SOLVED (At least in my case)

The next time I connected the device to the pc it was not detected. I then unplugged the phone and followed these steps: settings>wireless & network> USB Utilities> connect storage to pc> plugged phone in. No dice; the phone is still not connected. What is going on here? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Got it to mount. I had to uninstall kies and the drivers, then I noticed that in C:\Program Files and in C:\Program Files (x86) there was still a folder in each called directory called "Samsung". I deleted the folders, restarted my computer, plugged in the Note, and it automatically installed the usb drivers and mounted as MTP.

Sometimes the way Windows behaves baffles me. It makes no sense. Anyway, SOLVED!

EDIT: Nevermind, it mounted the first time. Plugged it in a few minutes later and it wouldn't mount again.

Just adding on to say I have the same problem.

There are lots of people complaining around the web that their Note won't connect via USB. This seems to be a problem with the phone and not just a case of someone who can't find the menu.

I have 2 Macs and 2 PCs, have tried it on all of them, installed and uninstalled drivers, switched cables, switched to a powered hub, tried Kies, tried Heimdall, tried Odin, USB debugging on and off, Bluetooth on and off, tried the "connect storage to PC" option. Before and after the XXLB1 update. None of it works.

I'm thinking the phone is broken.

I guess i have to try to return it, which is going to be a huge PITA. Especially if the new one they give me has the same problem.

XXLB1 update? Do you have an international note?

I have a Spanish one. That's not international for me.

Hi,

I try to use "Android File transfert" on a mac but what ever I do he's not detecting the Note.

But using parameter > USB it works fine... So I can connect the Note but not by AFT, read somewhere that the phones have to be declared in the libMtp to be detected.
