Samsung Galaxy S – getting it to work with Windows 7 x64.
I have revised my original post with my most recent experience – and I documentted it closely to help everyone out there.
I started with a freshly installed windows 7 64bit install. I have already installed all the other drivers and applications that I required for my PC previous, but today I decided to copy some music onto my phone when I realised I hadn’t set it up to work on this PC yet.
First things first, Turn USB debugging mode ON on your phone. (settings button, settings, applications, Development, USB Debugging – check it)
Here is the things I tried to fix it:
- Plugged phone in, nothing on phone, nothing on PC. Didn’t even have the little USB icon on the phone.
- Reboot phone – Leave it plugged into USB.
While it was rebooting, I noticed Windows ‘installing’ some drivers. When it finished rebooting, the USB icon was present. I enabled mass storage mode on the phone. No Luck yet.
- Installed drivers from usbdriversGalaxyS_x64.zip. Unzip and double click setup, follow prompts.
At this point, windows installed some drivers behind the scenes, and the explorer window popped up prompting me to explore the new drive.
