    It is only logical that when I connect the usb cable to the tablet and my pc, the pc should detect the tablet and autorun pops up. Sadly, this is not the case with my Galaxy Tab 10.1. When plugged in, the tablet indicates that the MTP is initialised but on my Windows 8 pc, there is no sign of it. The only thing that happens is that the pc makes the sound it does when a usb device is plugged into the port and less than 5 sec later, it makes the sound it does when the device is unplugged while it is still plugged in. Please help me, this is an extremely frustrating problem. :(

    The how-to video cuts off just before “unable to connect to device” error message. Kies is a piece of crap that cannot be installed.
