    Samsung R451C hack, Contacts, USB

    Anyone know of a way to unlock/crack an R451C to provide USB / PC access to transfer an address book/contacts?

    Transfering to/from PC

    I just bought a USB data cable for it on EBay. It works fine for everything (ringtones, sounds, pics, etc.) but "contacts". I have Windows XP.

    Steve,
    Did you have to do anything special to get it to connect? I get "Hardware was not installed because the wizard cannot find the necessary software".

    Phone screen says it is "connected to PC"

    I also have win xp.

    Thanks,
    John

    No, it connected with no changes of settings or anything.

    Do you remember if win xp installed any drivers or anything?

    Mine also connects fine to Win XP without installing additional drivers...although I have had so many things installed on this computer there are probably non-standard drivers already on board.

    Also, bluetooth worked great for me. I was able to transfer the entire phonebook at once from two Motorola phones to the R451c. I also have backed up contacts to the PC with bluetooth.

    I figured out a way around it. I forget I have a mac laptop because I rarely use it but it recognized the phone with no problem.

    This allows me to transfer files with an extra step but I'll still have to figure out why the PC doesn't want to talk to the phone.

    Maybe it'll work when my bluetooth dongle gets here...

    I also bought a usb data cable, but neither my pc nor my laptop can locate a driver for this phone (sch-r451c). All I've found on Samsung's website is the user manual, no drivers. Suggestions? Thanks!

    I haven't spent any more time trying to solve it. For now my Mac laptop can access the phone just fine and my bluetooth dongle came in and that works via my pc so I'll just use one of those routes when I need to transfer files.

    Others seem to connect to their pc with no added drivers. I'm not computer savvy enough to speculate on the why's...

    check one setting on the phone itself before you attach the usb cable, it may or may not help

    hit the menu key navigate to settings then to phone settings then to pc settings and make sure that USB mass storage is selected.

    see if that helps any.

    On mine if there is a micro SD installed, the PC(win7) sees it as a removable disk(Drive K: in my case...it will depend on other drive mapping configuration on your particular machine). Without the SD card installed it sees it as Samsung cdma modem.(I think I rember having to google around to find the driver for THAT function) I have no idea how to use it as a modem though, and that would be a TOS no-no anyway, I'm sure. There is no way to access the built in storage at all AFAIK.

    I have discovered that the phone has no driver that will allow it to be seen by the computer - save for as a storage device per the micro SD card. If someone would WRITE a driver for the phone I'm sure we could all use Samsung's PC Studio and that would solve a lot of grief. If anyone has successfully connected to PC Studio, please let me know!
