1. I'm having problems getting the New PC Studio
(NPS, v18.104.22.16864_2, AKA Kies) with PC Sync, connecting and syncing with my phone. In the Phonebook, when I click the Sync button, I get an error message "No sync target selected. Go to Sync Setup > Select Target". On clicking OK, a screen then appears "Sync Settings" (Sync Setup?), with a tab "Target Settings", but there are no phones listed.
2. On the main Samsung New PC Studio screen, there is a mobile phone icon in the top-right corner with the caption "Connect Mobile Phone". But if I hover the cursor over it, a pop-up says "Mobile phone has been connect". This is ambiguous. Is it connected, or do I still need to connect?
3. Beneath the Mobile phone icon, is an SD Memory card icon, showing as Drive O: Clicking on it displays directories "Android", "Layar" etc. This seems to suggest the phone is connected.
4. During installation of New PC Studio, the software tried to configure MS Outlook, which I cancelled as I don't use it. Is it compulsory? I can find no documentation.
5. The "New PC Studio" Quick Guide (See the NPS Tutorial button
), after skipping the splash screen, has a section "Starting New PC Studio" and then "Connecting a mobile phone to a PC", which suggests that after plugging-in the USB cable to the phone, the phone will show "Comm Mode Select" with an option to choose "PC Studio". It does not.
Instead, there is a notification message at the top of the phone's screen indicating "USB Connected", and on dragging down the notification log, there is an entry "USB Connected: Select to copy files to/from your computer". After selecting it, a message pops up with the option to Mount, selecting which shows a message "Turn off USB Storage". I don't think this is a command, but an option to Dismount. I think this is consistent with Android User Guide 2.2
in the section "Connecting to a computer via USB" (page 56). I can't find a Guide of v.2.1.
5. In the system tray, New PC Studio (NPS) has an option "Open New PC Studio automatically when the device is connected". This never happens, and I have to launch NPS manually, which suggests the phone is connected, and the SD card accessible.
I have the Samsung Galaxy Portal GT-I5700 (AKA Galaxy Lite, AKA Galaxy Spica), on the Three network with Android 2.1.
