    im a service manager for sprint. type in the dial pad ##3424# click on the usb setting button and select the second option from the bottom this will fix the problem. your welcome
    I have a black Samsung S4 Mini Sprint and I tried this. The 2nd to last option was RMNET +DM + MODEM and it was already selected but my phone was never detected on any computer. I changed it to MTP option which was the 1st option for me and that was it. My phone is now detected on my PC, and drivers installed with no problems the first time it was detected. Thank you.

    Created an account just to thank you for this. Still wondering how on Earth you could have figured this out but nevertheless it worked (after searching around for ages too) Cheers!

    I'm having the same issue with my Sam Galaxy s4. I tried 2 laptops, 2 usb cables and all that happens is the phone begins to charge. I brought my laptop to work today to troubleshoot this. After reading this thread, I will go directly to the cell phone store up the block before I start downloading drivers. My original cable was destroyed recently. I will respond in a few hours.

    Is your laptop a work laptop. I have the same issue with my work PC, unless your logged in as an admin, your device will not show up on the laptop as it is most likely restriced as mine is. When I log in as admin, it works.
    Best of luck

    How exactly do you input *#0808#, into your phone pad? What button do you apply for the enter button? When I input the sequence and hit send it just connects and goes into an error phone. Please explain in detail. ...thank you

    Four years later, me too.
    Cables that had worked were not working. Same as many in the thread I disabled all names for the device, reinstalled drivers, etc. No luck, but I purchased what was described as a genuine Samsung cable for a few dollars from China, and I'm all set, uploading again.
    The cables do wear out (get loose) so if this happens again I'll buy another cable again.

    Hey, thanks for the hint!
    I have exact same problem like you guys. I have Samsung Galaxy S4 which is not recognized by my Win 10 PC at all. I used the OEM USB cable came with the box (that white cable for charging). I tried everything, removing/re-installing drivers, KIES etc, doesn't work. Until I found another USB cable that came with a Lenovo tablet made in China, amazingly it works like a charm. Once connected, my Win 10 computer detect it immediately.
    I wouldn't say this S4 is a junk comparing with other modern android devices, but man, Samsung really needs to take care small things like this cable, or earbud. Those small accessories are easy to break and quite annoying when they are not working.
