What is needed to connect the Tab Pro 12.2 to Windows 7 via USB? When I attempt to connect Windows doesn't recognize that a device is plugged in at all. I can't find a setting anywhere on the tablet to enable USB connection.

Things to know:
I've installed Kies 3 on the computer but it doesn't recognize the tablet being plugged in either.
I've installed the Samsung USB driver.
I've successfully connected the Tab Pro when in download mode since I was able to root it.
USB debugging is turned on (also tried it with debugging turned off).
Android 4.4.2, build number KOT49H.T900UEUAND4 (rooted)

What am I missing?

Unplug the tablet from your pc. In Kies 3, under Tools, reinstall usb drivers. Reboot pc. Connect the tablet to usb. See if that gets it working.

Thanks for the suggestion. Still no joy. It's like there's no MTP driver or something. When I plug it in to the USB port the tablet recognizes it as it "dings" and tries to charge (it can't because the USB port doesn't supply enough current). However, the pc never makes a sound and doesn't recognize any thing's been plugged in.

Is there some setting I'm missing on the tablet?

I doubt it's the tablet. Probably a driver issue with windows. Try a different cable (usb 2.0 or 3.0) and usb port on the pc

I have had this issue with my Galaxy TabPro 8.4 (similar device). Why don't you try reinstalling the software and drivers on your computer. Also, have you tried a different USB port? These simple techniques have solved the problem. Seems like a problem with your drivers.

Restart your device as well. A simple restart can clear issues.
