Cannot connect E4GT to my windows 7 computer
So I'm another noob here with probably a stupid question, but I can't seem to find the answer anywhere. I rooted my phone, and it seems successful. But now when I go to connect it back to my computer to download new ROMs/apps, it no longer allows me to access the file directory of the phone. Windows gives me a message stating it cannot find the hardware ID of the phone. I figured there may have been an error in the rooting, so I unrooted, and the phone works fine, both on its own and when connecting to my computer. I went back and re-rooted, and am having the same issue all over again. All drivers are installed, by the way, and Odin can recognize the device.
I apologize if there's a FAQ section, but I haven't been able to find one, nor an answer to this question.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Try a different cable. One of thicker and better quality perhaps.Samsung cables tend to be thin and wear out easily, especially the micro usb ends. I have an old cable that I got years ago with a Blackberry that actually rarely gives me problems connecting. Sometimes you can try rebooting the device. And sometimes when I try to connect, my PC will make the sound it does when a device is connected, but it will not show. I just disconnect the cable, let it sit for a few minutes, and try again. That usually works. Try different USB ports also if you got any available.
