    My problem is whenever I try to connect my S4 to my laptop (Windows 7), I hear that sound PCs make whenever a USB is connected to it, and my phone starts charging (so I know it's connected). But nothing else shows up on my PC. No autoplay. No "click to view folders". Nothing.

    I can't transfer data because, well, I have nothing to transfer it to.

    I tried changing cables, switched from MTP to PTP (and back) but still nothing.

    It did, however, work when I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers, but I have to keep repeating that everytime I need to transfer something, and quite frankly, it's very bothersome.

    I know of kies but I don't have wifi everywhere I go so I'd prefer to use the USB cable.
    (First time using android, don't really know much about it)

    I was puzzled by this when I first moved to the S4 from an earlier Android phone. I was expecting it to show up as a drive on the PC. What happens is that it does do so briefly (so you hear the USB connecting sound), and then after a minute or so becomes simply a device attached to the PC. You can see it in Explorer under Computer, listed under its device name, the default being SCH-I545.

    BTW, you also don't have to use a special procedure to disconnect it. You can just unplug it (though I still take a deep breath when I do so!).

    I have both of them checked.

    EDIT: Just installed SnapPea (the english version of wandoujia). Works like a charm.
    Thanks
