    plugged mine in...took a good 5 minutes with the bubble saying "found new hardware" then it said to restart the computer...did that and reconnected and it asked to do it again...went through the same thing again...restarted and it worked but it didn't show up as a drive letter on mine but some text...can't remember what it called itself but worked like a charm then...

    I had the same problem.

    Google search and try installing these to files and see if it works.

    No, the S3 still cannot connect to PC with usb. Downloading the usb driver directly from the Samsung website does not work.

    I'm curious where do you put music once you are connected. All i did to connect was plug in the phone. It downloaded the drivers automatically and said device is now working. My phone shows up and is connected. I see phone and card. open card and see DCIM and Lost.DIR. But I don't know where to put the music. Does it need to be in a specific folder, or just drop everything on the SD card. each album in its own folder? Thanks.

    You can just drop everything on the card, but your best option is to create a folder called "Music" on the card. Then you can drop everything in there.

    Thanks for the effort, but unfortunately this did not work either. Again, I have spoken with Samsung tech support and they simply do not have a solution at this time.

    Have you checked some of the other forums--Rootzwiki, XDA Developers, etc? Someone may have figured a work-around.
    Good luck!

    Hi, hope this helps.
    I just bought a galaxy s3, and had the same issues. several hours on support with both the geek squad, and Samsung. that proved my opinion that an outsourced overseas help desk, who barely speak English, and cannot read the support script are not that helpful.

    I downloaded the drivers, and installed KIES, but could not connect to my windows 8 HP laptop.

    I was able to connect when I moved the USB cable to a USB 3 port. I verified this was the resolution on multiple other pc's, and by using the ports on my docking station. for windows 8, you do have to download the drivers from Samsung. for windows 7, the OS is able to recognize the phone without a manual download (windows update).

    hope this helps!
