You might want to try a different USB port to see if the port is the culprit. If that doesn't work, try using a different USB cable.

You should also download Samsung Kies, as that facilitates syncing your Samsung device with your PC. It might be able to detect your device more easily.

I'm trying to transfer some videos from my Samsung S4 to my PC, with no luck?

I can't find on my phone where to play videos to "select" them. My Image viewer will not allow me to go into it until I delete some files. I transferred all my photos and deleted them, but I'm still unable to proceed
