option is MTP (Media Trasfer Protocol). Now, in THIS PC there's a drive called "Phone". Inside Phone, there are 2 other drives called Phone and Card. So the first weird thing is that the laptop does not recognize the microSD as a drive itself (I think this is an Android 4.4.2 issue that does not support USB Mass Storage). When I transfer something to the microSD card, this window appears:
Why does this windows look different?
Why there's no speed transfer graphic?
