Updated on June 28, 2013

Samsung Galaxy S 2 is no doubt a great phone. It was once a super phone. The gorgeous 4.3 inches AMOLED display is the USP of the phone. But it is of no value if you cannot load some great movie clips from your PC to this phone. That’s why we need to connect the Samsung Galaxy S2 to PC via USB cable. But the problem starts here. Some Samsung Galaxy S’s are not going to connect easily with the PC.

Samsung Galaxy S 2 I9100 is the most notorious for not easily connecting with the PC. You may often find error massages like “Android MTP failed”. I hope this guide will help you to solve this problem.

What to do to connect my Samsung Galaxy S2 to PC ?

1) Install Samsung KIES latest version.

2) On your mobile go to Menu> Settings> Applications> USB Debugging.

3) Enable USB Debugging.

4) Connect your Galaxy S 2 with your PC using an USB Data Cable.

5) From the mobile status bar enable “connect usb storage”.

6) You have done it. Now explore your mobile from your PC and transfer songs, videos and other things as you please.

Another Method without KIES or Samsung PC Suit

5) Now connect your Samsung Galaxy S2 with the PC with an USB data cable.
