Pull down the notification shade and change the USB connection type from charging only to File Transfer.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

I have the same issue as OP, and changing USB connection type to File Transfer makes the DCIM folder visible in PC, but contents are not there (the photos are still on the phone). Changing connection type to Photo Transfer works to get files over, but file names and dates do not transfer correctly, so that's no good.
