    If you have WiFi download air droid. beats the heck out of having to plug in the phone to the PC.

    If the pins in your cable become damaged, it can prevent the phone from being recognized as a data storage device while still allowing power transmission for charging. Try another cable.

    If that fails, you may be running into a driver problem or conflict on the computer.

    There are two USB settings for the phone. When you plug the phone into the computer a notification shows in the bar. Click the notification and switch to the "other" USB setting. It should work then.

    I am having a similar issue with my Nexus when I attempt to plug it into my new notebook (Windows 8) it will chirp and start charging but is otherwise unnoticed by my pc. However when I plug it into my desktop which is Windows 7 using the same cord it reads as a media device and charges.

    You might need to download a driver for Windows8.

    I just thought of something and apologize for not mentioning it sooner: if you have set up any of the various screenlock options (PIN, Pattern, Password, etc), then you will not see the Nexus4 as a drive in Windows Explorer until you unlock the phone.

    I found that Win 8 did need the driver to be installed (from samsung's site) before it allowed it to be recognized. Charging will work since the USB port will provide that current regardless of whether the PC has the driver, or not. <-- as gnr_2 said.
    One of the few drivers that actually need to be loaded. I'm thrilled that Win 8 didn't make me install drivers (and the crazy bloated installation packages for my network printers)

    (also, as N4Newbie said, you will need to screen unlock your phone if it is locked)

    I stumbled upon this thread because I was having the same problem. (plugged in, charging, not registering as "connected to usb".) Turns out there was a Samsung USB update a couple months back. Went to samsungs site, then to dowloands, then to software, and there it was. Downloaded it to my PC, plugged my phone in again, and it was business as usual. Thanks everyone for the help! And I hope this helps anybody still having problems!

    OK, so if you are running windows you need to make sure you have the samsung usb drivers: Support - Sprint Cell Phones SPH-L700 | Samsung Cell Phones and you need to open up windows media player and update it. That should fix the problem, be sure to leave your device unplugged while doing these steps. To be safe just reboot your phone and computer after installing those. Report back if this worked, and if it didn't.

    I know it's been some time since anyone commented on here, but I figured I'd try my luck before posting a new post. I have the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus and am having the same problem. I updated/reinstalled all the drivers, have checked/unchecked USB debugging, rebooted the phone and restarted the PC and still cannot connect. It says "Connected as a USB" and the device shows up in My Computer when connected as PTP, but does not show up when connected as MTP (even though it makes the chirp sound and says "Connected as a USB"). Is there any solution for this? Is it possible it's the USB cable? Something I disabled in My Computer?

    Is your phone unlocked when you do all of this?

    You have to use the EXACT cord that came with your phone, not just one that fits. I tried everything else but it was the cord.

    That's patently NOT true! Some USB cables might be a problem - but it's usually because they're cheap as possible...

    More importantly, you have to make sure that you've downloaded the correct Samsung drivers to your pc.
