I have been pulling out my hair on this trying to get a fix, and it seems that every time I get close....I hit a huge wall that stops me dead in my tracks. My screen was broken recently, I received my replacement promptly. However, I forgot that for about two weeks all of the pictures, video, and files were saved to my phone. I saved them to the phone because my SD card was full of music etc. SO.... I have downloaded Android AVD and from what I understand, by connecting the USB there should be some way that I can see my screen on my computer since I am not able to view it on the actual phone because of the damage. I also tried Power Data Recovery tool and it doesn't recognize that my device is plugged into the computer. When I go to my computer I see SGH-T9999 but when I click it, the folder is empty.
