People don't want to have to do work.
Most common example: All I used to do was plug in my iphone and it did it for me...

Under Manuals/Downloads --> Click Software

After you install the drivers, connect your Note using your USB cable. If your Note doesn't show up on the computer as a removable hard drive, open up your Note with the USB cable still plugged in --> pull down your notifications bar --> select the USB "Connected as an Installer" option --> Check "Media device (MTP) option

Hope that helps.
This is all I have ever done. Used those exact drivers on multiple computers, two at work and one at home. Works fine no matter what cable I use. In fact I have never used the factory cable.

I don't have to use the cable it came with, which is lucky since I bought it used without the cable.

ive never had any issue using any usb cable, I kinda find it hard to believe. My notes cable hasnt left its charger by my bed since It, I use an htc cable on my laptop, a old moto one on my xbmc box, and another random cable on my ps3.

seems kinda odd.

Default Still pretty upset with Samsung

OK Guys, I apologize if i hurt some feelings out there, but come on!... don't you think that for a flagship phone Samsung should make it easier for users ... by the way I tried the cable and it finally did all the drivers installs, but i still cant plug and play (it only hooks up as camera), now it tells me that i have a """"HARDWARE ID MISSING""""" after researching , I un-instal the newest driver , installed an old version 1.4 , 1.5 , etc, etc and STILL" no luck , I check on the USB connection as media device and it goes back to camera ... any new advice....
I'm Not Afraid Anymore......

Dude I think this is user error. My wife is so computer illiterate and she still has no problems using her phone. By the way this is even her first smartphone. For the record both mine and hers we just plug in and started browsing the files. It was just plug and play.

For your problem, what os is your computer and I don't see it mentioned but are you stock still?
