    I can`t connect Note 4 to my pc via usb . I don`t get or see an option to set this as a media device when I plug into my pc. It shows up and is also recognized as Android ADB Interface...
    It`s something with my phone, my computer, what ? o_O

    A more simple solution involves going into the device's settings, heading over to storage, and then selecting the menu option that involves USB connection. The headers for each section might be different, but you'll be presented with the option to make your device a Media Device (MTP) or Camera (PTP), and MTP should make your computer recognize the Note 4 as a media device. The setting should be remembered as a default so that every time you connect a computer and Note 4 by USB, the file manager pops up immediately.
