I have connected my samsung fascinate to my computer via usb. My computer doesnt see it. So, I tried all sync, it has been sitting here for 30 minutes with the rotating symbol going round and round and not doing anything else. I have tried using verizons version of media player, computer does not see the phone at all.  I want to put my music on the phone and I am getting frustrated.

 Do you want the playlists in addition to the music, or just the music? Verizon's Media Manager will not sync the playlists along with the music. There is another program that someone turned me onto, and that is iSyncr and iSyncr WiFi. It uses iTunes on your computer, and syncs it with the computer via USB (iSyncr only), or via wireless if you have it in your house, or wherever the computer is with your music (iSyncr and iSyncr WiFi) . iSyncr is $2.99 and iSyncr WiFi is $.99 . It was well worth the purchase for me.

I connect to a Win 7 64 bit computer, no problem, I did not load any drivers from Samsung, also did not load that huge program Verizon wants me to load every time I mount my SD card. I also have no trouble connecting to my Win XP 32 bit laptop.

 

I will tell you this, I have never being able to mount my SD card to my wife's Vista 64 bit OS, and I have tried.

If you just want to be able to copy files between your pc and your phone, the easiest and one of the best is this method which I use all the time: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/41583/how-to-transfer-files-between-your-pc-and-android-phone-wireles...
