No, it's a driver issue. The computer can't identify the device, whether I mount the sd card or not. I do keep trying Mass Storage as a mode - over & over again.
But no matter which driver I use, the phone shows in my computer's Device Manager as a device that's disabled by Windows because no driver is loaded. From the Device Manager, I can do a Driver Update. But when I do this, and send it to the folder with the USB drivers in it, Windows reports the best driver is already installed! Yet it refuses to use it!
I have found four or five different places to get the 64-bit drivers, including Samsung's own website. But all of them fail for some stupid reason.
I work on computers for a living, and consider myself a Windows expert because I have to be in order to fix these kind of things. But all I can figure is that I just have not found the right driver to work on this combination, for whatever reason or another.
