scenario-two different spec'd machines both running XP. The GF has a samsung galaxy S3. Due to me fiddling around with samsung's god awful KIES software when she had an older samsung (so ages ago & a much older vsn of KIES) my own machine, whilst not now running KIES, sees the phone properly in windows. Her's whilst having d/l latest KIES, won't. It still won't if I use an older vsn of KIES. All she wants to do is open it with windows & use explorer to drag her photos off it.
So it seems to me I've got at least the drivers that will work. How do i copy these from mine to hers & install them please?
I did see this via google. Sound right to you experts?
Move Your Old Drivers to a New Computer
You'll find the files you need in your C:\Windows\System, C:\Windows\Inf, and C:\Windows\Help folders. Unfortunately, separating these files from the rest of those folders' content is a long, boring, and near-impossible procedure.
So don't do it. Instead, copy the complete contents of these folders (probably about 100MB) from your old computer to a single folder on your new computer. Call the new folder C:\drivers. And don't worry about wasting space--you won't have to keep that folder for long
