Cool Driver for GT i7500 Galaxy anyone??

Hi everyone.

I can not seem to be able to transfer mp3 or anything else to my Galaxy GT i7500.

The New PC Studio software says I need to install the driver, although the software include drivers, but i guess the wrong ones... Any idea?

Can it be that in order to upload mp3 i must have a micro SD card installed in the phone? The phone has 8GB of internal memory.

I also do not have the Market application, so I guess I will not be able to download any application to the phone, right?

Thanks!

Unhappy Beginner's questions ;-)

Hey – thanks for replying.

By your replies I just see how beginner I am in all the bolg-mobile phone experience: I actually hardly understand what is written in the blogs and the Sticky blogs…but I am trying ;-)

So again about the problems: I have a Galaxy i7500 unlocked phone (bought in New York City days ago) and I can not upload any mp3 files.

The New PC Studio software that came with it is working – but do not seem to support this phone, or to have useful drivers to it. It keeps on telling me that I don’t have the drivers, so the device is not supported.

Another problem is that there is no Market application – so I cannot upload any application to the phone I guess.

The Wi-fi, GPS, wireless phone, email and browser – all work well.

Here are few details about the phone and my computer:

· My computer is Windows XP professional
· About my drivers and NPS search – I tried to install also these versions – none worked:
The CD- I received with the phone: New PC Studio 1.2.0.IF2_2.exe
New_PC_Studio_1.3.0.IH4.exe
Samsung_PC_Studio_313_GL6.exe
SamsungUSBDriver_4_40_7_0_v1_6.zip
New PC Studio 1.4.0. IL2

When I plug the phone through the USB – the phone icon (GT I7500) comes up on the New PC Studio softwares i installed– like it is recognizing that I plugged the phone in. However - It always says No driver – only update is available –Update Device: cannot connect to the server.

And of course when I try to drag some mp3 files onto the phone icon in the it says “ your phone is not supported”

Device manager: there is a yellow sign near USB (and it shows that it is the Samsung) – but I cannot find the correct driver to use when I try to option to reinstall or update the driver. I tried with many drivers i found through the links on the blog - as well as the original NPS software i received

· Maybe it is important to note that I do not have a SD card in the phone. The phone is have 8GB of internal memory so I was thinking to try to put mp3 files in it – but as I mentioned it doesn’t succeed to connect through the NPS software. Maybe it is because I do not have the SD card?
· Here are some more details about my Galaxy:


1.) Model Number ? Galaxy
2.) Firmware Version ? 1.5
3.) Baseband Version ? i7500vjig4
4.) Kernel Version ? 2.6.27 WOOTAE@SE-S409 #1
5.) Build Number ? 76XXCSDCBALUM6375

Also do you have a T-Mobile Data plan on your
PayAsYouGo or FlexPay Plan? ___PAY AS YOU GO - USA

Carrier ? UNLOCKED – BUT I USE MY T MOBUILE PAY AS YOU GO IN THE USA AND THE PHONE WORKS WELL – IT IS UNLOCKED PHONE_ (we know some are also Unlocked so not Just T-Mobile)

Country you are using your phone in ? ___USA____________ (we know that not everyone is from the US)

Is the phone SIM registered in T-Mobile as the Correct phone? The phone works with my t mobile sim card.


* MY USB debugging IS on.

* Mass USB storage turned off. With it ON - the phone doesn't appear on the NPS screen.

· Samsung USA won’t support it - says the phone came from another country and I have to ask my dealer what country – so I can call them


* And also – only if you can – please point me to explanation about these terms – I don’t know what they mean…beginner, you now ;-)

Rooting?
Flash
Odin
Windows X64
What is 2.0 ROM for Samsung Galaxy? I guess I am asking what is ROM?

Thanks so much!

Q: I can see my i7500's drives on my computer but i cannot browse them. Why?
A: With the device unlocked, pull down the notification bar at the top and click Mount

Q: NPS does not see my device but sees the drives, why is this and how do i fix it?
A: There are many reasons why NPS will not work properly but even when it does it can only be used for updating the device firmware currently.
Here is a post on what NPS is good for Problem to connect Galaxy i7500 with NPS

Smile One problem solved - connection to the Samsung I7500

Thanks to your help - i succeeded to put mp3 and movie files in my Galaxy Gt i7500.

How:

1) i installed the drivers from the New Pc Studio drivers and the software.
2) i used additional driver from the file samsungADB. It got installed too. I think it helped!
3) when i plug the phone to the computer USB - i did not use the software NPS to access the phone. I opened notification bar (by touching the upper line in the screen - in the home screen on the phone - and dragging it down). Then - I clicked on the USB option and chose " Mount". Then i could see the phone as a separate drive of my computer - and drag mp3 folders and mp4 movies to it. simple.
4) in order to see what is on the phone you have to open the notifications bar again and choose to disconnect the USB option.
.
.
.
Now let's see if i can figure out how to add the Market option into my phone.

Thanks again!

1. Uninstall samsung NPS (you don't need it)
2. Go to this page: Using i7500 with x64 Computer (Drivers) download the "samsung drivers" from verizon. Extract the file using winzip or winrar to a folder somewhere on your hard disk.
3. Plug in the phone now that you uninstalled NPS and windows will ask for drivers. Point windows to the folder you just extracted and then to the "drivers" folder inside there.
4. Windows should install all the necesarry drivers. And you should have access to the sd card once its all done by dropping down the bar on your phone and clicking mount SD card.

If you enable USB debugging, you will be missing a driver in window's "device manager". This is your ADB driver for using ADB. You can follow directions here: http://androidforums.com/samsung-i7500/13692-how-odin-galexo-rom-s.html under the ADB section. Just download the file and follow directions from the guide on that page to get that driver installed if you need it later on once you want to root.

Rooting: allows you to have "administrative" access to your phone, allowing you to modify system files as you need to. Kind of like windows regular user vs. admin.

Flashing: Think of it as "updating" or the operating system on the phone, sort of like when you update windows from xp to vista.

0din: Look in the FAQ, but its basically a software that will allow you not to need the samsung NPS to flash "factory" style ROMS (operating systems) into your phone. These are usually not rooted ROMS and you can flash any offical versions with it.

Windows x64: windows operating system running at 64bit code. You can check if you have it by right clicking my computer, properties. Then it should show if you have 64 or 32bit respectively.

2.0 android: Your current phone should have android 1.5 according to you. It is listed as "firmware". 2.0 is the latest ROM (or operating system) for your phone. It has new features and what not, nicer icons ect... For now I keep reading samsung might release and OFFICIAL rom running on 2.xx android. The latest actual realeased offical ROMS from samsung are at 1.6 android though. People report problems with 1.6, I just got a gt-i7500 like you and it runs fine. You can go with the official update using 0din, or go with a "rooted" ROM such as galax0.... Search the FAQ, but this should get you started...

Hope it helps to get you up and running....

Wow - thanks a lot- I actually succeeded to load mp3 files to the phone - i think i did what you suggested and by luck the settings were right ;-)

Give JC1 a shot, its 1.6. Use 0din to flash. JC1 Donut is out!?

If you are adventurous, go for the galaxo rooted ROM. You should be able to use the JC1 file instead of the JB6 GALAXO 1.6.1 & RECOVERY 4.6.1 - Official Topic - GUIDA - HDblog - Forum Although you should be just fine with the standard factory JC1 1.6...

EDIT: There seems to be a new one that just came out too:

Found here: I7500 xejc4

Wiped NPS and installed drivers as directed.
Then, as I plug the phone it chirps gleefully while Windows announces
- SAMSUNG Mobile Modem and
- Samsung SAMSUNG Android USB Device.
Noted that Device Manager shows this latter twice under Disk drives and SAMSUNG Mobile Modem Diagnostic Serial Port (WDM) under Ports.
Next turned USB debugging on and installed ADB drivers as suggested on another thread.

go into settings>about phone>additional settings tick mass storage only
reconnect device and it should pick it up as a removable media but still you wont have access.
at this point pull down the notification bar on the device and enable the usb mass storage
