    Do you have USB debugging checked in developer options?

    Try removing and reinstalling drivers or install Kies and let it install driver.

    ^^^^ That. (and try a different USB port on the computer - on a desktop, try to use the ports on the back of the motherboard)
    Also, check to see if you have the Samsung USB drivers installed.

    I don't think USB debugging is required to connect phone to PC (I've used Odin, and have transferred files using regular explorer and never had USB debugging enabled)

    I ran into a similar problem when my SD card was acting up. If your SD cannot mount the phone will not actually connect to the computer. The way to find out if this is the problem is easy, just remove your SD and try the computer and see if it works!
