I was having the same issue with my Nexus 4, running Cyogenmod 11 on Windows 8. I was plugging in using a USB splitter and my phone would keep disconnecting within seconds of being recognized by LogCat / DDMS. Switching to a physical port on my machine did the trick. In my case the front USB ports worked fine.

You can try another way: wireless connection via Wifi. Some apps such as Airdroid, Web PC Suite can help you transfer files by Wifi. Connect the two devices by scanning a QR code, then you can send files between the two devices easily.

Without having the Android SDK/Android Development tools(ADT) environment it would be useless to have the ADB USB driver as matter of the fact that the ADB USB drivers are used to connect to Android Devices only through the ADB interface for development/debugging/root purpose . So as @bass has rightly said about the Android SDK you need to have it installed ...

I would really need more info to give you a precise answer, but I think I know what you are speaking of. When you move a file through MTP with your mouse, on your computer, your computer is not just moving the file... it is a totally different type of filesystem, and therefore has to basically read the file and write the file in new location. It is not the ...

You don't have need to keep debugging always on. In some devices it affects the charging of battery. When debugging is kept on, the charging speed becomes very low.... it'll take more than 5 hours to full charge.... if you have such problem then keep off usb debugging, ON it only when you need......

Yes, you can use a USB game controller without root and without needing any prior setup. Just plug it in and Android will recognise it. By default, the D-pad on the controller will work like a D-pad or trackball on the device itself (if you remember when Android phones used to have little trackballs built in), and it will allow you to move focus between ...

If you need an external microphone, and your device does not support USB audio (as Hiemanshu's answer suggests): A work-around would be using a microphone with the 3.5" audio jack. As headsets use that successfully, it should work. I've never tried, so theoretically a side-effect could be sound output gets blocked whith the device assuming you've got a ...

Android currently doesn't support USB Audio Paths. You can use USB Audio if you have a Nexus 5 with Android L Preview. Otherwise you are out of luck.

If your network is correctly setup, and both devices are on the same network then you can ping an Android device just fine. I've just tested it on my office network. If your network administrator has configured the network such that devices can't ping each other, then obviously it won't work. Similarly, it probably won't work if your phone is on mobile ...

In my experience, and my extensive reading on the subject, it seems to be related to the charger and not the cable, unless the cable is a non-standard USB cable. Samsung does not use a special cable for their micro-USB chargers, only their old devices with the Apple-like connector. The USB standard requires handshaking to negotiate more than 500 ma of ...

To answer some of your questions in your comments: The USB specification allows for a fifth channel, OTG (On-The-Go), to negotiate master/slave relationships. Some manufacturers remove the OTG channel (cheapo USB cables are notorious for this), and, subsequently, charging negotiation is halted if the device is trying to send data through it. Some early ...

Most probably the USB cable is not supporting the Samsung device. Not all OEM USB cables support other OEM Android devices. It may work with Nokia USB Cable but not with the Nexus because the design of the pins is not matching. For this you cannot open the USB cable and change the design or something what you can do Is to try another OEM USB cable like ...
