Most android phones will be recognized immediately on a Windows PC when connecting the mni-USB to your PC’s USB port, but not so fast for the Samsung Android tablet.
Setting up your PC:
First, you need to download the drivers from Samsung’s site
- Click on [See all downloads] under the Downloads section.
- Click on the [Software] Tab to see the driver executables.
- Grab the latest version for XP/Vista/Windows7 by clicking on the [EXE] button to the right.
- You will need to click on the [Send] button on the disclaimer pop-up to move forward with the download.
- Save the download to a known location. I typically save all downloads to C:\temp\Android
- Choose [Run] after download
Setting up your Samsung Tablet:
- Enable the checkbox for [USB Debugging]. You will get a disclaimer pop-up, so choose [OK]
- Connect your USB cable to your Samsung tablet and the other end to your PC. I removed the USB cable from the charger that comes with the tablet.
- Once connected, your PC should recognize the tablet. It might appear by the model number (GT-P7510).
- Just move files that you would normally do as if it were a thumb drive. I place all my files under the [Documents] Folder
- Use your tablet’s [My Files] app to locate the Documents folder on your tablet.
- Remember to turn off the USB Debugging when not in use
How to use:
Connect your Android tablet (with the USB Debugging mode enabled) via USB to your PC
- Your PC should recognize the device
- Using Windows explore, I recommend copying the file(s) from your PC to the tablet’s [Document] Folder.
- Using your tablet’s [My Files] App, navigate to your [Documents] folder.
