    Default Re: Can't see Phone SD Cards in Windows Explorer

    Another thought.... maybe its because you were tied to your wife's and, because of that, I refuses to accept that another phone might accessed. I had that problem between my phone and the wife's also. I got around it by creating a new user on my laptop for my wife and was able to do it that way.

When mine is plugged in you cannot see the SD cards show up in Explorer. Did the soft reboot and factory reset on the phone and no drives show up on Explorer. USB cords work fine. Different USB ports do the same thing. Tried 3 different PC's with my phone and none of them showed the phone in Explorer. Samsung's Chat help couldn't help...Samsung's Phone Support couldn't help...AT&T replaced the phone. New phone, still no luck. The only difference between my phone and my wife's is that mine has the UCLG1 update and her's doesn't. I've tried Kies and it also apparently doesn't work with the S3. I haven't tried Kies Air yet. Any other suggestions or is the update what is keeping Explorer from seeing my phone?
    This is how to enable it - Scroll down the notification after you connect the USB cable to PC, and choose media - See this blog post explained with screenshots -

    YES!!!! I removed and replaced the battery, and VOILA! my PC was able to read both card and phone (both did not appear in Windows Explorer prior.)

    Thank you Roger! Your idea of adjusting the SD card clip worked for me today.

    In the case of my Galaxy Note 3, I removed the SD card, pressed down on the metal tab that holds the SD card in place, reinserted the SD card, reconnected the USB cord and the SD card showed up immediately in Windows Explorer.

    I had been forced to remove the Otter Box Defender case and then remove the SD card and insert it into a SD card reader in order to transfer files between my computers at home and at work for the past week or so and it was getting to be a pain to go through all of that trouble.

    I don't know what made the SD card clip loosen up, but thank you again for the simple fix!
