Cannot mount Samsung Android DCIM folder as a windows drive?

Q: Cannot mount Samsung Android DCIM folder as a windows drive?

When I plug my Samsung SIII (ice cream sandwich) into my Windows 7 pro USB port, it mounts as a portable device but does not have a drive letter associated with it. This makes it difficult (impossible) for me to reference it for running scripts or with various file copy utilities. I do not want to have to "import" pictures, as that process offers no control over the file selection in my 64gb sim card. How can I mount DCIM directory as a regular windows drive with a drive letter, so that I can perform normal file folder operations on it?

BTW. To add insult to injury, I only want a half dozen pictures out of the many GB in the DCIM folder. However, since I cannot see thumbnails, I cannot pick out the few which I would be happy to drag and drop, if I knew which ones they were.

Preferred Solution: Cannot mount Samsung Android DCIM folder as a windows drive?

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.)

A: Cannot mount Samsung Android DCIM folder as a windows drive?

is there not a setting on the phone when you plug it into the pc to change it from charge only to mount as disc drive,
i have an HTC with this ability, so im just having a guess as to the samsung.
but i would think it must have the function somewhere on the phone, then it shows in "computer " as a drive with a letter.

I was just thinking to myself, (dangerous at the best of times), and started wondering about file encryption.

Is it possible in XP to create a folder and mount it as a drive on the same machine without a network?

If so, is it also possible to drag and drob files into that mounted folder? That is to say, the drive gets bigger the more you put into it?

Just a thought I'd like to have an answer to. I may start fiddling with the idea later.

Hello, I tried searching to see if this question was asked but I didn't see it so here it goes...

My mother has a digital camera that I typically use most of the time. It is a Sony DSC-N2 Cyber-shot camera. The memory card that I use is a Sandisk Pro Duo 2.0 gb.

When we first started using the camera it was saving the pictures in folders using MM/DD/YYYY on the memory card and if it was a different day or whatever it would create a new folder so all I had to do was click the option of just importing the new folders on my computer. A couple months later it now only saves them under the DCIM folder, then a subfolder named 101MSDCF, where it just dumps all the pics there and no longer saves the way I used to like it. So now to import I have to create a new folder in my pics open the folder from the memory card highlight the ones from that day and put it there so it doesn't import all the pics from that folder. I was wondering if there is a way of having it save the way it used to instead of the DCIM, subfolder 101MSDCF. I tried going to the menu on my digital camera but all I could do is see what folder the pics are saving into, which is the 101 folder thing and cannot change it..

I hope that makes sense, and thanks for the help in advance!

A:DCIM folder/import help

DCIM simply means 'digital camera images' and will always stay. The format of other sub folders can be in the 'set up' menu of the camera. I think you are looking in the 'record' menu.

The combination on computer talk and my english-as-a-second-language makes me quite unsure, if not insecure ! about this partition business. So here's my situation :: i deleted an old G: partition, wich is now Unallocated. The other partition −N:− of this old external drive now serves as back up for my new computer. You guessed right, i want to extend that partition, and i can't use the Extend volume option [dynamic disk not supported]. In the New simple volume option on Unallocated should i use Mount in the following empty NTFS folder wich would be N:. Or what... ? >Many thanxes.

EDIt :: i just read some of How to Delete and Extend a Partition with Disk Management in Vista but... i don't feel better, !o!

I haven't reached my limit yet, but I'm down to a few unused drive letters, so I've been looking for a way to reorganize. I tried mounting my media drives in NTFS folders, which works OK, but is quite sub-optimal as you can't index them and thus cannot use them in the Libraries. You also can't run chkdsk on them at all.

Does anyone see any other options here? If I mount all of my media drives to letters, I run out of alphabet... if I mount them in folders I can't use index, libraries, or chkdsk. I'm not too excited about switching back and forth for disk maintenance even if I could just give up on Libraries...

If you have enough drives to fill up 26 drives letters...Would it not be a better approach to upgrade to a RAID-5 Network Attached Storage device? (Or even a Drobo would be good.) Then you have both a single gaint drive and local backup against drive failures.

A friend was using my 12 GB I/O Magic flash drive (USB 2.0) on a MAC (Powerbook G4, OS X) to transfer some In Design files when it froze. Had to reboot, and OS X no longer recognized the USB drive. Mounted it in my HP dv1000 laptop running Windows XP (ver 1.5, SP2) and got the following Windows error message: The specified I/O device\Device\Hardisk 1\DR 3 was not completed before the timeout period expired. I got the same basic message with a Dell running XP, SP2, but the Device was identified as Hardisk 0. Device manager shows no problems with any USB device or root hub on either Windows PC, and I've tried deleting all of them to force new driver installs, but with no luck. The drive still does not show up in My Computer, or Explorer, but on occasion, when I hover over the USB icon in the task bar, it will identify it as the 'I Drive' which is the normal ID in Windows on the HP laptop, but no other recognition this device is mounted. When this happens, and I stop the port and unplug, it still is unrecognized. Any way to get either the MAC or Windows based PCs to mount this drive so the In Design file can be recovered, or if all else fails, to just format to allow USB drive reuse? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I recently updated my Galaxy Note 5 Android OS after doing so, I found that my Inspiron 5748 no longer connected to my Phone.  I contacted Samsung who said that Dell needed to provide a Marshmallow update that I could download to correct this matter.  I contacted tech support but they wanted me to pay for them to provide help with this problem.  Does anyone have a fix for this?

A:Samsung Note 5 USB interface no longer working since Android System update

Hello!  So it sounds like there is a problem with the drivers.  I would go here and make sure you have the latest drivers for your computer, depending on OS of your laptop.  Generally if there is anything special that needs to be done, it would be on the phone manufacture's side of things so maybe there is an updated USB driver for your phone somewhere?  In general there wouldn't be anything that Dell can do about it since its technically a Samsung problem.

under Win 8 Pro 64-bit, I discovered the following oddity: When I try to mount an ISO image using the Windows' built-in mounting function, it works when the the ISO is located on a local drive, but NOT if it is on a network drive (linked to my NAS). The latter case yields an error saying that mounting failed without further explanation. (YES, the Iso file type is associated to Windows Explorer and YES, there is a spare drive letter after the local drive letters; actually my local drives are from B: (DVD) to D:, and the network drives are between F: and Z:, so that a mounted ISO receives a virtual drive at E: .)

Can anybody confirm this behaviour and possibly shed light on it, or - even better - provide a better solution than installing third-party mounting software like DaemonTools? Is it a bug that Microsoft will hopefully address soon?

Hi there,

I. What do I have?

- android phone with onenote app and googledrive
- desktop windows 7 full office 2010 and googledrive

II. what I'd like to do?
I'd like to be able to edit the same notebooks from Onenote in all my devices with and without internet access, syncing it every time it's possible but not needing a connection to work with these notebooks.

III. for starters Onenote apparently does not support googledrive. Can I go around that by saving the notebook file in the googledrive folder?

How do I do it? any ideas?

thank u very much,


A:Onenote + Skydrive + Google drive on windows + android

you can upload and download individual files anytime you have a connection without the automatic sync by selecting none of the folders to sync. Onenote will not work from googledrive, but the files can be used by the upload download method. Not sure of the Why's, but there you go....

I know I sound crazy but I am starting to miss Itunes. I had my MP3 folder with a batch of copied stuff from my main archive. It was organized for Windows. Most of the time Itunes was easy to use in that I droped the folder into it and made it my default folder so I could delete stuff from the MP3 folder via itunes it processed it and bam working very few issues. I never got duplicate playlist had some improperly removed mp3 files which stuck in itunes.

Right now I am having so many issues updating my mp3's and playlists and with duplicate playlists, empty playlists its driving me nuts. How do you manage and sync songs for android without a ton of issues? I was jsut copying the folder over but the dump way android handles files I can not use my windows sync programs. I got tired of it screwing things up so I tried winamp and it just had to sort everything in a horrible incoherent manner(album/artist folders ,ect) and that did not fix any of my issues. Out of the few players I like I like Shuffle and Rocket player but as far as I understand it they don't control anything they just play. Right now I have 50GB of mp3's on my micro sd card and its reporting 80k music files.... its nonsense....

I am just so lost.

A:Best way to sync mp3 folder to an android phone?

Hi. Calm down! I guess you just changed from iPhone to Android phone not long ago? Once you plug in your Android, you should see a portable device folder where you can manage all the files in your Android. If this doesn't work, there are also many desktop syncing programs just like iTunes, such as iTools, Apowersoft Phone Manager, MobileGo, etc. However, personally, I would recommend you to use wireless apps like AirMore for managing Android files on web or Pushbullet for transferring files in a fast way.

A:How can I set my Android phone to appear as network folder

As far as I know there is no way to enable SMB Share on Android without downloading some software to the phone, There are quite a few file managers that have the option to enable file sharing with almost any OS.
The way I do it on my phone is with a program called AirDroid there is a free and paid version, I use the free version and as far as I know it is not capable of SMB share, you connect to it from a web browser.
There are other option's, you could run a FTP,HTTP server but I'm not sure if it would work since Android is based on Linux and with Linux any port below 1024 requires root.
Now that I think about it SMB requires ports below 1024 (port 445), so any solution you come up with will require that you can change the default port to something like 8080 which is a default port for many Linux OS's to start a service without root.

for couple of days, breaking my head tring to figure out what im doing wrong, or what else i can do .

i used to have as my C:\ drive a kingstone 120gb SSD drive . due to lack of space, i bought 250GB SSD samsung evo-850 drive.
i execute fresh new windows 10 pro X64 installation on the Samsung but after installation finished with no error, and setup is rebooting the pc, the screen is stuck on the "loading operation system" and nothing is happening.

i thought that the cause for that is because i still have the kingstone drive plugged in, and there is conflict between those, but even when i unplugged the kingstone drive and execute windows installation, same thing is happen.

i tried to change order of booting from the pc setup and again nothing is chagne (samsung drive is shown in the pc setup and also when i load windows from the kingstone drive)
i also tried to version of windows setup iso which are used from Disk on Key "burned" with rufus latest version.

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

Hello to you all,

This is my first post and I'm far from being a computer expert... so please accept my apologies if this is in the wrong section or if it is such a simply query that a four year old could solve it!

I've recently purchased a Samsung R780 laptop and when it first started to install Windows 7 it asked me to partition my hard-drive. As I was a little unsure about this I did some searches on my phone and found that it was good to have a small ish partition as my 'C' Drive (i.e. where Windows was to be installed) and a bigger partition for my 'D' Drive to store my personal data. As such, I opted to have 86 gig on my 'C' Drive and 490 gig on my 'D' Drive. This is all well and good, however, I've found that when I installed my virus protector it didn't give me the option to select which drive I wanted to install to. I.e. I downloaded ESET NOD 32 and it automatically assigned itself to my 'C' Drive. So, my first question for you Windows experts is, can I set something up so that I'm given the option of which drive to install programs too (I want to install iTunes, but knowing how large their software is I'm afraid I will run out of space on my 'C' Drive - I only have 55 gig left)... I would prefer not to have to use regedit if possible, as I understand this can be a minefield for inexperienced people like myself.

My second question relates to the fact that I tried assigning 'My Music' folder to the 'D' Drive. I did this by changing its location under preferen... Read more

A:Partitioned drive on Samsung R780 / Windows 7

Welcome Stephen to the windows 7 forums.
Most programs do give you the option of where to install them. Some do not but most do. Many times there is a small screen where you can change the drive and directory where they will be installed.

That aside. I have many programs and their data installed on my larger D drive like documents and special directories for my email. My outlook uses a directory on my D to store the .pst file which can get large.

I would recommend creating directories on your data drive that you will then have to go into each program and change the default directory for it's data.

Once you install a program on your C drive, you are kind of out of luck unless you uninstall and then re-install telling it to use the D drive. Many people just take the defaults but many programs require that you allow them to put some data on the C, such as dll's and such.


PS: again Welcome.

Here is the guideline from Dell: 

Im also interested in E5570, some questions:
1. Quite many user reviews complain about high-frequency noise coming from mobo or PSU unit. Can you confirm?
2. Would you know if any available Dell SSD option is actually NVMe?
Also, the trouble is, you have to buy M.2 SSD from Dell in order to get 6cell battery.

Hello everybody!
Hope all well & in a helpful mood!
I`m running Windows 8.1, on a Sony Vaio, &, trying to access my music stored on Samsung M3 1TB external hard drive. It seems to load up about 99% of the drive, (after quite a long-ish wait), then, I get a, "pc not responding", message. So near, yet so far, kind of thing, &, I`m tearing my hair out here because of it!
Any help/guidance, would be gratefully received, as all of my research, so far, has not produced anything that`s worked.

I setup some drives as mounts but they do not display the real drives size in explorer, instead displaying the size of the drive they are mounted on.

Is there some option for this, or an alternative?

Maybe I don't know how to google?
I'm guessing it's just the way it is....

I have a number of unreadable files and folders on my DCIM removable media. I can't open them and can't rename. When I try to do so, I am informed that they can't be read or opened. At first one or two showed up as I used the removable media from my camera, but as I continue to use and recover images, more of these files appear.

Is there any way to delete or dispose of them?

A:DCIM corrupted files

Reformat the media using the camera if possible.
