    Hi folks. I want to transfer a file on to my Galaxy, to set it as a ringtone. When I connect the phone to my PC (running Win7), it doesn't do anything. My Device Manager doesn't even blink; but the phone starts to charge... What is up here? Thanx people

    Don't bother with drivers or Kies...this is far better:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sand.airdroid&hl=en

    Install on your phone from the play store, great interface on your PC - File transfer is so easy with this tool.

    Yes, you need a driver for the USB connection. Phil

    If you are going down this route... I strongly suggest you start with Kies...

    Kies | SUPPORT | SAMSUNG UK

    I still advise against it and just go for Airdroid from the playstore.

    What have you just installed?

    If it's drivers or KIES: you should be able to just plug the phone into the PC via USB; it should detect it and you can transfer files.

    If it's Airdroid; launch Airdroid on your phone > it will give you a website address for your pc and follow the instructions.

    The link I posted should take you to correct page, it does if I click on it, try right clicking on it and selecting copy link, then open a new tab in your browser and pasting it. Phil
