    Default PC doesn't see Tab 10.1

    I've got a Tab 10.1. When I connect it via USB to my laptop, running Vista, it's recognized in Windows Explorer and I can transfer files to and from the tablet.

    But when I connect it to my desktop, running Windows 7 64bit, I can't see the tablet. The PC makes its standard sounds when I plug it in or unplug it, so it recognizes that something's happened, but I never see the tablet show up in Windows.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Samsung has a program that connects your device to your computer it's called Kies, it should be able to help you.

    Transfer, Sync & Manage Music, Movies, Photos, Contacts and Calendars with Kies

    Thanks, I'll give it a try. Odd, though, as I haven't installed that on my laptop.

    I run Windows 7 64bit & it shows up on mine. After you plug it in & the sounds all stop, click on "my computer" & it should be there. It is on mine.

    You might need to make sure you have the 64bit drivers installed for the tab. This SHOULD happen automatically, but perhaps its not on your computer.

    For the wifi model check here.....

    bubbadog, that's what I've been doing, but it doesn't show up.

    Rich, that did the trick, thanks. Well, downloading, installing, rebooting, and then disconnecting and reconnecting.

    Thanks again.

    I have needed to do this before. When I first got the Tab, it connected, ran through the install sequence just fine and I was able to explore the Tab in My Computer. More recently, I had a lot of trouble getting it to pick it up. If you do a google search on how to connect the Tab via USB, there is a lot of talk about USB Connections being an option in settings, but its not there anymore. It seems like they took some settings away, I'm not sure if the intention was to make it harder to connect via USB...
    Regardless, I was eventually also able to get it to connect, and I think it was a matter of uninstalling and then reinstalling, so on and so on.
    And regarding Kies, is it just me or will it only work with WiFi, and not USB? WiFi transfers are terrible.

    This is really easy.... You are using the wrong cord. Here is one that will solve your problems.
