I am running the June 19 build of a CyanogenMod based on version 11-20140620-Sultan-skyrocket (Android 4.4.4).

I was working to reorganize my music library and finally dump iTunes. I am experimenting with a new Music Player that requires a USB synch using MTP.

The main reason for the switch from iTunes is that a lot of my Music is Lossless encoded and it just takes up too much room on my phone. I could not find an iTunes synching solution that would transcode those large files to a smaller format during the synch process (unless I go with an iPod / iPhone).

When I switch my phone to MTP mode, the PC (Windows 8.1) does not recognize it. If I switch to Mass Storage (UMS) the phone shows up in the file explorer.

Any suggestions on how to get the MTP working would be appreciated.

Thanks

Go to device manager and look for the the icon with an exclamation mark, with your phone hooked up to usb. Right click on it and update software. Then go to where it says let me pick from a list..... Choose android composite adb interface. It'll ask you if your sure, just say yes.

Sorry for the slow reply and Thanks for the post. Unfortunately Windows would not let me update the driver in error in the Device Manager. It said it was an unrecognized USB Device and would not browse for additional drivers. I tried every way I could think of to "force" it.

Just to help determine what might be going on, I restored the ATT / Samsung ICS using CWM. Unfortunately I am having similar issues with that. Sometimes the USB connects and sometimes it is unrecognized. I tested the cables and my Windows 8.1 PC with my Galaxy 5 (stock ATT KITKAT) and everything seems to work fine. I guess the micro USB port on my phone must be going bad.

Thanks again
