Default Galaxy not showing USB Connection

I have a samsung galaxy s3 that I have connected to my computer both my mac and my pc several times to sync with isyncr and it has always worked up until a few days ago. Once I plug in the usb it shows that it is charging but it will not show that it is connected as usb and isnt recognized in isyncr. Anyone else have this problem and know how to fix it?

Welcome to the forums redefined12. You should try something simple first. Power off your phone completly then turn it back on and try syncing again.

Sorry for taking a while to respond back. Been busy with school. So I've tried powering my phone on and off and syncing multiple times. Any other ideas?

And have you checked to see that you have the latest drivers for your phone installed on your computer?

I'm not too familar with Macs.
On your Windows computer, go to Samsung's web page, look for your phone, and when you go to the product page for your phone there should be a "downloads" tab towards the bottom.
Click it and download the file (which should be the latest driver).
