Galaxy Tab – Sync Transfer Files, Music, Photos with PC

Samsung Galaxy TabIt’s time for Tab was the caption of Galaxy Tab when it launched and now it’s time for a better Tab. In this tutorial we would be going through process of transferring files, music and photos from your PC to Galaxy TAB or vice versa.

We have been using Samsung KIES to connect our mobile phone with PC to transfer files to and fro between your PC and mobile. The latest version of Samsung KIES 2.0 is compatible with Galaxy Tab GT P7510 and Galaxy Tab GT P7500. So that means that you can use Samsung KIES to transfer files between your PC and your Galaxy Tab.

Here is the procedure on how to sync, transfer files from PC to Galaxy TAB or from TAB to PC –

  • Make sure that you have downloaded the latest version of Samsung KIES 2.0 from the official site and installed it on your PC.
  • Now using the PC Connectivity/Charging USB wire, plug the larger end into the Tab and smaller under into the PC. Your windows 7 PC would recognize the TAB and it would be ready for use.Driver Software Installation Galaxy Tab
  • Once your PC recognizes the Tab it would be located under connected devices in the Samsung KIES software. The connect devices tab is located on the extreme left side of the KIES 2.0 interface.
  • Now click the device model number from the sidebar.
  • In Samsung KIES there are few options while transferring content. You would be on the default basic information. The other three options available are Sync, Import/Export and Backup & Restore.
  • Click on Sync which is the used to transfer the personal information and the multimedia content to and fro from your computer or from the tab.Samsung Kies Galaxy Tab Sync Tab
  • For example: If I want to sync my KIES library of music (my PC library), click on Sync music and then choose which playlist or songs. Once you are done with selecting all the music or playlists that you want to sync with your tab, click on Sync at the top right hand corner of the screen. You would get the confirmation message on the right hand bottom of the KIES interface.
  • In the similar ways you can do it for Photos other files.

Manually Transfer Data in KIES

For the person who are looking to transfer data manually from your Galaxy TAB or computer, you need to select media type that you want to transfer located under the Library located on the left sidebar bottom.

  • Let say I want to transfer music, click on Music.
  • Now click and hold on that particular file or item and then drag that on to your tab or vice versa to perform the reverse action.
  • While transferring pictures, you need to select the photos and then click on Transfer to Device located at the top. And this will automatically do it for you.
  • In similar ways you can do it for Video and other files.

That makes it easy to keep sync your content and further along your Galaxy Tab is completely sync with your PC.

      Does your PC come shipped with iTunes??
      “Stupid Apple, wasting my time installing iTunes just to transfer songs onto my iPod…”
      Sorry Teoh, until that wonderful time where we all have hoverboards, jetpacks and a universal OS that every single device comes shipped with, we are just going to have to download apps and programs.

    Hi Friends,
    I have just purchased the samsung Galaxy S Y 5360 model,i would like to transfer my contacts from the PC suite software of my old samsung Duos W259 to the new handset, Is it possible to transfer this data from the old PC suite of samsung to the new KIES software provided along with the handset? I have already downloaded the latest version of Kies from the site, as I got a notification after i installed the version from the Cd to upgrade so i have upgraded to the latest Kies version update date:14-11-2011. your timely help will be appreciated.

    I want to know about Kies 2.0 version. I tried to download that version and got it, but….when I tried to install , there was problem I meet, that is “to connect internet connection”…..that is why?

    • Yogesh Patel

      Maybe, its asking for the upgrade of the KIES as soon as you have installed KIES application which maybe a little older edition whose update is notified to during the installation. Might be removing the “check for latest version” option during the process of installation willn’t give you this problem.

      On which firmware you are on? Tried updating the KIES to the latest version? You can also try KIES via WIFI!

    Yogesh, with my Nokia I am able to sync documents kept in one particular folder (Briefcase) on both phone and PC. This makes sure the most recent file is always available to me automatically, whether I am using phone or PC to work. Is there a way to do this with my Galaxy P7500? At the moment I am manually copying files from one device to another but I am never sure on which device is the most up-to-date version of that file. Short of it is, I guess, differerence between copying and syncing, and how do I sync my documents (word, excel, PDF) between PC and P7500? Thanks

    • NeaL Pradeep

      October 24, 2011 at 2:14 pm

      you can make use of the other tools like “Dropbox” to sync the documents!

      • Miken

        October 27, 2011 at 11:42 am

        Thanks NeaL, this is a “cloud” application? I really need a more localised interface/tool.

    Kies? It’s the BIGGEST piece of CRAP software I have ever seen in my life. Refuses to install. On both a Core 2 Duo with 3 gb ram with win xp and a quad-core windows 7 8 gb machine. It took 2 hours to TRY to install and failed after that. It kept updating the drivers.

    I’ve seriously seen bad software in my life. However, Kies has taken the award.

      Have you ensure that everything was perfect? Where you on the exact file location where those files appear or did you place them on the correct folder.

    Hi. I would like to add. using File Explorer and activating Http sharing or FTP sharing is easier and faster to use than kies, and less error-prone.

    • Yogesh Patel

      September 20, 2011 at 9:24 am

      Yes, that also another way to do it.

    • Marvs Alipio

      How did you activate HTTP sharing and FTP sharing in your tablet?

      • Lizzam

        December 10, 2011 at 6:25 am

        Simple. Install File Expert. Tap on Share My Contents. There you can choose between FTP or web access.
