    Default GS3 just will NOT connect to PC..

    I've re installed drivers multiple times... USB debugging is enabled...restarted computer multiple times...The phone won't connect on any other computer also.

    So I'm guessing it's a problem in the phone somewhere..?

    The computer also says USB not recognized.

    This pisses me off because I really want to root this phone....

    Do you have Windows 8? Windows 8 is not compatible with the Samsung drivers and you will have to load them in compatibility mode.

    Here's what you need to do. Windows updates your usb drivers all the time and it sucks because it never fails to mess up the Samsung drivers. Here's what you should consider doing.
    1. go to your computers control panel / add and remove software (win xp) or programs and features windows 7.
    2. Uninstall Kies and Samsung drivers.
    3. When complete, restart computer and phone.



    4. Install the drivers on your computer but do not plug in your phone until it has completed.
    5. plug in your phone that is already started. It should now recognize your phone and at the bottom right corner say it is installing the software for your phone. click on view details. Several drivers should load and as it progresses green checks will appear when successful.
    Now you should be able to continue. Here is my guide to the root the AT&T Version. All required files and detailed instuctions can be found there. If you have any problems feel free to contact me through that thread. I am subscribed to that thread and will received notifications.

    When you connect your phone, do you see the pop up in the notifications area? And are you doing the pull down to select it so you can tell the phone to go into ptp or mtp protocols? By the way, I am using Windows 8 Pro 64bit and have no problems with my GSIII.

    To keep windows from updating the drivers:

    -Right click on my computer and choose properties.
    -advanced system settings from left side of window.
    -from the hardware tab click "device installation settings"
    -select "no,... Never install driver software from windows update.

    Remove kies and samsung drivers. Reboot computer.

    Reinstall drivers.

    If you have ever had Kies on your pc, try the Iobit cleaner which scrubs the registry and use the force uninstall to remove all traces of Kies.

    Sorry if this has been mentioned already, but have you tried a different cable? Ideally you should try one that you know works with another device.

    I have updated the drivers in all of my guides with the newest ones. Also updated the gs3 root kit zip with the newest drivers. They should all be updated now.

    This is truly the biggest pain in the *** I've dealt with. Thanks to Skunk for going into detail in more than one post how to fix this, for it is undisputed that he knows his stuff. However I have never been able to make the fix stick. As I stated prior its always hit and miss and I never know if my computer will recognize my device or not. It sucks...

    It's all well and good having the correct USB drivers and Kies but unless you check the settings on your device by entering *#7284# on your keypad its pointless.
    Make sure that URT is set to Modem and USB is set to PDA and not modem.This should fix all connectivity issues with your pc.
