    Ive tried numerous things to get it to show up on my pc so i can transfer files, but nothing has worked so far.

    no option shows up in the status bar
    changing wires doesnt help.
    rooted it,witch worked despite not showing up on my pc
    didnt show up in kies (pre and post rooting)

    the note 4 had to get unlocked for me to use it in the first place.

    ive ran out of ideas, so im willing to try from step one if anyone is willing to walk me along

    I posted this question yesterday but couldn't figure out how to respond.also i may have forgot to clarify that i didn't just mean my computer, i meant "My Computer" as in the location to access the disk drives.

    Welcome to Android Central! Does it connect to other computers? If not, it's possible there's a problem with the phone's microUSB port. Make sure there isn't any debris lodged in there. The contacts or circuits themselves might be damaged as well.
    It charges and the drivers detect it when its plugged in.again, i was also able to install root so its ability to except data isn't compromised. can it still be the port?
    its detected in Devices and Printers as an unspecified device.

    if anyone else comes around this issue, There's an app called Shareit that lets you set up a WLAN connection but you need to install it on the phone and PC(didnt see a MAC version).

    Its not a solution, its just a workaround, im not sure if its limited yet but it works, fast.

    Plug into computer, your phone's notification bar will display "connected as installer".
    Drag the notification bar down and tap the notification.
    Check the box for "media device (mtp)" and you will be able to see a folder for internal storage, as well as one for an SD card if there is one installed.

    The notification bar is also known as the status bar.

    FWIW, I cannot connect to my Note 4 thru my Windows 7 64bit desktop computer. I can, however, connect without issue to my Windows 8.1 laptop.

    This has been an ongoing issue since my Note 3. Others have also had this issue.

    I'm not sure if there's something specific on my desktop computer, but there's nothing obvious.

    I had same problem, it's the usb cable! Use a Samsung usb cable, some of the cheaper ones leave out a contact.

    Check out the app Portal. No need for messy wires, just wifi and you good to go.

    Does your PC have bluetooth? That's how I connect my Note 4 to my computer to transfer files. If your PC doesn't have bluetooth you can buy a bluetooth dongle.
