I have a USB connected from my Galaxy to my PC ...nothing pops up? can't find anything under "computer" or pictures. I have a file ready if and when I can download the ANDRIOD phone pictures. Help?

Turn on your android device and there should be a button labeled something like "Connect storage to PC". Once you've activated that button, it should act much like a usb memory stick (your windows settings will determine whether it opens automatically at that point), but until you tell the device to connect, the computer won't notice it.

Turns out the answer using a Galaxy/Android is not really simple. An app called "Kies air" is to be used with a UBS connection. So being a new "smart phone" user, being in Mexico and using a new PC really messed me up. Looks like the simplest answer is to purchase a mini card and open up the phone for picture transfers. Appreciate the replies.

It's simple for me. I've got a Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0, and it gives me a "Connect storage to PC" button, and once I use that, it shows up on my computer as "Removable Disk ( G: )". I guess either I had an app preinstalled to take care of that, or there's more difference than I expected between a Galaxy phone and a Galaxy Player. Sorry my advice wasn't helpful for you.

I had the same problem.....I had to go to samsung.com/kies and download the Kies....then you can do it but it's a pain in the you know what....wish I had never bought the phone. My phone is full and nothing will download without it being emptied. It is so hard to empty it....stick with I-phone next time...they are not near as hard to do.
