    Try "Airdroid". In the google market (I refuse to say Play Store, I am older than 5). It uses wifi to connect to your pc.

    There are times that, in my line of work, I need to transfer files and do not have access to wifi.

    plugged mine in...took a good 5 minutes with the bubble saying "found new hardware" then it said to restart the computer...did that and reconnected and it asked to do it again...went through the same thing again...restarted and it worked but it didn't show up as a drive letter on mine but some text...can't remember what it called itself but worked like a charm then...

    I had the same problem.

    Google search and try installing these to files and see if it works.

    Alternatively, you can download the USB driver directly from Samsung on their support website (this link is for the Verizon model, although they should all be the same).

    No, the S3 still cannot connect to PC with usb. Downloading the usb driver directly from the Samsung website does not work.

    I'm curious where do you put music once you are connected. All i did to connect was plug in the phone. It downloaded the drivers automatically and said device is now working. My phone shows up and is connected. I see phone and card. open card and see DCIM and Lost.DIR. But I don't know where to put the music. Does it need to be in a specific folder, or just drop everything on the SD card. each album in its own folder? Thanks.

    I already mentioned this in my reply above but download and install the Samsung Kies file and it should work. At least it did for me.

    You can just drop everything on the card, but your best option is to create a folder called "Music" on the card. Then you can drop everything in there.
