Samsung Galaxy S is also called i9000 on the Samsung website http://www.samsung.com/in/consumer/mobile-phone/mobile-phone/touch-phone/GT-I9000HKAINU/index.idx?pagetype=prd_detail&returnurl=
If you start MyPhoneExplorer ver 1.8.0 & click on ‘File’->’Settings’->’Phone with Google Andriod OS’ & then take the mouse pointer to ‘Sample’ next to it you will see that Samsung i9000 is mentioned in it which is the nomenclature for Samsumg Galaxy S. so this phone is compatible with this s/w. Also mentioned here http://www.fjsoft.at/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8965&sid=bd29b3f5949597ab220c86627645474a
You have to remember two things here in this setup
1) If you want to connect via cable or by Bluetooth the settings will be different & you will have to reconfigure separately for each type of connection.
2) If you are connecting thru USB cable AND you happen to connect thru different USB port then your configuration will change & you will have to come to this section of ‘Setting’ to click again on the push button ‘Search for Device’.
Before starting I suggest that backups be made of important data on your phone also remember that 'Andriod' is still 'Work-In-Progress' . :) Now lets get to the setup. Close the s/w & connect the USB cable (or bluetooth dongle) & then start the s/w, you should see some balloons popping up in your task bar, let that process go on.
Click on ‘File’->’Settings’ then click on 'Connection' (seen in the left pane). (See below).
Click on ’Phone with Google Andriod OS’.
‘OBEX packet size’ should be ‘Autodetect’.
Select ‘Write log file’.
Remember that the COM port number & Baud rate number seen in the figure below maybe different from what you see in the s/w on your machine, do not change it.
At this point DO NOT CLICK ON 'Search for Device'. That will be done last when all selections are done. (Page 6)
Now make the selection as seen in the following picture.
Next click on ‘Startup’ in the left pane & the following window will be seen.
Next click on ‘Appearance’ in the left pane & the following window will be seen. Here you can change the 'Font' & 'First Day of the Week'
Next click on ‘Behaviour' in the left pane & the following window will be seen.
Next click on ‘Sync’ in the left pane & the following window will be seen.
As seen the picture immediately above 'Only MyPhoneExplorer' is selected, as syncronisation is being inside this s/w itself in case you want to sync with another s/w like MS Outlook, MS Outlook Express, Thunderbird, Windows Live Mail etc (depending on whether any of the above mentioned is installed on your computer), you will have to make the appropiate selection in 'Contacts', 'Calender', 'Notes' seen in picture above. Also the correct 'Sync protocol' should be selected. 'SyncML' is usually the universal standard but you might have to experiment here as the 'User Guide' is silent on this maybe the forum can help !!!
Next click on ‘Multi-Sync’ in the left pane & the following window will be seen.
Next click on ‘Advanced 1’ in the left pane & the following window will be seen.
Next click on ‘Advanced 2’ in the left pane & the following window will be seen. Here you can change the location of 'Photo Sync' folder (where photos are stored) & location of your database. Its preferable to keep them on a drive other than C:\ where the computer OS is stored.
After making all the selections as seen in the figures above are done, lets go back to 'Connection' again.
Click on ‘Search for device’. It should usually detect your phone without any problems, IN CASE it does not then you should play around with the ‘COM port’ selection depending on which USB port you have connected to & ‘baud rate’ to get it going. If it still does not, then post your problem on the forum (link given below) to get an answer from the developer.
Hope this helps :)
Forum for this s/w & can be useful in future for further reading about any bugs, shortcomings etc. They can be directly communicated to the developer for remedies.
After this done I suggest you take a 'Backup' by clicking on 'Extras' in the Menu bar & then clicking on 'Create Backup' before exploring any further :)
