I have a AT&T Samsung Galaxy SG2 which I connect with my Windows 7 Pro machine. Sometimes it shows up on the computer, sometimes it doesn't. I downloaded the usb driver directly from the Samsung website. It said it already had it but I redownloaded it anyway.
I then got the message
Samsung Mobile USB comosite device  ready to use
Samsung Mobile MTP device  failed
Samsung Mobile USB modem  ready to use
I tried reinstalling the MTP driver a few different ways None of them worked.
The cell phone says that it's connected as a usb device.
This is blowing my mind.
How can I get this to work?

It's not a fix for the method you're using. I never had good luck connecting via USB. But do you have a wireless network? If you have a wireless network try using an app called Airdroid.
