    I plug in the phone, and the phone detects that it is plugged into the PC, however my PC doesn't detect that the phone is plugged in, I have downloaded pc studio 7 and tried scanning for my phone with that and it couldn't detect it either, I have no idea what the problem could be.

    Some phones after you connect them to PC will ask for authorization to connect to the PC. You sure your phone doesn't ask you anything when you plug it in? (check the display)

    Also by any chance you have Windows 8 Preview? Because it's full of bugs right now and barely has any proper drivers for devices.

    No I'm on windows 7, and my phone doesn't come up with anything. When it tries to connect, it comes up with:

    "- Make sure that the USB cable is compatible with your phone. For more information, refer to your phone manual or to the Samsung PC Studio 7 web page.

    - Make sure that you have selected to use Samsung PC Studio 7 mode or default mode on your phone. To change the mode, disconnect your phone and reconnect it to your PC. For more information, refer to your phone manual.

    - Make sure that the connectivity cable and the cable drivers are properly installed. If the installation of drivers has failed, they must be reinstalled.

    - Try connecting the cable to another USB port. Avoid using a USB hub unless it has an external adapter to supply enough power for connected devices.

    - Restart both PC and the phone and try to create the connection again."

    I have done/tried all of these, except the connectivity cable and cable drivers one as I wasn't sure how to do that.

    You usually meant to have a disc with drivers. Did you try to (re)install software from that disc?

    The problem that I'm not a Samsung person, I don't know how things work on your brand. I heard that on LG you MUST download a confusing application only then you will be able to transfer stuff on your phone. In Nokia you usually just connect it using USB cable = done, drivers will be found automatically..

    I'm just guessing that drivers are not installed on your computer for your phone, or your phone settings are not properly set up.
