I have had problems with this to. Samsung doesn't have the Samsung PC Studio under the R351. Only a manual which is still in Spanish even though it says it's in English. Windows 7 says that Samsung doesn't support this phone any more or something like that. I was able to get my computer to charge it via the usb link but that was about it. There could be another program that might be able to connect to the phone. If I get anything to work, I'll let you know.

I had hours of fun with this one too
Just go to Tools in the Samsung
with your USB cable connected
and click on 6.Mass Storage.
It will automatically install needed drivers

I can't really follow your directions. Which samsung studio are you using?

ok... to confirm... what he was saying is that you must connect the phone to the computer. it should come up with found new hardware(with win xp). close that. on your phone, press the centre button. go to tools/settings, then tools. then press "5. Mass Storage". choose the option "connect to pc" and your computer should pick it up as a mass storage device. if you have the microsd card installed, it should also pick up the mmc storage device. once everything is done installing, go to my computer, open up the removable drive assigned to the phone, click on the folder "My_Music" and place your music in there. If your phone doesnt have it (you dont have any music downloaded) create the folder "MY_MUSIC" and it should help speed things up.

NOW bobs your uncle

All you have to do is put the Micro sd cared in the phone connect the cable and bam you are connected! Do not change USB mas storage name,, just put the card in ....

In reply to: sch-r351 pc doesnt say found new hardware anymore..when i connect the usb just makes a sound but nothing else comes up other than the virus checker for scanning! any solutions for the usb driver for this phone would help and thanks...or any ideas as to why the pc doesnt recognise the phone..

I found the "Music" folder better. The Music player in the phone couldn't find the MP3 files I placed in the "My_Music" folder.
