I had same problem. I did the following to solve that and it worked.
(1) Go to C:\Windows\INF
(2) Type "wpdmtp.inf" in search bar provided to the right of the address bar in Windows 10.
(3) Once you found it, just right click on it and select install. It will take a very few seconds.
(4) Connect your device to the pc.
Done.

1. Close Kies, if open on your computer
2. Disconnect your phone from the USB port on your computer
3. Ensure USB debugging is selected on your Phone
4. Edit the Registry - Regedit
5. Locate - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\
6. Right Click 'Class' folder - Select 'Export' - Save as 'Class.reg' to any backup location
7. Select 'Edit', 'Find' - desect 'Keys' and 'Values' in the 'Look at' - type in 'portable devices' in the 'Find what:' field [Hit Enter]
8. It should be found at 'EEC5AD98-8080-425f-922A-DABF3DE3F69A', possibly last subfolder in the 'Class' folder
9. If you see UpperFilters in the 'Name' column .. Delete it.
10. Plug your phone back into the computer via USB
11. The driver should be automatically installed
12. If not, toggle back and forth between Media device (MTP) and Camera (PTP) on your Phone USB PC connection settings, the driver should install automatically - Finished. If you want to use Kies, you should now be able to launch Kies and it should connect automatically.

15. Plug your phone back into the computer via USB
16. The driver should try to install and automatically Fail
17. Disconnect your phone from the USB port on your computer
18. Now delete the UpperFilters in the 'Name' column .. that you just created

Hope this helps!

Thanks:good:

It must not always be the fault of the windows machine. In my case I got the chance to crosscheck with another android phone and it worked.
So my solution was to clear dalvik cache inside mobile with all the hassle afterwards, restoring several apps and data from the backup. But now my chinese phone talks to me again.
Just a hint for those people, that suffered from no working solution.

So I tried pretty much everything in this thread for my Galaxy A3. Then I did two things that somehow kicked it into gear:

1. Ran CCleaner (free version). Amongst other things, this removed a bunch of registry keys, some of these were left over from a Kies uninstall.

2. Rebooted my system with the USB cable still plugged in. As soon as I logged in, the device was recognised.

Not sure which one it was that did it in the end (or if it was both), I'm just glad it works now. No 2 was by accident, but it makes sense that the process Windows goes through is slightly different at boot. Just wish I had thought to try it earlier.

Additional note. I am running Windows 7 on VirtualBox. Before I found this thread, I saw this bug report here - virtualbox.org / ticket / 16850 (can't add a proper link since this is my first post). Don't know if the underlying issue affecting me was VirtualBox related or otherwise.

I am wondering if the problem of this topic is related to Samsung devices being rooted and/or having custom ROMs.

Worked instantly for my Galaxy S7 Edge by deleting the lower filter in EEC5AD98-8080-425f-922A-DABF3DE3F69A.
If you do not have an upper filter, delete the lower filter or both. Apparently, both cause issues in the registry.

    Hey people...
    Just wanted to post a solution to a problem apparently a lot of users are experiencing...

    When you first attach your phone to the pc by USB, the drivers have to be installed. (Here is a good ressource, where you can always dowload the latest drivers extracted from the Samsung Kies Package: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1655286)

    Now it could happen, that all of the drivers install successfully, but one of them, the "Samsung Mobile MTP Device", which cannot be installed, since there's always a CODE 10 (This device cannot start).

    As I searched for quite a while for a working solution with no luck (there are different solutions, but none of them worked for me, as in my case it wasn't a faulty-driver problem...), i finally remembered a solution to a similiar case with a DVD-RW Drive. I tried the same process with my actual driver problem, and it worked right away... :good:

    HERE's THE SOLUTION:
    1. Go to the Registry Editor (Start --> Run --> "regedit" --> [ENTER])
    2. Search the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\
    3. If you click one of the few subkeys in class (e.g. {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}) you'll find the string value (Standard) on the right side with a value (e.g. DVD/CD-ROM-Drives)
    4. You have to find the value "Portable Devices" on the string value (Standard) (In my case {EEC5AD98-8080-425f-922A-DABF3DE3F69A}, but I don't know if they are called always the same.
    5. Once found, you see a string value called UpperFilters --> DELETE IT!
    6. Finished! :) Now your Samsung Mobile MTP Device should be recognized and even installed correctly right away. (The name of the device changed to GT-I9100 (Devicemanager) in my case...)
    Here an explanation about UpperFilters and LowerFilters if you want to know more: http://djlizard.net/2007/04/30/230/

    Maybe this short tutorial can save you some time... =)

    Best regards to all of you!

    Thank you for this, was trying to get a Samsung Galaxy Note to connect.
    After having to manually point it to the drivers folder, they installed but would not start.

    The registry keys seemed a little different to how you described, I am on Windows 7 64-bit, but found:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{EEC5AD98-8080-425F-922A-DABF3DE3F69A}\
    Deleted the value "UpperFilters", plugged the USB back in, and it worked!

    Now can happily sync using the Samsung Kies software.

    ( Note to others, backup first, right click the key tree you are editing, choose export. Run the .reg to restore any screw ups. )

    How I fixed the error. Another way to try.

    Hi.

    I found this with google over the site transformerforums.com /forum/guides-tips-tricks/34852-how-solve-mtp-issues-all-android-devices
    (I`m not allowed to post links here)

    And i went into Settings > More > Application Manager > All

    Look for Media Storage, and clear the data.
    Look for MTP Application, and clear the data.

    After that, just to be sure, I restarted the device, and... (only after it all I realized I left the phone pluged on the PC, and seems not to make a difference). :p

    After phone boot up, I unpluged and pluged back in, and all drivers installed the right way.

    I hope it help some of you guys. :fingers-crossed:

    Update your windows media player

    I am having Windows XP SP3 and I was experencing the same USB MTP installation failure, I updated my Windows Media Player and it fixed the problem. The option in Windows Media Player Help->Check for updates was not working, so I downloaded Media Player from Microsoft webiste and installed it and after that driver is now working fine.
