The new Galaxy S6 is powered by Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, and an Android 5.1 update can be expected in a couple of months. If you have received or are waiting to get your phone, this is the post you should start your exploration with. As explained earlier, Android is the sole system powering this super phone. It is necessary you install the per-requisite drivers on your computer before connecting your phone. Below, we have linked the latest USB driver package that supports the Samsung Galaxy S6. This driver package will ensure that all functions perform accurately and you don’t lead yourself into frustration.

The link below will you take you to the latest Android USB drivers provided by Samsung for various Operating Systems – Windows, Mac and Linux. This time round, Samsung decided to leave the SD Card functionality out of the equation making this tutorial even more important. The base specification of the Galaxy S6 comes with 32GB of storage so there is still a lot of space left for user data. These drivers are only for making your computer recognizing the S6 correctly. On the other hand, ADB and Fastboot drivers need to be manually downloaded from the Android SDK.

    I about lost my shit. Thank god for google. You can upload files to google drive and then download to computer or do what you will. You can also use icloud i think. Nothing else works, USB Connects and Disconnects on its own rapidly. I believe this is a driver error. This is on a PC with windows 10. They got their shit all messed up. Get it together already there is no reason why you shouldn’t be able to “plug and play” with any OS.

    Help needed desperately. I can’t transfer files from my device to my USB sticks. It doesn’t seem to matter which stick I use each transfer is getting stuck. The really strange thing is that initially each stick will work but then after a certain amount of transfers I’m getting an eaccess message.
