    The Samsung software does not like rooted devices. Rather you are running the stock ROM or not.

    Mine is set, from the factory as far as I know, to UART - PDA and and USB set to MTP + ADB, and I've never had any issues connecting to a PC. But it's interesting to know those options exist.

    Thanks.

    Thank you. This keypad solution was the only thing that worked for me. I had to change the settings *from* the defaults to something else, then *back* to the defaults. In my case URT set *back* to PDA and USB set *back* to MTP + ADB. Using Sprint for provider. Have not yet tried KIES post changes.

    all you gotta do is take out your extra sim card and connect then it will re-install the drivers and then plug your extra sim card back in again! easy

    Extra SIM card? On a Sprint GS3? (This is the Spring GS3 forum.) I'm confused.

    Just another example of people not reading and taking the risk of getting wrong advice.

    Try reformatting the SD card and see if it still causes problems.

    OK So, I had this problem too.
    My phone was not detected as MTP by the computer.
    My phone didn't detect that it was attached to a PC.
    On my PC --It didn't work.
    Another PC --It didn't work.
    Even another PC --It didn't work.
    Mac --It didn't work.
    Tried all sorts of things written on many websites. --It didn't work.
    There was no MTP option in the status bar. It just always charged using the PC.
    THEN... Finally 1 day, when I was looking at the back of my CPU (PC ) I saw my USB 3.0 Ports (the Blue ones). I had never connected anything to them. So,
    Tried on a USB 3.0 Port --It WORKED!
    My phone was immediately detected as MTP. The option showed up in the status bar. I could transfer files. But then- What about my USB 2.0 Ports?
    Then I did the following :
    Dialed *#7248# for the PhoneUtil options.
    Under 'UART' tap MODEM. Under USB, PDA.
    If this is already your setting, choose the another ones (PDA for UART and MODEM for USB) and then tap SAVE and RESET.
    Again dial *#7248# for the PhoneUtil options.
    Under 'UART' tap MODEM. Under USB, PDA. Finally tap SAVE and RESET.
    Your phone will now be detected as MTP with all types of USB Ports now.

    Tried everything multiple times. Uninstalled and reinstalled drivers, etc. Nothing worked.

    Then I tried this:

    Go to Phone app and Keypad. Type in code *#7284# which will bring you to the Phone Utility screen with PDA, Modem, and QualComm USB Setting options.
    Click the Qualcomm USB Driver option and select the MTP + ADB option a little message will appear @ the button of the screen saying saved, now just press the back button all the out to the normal screen.
    Then power off phone, reomove the battery, sim card (AT&T) and micro sd card, and put them back in.
    Power the phone back on and then connect it to PC with usb cable (the original that came with phone) and it works.

    THIS ACTUALLY WORKED FOR ME!!

    Thanks JD. I had this problem and tried everything else. Even rebooted several times. It must have been the power off that did it.

    OK now for some dumb user questions
    1. After typing #7284# do you take some additional action like presing the call icon? I'm on Sprint and if I call the #7284# I get a message telling me that I've dialed an invalid number. If I just enter teh #7284# and do nothing, nothing then happens.
    2. It is suggested to remove the SIM card - I cannot see my SIM card. I've looked at some videos telling me how to remove the SIM card but when I open my phone I see the module for the MicroSD but there is no SIM card module. I purchaed the 32GB phone and currently have not installed any extra memory.

    Did you type the Astrix first? *#7284#

    This SPH-L710 is a CDMA phone.
    There is no accessible SIM card.


    Be glad you bought the larger memory.
    My phone has started eating external uSD cards, it's very frustrating.
