I bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3. Upon connecting to the PC, some of its drivers were not installed. I'm using the Tab for the first time. Developer mode/option is checked.

I want to run my apps on it, but it is not recognizing it. So, how do I re-install the drivers?

  • Did you try unmounting any storage? Settings > Storage > [Menu]: make sure all boxes are unticked. – LyricWulf Dec 24 '14 at 0:52
  1. Download and install the Samsung Android USB Driver for Windows. (It's the zip file at the top of the page.)

  2. Go to Settings > Security > Unknown Sources and check the box.

  3. Turn on USB debugging in Developer Options.


Download Samsung Kies, and install it. It will install all the drivers you need, plus the Samsung Kies software, where you can do back-ups and other phone management tasks.

Please try the following:

  • Unmount any USB storage: Settings > Storage > [Menu] > USB Computer Connection: make sure all boxes are unticked.

  • Ensure that you have enabled USB debugging from Settings > Developer Options > USB debugging. After enabling it, you should see an ongoing notification that it is enabled when you connect it to your PC.

  • Ensure that you have the latest Samsung USB drivers for your device.
