    I would like to put some music on my S3 from my PC. When I connect the phone to the pc, it says "Connected as a media device" but only the camera window will pop up, even though Media device is checked. No files or anything else to work with. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Haven't been able to bring mine home yet, but pull down the notification menu while connect and see if there's anything about the connection. Usually there is and you can click on it and change the connection to USB storage or mass storage device.

    Pull down from notification bar gives 2 options. Media device, which is checked and Camera, which is unchecked but shows up on "My Computer".

    in another thread there was mention of some sort of software that needed to be installed on your computer because the mass storage protocol is not used in ICS

    You must have the Samsung device drivers installed. If you installed Kies, they are automatically installed (even if you don't use Kies). If you just want the drivers, they are available on the Samsung website.

    I finally downloaded kies. Took awhile. That was the problem. I've only had HTC phones and didn't need software

    Wow is it just me or does Kies take its time downloading? I guess the Sammy site is being bombarded today.
