my galaxy s4 can't seem to have a stable connection with my PC. it works
so far what I've done
-plugged it directly to the motherboard usb port
-used samsung original cable
-install all USB drivers (installer, kies)
-uninstall, reinstalled drivers but no avail
-used different cables. ( the original cable doesnt seem to work. whenever i plug my device, it only charges. but there is no notificcation that tells me the phone and PC are connected to something) and then i used a motorola cable and the phone and PC seem to detect each other. but only in one of the motherboard ports.
and also, if ever the PC detects my phone, the "connect/disconnect" loop appears... the "connect/disconnect" loop DISAPPEARS when i plugged the phone to a specific port. BUT, it cant seem to have a stable connection. whenever i transfer a large file, lets say a movie. it copies the file half way then the phone suddenly disconnects then reconnects by itself automatically like nothing happened. I couldn't also flash firmwares cuz whenever odin tries to push the files into my phone, suddenly odin will stop and says "disconnected"..... by the way, my PC's usb ports are OK. it can detect and transfer large files from my brother's optimus G and my sister's motorola droid with no problem. I have used this PC for flashing my previous phones with no problem (SGS2, SGS3, SGS1, Gnex, NOTE2, SGmini, china tablets). Yes i do change phone frequently.
can someone please enlighten me on this..and oh! by the way, I tried flashing and transferring files from my gf's laptop and there seem to be no problem at all... I even used the original samsung cable which doesn't work on my PC at home. I would really like to flash my s4 with the latest 4.3 jellybean, and my gf is back in her home town for the sem break so I can't use her laptop for now cuz she has brought it with her..
I would really any comments and insights will be highly appreciated. thank you!
