    I spoke with sprint chat they suggest installing the phone software onto my pc via the CD that came with the phone.
    I know if your using a mini USB cable you can't transfer files . You need a USB transfer cable .

    Hi there,

    I can't connect my phone to my PC via USB. It used to work but the connection was sometimes faulty. It would connect and disconnect constantly which was a real pain and eventually it just stopped working altogether. I have a Samsung Galaxy S4.

    I have tried many different ways to fix this problem but none of them have worked! I even tried another computer but it failed to install the drivers. Is it the USB cable that's faulty or what? I usually used the USB to transfer music from my PC to my phone. I haven't been able to connect my phone to my PC in a long time and I don't know what else to do!

    Hey, i know this is an old post but there is a very simple solution to this, if this does not work please use one of the other methods.

    Set you're phones USB mode to File transfer, this message is most probably set to Charge mode, which doesn't allow the computer to see files on the PC. this was added on Android 6.0 to disable public chargers to take info from your phones.

    Does the computer have a pop up when you plug the cable in that's asks how you want to use the device if not in my experience the problem is with the Android debugging bridge and it needing to be turned off. Also try going to the device manager in your computer find your phone when it's connected it'll either be under the USB plug USB ports or as a mass storage device and see if you can manually update the drivers through your device manager.

    Anyone have any solutions!?! This is kind of a joke... Phone use to work when I connected a USB plug from my phone-computer & clicked "File Transfer" Now it doesn't

    When I click it I hear the noise notification on my computer but nothing comes up. Then when I do "Photo Transfer" that works. Anyone know what to do!?!

    I am having this problem right now! I cannot transfer files to my pc, which has windows 10. I have done it before with my phone but now it isn't working, don't know why. The list of options that usually shows up after you plug in the USB cable doesn't actually show up, I have dragged down the notification bar and still nothing, tried using different cables, still nothing. Tried using different computers, still nothing. My phone? Now this one probably is unknown to you unless you live in the UK... cuz it is British-made android phone called EE Rook. The system is up to date, I have already checked for those and there isn't any.

    Anyone help? Need it ASAP!!!
