[Q] Got mine, but having a serious problem...
I am very impressed with my Galaxy Tab 10.1, but I'm having a glaring problem: my PC won't detect it as a storage device. This is the one that came with 3.1 out of the box, and I assumed that it would connect to my PC and play perfectly with it. I guess I've been spoiled by how my HTC Evo always connected perfectly to my PC with no issues or no drivers for me to hunt down and install, because it didn't work.
Okay, no sweat, I just need to download the drivers and install them, right? I did just that as well. I connect the tablet to the PC (which runs Windows 7 64-bit), and the PC gives me notifications saying my device is ready to use, but I can't find it as a storage device at all under My Computer. I do find it in my "Devices and Printers" list, but it doesn't show up with the rest of my devices at the top (it shows up with unspecified devices or something at the bottom of the list with a generic-looking icon representing it).
Okay, I probably need to just uninstall the drivers and maybe reinstall them and try again, right? Did just that, no dice. The exact same thing happens. On the tablet, I also probably need to point out that the only thing I get is the "USB Debugging Detected" notification or whatever it says while Windows 7 doesn't pick it up.
So now I ask what everybody else did to get theirs recognized. And I already tried switching USB ports and checking for updates. No dice there, either.
