    You know that most phone's vendors "force" you to use their own apps to upload/download files between your phone and computer.

    As you also know, KIES is heavy, use a lot of resource with many processes and startup items, and is not very necessary (unless u need to update your firmware).

    So there is how to deal without it :

    1- if Kies already installed:


    - Uninstall it but keep the driver (dont check the box)
    - Connect your phone via usb
    - Normally a "removable disk" icon appears on your computer panel but when clicking on it , it says "please insert a disk in removable disk...
    - Dont panic, normally your phone taskbar should show an usb icon
    - Scroll down the bar, now you should see under ongoing, "usb connected - select to copy files to/from your computer"
    - Tap on it
    - The Android logo appears with "connect storage to pc" button, tap on it
    - A popup will appear, tap ok
    - Your phone will connect then a window will open showing your phone files and in your computer panel the icon of "removable disk" will show the phone disk space.
    - Done

    2- if Kies not installed

    - Just Download and install the usb driver (not kies): http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=961956
    - then do the step above.


    Thanks :D
