Galaxy S is one of the best Android devices in the market but it certainly is not a flawless device. We already know about its GPS bug and now another issue has surfaced – the phone reportedly crashes and cannot connect to Kies software if you have a file with more than 16-character extension.
Gizmodo France discovered this bug and it seems Samsung is also aware of it and are working on it. This is the official (translated) statement from Samsung France.
We discovered that in very limited circumstances does connect the Samsung S Galaxy to a PC via the utility Kies may cause an auto-reset of the product. This happens in cases where the product contains files whose extension includes more than 16 characters. Deleting these files remedy the problem.
