    Unable to preview pictures when connected to my pc

    I took some pictures at work today that I need to print out. Problem is, when I connect to my pc, I'm unable to see a preview of the picture so I'll know which ones to print. Am I missing a setting somewhere? I've tried connect via "media" and "camera" and no change. The file is visible but I can't see a preview as I have before.
    Any ideas?

    Can you change the view in the top of your window on your computer? Is it a windows or Mac? You know how you can change the thumbnails and size.

    yeah, I've changed the view to "thumbnails" which is always what I use to preview, but no luck.

    I had this problem too.

    Work around: copy a group of the pictures to your local drive. The local pics will show previews.

    Thanks Linds.....that's what I ended up doing. It's just strange that I can no longer preview them (while my phone is connected) before I copy them over to my hard drive.

    Yes I'm digging up an old thread from a google search I did. I have hundreds of photos on my phone and I don't want to load all of them on my laptop just to get the few I want. My old Galaxy S would show the photo previews, so this S3 won't? Has anyone found a fix for this??? or are these phones just another high tech load of crap?

    If you root the phone you can enable USB mass storage mode. Unfortunately without that mode the pc is unable read all the info from the device.

    TW ROMS still don't allow you to "preview" thumbnails, like we were able to on past devices. Maybe it's an AOSP thing?
    Welcome to the forum btw!

    Hey I'm glad you brought this up.
    I just tried it on my SG4 and it works with it!
    I can see previews and thumbnails!
