Score 24

can you check the drivers first.


But I want to root my phone which is only possible when usb is connected


my mobile samsung j5pro rotates 360 ani i have problem in usb too............


I cured mine, the PC did not recognise the J5, I had been using leads that worked on other devices, so I used the genuine lead that came with the phone and it was the end of the problem.


Thanks Peter Main.

It had me completely baffled. Tried your idea, and it worked straight away.

Hi, have you checked debugging? Tap "Settings" on your Samsung, find "Developer Options" and then click on "USB debugging".

If your PC still cannot detect it, you can try an app that connects your phone to PC wirelessly, for example, AirMore. Below is a video about how it works.

You can also use it to transfer files from Android to PC.

It is a free app and takes up little storage space. You can have a try!
