Ok got my new Tab, decided to upload pics from my computer, loaded the Kies program, ran Kies program, pluged in my device, nothing happens?

I had bought the 7.0 tab b4 and had initially tried it on that, the Kies program recognized the tab and tried connecting but would never in fact make the connection, I had it re-load the device driver, tried again, same problem.

Anyhow I upgraded to the 10.1 and decided to try the Kies again, this time the Kies did not even recognize my device was plugged in, the tab however said it was connected as a Media device, anyhow it seems this Kies program is not very good.

anybody know of another way to sync with a computer to download pics besides spending the money for a mini SD card?

Kies can be a bit clunky and can take a while to connect.

Try the following :-

Or alternatively, if you use Picasa, upload to picasa on your pc and sync your tab with Picasa.

I do have a Picasa program, currently it has 2 pics, when I saved then to the device the pics were very blurry for some reason, guess I could always use e-mail and send as folder lol, will take time but once there is not a problem.

You shouldn't need to save Picasa pics to your Tab, they will automatically be there when you sync.

I'm new to the gtab p5113 and am trying to connect it to my pc. I connect the usb and it then hangs at "connecting".

I'm using Windows 7, usb debugging is checked and have uninstalled and reinstalled kies twice, still no luck

There's probably something simple I'm missing but lots of googling hasn't turned up anything yet.

TIA

Yep--what I've tried: usb debugging checked/unchecked, samsung usb drivers install (without kies), all three usb ports on my laptop, rebooted laptop and factory reset on the Tab (only had it for 3 days so didn't lose anything)

Still, "my computer" shows nothing when my p5113 is attached and kies shows "connecting".

I've worked with android a little bit on droid x since it came out--roms, bootstrap, cwm, theming etc. so I know there is some really dumb thing I'm missing....

Update--kies software just updated but still hangs on "connecting"--running troubleshooter again.

Question--is kies necessary? I tried kies air--mehhh. Just making sure I'm not trying get something I really may not need. (wishing)

When I first got my P1000 I found this problem, in the end it turned out to be the sequence I connected in.
I found that I had to

put the tab into kies mode
load kies on the pc
then....connnect the tab cable to the pc and click connect

If the tab was connected first before I opened up Kies, it would not be detected.


Try that, it may help.

I just bought a Tab 2 GT - P5113 and I went to connect it to my Windows 7 Pro it Failed to install MTB Drivers.
So I updated Kies and it still won't install the MTB.
So I talked to Samsung, they had me reinstall Kies again, and again, and again. Still doesn't work.
I have updated Windows and Win Media Player.

Anyone know what to do to fix this.

I also have a Samsung Infuse from At&t and it stopped connecting to the pc and comes up as an unknow device.

Question in that Kies says: "Your device doesn't support software updating via Kies"

Am running the current version of Kies

that may be because of your location, USA has different update methods to the UK,
check your Tab User Manuals & settings to see if updates are available from your provider

perhaps some other USA users can help with solutions

Hi, i am a new user that abandon my iphone and ipad ever since using i start using Galaxy Note and love it. Now i just gotten the Tab 2 10.1, and playing with it. Love it so far.

The only problem ive recently encounter (previously was ok) is that the Kies in my window pc hang at 40% when i sync with my outlook contact. Tried restart my samsung devises and pc but to no avail.

Did someone experience the same thing? Previously was already with the progress bar move till the end at 100% and contacts fully sync.

Is there any other sync apps that are good?

In this area, i think Kies is sucks, and itunes sync for iphone/ipad wins.
