First-time User having trouble connecting to PC
After a year and a half of suffering with a Blackberry 8320 (OS would keep corrupting every month, requiring a wipe and reinstall), I finally got myself an Android phone this afternoon in the form of the Samsung Captivate.
I'm currently taking my baby steps (please bear with me in the next few days as I probably post many stupid questions), so please assume I know nothing.
At the moment, I'm trying to figure out how to connect my phone to my PC running Windows 7 64-bit. When I plugged in the USB, nothing happened. I went and installed Samsung Kies, and set the USB settings on my phone for "Samsung Kies", and then plugged it in, but still nothing. Hunted down and installed what I assume to be drivers for the phone on the Samsung website, and tried again, but still nothing. I tried all the other modes under USB settings, but nothing is showing up anywhere (with the exception of two phantom "Removable Storage" drives on Mass Storage mode). I even switched my homescreen back to Touchwiz (was using LauncherPro), but no dice. I'm sure I'm missing something obvious, and I'd really appreciate it if someone would point it out to me.
I mean, this thing is practically a computer in and of itself, but I'd like to be able to put some videos files on there to use the full potential of that beautiful screen...
