Ok, to try and clarify...I have had all of the Samsung Galaxy S phones except the S5. I've moved all my photos & screen shots from them to my pc over time, generally via Kies or usb transfer. I've noticed that I have now got a huge number of .png files dated from about 2012 onwards that I can't open. Previous png files can be opened-they appear to be screenshots or the like. So I don't know what has happened. They can't be opened using any of the options on my pc. (I recently changed to Windows 10 from 8, but it was doing this prior to that) I can't re save them because they can't be opened, nor does changing the file name allow them to be opened.
I've also noticed that my current S6 makes all my screenshots .png files as well. The only way around this at the moment is to upload them to Google drive and change it to a jpeg file at the time. I have to do this for each shot one at a time. I'm assuming I can then move these across from Google drive as jpeg.
So, I need to know how to change the default on my S6 from .png to .jpeg for screen shots. How to change my previous .png files back to jpeg so I can open them! I have copied all of them to a usb stick and tried to open them on my work computer, but that also won't open them under any program. I realise that isn't an Android issue in itself, but as all of these images have come from my Galaxy S phones originally, I don't want to delete them without being able to see them as I might want to keep them...but without knowing what they are...
When I upload jpeg pictures from my pc to my samsung s5 out of 93 only 5 open up the rest are a black screen with mountain image and exclamation mark. I have deleted from sd card and tried 3 times with same results
Every time I connect my Samsung Galaxy S5 to my iMac, I get a message that it cannot locate the device. The cable is good, I use it to charge my S5, and it works just fine. How to move files from iTunes to my Galaxy S 5?
I have had the SGS S2 for almost two months now, whenever I transfer pictures and music between folders with my external SD Card or to my Phone Storage, they disappear.I can't remember how exactly I moved them, but I remember the last time I cut the files from one folder and pasted to another, and they all just disappeared.
I regularly get .eml attachement files on my Samsung Focus with Mango. I can't get them to open. I'm using the built in Oultook email email client. I have Exchange. (.eml files are emails that are attached to an email.) A friend who has the same phone says he can open them. Could that be? What could I do to get them open?
I wonder if anyone here knows how to load standard subtitles files (.srt) while playing video files (like .avi) on my SGS2. There's an idle "Subtitles" button on the bottom right of the player's menu, which I hadn't been able to use. Should I try a different one from the Android market?
I got a Samsung Rogue for Christmas and the user's manual is not very helpful. I setup the mobile email for my yahoo account but can't figure out how to open jpg files that are either attached or emedded in the email. Also is there a way to adjust the sensitivity of the touch screen, it takes a lot of pressure to select the options.
My s6 won't fully download emails with pdf file att. I've hit the load more button but when you try to open it comes up with warning email must be fully downloaded before att can be read .the emails can be read from my pc? ?
All my various folders from my tablet's OneDrive were transferred automatically to my Nokia Lumia's OneDrive. However, all the files in my "Favourites" folder show as only 1kb each and have the words "Just me" under each entry. None of them will open. When I try to open one, a warning comes up stating:" We couldn't open the file. Make sure you're connected to a Wi-Fi network" (Which of course I am). Maybe I need an app to open these "Favourite" websites. But which one?
I have an S2 and wanted to show someone my website. Whenever it tries to connect, the URL at the top changes from what I type and an "m" appears in the middle. I have asked friends to try the address and it loads just fine.
So now I want to try hiemdall as I am told it is much more reliable.
I have downloaded Heimdall 1.3.1 for windows 7 32bit. I want to flash the litening rom but when I extract the tar the files that I get are:
Factory fs, disc image file Modem.bin, BIN file zimage, file (type just says file)
When I try to put factoryfs in that partition heimdall comes up with a message that it expects a rts file.? Modem is pretty straight forward, but what kind of file is the zimage is it an actual zimage file to go into that partition or does it go somewhere else?
I am new to this forum and the Samsung Galaxy S2. When I download anything from my PC onto the phone it goes straight into My Files. I cannot then get anything in My Files to save to a ringtone or notification?
I'm trying to listen to a radio broadcast via the Australian Football League's website (url..)When I click the radio station button the browser displays a message to either install Microsoft Silverlight or open the link in the default media player.Selecting the media player option then brings up options to open using either the Video Player or the Internet.If I select Video Player a message is displayed "UNABLE TO PLAY VIDEO".If I select Internet an ASF file is downloaded. If I click on the file, the Video Player is opened and a message is displayed "UNSUPPORTED FILE TYPE"
just wondering where the APK files are stored on the SGSii when you download them from the AM. You see I have Amazon Mobile on my phone but my Galaxy 10.1 tab can't seem to get it in the AM.I was going to have a go at copying the APK across and seeing if I could get it to install that way but obviously need to know where to find them first. I am rooted and have root explorer.
for some reason today, I can't open any links in my emails on my S2. I get an error message for them saying 'web page not available'.my wireless connection is working on my laptop and the phone is set up to use the same network.
I found the caches under my files but it won't let me open them on my phone. I also tried connecting my phone to the computer with the usb chord and opening from my pc but some won't open. How do i view them?
Just one thing I can't confirm. Does the bottom USB port have a slide dust cover like my SGS does?Looking at pics seems its just open and exposed. I know if i leave the cover open on my SGS it soon fills up with dust pretty quick!
I had lots of music in my galaxy s2 phone memory and then moved it all over to the sd card when I bought one. Now when I open up the music player (the standard one that came bundled up with the phone) I get 2 of every track when I open up an album, one track plays and the other one gets the message " the player does not support this type of file". I have completely deleted the whole music folder from the phone memory so where is the phone finding these duplicate files that will not play and how do I get rid of them
I got a Samsung Galaxy S II last week for the first time, and I noticed something odd. I can connect to my home secured Wi-Fi network just fine using the network credentials, but I can't seem to use free Wi-Fi networks like McDonalds for example when I am out and about...
The phone says that I have connected, but complains that I have no network connection at those times.
