    I'm assuming you have the USB debugging mode checkmarked.

    You will also need to download the driver software from samsung. The "usb mode" changes when you go into download, and the drivers to let windows see the microsd card won't work for that. Also try a different cable, usb port, or even a different computer failing that.

    I have installed and uninstalled and reinstalled the the USB drivers from the link provided in the youtube video. I have tried different usb ports and I have tried other usb cables. I only have a laptop so I can't try another computer.
