    No thumbnail image or preview while sync'd

    When I sync my S3 to my laptop, it doesn't show thumbnail images. It also won't load an image preview in the preview pane. I know this was not an issue with my previous device (Blackberry). Is there something I need to do to make this work?

    Hello Suede.
    I have never hooked up my phone to the computer, but I will be doing that later today. I'll check back later to see if you have a solution..
    If not, hopefully I will be able to offer one.

    Hello Suede.
    Well I put my phone on my computer and got the same result as you.
    I am guessing it is due to the mpd format of the phone?
    I read some where this could be changed to be more like a Moto device when hooking
    Up to a pc. Sorry I do not have the link handy and is for rooted users only.

    I found this option. It defaults to MTP. I also tried it on PTP. It apparantly installed some sort of driver afterward, but it still doesn't show thumbnails.

    The search continues.

    Hello Suede. I came across the post I was referring to about changing the way the S3 mounts as USB Mass Storage. It is for rooted users only. It seems a little tedious in that you have to rerun the script after any reboot.
    I am not rooted and won't be for awhile still, so I cannot comment on how well it does work.
    I would say you should also be comfortable with rooting and general "messing around" with your phone before doing this.

    The other thing I noticed is trying to transfer files back to the phone from the computer was just painful. Samsung really borked this feature up in my opinion. The older method of selecting different USB modes was way better.

    Easy UMS is for the i9300. Is that the model you have?

    Thanks for the posts, guys.
    I was hoping for an easy way to do this without rooting. At least I now better understand the issue.

    I have the Verizon model, but the one I referenced in post # 6 is said to work for Verizon. But again, still need root.
