    Default Can't transfer files to PC -- Wont recognize device

    Using a samsung galaxy s2 - epic 4g touch;

    I used to(a while ago) be able to just plug my usb into my computer and phone and drag and drop photos no problem. Now I'm having a multitude of problems. For instance;

    -Will constantly make the 'bloop' noise on my computer that a usb device is connected(OVER AND OVER) but does not ever show the phone connected( i tried multiuple usb 2.0and 3.0 ports; as well as cleaning phone, and phone cable)

    -Will occasionally go into I guess driving mode or dock mode? when connected(the 'dashboard/homescreen') goes to a weird set of screens I've never seen before or used

    I've downloaded Kies Air, Sprint USB device driver, Samsung device driver; and now plugging my phone in to my computer doesn't even recognize that anythigns there at all.

    I am now uninstalling all the sprint, samsung, etc things that I have and starting from scratch...

    Any help getting all my files ported over to my computer...Would be great. I browsed a lot of threads and posts but many seem to be outdated or not relevant...So thanks in advance!

    Welcome to Android Central! Two things to try first:

    1. Use a wireless file transfer solution like or .

    2. Try wiping the phone's system cache partition using these instructions: [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.. Sometimes clearing some of the temporary system gunk out can make things work a little better.

    Just downloaded air droid and about to download all sd contents and phone contents as zip file via local connectivity, sounds like the best and only way to get all my files/pictures/ringtones/etc in one go?

    Probably the easiest way. Then just unzip it on your computer.

    Okay, well I copied entire SD_CARD directory and dowloaded as zip. It copied a 1.4gigabyte zip folder, trying to unzip it(with 7ip and winrar) says file is corrupt or missing components :/

    Hmm. Are you able to transfer files individually instead of as a zip file?
