Driver for Samsung GT-S5600

I am trying to find the above Driver for a friend, we are currently working together on TeamViewer but not having much joy.

Driver(s) required for connecting Mobile Phone to PC.

I don't seem to be able to get anywhere with the Samsung Site!

Can anyone please help??

TIA!

I'm guessing, as I can find no (reputable) source of a GT-S5600 driver, that you may have to download the whole (54MB...) of Samsung's PC Studio software - from here for example.

Thanks for your input, I have suggested that link to my friend, who is out at work at the moment. Will let you know how she gets on later.

Go direct to Samsung support UK, input the GT-S5600 and you can download Samsung New PC Studio, PC Sync from there.

However why is the driver required? Is it a connection problem with the PC? Some of these phones can be quite flaky with their connection. I have a Galaxy which syncs with my W7 desktop 9 out of 10 times but refuses to talk to my Vista laptop but was fine with my old Vista desktop.

PS - I tried the Samsung site earlier, but the site itself was having problems.

Are there any errors shown when connecting? My phone takes a long time to connect on a fast PC. Worthwhile waiting a few minutes.

I have just followed the instructions for downloading the Samsung New PC Studio as suggested by Woolwell and it is now installed on my PC. It looks totally different from both the S/S PC Studio 3, and S/S PC Studio 7, and I cannot see how to synchronise my Windows Address Book with my GT-S5600 mobile phone. There is a widget (a term I've never heard of before) for Outlook Sync which I clicked to add on, but nothing happened after that. Can anyone please explain what I should do to synchronise them?

Windows Address Book - is this Windows XP?
