I found the solution: Check the VirtualBox version and go to their website and update the extension pack. This is on a Fedora 20 system and after updating the VirtualBox "extension pack" and uninstalling all the all the "Universal Serial Bus controllers" drivers in "Device Manager" of the guest(Windows 7), and then shutting down the guest and rebooting the ...

After struggling with this issue for many days, uninstalling Kies finally did the magic for me!

I decided to try ...

Enable USB debugging: Go to phone settings -> About -> Tap build number repeatedly until developer menu is enabled. Go there and tick USB debugging. On your PC, go to your device manager (You can find it in Control Panel, System) when the Phone is plugged in and set to MTP. Locate the phone, (it might come up as "Android Phone" if so open the tree a level. ...

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 ...

http://www.totalcmd.net/plugring/TotalAndDroid.html - this plugin does not give you a drive letter, but beside of this - does the job. You can see all files of your Android device on TC panel and do all regular operations.

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 ...

It could be the number of pins in the cable. I believe most Samsung compatible charging cable have 11 pins in them.

You can use ADB to forward the tcp connection: adb forward tcp:8080 tcp:8080

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 ...

Using the Bluetooth you can very well get it. After the bluetooth connection is established, you can use the bluetooth menu to activate playback of music from Phone on Computer, Receive call on Computer which you have a option to take it on the hand phone if you want ( this is available on the android phone screen page when the call is in activation) To ...

No. As far as I know, this is not possible. May be this can be done through custom application. But I think there is no app that does this, at least, for now.

Apologise for my ignorance as I dont have a Galaxy Note II but since you have the SAMSUNG Android ADB Interface I am presuming when you run command (and get this from google too) adb.exe devices Do you at least see a Serial Number?? I had a similar issue with my Nexus 5 and noticed I too have the same drivers however for my computer to connect to the ...

The two questions you link to are to do with different chargers, not the cables. If two cables both adhere to the USB standard, they're interchangeable. You can tell if a cable adheres to the standard, as it will have the USB logo on one or both of the plugs. It's not allowed to display the logo if it doesn't meet the spec. There are two cases where you ...

No issue but make sure do not use charger which is not your phone's

actually every apple device I saw, ONLY charges on apple's chargers and Macs, so I think the port is 'modified' to be used with apple devices, something to identify that the charger is from apple But when we talk about android, anything with >4.5 volts will charge the phone, but it depends on the charging current, plus, I have a tablet that doesn't charge ...

No, this won't cause any issues. I am having the same case as yours (using Xperia L's USB cable with a Nexus 4) and haven't faced any issues with Nexus 4 or the Xperia.

My experience is that it does matter, but it's not so simple, because not all Android devices are the same. Some Android devices will charge just fine from an Apple charger, some will charge slowly (regardless of amperage), and some will not charge at all. Plus, I've found that there is some variability among the Apple chargers. For example, I have a ...

Yes they are. They may charge normally, charge slower, or not charge at all.

In case anyone with a Samsung S4 running USB Mass Storage Enabler and Busybox runs into this issue, be sure that the USB computer connection is set to MTP. This setting sometimes toggles off for some odd reason on my phone. Click the text box and you should be good to go.

Try updating the driver in Device Manager.
