Are you enabling usb storage? When you plug it in pull the notification bar down and click on it then hit the button? Dont need drivers to access mass storage

Default Drivers

You have 2 options

You can download the drivers referenced here

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1307478

I had to enable USB Debugging to get it to work correctly with Windows 7.

But after that you can access both the SD card and the internal memory on the phone through Windows Explorer

Or you can use the Kies software and do it wirelessly. Details here:

Reboot phone and pc. Mine does that sometimes. I bought a mt4g new and it did that too me. Returned it and got a new one and it did the same. Reboot my pc and it worked. I felt like a tool.
