This is crazy... why is the S4 so difficult to connect to PC via USB?

I've done some searching on this and people blame cables, media transport, etc...

-My S4 can connect to my work Win7 PC reliably so far (HP Desktop)
-My S4 can NOT connect to our home Win7 PC (Toshiba Laptop). Nothing shows in DeviceManager or FileManager. Rebboted PC and S4.
-Wife's S4 connected to our home Win7 PC one time, copied some files to it.
-Wife's S4 can NOT connect to our home Win7 PC any more (with same cable but since have tried two cables one being the original Samsung)

Has anyone found a reliable fix for this? My phone's flash is filling up with pictures/videos.

Are you using the stock cable to connect it ? I've never had any issue with it being recognized even with just the stock usb device driver. You might need to reinstall drivers and use the stock cord
