I'm trying to do this 16-character fix, but I ran into a snag at the very start. I connected using the Mass Storage option. My PC (Windows 7, 32 bit) listed it under Devices and Printers. However, I couldn't browse the files. The drives for K and L were light grey, like it was an option I could see but wasn't allowed to choose. What could be hindering me from browsing those drives?

Thanks.

-The utility will find the bad files’ list and now you have to go to that location in My Computer and delete all the files listed and then do a research.
-Once you get no results as shown below you are good to go.

-Do the same steps for Phone’s Memory & SD Card (if you have one in your phone).
-Disconnect your phone and re-connect the USB.
-This time select Kies PC Suite option and 100% it will install the MTP USB Device without any problem.

Thank you. Thank You! THANK YOU!!! A thousand thanks. May you and your children be healthy and happy. May you all enjoy long, fruitful lives. May you never be lacking the necessities of life. May your libidos last forever. May your Galaxy S never break.

The step I was missing was:

"-Select the USB icon from the Notification section in Samsung Galaxy S to Mount the drive."

Take care, everyone.

Hi all,

I just thought I would post my experiences with this phone, MTP, and Kies:

- I have kies installed on two PCs - Home (newest version) & Work (ver: 5.32222)

- Kies at home was crashing everytime I wanted to cancel a firmware upgrade (even just a check) so I decided to uninstall and reinstall the same version at work, which operated fine

- Upon uninstall and reinstall, Galaxy now started doing the "MTP" loop

- I also noticed that after I disconnect the device from the PC, I can no longer access my internal SD card, unless I do a hard reboot.

- I initially thought this was caused by the new home install, but the looping also happened at work now, which leads me to believe Kies messed up the internal SD on the Galaxy, or how it handles it.

- After a lot of trial and error, I found out that I have to connect the Galaxy in mass storage mode... simply browse the directory (NOT CHANGE ANYTHING)... disconnect & reconnect, select Kies, and it now connects fine.

- Problem solved right? Nope. Upon disconnect from Kies, if I reconnect Kies again, home or work, the MTP looping starts up again, and internal memory is no longer accessible. I have to follow the same steps above in order to connect, but first do a hard reboot in order for the phone to recognize the SD.

A weird change that I have also noticed is that If I try to connect the Galaxy to my PC in mass storage mode AFTER the failed kies attempt, I no longer have to mount the drive, the PC already sees the files. In fact, even if I select mount, it does nothing. In the phone information, it tells me my internal SD information is "unavailable".

So my theory so far is this:

Connecting to Kies first, causes the phone to mount the internal SD for reading, but messes up the connection somehow. Once I disconnect from the loop, the SD is still mounted, so the phone doesnt recognize it, BUT it doesnt know that the SD has been mounted so it just thinks one doesnt exist.

I think somewhere in the memory, the phone is now defaulted to have the internal SD always mounted, but still accessible. When I connect to kies, it again tries to mount an already mounted SD and crashes. I believe that is the reason why I need to do the mass storage first. By mounting and unmounting the SD in mass storage, you set things right, allowing the connection to Kies. When you disconnect from Kies, it doesnt unmount the SD and messes everything up again.

I don't know, I may be way off but Im getting tired of all this troubleshooting.

I will be trying this 16 character thing to see if that is the reason everything is messing up, be regardless, there are some major issues with Kies and how it handles this phone.

Hope this helped anyone.

Just an update,

I am sure now everytime I connect my Galaxy S, the phone automatically always mounts the internal SD. Works great for Mass storage, not so great for Kies. All I do now is:
1 - connect the phone, select Kies (MTP error starts looping),
2 - I press the home button to exit
3 - pull down the notification bar
4 - unmount internal SD (which is already mounted)
5 - Kies connection starts up again automatically
6 - and a connection is successfull

Works for now...

btw, the exe found some long file names but didnt solve my looping MTP issue. I think the MTP looping happens at any SD related error, whether long file names or SD mounting.

Did you "select the USB icon from the Notification section in Samsung Galaxy S to Mount the drive"?

Can you see your device's internal and external storage listed as separate drives under My Computer on your PC? Can you browse them?

Weird. So you pull down the notifications drawer and mount it, but it doesn't go through. Is that correct? Is the Windows Device Manager showing any errors?

I done that and it still doesn't find it, maybe I did something wrong.

Edit: Both come up clean and yet it doesn't accept the phone :@

That works .. thank god

You forgot to mention that Samsung Kies needs to be default when plugging in the USB cable. All the other hints did not work so far.

PLEASE!!!


Before doing the driver recovery - try to just simply unmout the SD card - after having Kies working perfectly it starting flashing the MTP app and wouldn't connect - after reading this therad I simple unmounted the SD card & it connected to Kies in 1 second flat!

Sync'd my calandar and all good - please just try the SD unmout before you perform any driver recovery.

Cheers,

Chris

in settings menu go to about phone,usb settings and select samsung kies and then exit the menu and reboot the phone

run kies , connect usb cable to the phone , let the drivers install and the phone should now be connected in kies

keep usb connection on phone in samsung kies mode to avoid connection problems in future

I found files with long extensions by mounting the phone as a USB drive and searching in Windows Explorer for *.?????????????????* (that's 17 question marks). Removing these stopped MPT crashing and flashing about twice a second but the MTP screen does refresh every five seconds or so. Is this normal? Previously I saw the Android desktop in between crashes but not any more. I think I've resolved that part of the problem at least.

The problem now though is that Kies just hangs with 'Connecting the device... Please wait' forever. On the phone it says Initialising. I tried downloading the drivers linked from a site mentioned above but no luck. In any case, why on earth should this be necessary when there's a recover drivers link within Kies? Surely that should be more trustworthy? I'm using the version 1.5.3.10103_100 of Kies and have reinstalled innumerable times.

Edit: I'm using Windows XP SP3. In device manager I don't see portable devices or MTP as other posters have mentioned.

Frankly I'm absolutely disgusted to have been put to so much inconvenience for what should be a very simple operation.

Anyway, if anyone has any other suggestions they would be welcome. Maybe I should open another thread. I don't know any more. I need a break.

BTW, when searching this forum for "MTP" nothing comes up, whether advanced search or not. What's that all about?

Good Lord, Kies is a piece of shit! I haven't seen software this bad since the Windows 98 era. I can't even believe that any serious company would release something this full of bugs. What a horrible, horrible experience it's been trying to get my Galaxy S connected to my PC.

I wish I had my iphone back - I won't make this Android mistake ever again.

Does anyone know if the long filename issue has been solved in either the 2.2 Froyo update (which I got today) or in the latest Kies version (my installation updated to 1.5.3.10103_100 today)?

In Kies (at least in latest version, don't know it the option is in older versions too) there is an option that is "driver recuperation" os something like that (in the top left menu). If done that with the phone connected but not working and after the download the error still appeared, maybe it was because I didn't have administrative priviledges at the moment. But then I changed to another computer where it did't work before, this time with administrative priviledges and Kies showed my GT-I9000 and let me update the firmware without having to do anything else.

Hope this helps.

pd: I didn't delete any files with 16 character extensions. I didn't like the idea of deleting files I don't know what do they do.

EDIT: Actually I thought I did. After downloading the firmware update the connection is lost and the instalation crashes. And the next times I try it some of them gets the phone connected to kies and sometimes it just keep "connecting the device". I'm starting to hate Samsung...

Exe is attached. Click the search button and select the SD card or Phone's internal memory , then you will see a list of files with extensions larger than 16 characters. Click on each file entry in the listbox to open the folder location. Hope this helps...

P.S : Needs .Net runtime.

you're awesome
thanks

I used your exe but it detects not even one long extension file.
So I made a back up and format everything, now I can connect to Kies but the Froyo update is not even available for me!
Anyway, good job though!

Is anyone noticing that MTP crashes when trying to sync with Windows Media Player?

I have no long filename extensions... I have tried wipes and reinstalling drivers... nothing works. Any suggestions?

Can someone just make a YouTube tutorial please. I don't get what you mean by Internal and External.

I press Mount, go to My Computer and then delete any long files and it still does not connect!!

Why can they not just release a fix??

Default My MTP crashing solution

This is a step-by-step process of what works for me. Its stupid and annoying but it works so:

Step 1 - Change USB mode to "Samsung Kies"
-> Settings
-> about phone
-> Samsung Kies

Step 2 - connect to a PC with Kies already installed. It doesnt matter what version, all versions work for me with this method

Step 3 - MTP will start crashing so press the middle home button (Galaxy S I9000)

Step 4 - when the Galaxy S returns to the home screen, pull down the notifications bar and look for the USB mount/unmount option. (If its not there, your problem is different then mine so I can't help you). Unmount the phone

Upon unmounting, the SD card will mount back into the phone, the media scanner is running, and once complete the MTP program should start up again but this time it will connect.

This method worked for me and friend's phone. Remember one important thing... before disconnecting the phone, pull down the notification bar and unmount the SD again. Once the media scanner starts, pull the plug before it ends. Failing to do this *may* leave your SD card unmounted giving you no access to your files. To fix this you would need to do a reboot.

Hope this helps anyone. I tried the long file name thing but it didn't help me. It took me a few hours of trial and error to figure this one out.

I've done step 1-4 and it starts up again by itself but it doesn't connect. This is really annoying me now, why can they not just release an update?

Hmm i'm still unable to connect my Galaxy S to KIES after running the search and deleting the long file extensions. It's stuck at the initializing stage. I've tried alot of different methods and ways but i still can't. This is getting damn irritating. Any ideas??

Default Kies does not work

I have tried all the suggestions mentioned in the threads about Kies. Nothing works. Kies never puts the device in the upper right corner.
One measure of how bad Kies must be is that so many complaints can be found here. After trying each one, I suspect that the 'thanks, it works' posts are from Samsung trolls.
Syncing with the desktop and with Outlook should not be this hard. Even if these suggestions worked, to have to uninstall drivers and re-install them, or use a factory setting to recover drivers (what does that tell you?), or have to go through several phone and PC settings in a particular sequence and all the other misdirections just to get this to work, indicates how bad Kies is.
When I search for 'kies does not work' and its permutations, I find hundreds of complaints. One site has many comments with over 95% agreeing that Kies fails.
Kies is not the solution.

Kies is not the solution.
Agreed. However you might also want to try MTP Application Crashing - Page 4 - xda-developers

I did not haveany long filenames or extensions but I have now got KIES to connect to my GAlaxy I9000T

I uninstalled and removed every file and folder to do with Itunes.

Samsung help told me there is a conflict issue with Itunes.

Who knows but it worked for me.

I found and installed latest KIES and did an update it suggested.

I removed all the Itunes stuff ( I never used it anyway in my PC)

I did a registry clean and a reboot...

and it NOW works.

It is frustrating to know that these solutions don't work for everyone. It really shows just how messed up the support for this phone is. Every time I update Kies I hold my breath, hoping I don't have to spend another few hours figuring out how to get *my* phone to connect.

The steps I listed work for me now everytime, but I doubt they will once I update Kies again.

Seriously, if I were Samsung I'd be ashamed of releasing a POS program like Kies on the public. The amount of bad feeling it's generated must have cost them money? If they'd just waited til the damn thing worked properly...

Anyway, this ought to be a lesson to phone makers the world over...but of course, they'll keep shoving them out there before they're ready and we'll keep getting screwed.

Ha! On restart it's now frozen on the glowing S screen. FML.

Thank you, Thank you and thank you. Finally a clear, simple method for a fairly inexperienced bloke. Much apreciated. I'm now connected after 2 weeks of trying different things every day.
