Plugged my wife's phone in and the computer starts searching for software can't upload photos as it say camera is busy. Any ideas cheers

    Welcome to the forum Stephen!
    Can you tell us what you've tried so far in terms of correcting the problem?
    Has she rebooted her phone, etc?

    That's strange. Does it look like it opened a file in Word? Did you try using explorer to see if you could access it?

    Yeah, I've never experienced that one before. Try rebooting both the phone & pc. If that doesn't work, try connecting your device to a different usb port, preferably on the rear of your pc.
    Let us know how you make out.

    Thanks guys I've tried all those things now and no joy windows just keeps opening install wizard searches for software then can't find any then the word option box pops up. If I go into the my computer option there is a picture of a camera with the title SM-600 or very similar click on the open photos option and it comes up camera or scanner is busy try again later! If I plug mine in it comes up as Samsung android and gives me options to do everything very odd

    That is extremely odd. Could you try something for me? Can you boot your wife's phone into safe mode and try to connect then? If it works normally then it has to be a software conflict.

    Entering Safe Mode:

    Turn off the smartphone. Press and hold the "Power" button. At the "Samsung Galaxy" Slash screen, let go of the "Power" button and immediately press and hold "Volume Down" instead. When the smartphone has finished restarting, you can release the "Volume down" key. To verify if you have rebooted in safe mode, look at the lower-left corner of the screen, where a "Safe Mode" label should be present.

    Sounds good. Also not sure about the keys... Perhaps another Samsung user can lend some clarity. I'm a Motorola guy although I did own a S4 for a few months.

    Samsung Kies is downloaded on your PC. It is a backup/device manager for Samsung Mobile devices.
