The Samsung USB Drivers are required to have the Samsung Galaxy On5 Pro smartphone communicating with the computer when it is plugged into the computer with the USB cable. All Windows computers need the USB Drivers, and for Samsung devices, they are usually universal these days which means the one file is going to work across a multitude of devices.
The Samsung USB Drivers act as a bridge for the smartphone and the computer so that data can flow and be transferred from one to the other. That also means the drivers are what is helping a device connect to the computer and use apps that are running on that computer. Developers are always on the computer doing things that require the device to be connected so for them the Samsung USB Drivers are imperative.
A Windows computer has a way of letting people know if the drivers are not working, and that is by showing you an Unknown Device message. That means Windows doesn’t know what the device is and therefore will not issue it with any functionality simply because it cannot yet. What most people do not know is that a Windows computer is programmed to try automatically to figure out what device is connected and then install the drivers for it automatically. That usually works for things like connecting the Samsung Galaxy On5 smartphone to the computer with the USB cable and then transferring music, video or pictures. However, it doesn’t usually work when doing tings like running on the Odin flashing tool and rooting, installing a custom recovery or even just flashing a stock ROM from Sam Mobile.
If you are one of the unlucky ones who doesn’t get the Windows operating system managing to install the drivers automatically, or if you are doing something more geared towards developing, you can install the Samsung USB Drivers on the computer manually instead. The manual option is one of the easiest installation you will find, and it doesn’t even require the knowledge of how to extract a file.
