    Odin version tried out.

    When I plug in the phone with usb cable I see Added! in Odin.
    Also 0[COM3] is blue.
    I unplug the phone set it in download mode POWER,
    HOME, and VOLUME DOWN keys then Volume Up now in download mode.
    Connect the phone again.
    Nothing happens no Added! and Also 0[COM3] is empty grey.

    Resetted the phone 2 different cables tried all usb ports.
    All ports work when not in download mode when I set the phone in
    download mode (OME, and VOLUME DOWN keys then Volume Up now in download mode)

    Phone does not connect ? Like nothing is plugged in the laptop.

    Hi, welcome to AC!
    Try different computer or different ports but wouldn't be surprised a phone that old having hardware issue.

    I bought it new back in what year it came out ?
    It's working fine have more older phones I just wanted to try this out on this phone because when it goes wrong I don't mind.
    Tried different ports and usb cables.

    Maybe because I'am trying this out in a Virtualbox or should that work also?
