With the Samsung USB drivers working properly, you can connect any smartphone or tablet to the computer and transfer files from the computer to your device. It’s the USB drivers that act as a bridge or gateway for your files to travel from one device to the other. By default, there is no gateway in place to allow for this file and data transfer to take place in a Windows operating system environment. However, with a little work, you can install the Samsung Galaxy J1 USB driver on your computer and successfully transfer all files like music, video, pictures, MP3, firmware build and other data.
