How to get files off internal storage on Samsung Galaxy S4?

I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 that the screen went out on. I'm trying to get some songs off the internal storage so I can transfer them to my new phone. When I connect the phone to a USB cord and connect to my laptop, I see the device listed as a portable device, but nothing comes up. I have already taken out the mini storage card that was in it, which is where I thought all my songs were, but they must be internal on the device because my new LG G3 doesn't see them on the transferred storage card. Do I need special software to see the internal storage on the Samsung Galaxy S4? Thanks.

Since your screen is broken, you will need to download additional software in order for you to retrieve your Samsung Galaxy S4's files. The easiest and most reliable application to use to do this is Samsung Kies. Samsung Kies is a Samsung-created application that is designed to work with your device and allow you to transfer files to your PC easily. Click here to download and install the original Samsung Kies. Note: Do not download Samsung Kies 3, since that is a newer application that is not compatible with your phone. Once the original Samsung Kies is downloaded and installed, plug your device into your computer and follow the onscreen prompts to transfer your device's data to your computer.

I am having trouble transferring files from my Samsung Galaxy S4 to my computer?

When I open the device on the computer to view the files, most of the files are empty or not there. I am trying to transfer pictures and videos to free up storage space (my phone isn't working correctly due to lack of storage) but the photos and videos on my phone aren't showing up on my computer to download. The files show empty or does not show at all. Only my screenshots and downloads are showing up.
