    I can connect my Galaxy S via Bluetooth to my laptop. From the laptop, I can browse the Galaxy S, but I can see only folders and not files. Every folder shows 0 items.

    How do I transfer files from and to the Galaxy?

    I have just found out that each file can be made visible/non-visible. Under MyFiles, menu, More, there is "Bluetooth visibility". It allows each file to be set visible/invisible. The default is not visible. How do I make all files visible. It is just too troublesome to manually set each file.


    PS: Is this an Android feature or a Samsung one?

    I just ran across the same issue on a Samsung Galaxy S i9000, stock android 2.3.6.

    Did you ever find a way to make all files in a folder visible for BT at the same time, without selecting each one - one at a time?


    This might be a security:rolleyes: feature.

    Have you tried using the Kies Air or AllShare Play apps that came with the S3? Both are a great way to transfer files from phone to computer without having to use bluetooth.

    Both of those require internet access and/or access to same router. Bluetooth does not require internet access or router which is why users use Bluetooth.
