Mp4 video files don't transfer to my Windows 7?

Hello, I'll try your steps to fix in your article, but Windows 7 doesn't transfer the video files. My S4 displays the video files when I use the app "my files". I was able to transfer both easily several months ago, now the mp4 files won't transfer. Is this a Windows 7 driver problem with my S4? Thanks.

We have a comprehensive article on how to back up Samsung devices. Please click here to read it.

If that still is not enough for you, then you can root your phone by using an online service such as OneClickRoot or KingRoot and download and install Titanium Backup. Please be aware of the necessity of rooting your new Galaxy S6 phone as well, which may void the warranty, depending on your location. Within the application, you will need to upgrade to the Pro version by tapping on the "Upgrade to Pro" button. This is a paid service. Tap on the upper-right sheet icon to start backing up or restoring the data. Tap on "Back up" options to back everything up. Tap on the "Restore" options to restore everything.

It is better to keep the EXIF data and not rotate your pictures on Kies. Once they are on the computer, use any photograph viewer that utilizes EXIF information, which will automatically rotate the pictures as required, like FastStone Image Viewer. You can also batch-rotate pictures in these viewers if you wish to view them in programs that do not use the EXIF orientation information. Just open any picture in FastStone or ACDSee (a photograph viewer too) and press "Enter" to enter the mode where you can select the images and rotate them.

See more questions like this: Why won't my videos transfer from phone to PC?

My phone is saying it's completely full and won't let me access my videos to transfer them?

How do I find the videos on the computer once it's connected?. I have tried: Nothing yet. I think it was caused by: I was recording a video when my phone stopped and said there';s no more left. I tried uploading to Google drive but it seems so full that it won't even let me do that.
