You have to have some kind of drivers. Just download kies and install it, then try to connect your device and the drivers are installed. I saw windows downloading some drivers when I first connected it but idk...
Its one time installation and you don't need to do it again.


Edit: I'm sure nokia had drivers too. They were installed with the pc software.

Nokia supports plug n play on all platforms. But Android supports plug n play only in Linux as Android is Linux. To enable plug n play in windows u need adb(which u call drivers).. Isn't that simple to understand?

Not true. Plug and play doesn't mean that it doesn't need the drivers. Actually, my gf's nokia e75 took about 1.5 hours to install drivers, even after installing the pc platform. Point is, the pc needs them to communicate with your device. So, wait once for them to install, and then you are done gor as long that you use this pc, or this mobile device.

But, it might be usefull to install kies from the samsung website... It has a driver package with it. Could speed up the process

Do you want to transfer files between computers and your device?
Did you get a micro sd adapter with the phone?
If yes, buy some card reader and plug it in every computer you want.

install kies in ur pc and after finishing go to the installation directory and there u will find a folder named driver/usb driver.go to the folder and just preserve the file. u can now uninstall kies and from now on u will have to just install the driver file that u extracted from the kies. by this way mini will be connected to ur pc without kies installed.

He wants to connect his device in any computer in the city, even in the computers that he doesnt have admin access.

Well probably u don't know. I won't give any explanation. For the mini to work directly on any pc, u can try pairing it with bluetooth if the pc has one or there is another way which I currently don't remember. Sony xperia phones does not need any drivers, they have an inbuilt app which does the work. If anyone could find out what that app is then the problem is solved. I think its something like 'sync'
Don't remember.
