    This would lead me to believe it's a driver issue. However, did you try a different USB port and a different cable?

    You didn't answer how you fixed this problem. My Galaxy 4 Mini has the same problem. What did you do?

    Try with another USB port of your PC which comes directly from the motherboard of your PC. It worked for me. I think it's the problem of USB version.

    Assuming drivers updated, always connect phone with the home screen active, never in lock screen. If fails, then reboot phone connected to the pc, it should be detected now. Always work for me that way.

    Thank you so much for your fast response & suggestions, sorry I got lost for a couple days. I am still unsuccessful, let me give you a little history. I purchased & received a new Verizon Samsung S4 Mini 4-6 weeks ago, running Android version 4.2.2. My 1st time with a "smart phone". Also purchased a 64G Micro SD card with arrived 3 weeks later. Never has my computer running the 32 bit windows 7 Pro recognized my phone while charging the battery through it. I have downloaded Kies 3 times, each time preceded by deleting all Samsung drivers. I have primarily used the USB cable provided with the phone, although have tested other cables with no change of effect. I use a USB expander giving me 6 extra ports, but was instructed to try removing it, then check the phone. Rebooted the computer this time only using 2 USB ports, one for the cable to hook up the phone with & one for the mouse, no change in results. I have even removed my micro SD Card to verify it would be recognised when inserting a a reader. The computer recognized this. As you can see by the length of time for me to respond, this issue isn't extremely high on my things to do, yet I do want results. I would appreciate any help or advice. Thanks. Mike

    Then contact Samsung service centre or your carrier about this. Before that you try with another pc to make yourself sure if it's the problem of pc.
