I picked up my tab this morning and have had a hell of a time mounting it as USB storage to transfer movies and pics ect... but I figured it out so I thought I'd share with the XDA community simply because there really isnt anything out there that I could find on Google.

1. download USB drivers from samsung: http://www.samsung.com/us/mobile/gal...alaxy+tab+10.1

2. install drivers

3. reboot pc

4. turn off usb debugging... VERY IMPORTANT AS IT IS ENABLED BY DEFAULT

5. plug in via usb

6. enjoy!!


If it works for you please hit the "thanks" button

Works to transfer "recognized" files extensions. However things like .mkv or .mpg make windows explorer crash. When I transferred an avi file it wanted to convert it. Seriously, WTF samsung? I loved your stuff but this is a bit much. I should be able to treat it like an SD card.

Been having the same problem. Transferring .wmv or .mov files makes my pc crash. Although I was able to plug it into a different pc and it was automatically recognized as USB and worked fine. I wonder if it has anything to do with my galaxy s drivers.

It works, but not as a removable storage device. It sees it as a portable device, which isn't as good.

This is pretty useless.. it's treated like Apple treats their devices... as some kind of media device and not just a regular drive.

Looks like a large oversight on Samsung's side.. can be easily fixed, luckily.
