Here are the Samsung USB drivers.

 

If you want to sync the phone with the computer then you can download Samsung Kies software which included the USB drivers but it looks like Kies 3 does not support Vista.

 

Good Luck.

thanks for that link :) downloading it now. which is going to take forever bc I'm on wifi. I will update to let anyone else whose looking for something similar know how it goes.

 

 

 

 

 

I must say I went to samsung live chat when I was first given this laptop. I told samsung the computer told me I needed to go to the manufacturer for the driver. they put up a link and i clicked it. however its never worked. now when i connect my phone to the laptop a pop up comes up from the computer and says.... "usb device attached to this computer has malfunctioned".

 

Guess I'll know more once the driver downloads and installs.

Just remove or delete any registry repair programs. Try to uninstall all the USB ports in device manager & rebooting.
