Like the OP I haven't done a complete search to figure this problem out. YES I've down loaded the USB driver and still no luck. What I want to know is what the heck was Samsung thinking when they messed this up. The Phone should look like a simple memory device. Not something special. What morons!!!!!

Try unplugging and rep lugging it in a few times. Mine usually takes 2-3 tries before it recognizes.

My phone defaults to Installer Mode for USB connections. May want to try changing it to MTP mode. As others have noted the drivers are needed.

Sounds like a driver problem. May want to try Kies. If I recall correctly it has a connection/driver troubleshooting tool.
