You probably need drivers for your 10.1 to connect to XP.....

Try the Support section on your regions Samsung Site to obtain these......

Hi there,
read a lot of topics here and in other forums but can't find a solution. Windows can't detect my galaxy tab 7 at all. When I connect it to PC via USB cable it only starts charging and that's all. KIES says "connecting..." and stays like that forever. Tried re-installing the drivers, but no luck. Sometimes, it detects in in mass storage mode, but only for few seconds and it losses connection again. Can someone please help me...

My 7 inch tab works fine with Windows XP.....at first using an old version of Kies and now using the latest version.

Are you using the original Samsung USB cable and not a cable that only allows charging? Is this cable good?
Have you tried other USB ports?

Any other processes running in the background on your Tab such as a anti-virus? :sad:

No, it's not. It only starts charging and that's all.
