    Default Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0: Usb device not recognized.

    Hi!

    I've got a little problem with my galaxy tab 2. It won't connect to my pc. It says usb device not recognized. I'm running android 4.1.2. The computer is running windows 8 64-bit and samsung kies is installed.

    I've tried on my netbook to which is running windows xp 32-bit, but no luck.

    Could it be the usb-cable?

    That or a different port. But something else to try is downloading and installing drivers and restarting the PC. But since 2 different PC are showing the same problem, it most likely is the cable.

    I've tested all the usb-ports on both computers with the same results. I've tested uninstalling and installing both kies and the android usb drivers on both computers, but with no luck. When I connect the cable to the pc it's charging, but the computer won't recognize it. When I plug it in into the power outlet in the wall it charges just fine. So I think it has to be the cable.

    Or am I wrong

    Some cables are charging cables and only have the ability to charge your Tab. Try restarting your Tab and if this doesn't work, change the cable. When you plug in the cable to your computer it may take 15 seconds to be recognized. I think this has to do with spyware software! So wait for this to happen!
    The cables are available on Ebay for a couple bucks each so I always have a spare for charging and data!

    Hope this helps!

    Cable may have gone bad. I would replace it.

    It's a data transfer and charging cable. In Sweden, those cables goes around 23 dollars or 150 SEK. Found those cables on Amazon for around 4 dollars, but if I buy of Ebay the delivery time is 3 weeks.

    No idea. I honestly wouldn't be inclined to try it.
