When you connect the phone and computer with the USB cable, do you pull down the phone's notification shade and change the USB mode to File Transfer?

I'm having the same issue.  Does NOT give me the option to change to file transfer.  Just takes me to the battery screen

Have you tried smart switch or Kies to transfer you music and pictures to your computer? Also do you have the developer options activated? Go to settings- about phone- tap build number I think about 7 or 8 times.Then go into developer option and go down to usb debugging and turn that on. Hopefully this will help.
