Default Samsung Galaxy drivers and NPS

Hey there,

I'm having problems to get my new Samsung Galaxy detected by NPS. My final goal is updating to the last firmware but let me go step by step. I have been reading many forums and this wiki
HTML Code:
http://wiki.dandascalescu.com/reviews/gadgets/pda_phones/samsung_i7500_galaxy#PC_software_.28Windows_only.29
but the system doesn't find some drivers for the Galaxy.

1) I installed the last version of NPS
2) I have unchecked the "Mass storage only" option in my phone
3) I have enabled the "USB debugging" option in my phone
4) When I connected my phone, some drivers were installed (I'm running windows XP 32 bits)
5) One or more drivers were not found and I pointed the search to C:\Program Files\Samsung\Samsung New PC Studio\USB Drivers
but the driver was still not found .

I'm stuck there. There are several folders into ...\USB Drivers\ and I went one by one, but still the driver was not installed. Ignoring it doesn't help since NPS won't recognize my phone as a Samsung Galaxy.

Any idea, hint? Have I missed some step?

Some info:

Model number: Galaxy
Firmware version: 1.5
Baseband version: I7500XXIG8
Kernel version: 2.6.27
Build number: 76XXCSDCBALUM6375

I'm in France
Using Windows XP Pro SP2 (because I cannot update my phone from my Ubuntu, or can I?)

Any help will be much appreciate it!

Default Reply to myself, it might help others

Unusually, I'm going to reply to myself.
I kept on playing around with the Galaxy connected and the NPS launched. Although the phone has some drivers missing and cannot surf the device, for example (device not supported, drivers missing) I could somehow click on the "Update" icon and this would run initially and recognize the phone.
The update started and downloaded the last version of the firmware. At this point, an error message complaining about the drivers appeared but the phone seemed to be installing something, so I left it finish for a couple of minutes... And voilà! The last version of the firmware has been installed.

I still cannot use NPS NORMALLY since the infamous driver is still missing, though.

After this story:

Band: I7500XXII5
Kernel: 2.6.27
Compilation: 75XXCSDCBALUM6375

AFAIK, noone can. That's a Samsung problem. I guess it is a unified app for most samsung smartphones and it's still not ready for Android.

Nevertheless people are usually able to install the driver I'm missing.

The driver it still can't find is the adb driver. You only need it for the SDK, and if you want to debug or open a shell to your phone.

I uploaded the (modified for samsung) adb driver, and download mode drivers here:

I installed this driver while trying to update the recovery image to v4.2 as part of the procedure to update to II5 and eventually the Galaxo ROM.

However, I now want to uninstall it as it is playing havoc with my PC. I'm running Vista Ultimate 32 bit and since I installed this driver the system has become extremely unstable.

When I connect my Galaxy (O2 UK IH6 firmware) all is ok initially and I am able to see the phone in NPS (IJ1) and the internal storage and SD Card in Windows Explorer.

However, if I try to browse either drive using Windows Explorer it stops responding, my USB wireless keyboard and mouse stop working and I am basically unable to do anything. The system isn't hanging as I can plug in a second USB mouse and use it to browse, etc but no keyboard means I can't do much else. If I try to shut the machine down cleanly it usually hangs on the 'Logging Off...' screen and I have to hit the reset key to reboot.

None of this happened before I installed the ADB driver, which I had to do in order to get fastboot to connect to the device so I could update the recovery image.

I have uninstalled NPS and all the Samsung and other related USB drivers I can find, but I'd appreciate some pointers to ensure that I have uninstalled the ADB USB driver as well as it wasn't obvious in the Remove Programs and Features control panel app.

Once I've done that I will reboot and reinstall NPS. Will I also need to reinstall the ADB USB driver so I can use Odin to flash to II5 and then the Galaxo ROM?

you dont need the adb driver for odin

to uninstall the drivers for this device you will need to connect it
right click my computer and go to manage
click on device manager
you should see ADB interface. right click and click uninstall
anything samsung mobile related in the list also click uninstall
reboot.


i very much doubt that the modified inf is causing the problem and is likely to be a red herring.
it could be something with reading the mass storage on the device that is causing the issues but i doubt its to do with the adb driver.
coincidence maybe

Did that but forgot to tick the option to delete the driver files.

I'm having the same issue myself, or rather what I thought was an issue. After some additional searching on the net I found this thread:

Seems that NPS can't give a very bright error message if you have the latest version (or if the version is too new). Anyhow, how I can put this to rest and move on to more fun parts

Default Samsung Galaxy S USB transfer

I go to Settings/About phone/USB Settings
enabling Mass Storage

Then I attach the cable and when the USB symbol appears, I slide
through the USB symbol to enable USB connection


KIES software must be checked for update but it does not relate
to USB transfer.

This is a thread from 2009 about the Samsung Galaxy i7500, it was released way before the Galaxy S and it's not the same thing at all.

Welcome to the forums by the way!
