I've downloaded a driver called SAMSUNG_USB_Driver_For_Mobile_Phones. When I plug in my phone via USB-MicroUSB, the phones begins charging, but is not recognized by the computer. How do I get my computer to recognize the device, and how do I then connect it to Android Studio? I would really appreciate any assistance at all. Thanks!


  • Make sure that your USB cable supports data transfer.
  • Did you turned on 'Developer mode'?! Settings > About Phone > scroll to the bottom > tap Build number seven (7) times.
  • Yes I turned on Developer Mode. I didn't know that some USB cables didn't support that...I guess I will look around the house for another one! – Alex Brigham Jan 20 '16 at 15:20

    Found one, and yup. It was just the cable. Thanks! – Alex Brigham Jan 20 '16 at 15:23
