    I have a note 2 I currently use- when I plug the usb in - in windows 7 I get the option to view files etc....

    I just bought a used sprint galaxy s5 from my ol ladys sister who had it hooked up at one of those corner wireless shops.

    I want to root it but read to make sure your pc recognizes it first- which it does not.
    Ive downloaded the latest usb drivers for the phone.
    Ive enabled debugging mode.
    Ive used the original supplied cord and also tried my note 2 cord.

    When I plug it in it recognizes it and detects drivers but the phone does not show up under my computer and I dont get the window popup asking if I want to view files etc.

    The s5 notification panel doesnt even show "usb connected as...."

    Getting really frustrated.

    Any ideas?

    uninstall then reinstall the drivers and try using another usb port on the computer. As oddly as that may sound, it has been known to be the root cause of connection issues (usb) when trying to read the device via the computer. Also, it wouldn't hurt to reboot the computer after installing everything.

    Let us know how that works.
