USB Connection Problem
I'm using two USB cables: I have the one that came with my device--when I plug it into the wall charger it charges quickly, but when I plug it into my my laptop it just charges the phone. I have another cable that I bought on Amazon which charges very slowly when plugged into the wall charger, but when I plug it into my laptop it just connects as a "media storage device" and nothing else.
Sometimes I can get my phone to run as a Mass Storage Device if I click Settings==>More Settings==>USB Utilities==>Connect storage to PC just before plugging the phone in with the Amazon cable. Sometimes it works for as long as I have it plugged in, sometimes it doesn't.
I just noticed this today, and everything worked just fine a couple of weeks ago. I'm running Android 4.1.2. I've heard there's a new firmware out there, and I was hoping it would fix this problem, but I can't connect to Kies (What POS software) via USB cable to backup my photos and contacts.
