My Windows Vista PC says to install the disc that came with with the Galaxy 2 S. There was no disc. Reps from the local store say go to Setting-applications-development, then select USB debugging and Allow mock locations. But, I doesn't work. All I am trying to do is to download photos from my Samsung phone to my PC. My PC does not recognize my Samsung Galaxy 2 S. Does anyone have a solution to this? It would be greatly apreciated.
Sorry to hear you're having this problem but I would love to help you get a resolution! Are you still having this issue? Have you tried also enabling Mass Storage Mode when you plug the device in? Let me know!
Get USB drivers from Samsung:
http://www.samsung.com/us/support/downloads/t-mobile/SGH-T989ZKBTMB <-- Check to make sure you get the version for your model. KIES installs the USB drivers which is probably why you are unable to see the phone.
On my Win 7 Pro computer, it saw the phone and I didn't need any special drivers.
It usually looks for drivers, but if you put the phone into mass storage mode (should pop up when plugged in) then go to My Computer on your PC, the phone should show up as any flash drive would. If all else fails, you could always use Dropbox. The app is free, and so is the PC software and a basic account (which I think is a couple of Gigs). You can upload photos and files from your phone or PC to Dropbox then download them from there to where you want them. You don't even have to be at home to do it.
