Galaxy S4 as a USB Device

This is to attempt to assist someone who is having issues with their Samsung Galaxy S4 USB connection on Windows 7 64 bit.

Plug the phone, and the Operating System should see it and begin to install drivers.


Once complete, run Windows Explorer and you should see your device in the drive tree. Mine is named "Mobile Office".


From here you should be able to expand the drives out and copy files on and off of the phone just like any other USB drive.  If you are having issues, go into the options menu.

 You should see "Connected as a media device". Touch the menu for the USB options.

Make certain that Media device (MTP) is selected.
