Samsung Phone Software - A Guide to Samsung PC Studio

samsung pc studio checklist

Samsung is one of the major players in the mobile communications industry. Not only are their phones some of the most popular on the market, they develop Samsung phone software. Some of it is Samsung-specific while others enhance any mobile experience. The one constant with Samsung phone software is that it innovates and raises the bar. A great example of this, and the software that this guide will focus on, is Samsung PC Studio.

Samsung PC Studio Checklist

1. There are at least five versions of Samsung PC Studio and each of those has multiple subversions. Verify that you are using the correct version for your phone model. Secondly, ensure you are using the latest version of that software. At Samsung’s website, you can enter your model number, and they will give you the appropriate software.

2. Your phone may not include the data cable that you need. In that case, you’re going to have to buy it. Opt for the least expensive option. There’s not much difference other than price in the range. Double-check that you are buying the right cable for your phone. The computer needs a male end, as do most Samsung phones, so you will likely need a male-male USB cable.

3. You may need to install drivers depending on the version that you are using. PC Studio I and PC Studio II generally do not require drivers because those phones use a serial cable. However, the newer software may require USB drivers if they have not been previously installed. You may use any drivers included with the cable, the software, and the phone.

4. If you are using an IrDA port or a Bluetooth dongle rather than a hard connection, then you will have to use the drivers included with that hardware. Best practice is to install those drivers and test that hardware prior to installing the Samsung phone software and connecting the phone.

How to Install a Samsung PC Studio

1. If you haven’t already, download Samsung PC Studio. It’s completely free, and you can access it on Samsung’s website at the Download Center. It’s also possible to download it free via websites like CNET and Tucows. Samsung does sell $50 bundles that include the software and a USB cable but this is unnecessary. Any USB cable will do. Make sure you download the appropriate language version, and make sure you save the file to an easy-to-find location.

2. Now, find that file, and double-click it to begin the installation process of the Samsung phone software. The installer will configure it to install in a default location. For most users, this will be fine, but you can change the location by selecting the ‘Browse’ button. Once the download is set to install the Samsung phone software in the appropriate location, press ‘Next’, and finally, press ‘Finish’.

3. If you chose to have an icon on your desktop or toolbar, click that now. Otherwise, click ‘Start’, ‘All Programs’, and then ‘Samsung PC Studio’. If the Samsung phone software runs, then connect your Samsung phone to your computer via a USB cable, and then verify the connection with the Samsung phone software.

Samsung PC Studio Tips & Tricks

• Always install Bluetooth, IrDA, and USB drivers prior to installing the Samsung phone software such as the PIMS or PIM & File Manager. This avoids potential conflicts.

• Once you have installed those drivers, make sure to install the PIMS or PIM & File Manager. Start it, go into the setting, and configure it properly for port and port speed. In PC Studio 3, there are additional necessary settings in ‘Connection’ under ‘File’.

• Always transfer between the computer and the phone via the File Manager, which is available under the Tool menu or as a button to the right of the Print button.

• Always pay attention to the format and size of the files you upload from the computer to the phone. Failure to do so causes corruption and other issues.

• It is easy to put files in the wrong location on the phone. Pay particular attention to the destination folder when uploading. Make sure music files go in the music folder, gif files in the image folder, so on and so forth.
