    You have to copy the pictures to your hard drive to see the thumbs.
    Sorry

    I have the same problem, it makes it hard to transfer specific pictures to the PC. My old HTC EVO 4G didn't have any problem with this, I just couldn't access the SD card from the phone while it was plugged into the PC.

    Let everything go into your dropbox, then delete them off your phone

    The way it was explained to me was phones using MTP and PTP do not have the ability to show the thumbnails. Your old evo read your memory card as a drive. These phones don't. You best work around would be to remove your sdcard and use a card reader to transfer your pictures. Sorry....

    I have this problem with Samsung Note 2 too. The workaround solution is to use Samsung Kies.

    I have the same problem. I see thumbnails but no viewable pictures in the thumbnails only a generic pic for all photo's on my phone. I have been on with Verizon tech support who have been unable to solve it. No matter which way I connect all thumbnail views only show generic pics and not actual photo thumbnamil. I guess the only way is import all 900 photo's from my S3 and then delete those I don't want on my PC? Crappy interface if you ask me! I asked for an Iphone here at work but got this crappy Galaxy. Funny thing is that on my home computer (An iMac) the Galaxy shows the thumbnails in iPhoto and I can selectively import on my MAC! Go figure!

    So it sounds like a crappy Windows issue, and not a crappy S3 issue, doesn't it?

    Fanboy much?

    no that would be the s3 issue. windows was around long before the s3. and most other phones work with windows!

    Sounds like you should do some research on the changes Android has made starting with JB.

    Give us a little more information on what you've done. When you say "imported," do you mean you copied the images from the phone onto your computer's hard drive? Or are you trying to view the images while they're still on the phone?

    Also, you say it's not saving "all" pictures to the card. Does that mean it's saving some to the card, but some to the internal memory? In the phone app, tap the gear icon, then scroll down to the bottom of all the options. What is displayed next to "storage"? If it doesn't say "memory card", tap there and select the memory card option.

    My problem is the 99% of the time my computer doesn't see my phone which is kind of a pain when i want to charge it and read the files off of it

    Well, that's a completely different issue, I think. Are you connecting to a USB port on the PC, or through a hub? If a hub, try using a port on the PC itself. And if you haven't already, try using a different cable, or a different USB port. Or even just reboot the PC.

    Perhaps check to see if there is an updated driver file on the net?

    Another suggestion is to create a file titled "To Computer" or along those lines...move pics there on your phone then connect to PC and move the files that way. However, when moving big files or large quantities of them, it's often faster to dismount the SD card, and use a card reader. Or at least I have noticed it's faster.

    Try this: [USB Drivers][10-06-2012] SAMSUNG USB Drivers for Mobile Phones [x86 & x64] - xda-developers

    See if that helps. You may have to also install 7zip, but its a good program, and may come in handy if your choose to download other ROMs and other files.

    The simplest method i figered out is >>
    1. make a folder in ext or int sd card. Name it say mobile2pc
    2. Use any file explorer say es file manager.
    3. Look for thumbnails in android > cut and paste in mobile2pc folder.
    4. Keep filling it up till ur done. Simply connect to pc via usb and shift.
