Technically it is your phone that is not being recognized by the computer and not the other way around. Usually the problem is due to your computer drivers not recognizing your USB device. The quick fix for this problem is to install Samsung Kies on your computer. This is a program that makes it easier for your data to be synced across multiple devices.

If this is not the issue it is possible that you are dealing with a faulty USB cord. Try another cord and see if this helps the computer recognize the files in your phone.

I want to be able to view all content on my SG5 from my new Windows 10 computer?

I want to be able to access all content on my SG5 from my computer and transfer files over my WiFi to and from any explorer window. Both the computer and phone recognize my WiFi network but I cannot view the files to move or to set sync settings. My phone does upload pictures to the photos app on my W10 computer but often they will not be recognized by my computer for days afterwards. I also can't get the photo from the photos app (or the phone directly) to my one drive "my pictures" camera roll folder. I always used to be able to see the phone content on my older W7 machine. Any thoughts?

Moving multitudinous media from my Samsung Galaxy 5S to my laptop?

Through sheer frustration I finally uninstalled Samsung's New PC Studio as it was unable to recognize my phone for the purpose of transferring media. Is there an easier way? I keep getting messages from Verizon that "my cloud is full", and from my email provider that there's no more room to download email messages! I've currently got it connected with its USB cable.

Unable to transfer data from my Samsung Galaxy J5 to my Laptop Lenovo?

Dear, I am not able to transfer data/photos from J5 to my laptop. I went through some of the forums and also downloaded KIES3 as suggested by a few. The Kies software says; to connect I must set the media device to media device (MTP) and unlock the device from the phone. I am really at a loss on how to do this action. I would really appreciate if you could guide me in this respect. Thank you for sparing your time to help me. No proper step by step guide is available, which being a new owner of Samsung J5, I'm unable to make or tail out of it!
