Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is finally reaching customers all over the globe with sales going pretty strong for the phablet. Galaxy Note 4 is a great update in terms of specifications including the new Quad HD Super AMOLED display which is spectacular. Android 5.0 Lollipop update is imminent but right now it is running Android 4.4.4 KitKat which paired with TouchWiz yields an excellent experience. Samsung has its own proprietary USB connection software and drivers which improve security and avoid misuse of the device. Most of the new users will have some troubles connecting their device to their computers (Windows or Mac). Solving those issues, we are presenting you a quick guide which explains how you can install USB drivers without installing the full Samsung KIES suite.

USB drivers for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 are the same as other Samsung Android devices. Sadly, Android has left the mass storage option out of it’s latest builds for security and various other reasons. However, these Android devices do support “Media device (MTP)” which allows you to add or remove files from your internal storage. MTP drivers are always included with the stock Android phone software. ADB drivers and Fastboot drivers will need to be downloaded from the Android SDK. We have an entire section full of Android USB Drivers, but we have that covered as well for you below on how to download and install the drivers.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 USB Drivers for Windows

Like we said, the USB drivers for Galaxy Note 4 are always bundled with Samsung KIES or MTP drivers are part of the Android 4.4 KitKat / Android 5.0 Lollipop software that comes with the phone. For transferring media content, photos and other files from your phone, you need to have a micro USB cable (preferably the one you got with the phone) for the phone.

  • Recommended: Download and install Samsung USB drivers first for Galaxy Note 4!
  • Connect your Galaxy Note 4 with the computer using that USB cable.
  • Now wait for the computer to recognize the device.
  • Several drivers including the modem, MTP service etc. will be installed automatically.

Once finished, you will see a new media device in My Computer. You can now transfer photos, music, videos or any other files from and to your Galaxy Note 4 USB memory.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 USB Drivers for Mac

Connecting your Galaxy Note 4 USB memory on a Mac is also easy. If you have been a Nexus device user on a Mac previously, then this Galaxy Note 4 should be no different for you. Make sure you have a Galaxy Note 4 and a micro-USB data cable (preferably, the one that came with the phone). Follow these quick steps:

  • Recommended: Download and install Samsung USB drivers first for Galaxy Note 4!
  • Download Android File Transfer and install it on Mac OS X.
  • Connect your Galaxy Note 4 with the USB cable.
  • Wait for the phone to get connected and drivers to be installed.
  • Android File Transfer window will automatically open up with your internal phone memory directories.

Alternatively, you can also use Samsung KIES for browsing through your internal storage and transfer file easily.

That’s it! Pretty easy solutions, eh? Let me know if you run into any problems and we’ll try our best to sort it out.

    I have a Galaxy Note 4 (Sprint)
    and I just can’t get fastboot to work properly. ADB works perfectly but
    not fastboot. “Fastboot devices” returns nothing at all. “fastboot flash
    recovery recovery.img” just stops at “”.

    Is there something special I need to do to get My GN4 into fastboot mode? Download mode doesn’t help. Where am I going wrong?

    Thanks
